We stayed on a room and dinner package for our anniversary last weekend which was outstanding value. Arriving at Danesfield was quite spectacular, it's a grand building set in beautiful grounds and sets up the stay nicely. Check in was professional and friendly, and the entrance lobby is old world charm at its best. We had a four poster suite which was tastefully decorated and a really good size, with huge windows, immaculate furnishing and the bathroom was functional and clean. There was an anniversary cake in the room which was a nice touch. We took breakfast in the room and the selection and taste was excellent, and the food had good heat to it still.
My wife had the Danesfield trilogy treatment in the spa (while I got acquainted with the bar) which she thoroughly enjoyed and said the staff were really friendly. The pool was amazing and the whole spa was clean and restful.
We had our evening meal in the Orangery which we really enjoyed. We started with a cocktail in the bar, where the bar staff are all friendly and good humoured and while having our drink, a lovely waitress came and gave us some menu’s, explained some of the dishes and was able to answer all of our questions (which doesn’t always happen at some of the other notable places in Berks/Bucks) so again, we were impressed. I had the pigeon and medjool date starter which came with a pastilla of confit pigeon leg, I thought this was amazing and as good as anywhere I had them in France, so good actually that I could have eaten a plate full! I was boring for my main and went for fillet steak which was super tasty and cooked rare as requested, for dessert, I had cheese including Windsor blue. My wife was raving about her meal as well, she had goats cheese starter, venison which was cooked to perfection and the pistachio, chocolate dessert. Considering this is their standard restaurant, we were very impressed. The Oak Room must be something very special if the Orangery is anything to go on.
Reasonable wine list price and choice wise, the bar stocks some good premium spirits, including my favourite rum, Santa Teresa 1796 and does some excellent classic and modern cocktails.
We’ll definitely return, even if just for a meal.
