“Fantastic Stay”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Excellent stay in this beautiful location. Room and bathroom were spacious and well furnished, views from the room were stunning especially in the early morning sunshine. Food was delicious and service was excellent in the restaurant. Would recommend Chicheley to anyone looking for a luxurious and comfortable stay.

Chicheley Hall, Grade 1 listed mansion
Chicheley Road, Chicheley, MK16 9JJ Chicheley Chicheley Hall seems to have recently changed from being place offering various venues for hire, to a country hotel. We were dying for tea and scones so turned off the main road, following their signs. Glam teas are advertised, but sadly, the staff were in a chaotic state as they were all entirely focused on preparing for an event elsewhere on the property! The house is a beautiful old listed Mansion and has been nicely renovated. If the staff were prepared to serve drop ins (and there were quite a few other people, all anxiously looking around for service), then I see no reason why this place wouldn't do really well. The receptionist has a real off-putting attitude : "no, there are no scones or cakes available", for eg. But, when I walked around, in one of the sitting rooms, I saw a table recently vacated, that still had plates of sandwiches and cakes!? We waited 25 minutes for three teas (no biscuits even). The waiter "helping" us was on his first day on the job, poor thing - totally out of his depth amidst the pandemonium of setting up for that other function..... What a pity really as this place could be really fantastic if it had good management who understood how important service and product are, especially in today's competitive hospitality market. I'd be willing to try it again in a few months, once they've got on their feet as the house itself, and the grounds are well suited to being an upmarket, country "inn". They most certainly should not have advertised "Afternoon Tea at Chicheley Hall" for £16.50 or an upgrade with champagne at £22.50.

Dear Janet

Thank you for your kind feedback. It is a gift and let's my team examin our service and product. As you mentioned we are a new property and have a long way to go.

Our beautiful venue serves afternoon tea but due to use of the house for weddings or events, we only take afternoon teas if they are Pre-Booked. This is clearly stated on our brochure and was what happened in your case. Please accept my apology as reception should have explained that to yourself.

Please do come and visit us again in the near future.

Kind regards

This is a real find, a beautiful hotel in stunning grounds. The hotels main business is that of a conference center followed by a wedding venue. This means that it is not set up as a "normal" 4 star hotel with only a set menu available and slightly dis-functional service. This only adds to the charm and why the place is such a bargain as hotel visitors are viewed as incremental income.

The staff are very helpful and the food was superb. The room still maintain the special feel associated with a grade 1 listed building. The room fittings are basic but functional and modern. The food was of a very high standard.

The rooms are quiet and the grounds on a sunny afternoon are a pleasure.

We will definitely visit again for a pleasant night away.

Room Tip: A room in the hall is worth the premium

The Chicheley Hall is a completely historic, 17th century palace, but completely renewed recently, modern lift to help with luggage and packs, traditional countryside English cusine, absolutely silent and agreeable view.

Room Tip: all top floors rooms are clear and with scenic view of the surrounding green gardens!

I chose the Hall for my mother's funeral tea. They were superb and it was worth every penny I spent. This is a classy venue and the staff were first class.
The Royal Society have a stunning house in glorious grounds and it is managed with the skill you would expect from DeVere.
