This place is fabulous value, we went on " foodie Friday " room, bed and breakfast and dinner for £199 ..great value.
The place is absolutely fabulous , great location, between Marlow & Henley ..I think our room was the basic standard and it was great for an overnight stop, roomy, clean , bath with shower function ..large oversized bed with comfortable mattress .
The staff are superb too.
Downsides are breakfasts..peak times it's a shambles , way too slow for a professional outfit like this ..I don't expect to have 80 minute breakfasts ..too long ..the only negative aspect of the whole trip was a speculative £16 bill for an imaginary mini bar charge , which came n the post a week later ..as we never use the facility ,and say on hotels weekly, we called them , berated them for presuming it was our error, rather than looking at their own reporting systems , and the bill was rightly rescinded with an apology . It kind of highlights the failings in a hotel if they are too quick to charge first and ask questions later ( which I think is illegal anyway ) so that was the only bad mark ..we'd definitely stay again , the place and staff are fine but management maybe want to tighten up a bit on housekeeping bar checks and breakfast efficiency to guarantee automatic top marks in future ..

Arrived after a miserable journey on the M40 to a wonderful warm welcome by both the receptionist and concierge then taken to our room which had a beautiful view of the gardens running down to the Thames - just amazing. The room was excellent with an enormous bed , large flat screen tv , personal welcome letter etc ..................the journey was forgotten !
We had booked a table in the Adam Simmonds restaurant , what a meal ! We had the nine course tasting menu which my wife thought would be too much , it wasn't .
Each course was just astounding , small portions ( thank goodness ! ) of sublime flavours , each course as it came was our favourite ! The service was impeccable , just a great experience that gave me a huge amount of ' brownie points ' !
Breakfast in the morning was again a delight , very good buffet starters , all you could wish for - followed by a great full English - poached eggs done to perfection
We had a lovely walk in the grounds in the morning which rounded off a fantastic stay - thank you Danesfield !

We went to Danesfield house for my mother in laws 60th birthday, truly beautiful place. We treated her afternoon tea during our stay and it was lovely although the only place I have been not to have been offered a replenishment of sandwiches and scones. Very tasty though never the less. Was a little nervous about going after I booked and came on tripadvisor to read very negative reviews about the service which I can thankfully say was brilliant, especially as it was very busy and there was a wedding on. Had told the person on the phone when i had booked that it was a special birthday to be created with a candle in one of the afternoon tea cakes, not exactly what I had in mind. Had a beautiful walk through the grounds. I would happily return

Beautiful location, close to Marlow, a lovely little town with an eclectic mix of interesting shops and overlooking the Thames meandering off into the distance. This hotel looks very impressive and has the wow factor. We were having a girly weekend away and were well looked after. Cases taken to our rooms and offered complementary tea or coffee with homemade biscuits on arrival which was lovely. We were given rooms next to each other which was nice. The food in the Orangery was very minimalistic, very pretty to look at but not much to eat. Drinks in the bar were very expensive. The spa messed up my booking and so I never had my nails done but that wasn't a problem. Pool was nice but cold and there was a good selection of complementary magazines to read but not enough loungers round the pool for us to sit together. There was a wedding on when we were there and because of the band and lots of wedding guests about it was quite noisy in the lounge when we would have liked to have sat and nattered in the lovely lounge. Breakfast was OK but I have had much nicer breakfasts in lesser hotels. I don't know why but the high cost of drinks and the food and the whole noise thing really spoiled it for me which was a real shame.

Room Tip: Try and get a room overlooking the back of the hotel, the gardens and the Thames

If you like country house hotels Danesfield should be on your list.
Had a great weekend break. Good choice of relaxed and formal dining. Overall everything in good share, just a bit of touch up to make it perfect.
Tops in value for money.

And what a shame they don`t allow children entering the pool. Staff were helpful and the Orangery restaurant food was very good. Maybe they are targeting older couples who want to get away from children, but I think there is always room for "little ones" in a place like this.

The impressive edifice, the magnificent gardens with the super view over the Thames and the helpful staff were the first things to promise a great stay, but unfortunately our dark room with tiny windows, the lack of a safe, the provision of a fan on a very warm day because there was no airco, the broken glass strewn on the grass in a number of places in the gardens, the 2012! edition of the Xmas booklet in the room, the failure to turn down the beds and to replace used cups, the inefficient flush in the bathroom, and the lack of an envelope in which one was supposed put the comments form rather detracted from the whole experience.
