We recently spent a wonderfully relaxing 24 hours at Chewton Glen and came away feeling as though we had been away for days. Our room was beautiful and the bed and pillows really comfortable. The bathroom was in a class of its own with one of the best showers we've ever used.
The food and service in the restaurant was up to the standard that you would expect in a top class hotel- with the exception of the wine which was over priced and not as good as the price would have suggested.Service at breakfast was a little slow but perhaps that was only a problem because we had an appointment to keep.
It is worth visiting the hotel for the spa alone and we made full use of the facilities. Lunch in the spa is particularly tempting and looks healthy- although not if you are too tempted!
We have been regular visitors at the hotel for about 20 years and have seen good times and bad times. We have been disappointed on some occasions but would say that the quality of the food and accommodation is now in keeping with a hotel of this calibre. Another time we would choose a less expensive wine and would run less risk of disappointment!
I find it very difficult to understand the complaints which other reviewers have made about the hotel, especially regarding the staff who we have always found to be friendly and helpful. Perhaps we are just lucky but very rarely do we have a problem with hotel staff- if we are friendly then so are they.
The hotel is expensive, but if you want to feel special this is the place to go.
