Celebrated a friend's 70th with afternoon tea. My husband and I had experienced this treat at Cliveden previously and knew our friend would be impressed. The drive to the house sets the scene and anyone would be hard pressed to be disappointed with their arrival. We were greeted well by the gentleman who seemed to be in charge and he...

I ordered steamed fish for my son- and it was served with a WORM!!!!!!!!!!! It shouldn't happen anywhere, especially not in a 5 star hotel (paid 900£ a night!!!!!!!). Initially they said it wasn't a worm, but then admitted it was. They took lunch off the bill- not like we could eat after that, and apologised.

Cliveden House Hotel is one of these places where you just feel "blown away" from the moment you enter the drive up to the house. The place has even though being a 5*hotel a relaxed and laybacked atmosphere. Staff is welcoming, attentive, discrete, polite and have a good sense of humor! Rooms are stunning, freshly refurbished, cuisine mindblowing! Let's not...

I first stayed at Cliveden in Jan. 2016 (see prior review). In the midst of a massive renovation, the Clutton and Garden wings were closed. The pool and spa were also closed due to a fire. For my second stay in Jan. 2017, the room wings are complete, as is the new Astor Grill and some meeting rooms. The pool...

Took my mum for her birthday and found the experience practically perfect in every way. My mum has travelled extensively and she was delighted with the service we received. The house and surroundings are just stunning and it really feels like Nancy Astor might come through the door any second. We even had our room upgraded. A very special trip

Dear AlinLondon2014 Thank you for your kind review. Despite the recent refurbishment of Cliveden I am sure the Nancy Astor would recognize the place and love it just as much as your mum! I look forward to meeting on your next visit. Best wishes Kevin Brooke General Manger

Booked as a surprise for myself and what a treat. From the moment you drive up to the house to when you leave you feel special.

Unbelievable setting. Fantastic you can bring your dogs. The walls are beautiful but the hotel is beyond anywhere I've been! I've stayed in 4 different rooms each as spectacular as the next. Food and cocktails on on a par with anywhere in the world.
