I went here as a special treat for my husband's birthday and it was everything I hoped it would be. We had a pre lunch drink in the old stables and it is full of character and charm. A must visit! The lunch itself was worth every penny. We chose the market menu which lived up to expectations. It had... More

I have stayed here a number of times and find cliveden stands high above all others for its grace and experience. A lot will find it tired and old and want power shower bathrooms, air conditioned bedrooms and matching room furniture but this is a country home on the grandest level. The staff and quality at every level is charming... More

Just great to be able to combine a very serious business meeting and a stay in such a beautiful environment. Service is just "tip top" and the dinner in the French dining room deserves a special mention - not to forget the drinks on the terrasse at the time of sunset.

"Tip Top" is a lovely way to write about our service service, thank you for your kind words.
