Stayed here for a relaxing pre-birth/spa weekend with my wife. Booked a junior suite, which was expensive but just about delivered for the price. Not huge/ostentatious but very comfortable and warm, with outside patio (good for summer, not really a draw during the coldest winter in memory).
Staff are very welcoming and, whilst some risk "formality", cannot do enough for you. Swimming and hydrotherapy pools are fantastic, gym is a basic fitness room but does the job unless you are in pre-Olympic training. Food and drink is, as one sadly comes to expect in these places, very expensive....although I have never had a £15 sandwich that lives up to its billing, it managed to just avoid annoying me given the surroundings and the fact that this place was not designed to be a motorway stopover.
Close to the sea for a bracing walk and my wife said the spa treatments were good - they have "mother to be"; treatments. Admittedly, I don't know kuch about this apsect of our stay as I was in my room with a beer or two watching England hammer Australia at Twickenham, so all in all a great weekend.
If you want an expensive, relaxing and luxurious weekend, this place does what it says on the tin.

It was good to read that this reviewer enjoyed a pre-birth spa weekend with his wife and found Chewton Glen to be both comfortable and warm.

We encourage the staff to be themselves at all times and the intention is for them to be hospitable rather than subservient. We endeavour to avoid being too formal at all costs however it is important that we remain professional at all times. All of our food and drink prices include a 10% service charge which sometimes makes us look more expensive than we actually are and as I am sure this reviewer experienced, none of the staff would accept any further gratuities.
We look forward to welcoming these guests back as a family hopefully in the not too distant future.
