The car park was quite full when we arrived. I was pleased to see the hill down to the hotel had been gritted. You can drop people off at the door. Upon arrival we were ushered through the Great Hall into a lovely lounge overlooking the gardens. We were immediately offered drinks which arrived promptly with nibbles and olives, shortly... More

The sandwiches were lovely and fresh but a little bit uninspiring , the... More

We went to Hartwell House for a celebratory lunch and were really impressed. We were warmly greeted and settled for an aperitif in one of the stunning public rooms, with amazing 18th century ceiling and fireplace, and paintings and glorious furniture to match. Wow! Then we had the Hartwell Experience Lunch - 6 courses, if you count the coffee for... More

We have eaten at Hartwell House on a number of occasions. It is conveniently located for family get-togerhers and we have had pleasant experiences there in the past. We visited just after New Year and enjoyed the same warm welcome, nibbles in one of the wonderful reception rooms and the same wonderful dining room. However, food was not up to... More

Extremely nice bedroom and excellent dinner and breakfast. Checked out of hotel at 10.30am and will be returning for afternoon tea with a friend whose birthday is today. Nice grounds for walking and indoor pool/spa if wished. House decorated for Christmas and nothing too much trouble for staff.

Went to celebrate my partner's birthday. The management provided the list of options that we could choose from. Once we made our choice they were extremely helpful and suggested witch wine to serve. A few weeks before the party they arranged for us to sample the menu that we had chosen. The night of the party the staff were superb... More
