Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Was so lucky to be playing golf at Wentworth Wednesday with a friend or mine and both of us living in Essex, thought we'd go down the night before in order to avoid the early morning commute on the M25. Browsing accommodation in the area took me to Highclere and since it was for 1 night only , my research was limited and I just went by previous reviews before booking. A very good decision it turned out to be. Due to work, we were only able to get there around 11pm. Having notified the hotel of this already, Phillip was there and waiting and gave a warm welcome.
The room (twin) was made up of 1 double bed + a made up sofabed. The room was very clean and had tea/coffee making facilities. Lovely decorated and clean bathroom.
We did not have breakfast at the hotel as that was laid out for us at the golf club.
All in all, a perfect hotel for a short stay and we will be sure to return when we next get to play in the area. Many thanks Phillip!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 208 and had no road noise, or any other noise for that matter, what so ever!

Hello Glen L. Thanks for staying with us; I hope you played well. I'm glad you liked room 8 for it's size and versatility (large double or twin or family due to the sofa bed). As you say, we don't mind waiting up for late arrivals when we can, and your keeping in touch about your arrival time really helps with planning this. Come back soon.

Thank you for the card and Champaign in our room making our anniversary a very special, pleasant and memorable weekend for us and all of our family. We were all very impressed and pleased with your clean and superbly finished hotel and the friendly helpful staff.
Also the village is within easy walking distance and Sandy and Philip were most helpful in advising and booking our restaurant and taxi requirements in advance.
We are hoping to be able to return next year and would not hesitate to recommend this Hotel.

Hello Brian S. Thank you for sharing your Golden Wedding Anniversary with us. It's always such a joy to play even a small part in such a wonderful day as one's 50th wedding anniversary. What an encouragement to those of us not long into the adventure of marriage; and an inspiration to your family and friends. Hopefully we'll see you again at your Diamond Anniversary. Thank you for your kind words. Regards, Phillip Curtis 07707022835

Thanks for making our wedding anniversary that much more special, your hotel was superb in everyway, nothing was to much trouble.
The room was very nice and we enjoyed a great nights rest, as hosts you could not have done more.
We will certainly look forward to visiting you again.
I would recommend this hotel to our friends

Spend a very pleasant one night stay here as we were visiting area for Ascot Races. Despite website saying room would be ready at 3 pm we checked in just before midday which allowed to get dressed for races and was immediately impressed with room. Perhaps slightly small for more than a one nighter, it was immaculately clean and well presented with an extremely comfortable bed, flat screen tv, small table and chair and a built in wardrobe. Very welcoming to find tea and coffee making facilities in our room which just lately we have found some hotels do not have so that was great after a long drive.
The en suite was very modern and clean with a nice big shower.
Great night sleep and even with window open it was quiet. Off street parking and a great breakfast all made it a great place to stay. Only about 3 miles from race course. Highly Recommended

Very good hotel! Excellent environment and delicious breakfast. Quiet night and room. Good for a different weekend with some things to do near or for a business travel. Near there are also other services available. I recommend.

Just arrived home after a wonderful trip to ascot races where we stayed in The Highclere.
The village where it is located is lovely. Some nice little shops and cafes all within easy reach.
The hotel itself is well presented and the staff very helpful. My husband forgot his cuff links and the owner very kindled leant him a pair. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. We had a first floor front elevation double superior room and the bay window to the bed area was lovely. Breakfast was good and didn't want for anything, maybe a little bacon, but what was offered was sufficient and very good quality. The staff were very friendly and very helpful.
Overall a fantastic place.
We will definately use again and bring our little one as they have family rooms too. Ideal base for Lego Land, Windsor Castle and Thorpe Park to name just a few.
Fab.

We stayed here to take our son to Legoland. The hotel staff were really pleasant and helpful and went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The lady even gave our son a bottle of milk to help him sleep, and they let us eat in their breakfast room late at night as we arrived later than planned (which they were totally fine about). It is the only hotel I have stayed at where they actually take your bags to your room and show you where everything is, even down to where the light switches were. The rooms were clean, bright and more comfortable than most hotels are. Really quiet area. Just a generally pleasant stay. Only 12 miles from Legoland too so very handy!
