This is my third stay at Danesfield House. It is located about 20 minutes from Heathrow and offers a lovely country environment with close accessibility to Marlow - A quaint English village.
We stayed in a junior suite, which was lovely. Consider, however, that this is an old property. It offers old English charm. The great room, library and pool are gorgeous. Our hotel service was excellent. They accommodated every request, provided great recommendations, and were always helpful. I was very thankful for the attention they provided us.
The hotel restaurant is good, but not excellent, and doesnt support the high cost. The hotel service was very slow. If you really want to experience a lovely lunch/dinner, ensure you book reservations and the Hand and Flower in Marlow. It is a Michelin starred surprise. Absolutely delicious....but book reservations ar in advance unless you want to take a chance with the four seats at the bar that may be available.
I am most disappointed by the disrepair of the grounds. Danesfield House sits on acres of gorgeous countryside with many ponds, man-made streams, sitting areas. However, most of the streams have dried up and are not working, the sitting areas are filled with broken furniture, the garden needs to be tended to removing some serious weeds. What used to be a gorgeous walk is now a bit depressing knowing its previous grandeur. I was left with the impression that Danesfield House didnt have enough funding to properly take care of the grounds.
Please, Danesfield House, address the grounds as they used to be so beautiful and provided a great atmosphere for long walks and relaxation.
Due to the restaurant customer service and grounds disrepair, I would not be willing to pay what can be very high room rates. If Danesfield House is going to allow their property to suffer, they cannot expect visitors to pay such high rates. I loved this property a couple of years ago at my first stay. Please bring it back to its glory days!
