“Saturday Night Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

Arrived at 4pm after visit to Claydon ( National Trust ).Hartwell is a beautiful Classic House also owned by the Trust but superbly run by Historic Hotels. Every aspect of our stay was excellent including the use of the Spa with Pool . A stroll in the Parkland by the Lake before Breakfast was rewarded by the sight of four herons closeby.David H.

It was my birthday last week and my wife took me for a surprise lunch to Hartwell House. We were ushered in and as it was a sunny day, we had drinks on the terrace, with beautiful views of the landscaped grounds, a great start to what was to be.... a great lunch! Sunday lunch is a British institution that can be brilliant or just plain bland. I can highly recommend Hartwell House for a superb 3 course lunch soup was unusual. I have never heard of pickled mushrooms but they were great with the celeriac soup. Lovely Roast Pork and Guinea Fowl the highlight here were the yorkshire puddings the best ever. I think they may have used duck fat, awesome flavour. We finished with a souffle which was heavenly. Prices were very reasonable we pushed the boat out on booze so the bill was quite steep! Great service too and my compliments to the kitchen because they were really busy with a large party and a full dining room and each dish was perfect and very well presented. As a footnote and having eaten here a few times over the years why no Michelin Star? Ps we did not use the hotel as we only live 5 miles away.

We had an amazing day at this wonderful hotel. The staff were very attentative and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room was wonderful - Octagon. The grounds were wonderful where we had some great photos taken by our Professional photography. The food was out of this world and what you would expect from this establishment. All our guests could not thank us enough for what a wonderful day they had spent with us at Hartwell House. Truly a wonderful lunch and day had by all. Thank you to all the staff who made my husbands birthday lunch so perfect and a day to remember for mny years to come.
I would highly reccomend this Hotel!

Hartwell House is a beautiful 18 C stately home with excellent bedrooms in a serene parkland setting. The drawing rooms and restaurant are quite lovely in terms of décor and vistas. The main restaurant itself has an extremely good menu and it is well priced-especially at lunch time. Service is friendly and professional without being remotely aloof and the overall Hartwell is experience is highly recommended..

we celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary here in July 2013 spending 2 days in total. There is much to do here walking the wonderful grounds as well as visiting nearby National trust properties and of course the spa. The staff and facilities were excellent in every respect and no different from our annual New Years eve celebration. If you want somewhere to go for a special occasion you can do no better.

After spending another beautiful day with my partner having an Indulgance day at the Hartwell Spa for my birthday, I felt for the first time the need to share the experience. I go here every Birthday & Christmas & have never been disappointed. The facilities are welcoming & relaxing. I find the menu in the spa cafe suits all tastes fancy or not & you can even get a cheeky glass of wine. I find it so difficult choosing a treatment as they are all fabulous & my biggest praise must go to the therapist Nadine who as well as having magic hands always remembers me & asks how my family are for the personal touch. Best of all for such luxurious surroundings it does not break the bank xx
