Bought this as a Christmas gift for my girl friend, the house is incredible and idyllic grounds.

Would highly recommend the Astor grill for lunch and ask someone for a tour of the house as this was a real gem!

Food was beautiful and staff were attentive and very friendly albeit what appeared to be organised chaos with little organisation. Having said this don’t let this deter you from staying!

We decided to treat ourselves to a day-spa package including massage, pedicure, facial etc. Wonderful. There are two swimming pools (inside and outdoors) plus a sauna and steam room and three hot tubs. A lovely way to relax and unwind.

Beautiful location, hotel, langue area and the restaurant itself. Andre Garret's menu has a great selection and wine list however vast thankfully includes some nice English selection. The hotel was obviously very busy during Christmas period but you wouldn't know that as service was perfect, personal, friendly, genuine. Especially the sommelier.
it's a perfect place for a special occasion or a treat. I highly recommend it.

I surprised my wife with a weekend stay at Cliveden for her birthday. I was worried that we coincided with one of the year's royal weddings, but this needn't have bothered us. The service from all hotel staff was impeccable, of the level I have only seen matched at Claridge's.
We chose a room with hot tub, with views across the infamous swimming pool. A bottle of Champagne on ice awaited and despite the inclement weather, the tub was most welcome. Dinner at the Andre Garrett was excellent, Michelin Star quality. The Astor Grill in the stable block had a more relaxed family atmosphere.
Champagne afternoon tea was also very good but extremely busy. All restaurants had no problem catering for a gluten free diet, but I would recommend giving advance notice.
Highlights of our stay were a trip on Cliveden's 'Suzy Ann' boat along the Thames, with flowing champagne and a visit to the spa. The spa welcomed you like a private house guest & we were free to stay all day after checking out of our room on the last day.
The standard house champagne at Cliveden is Tattinger, which says it all.
I think we'll make this an annual event.
