Fodor's Review

If you've ever wondered what it would feel like to be an Edwardian grandee, then sweep up the drive to this stately home, one of Britain's grandest hotels. Cliveden's opulent interior includes John Singer Sargent's portrait of Nancy Astor, suits of armor, tapestries, and plenty of wood paneling. The plush traditional bedrooms, complete with fireplaces, molded ceilings, and antiques are named after prominent guests, from Charlie Chaplin to Henry James to William Gladstone. You can eat contemporary French cuisine in the stately André Garrett at Cliveden restaurant beneath the stunning chandeliers, or more informally at the Club Room, and take a dip in the beautifully secluded outdoor heated pool. If your pocket doesn't rise to a night here, you can drop in for a luxurious afternoon tea (£29.50).

Great great hotel... but....

The place was very nearly just perfect. The hotel is obviously sublime. And obviously expensive. The room we had was exceptional, with incredible paintings sculpture and fireplace. The grounds are awesome. The staff just fabulous. My one only gripe. The food. Oh dear. Our evening meal in the main dining room was terrible. Just awful. Especially considering the price. The chef was useless. Stay in the hotel. It really is marvellous. But eat out. Or

chop your tongue off.
