Just perfect

We chose Cliveden for the setting of our smaller UK wedding and Kiera and Lydia were the perfect duo in assisting me with my wedding. I decided against getting a planner as I wouldn’t have the same input with my other wedding days, and they were incredible at giving access to a huge number of vendors. They were always available, always had a solution to any query, and to top it off the staff that we had were always on hand throughout the 3 days for the smallest of favours.

We cannot thank Cliveden House enough for our beautiful wedding! It was a dream weekend that we can’t fault. All of the staff were amazing throughout, from helping us prep and finalise everything to the day and any post queries! The warmest most friendly yet professional manner!! And the best food ever!!! Thank you to everyone at Cliveden House

5 stars which deserve 6!

The staff at Cliveden are a credit to the hotel - each and everyone of them. They are all so helpful and genuinely want to please. The food in both restaurants was excellent and all the waiting staff. My two children also enjoyed their stay. We shall see Cliveden again soon. 5 stars which deserve 6!

Many thanks

Everyone was so attentive and I was extremely impressed when the baby bottles came to be warmed in a silver champagne bucket filled with warm water!!! What a laugh we had about the luxury...

And many thanks to you for making the arrangements so painless! If ever my other half asks me to marry fact my friends kept expecting a registrar to pop out at Cliveden at any moment!!

Thank you

I felt compelled to write to you to thank you once again for making our wedding at Cliveden House so special.

The bedroom was delightful, the food in the Terrace Dining Room outstanding, and the Spa as relaxing a place to pass a weekend as I can remember having found.

However, the strongest impressions that will be left with us are of your quite excellent staff, and of the majesty and history of the buildings and the estate.

Wonderful experience at Cliveden

We just wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience we had at Cliveden. The room was stunning with a view that I could stare at for hours, the service was warm, courteous and unobtrusive, the food was delicious, the spa was fun, and all in all we left Cliveden with a heavy heart and wishing that we could move in on a permanent basis.

I would particularly like to thank the whole team at Cliveden. As you know I''ve stayed in literally thousands of hotels thanks to my former jobs and I can honestly say that Cliveden rates in the top category - well, you hardly need me to tell you this as their list of accolades is superlative.

Anyway, before I really start to gush, just once again thanks for the lovely time we had at Cliveden!
