We are pleased to announce that after a 16 month restoration programme of public spaces, suites and bedrooms Cliveden is now fully restored to its former glory and achieved AA Hotel of the Year 2015/16.

Cliveden is unique. One of the world's finest luxury hotels, this grand stately home is set in the heart of the Berkshire countryside, surrounded by 376 acres of magnificent formal gardens and parkland. The chalk cliffs that give the estate its name provide visitors panoramic views over the beautiful Berkshire countryside and an idyllic bend in the River Thames. It is arguably the finest of luxury hotels near London and Heathrow Airport. From the moment you are ushered into the beautiful Great Hall with its grand fireplace, oak panelling and priceless artworks, our aim is to ensure you feel like a treasured, personal guest. You'll be treated to the very highest standards of quality, with excellence in every detail. Where else can you be surrounded by such extraordinary extravagance and remarkable refinement, but at the same time feel so welcomed and at ease?

ACCOMMODATION
An invitation to stay at Cliveden was seldom refused in Lady Astor's day - not least because the bedrooms were so luxuriously appointed and the staff so attentive. The standards she set over 100 years ago are still rigorously maintained today. You can be certain of a beautifully restored room filled with exquisite furnishings and priceless antiques. Luxury accommodation in or near London does not come any better than this. Each room is named after a prominent guest or figure from Cliveden's past and furnished accordingly. It's an experience so unforgettable that our many guests, who return time and again, comment on the friendliness and professionalism of our staff.

FINE DINING
Cliveden has a long tradition of fine food and warm hospitality. George Bernard Shaw enjoyed many a fine meal here as a guest of Lord and Lady Astor and would be equally enamoured by the first class cuisine offered at Cliveden today. At Cliveden the cuisine, the wine, the service and the ambience all amaze in equal measure. No matter which restaurant you choose you will find courteous and attentive service, excellent food and palate-tingling wines, delivered in the most beautiful surroundings.

Head Chef André Garrett joined Cliveden from Park Lane to put Cliveden firmly back on the gastronomic map. Stunning dishes like Cocotte of native Dorset lobster and Fillet of Cumbrian longhorn beef appear alongside re-invented classics like Dover sole Veronique and venison "Grand-Veneur". Inspired by the culinary classics, André Garrett has passionately reworked long-overlooked dishes and carefully crafted some new signatures. Each one is meticulously conceived, fastidiously prepared then cooked with modernity and finished with André Garrett's defining lightness of touch. Somerset born André Garrett places huge emphasis on the provenance of ingredients, so naturally the three course A la Carte and eight course Tasting menus will be unashamedly governed by English ingredients and guided by our seasons.

Or visit the Astor Grill, located in the charming old stable block, which once housed Lord Astor’s most prized fillies. Adopting an equestrian theme in its décor, The Astor Grill is full of character offering a simple and informal approach to dining at Cliveden.

The all-day menu is overseen by Executive Chef André Garrett and it focusses on a mixture of classic American and British dishes, many reminiscent of Cliveden’s diverse owners and residents. The name – The Astor Grill – recalls the Astor family, who owned the house from the early 1900s. William Waldorf Astor, America’s richest citizen, then gave the house to his son and daughter in-law, Nancy Astor, in 1906, and Cliveden became a vibrant social hub for guests as diverse as Charlie Chaplin, George Bernard Shaw and Winston Churchill.

The Astor Grill today is a cosmopolitan venue which is steeped in history, its romantic setting offers all the style and legendary hospitality that Cliveden is famous for, and it is the perfect place to escape and enjoy a late brunch, early lunch, or a relaxed supper.

PAVILION SPA

The Cliveden Spa is now open.  Hidden behind the brick walls of the garden and enveloped by tumbling scented roses and lavender, you will discover a tranquil oasis, offering a real sense of wellbeing and relaxation. A place to escape, renew and refresh.

Guests have included every British monarch since George I as well as Charlie Chaplin, Winston Churchill, Harold Macmillan, President Roosevelt, George Bernard Shaw, John Profumo and Christine Keeler, and many other well-known names from the past and present. Cliveden is, at heart, a charming country house hotel where you can come away to escape, relax and be indulged at every opportunity.

 We look forward to welcoming you to the house.
