Cliveden

8.0 Very Good (3 reviews)

A by-word for luxury, Cliveden has a reputation for opulence and exceedingly high standards - and deservedly so. Lose yourself, as you become the very special temporary custodian of a bedroom in this beautiful house and all it has to offer. Hidden in the grounds, The Cliveden Spa is a paradise of calm and sumptuous experiences designed to relax and rejuvenate. Decadent treatments and spa rituals are a given, but it’s the sense of history within the spa facilities including the infamous Profumo pool that will stay with you forever.

At a glance

  • Restaurant

    If the restaurant was good enough for George Bernard Shaw, it’s good enough for us… plus there is an underground wine cellar for private dining.

  • Local Attractions

    You can hire a boat to potter along the river, but if you fancy venturing further afield, Cliveden is close to Windsor Castle, Windsor Racecourse, Ascot, Legoland, and Henley.

  • Scenic Location

    Guests can pay a fee to explore the National Trust grounds in the summer, but are given exclusive entry in the low season when they are ordinarily closed.

  • Romantic

    Aside from the general beauty of the location, there is a garden with an outdoor pool – it doesn’t get more romantic than that!

  • Family Friendly

    There is a maze to explore, a children’s play area, and children are also allowed in the pool areas at set hours in the morning and afternoon.

  • Hotel Spa Venue

    The spa is the perfect combination of contemporary facilities and historic style.

Hidden behind the brick walls of the garden, surrounded by tumbling roses and richly scented lavender, the spa at Cliveden is a glamorous oasis inspired by prominent women in the estate’s history. Indoors there is a beautiful pool, seven treatment rooms and a gym, while in the garden you will find steaming hot tubs and the infamous Profumo pool, famed for its association with the Profumo affair in the 1960s. There are also both indoor and outdoor tennis facilities.

A light, white and airy environment with effortless style, the scents throughout the spa are inspired by Anna-Maria, for whom Cliveden was originally built, and the house’s most famous resident, Nancy Astor. These scents reflect the combination of strength, subtlety and femininity of the women who inspired them, in an array of face and body treatments using Cliveden’s own product line as well as Sarah Chapman Skinesis, and OSKIA. The Studio offers manicures and pedicures, and after all of that you can enjoy healthy al fresco dining in The Spa Kitchen.

Having played host to almost every British monarch since George I, as well as being home to a couple of earls, dukes and a prince, Cliveden was taken over by hotel scions – the Astors – in 1906, becoming a favourite destination amongst world leaders and literary legends alike. Of course it doesn’t really need that history to recommend it because the five star mansion surrounded by 376 acres of National Trust grounds is a hospitality fairytale by virtue of its own beauty, facilities and service.

Speaking of literary legends, George Bernard Shaw was an advocate of Cliveden’s epicurean fare, and without surprise: fine dining in the André Garrett at Cliveden with a menu from the celebrated chef who joined the hotel in 2013 from his starring role in some of Mayfair’s most renowned restaurants. The dining salon has a view of the gardens and the Thames, while the seductive den that was once the Duke of Westminster’s personal stables now forms The Club Room, where stools are made of saddles, the table legs are carved into the shape of horse hooves and the afternoon tea comes highly recommended.
