Inspirations

Hartwell House Hotel, Restaurant & Spa is part of the following Inspirations:

10 Hotels for The Best Martinis This Christmas by Adrian Mourby

"The bar at Hartwell House was originally a dining room in the Jacobean wing of this National Trust property, built in 1620. Its panelling and carved oak fireplace give a good idea of how warm and cozy the room must have felt in the seventeenth century. There are a series of paintings of Hartwell House circa 1720 on the walls. These are recent copies of Balthazar Nebo originals that were painted in Italy. Immediately beneath them a long bar displays the hotel’s huge collection of spirits, including eight gins – Hendricks, Sipsmith, Bombay Sapphire, Tanqueray, Plymouth, two Gordons and the Botanist, a Scots gin from Islay that infuses 22 botanicals. The hotel’s classic martini is usually made from Tanqueray and the drinks menu reminds us – quite rightly – that a dry martini should be stirred not shaken. Enough said. If you’re staying or dining at Hartwell House do check out the remarkable Jacobean staircase with its carved balusters. Many of the figures are historical or mythological, but in the twentieth century Winston Churchill and G.K. Chesterton were added. After a cocktail or two see how long it takes you to find them."

Top UK hotels to enjoy the Autumn Sun by Adrian Mourby

"Hartwell House has a remarkable history. Over the last thousand years it’s been home to - amongst many others - William the Conqueror’s illegitimate son; Wicked King John, Louis XVIII (the exiled French king who was restored after Waterloo), and Gustavus IV of Sweden, another exiled king. It’s not surprising then that the house has wonderful grounds for lapping up the autumn sunshine, a total of 90 acres laid out by Capability Brown in his familiar style of smooth undulating grass, scattered trees and serpentine lakes. This parkland dates from the 1750s when the then owner, Sir William Lee, commissioned that equestrian statue of George III’s son, Frederick Prince of Wales, which stands in the centre of a long line of trees leading up the house. The views north, east and south from Hartwell have that idyllic English sense of the pastoral and are enhanced by a charming collection of eighteenth-century pavilions, temples and towers."

Relaxing autumn and winter breaks near London by Jessica Baldwin

"Standing amidst ninety acres of landscaped parkland and just an hour from central London, Hartwell House is an idyllic break for stressed Londoners. Once frequented by Louis XVIII, the exiled King of France, the mansion’s Grade I listed building is crammed with old world charm with Rococo ceilings, fine art at every turn and enchanting antiques galore. Even its grounds are a treasure trove, scattered with ornate statues it has a Gothic chapel, 18th century follies and a picturesque lake to discover. But fear not itchy footed Londoners, it is also a great base for exploring the university town of Oxford and the beautiful Cotswold countryside."

Ten Hotel Breaks for Stressed Parents by Jessica Baldwin

"Once frequented by Louis XVIII, the exiled King of France, Hartwell House’s Grade I listed building is crammed with old world charm, with Rococo ceilings, traditional paintings and antiques galore. Perfectly located for exploring the beautiful Cotswolds and the Chiltern Hills it is a hiker’s dream with endless country walks just a stone throw away. Its Jacobean and Georgian façade is surrounded by 90 acres of manicured gardens and parkland which is open to hotel guests."

The Top Ten Resplendent Wedding Venues by Liz Coggins

"Hartwell House is a magnificent and luxurious stately home. Its unique staircase, ornate plasterwork ceilings, décor and marble fireplaces make it the dream venue for couples to hold their wedding celebrations In its 90 acres of parkland lies a Gothic chapel, a lake spanned by a stone bridge and 18th century follies and statues making the perfect backdrop for photographs."

Review of Hartwell House Hotel, Restaurant & Spa

Posted on by Charlotte HCustomer stayed Nov 2017

Positives: warm welcome on arrival, lovely staff, beautiful room, peaceful spa, incredible decor, excellent food, pretty grounds (even in the rain). Could not have asked for more. Slept a full eight hours and I cannot remember the last time that happened. Treated like a Queen. I was sad to have to leave, but even just 24 hours there did a lot for my wellbeing. It was superb and I would go back in a heartbeat.

Negatives: none.

Thank you, Hartwell House!

A glorious weekend retreat for a mini break with my sister, luxurious drawing rooms, elegant traditional style, excellent food, spacious room, delightful walks in the grounds, warm weather to relax by the spa. Quiet, relaxing break. Not somewhere I would bring young children.

If ever you have wanted to be treated royally, just for pure fun, Hartwell House is the place to visit. The Staff are attentive and they add so much to the warmth and hospitality! Can't wait to return.


Review of Hartwell House Hotel, Restaurant & Spa

Posted on by Kay ACustomer stayed Sep 2017

Can't rate this hotel highly enough. We didn't hold our reception here but we had about five rooms booked, including a four poster for our wedding night.

We were treated like celebrities; nobody could do enough for us. As well as the facilities being gorgeous and luxurious it was the little touches like the man on the gate knowing that my Dad was the "Father of the Bride" and also the little cards left in my room the night before asking if they could do anything and wishing me luck that really tipped it to being outstanding.

They also let us take pictures there, which was above and beyond as there was no obligation on them at all.

I VERY much hope to stay there for our anniversary. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the special attention and great service.

Driving up to the Hartwell House is like going back in time. You feel like royalty. The house is beautiful ... shades of one of my favourite show "Downton Abbey." Whether you are exploring the Grand Room, the Morning Room, the Drawing Room, the Library, the bar or the dining room ... you are surrounded by elegance and history. We loved quietly strolling the 90 acres of the property, in fact we were there four days and never left. The Spa is a part of the hotel benefits, and it is beautiful. You can lounge in the indoor pool area and totally relax. The restaurant is delicious, and the choices are varied. The main staircase is a piece of art in itself. Highly recommend this elegant resort.

Wonderful service, food and facilities at Hartwell House. A great place for a relaxing break with elegance of spacious and beautiful country house setting. Large room with wonderful views and spacious bath/shower. Dinner, bed and breakfast was a great offer.


Review of Hartwell House Hotel, Restaurant & Spa

Posted on by Martin KCustomer stayed Apr 2017

The hotel is former mansion surrounded by large garden/park. Very traditional, almost luxurious interior, lot of nice lounge rooms... But all perfectly functional. Wifi stronger and faster then in most international hotels. Very different experience compare to international business hotels. Exactly like I would imagine English countryside premium / classy hospitality. Very classy but also fast and efficient hospitality. The dinner / breakfast is true luxury. Starting with interior, dress and behaviour of the staff, serving, meals and vines ... but also the price is rather high-end.

Posted on by Tahs 2Customer stayed Apr 2017

The best bit of this hotel is probably the building itself- the historic setting is pretty unique. All the rooms were great, but one of our party stayed in a royal suite (used to be the bedroom of Queen Marie-Josephine of France!) that was particularly (even ridiculously) luxurious. The staff were really friendly and sorted out any requests straight away, the dinner was delicious and the spa was nice too. Good location for visiting other National Trust properties as well.

After a trip to Bicester Village for shopping we went to Hartwell House. Service excellent, large bedrooms and bathrooms, very comfortable, water and fruit provided in the room. Tried out the gym and pool. Dinner was excellent, once again excellent service from waiting staff and the sommelier, comfortable night's sleep. Breakfast was extensive, plenty of choices hot and cold. A walk round the grounds then headed home.


Review of Hartwell House Hotel, Restaurant & Spa

Posted on by Michelle DCustomer stayed Dec 2016

Seven of us arrived on Christmas Eve. All rooms were lovely and comfortable. The main house is just stunning . We had a courtyard suite as we took the family dog Nero. He loved it as he could head straight out of the back door into the woods for walkies! Christmas Eve was black tie and had Carol singers in the Great Hall. It was magical as was dinner 5 courses with generous amounts of wine included. Christmas Day was also a huge success. The staff genuinely looked like they wanted to be there and were so friendly and welcoming. The food and wine was impressive , no dry turkey and overcooked veg here! Everyone in our party was delighted ( no mean feat with three generations) After a Boxing day walk and a swim in the charming spa we enjoyed Boxing Day lunch which was optional and later dinner again lots of choice and beautifully cooked and presented. The wine list was extensive and well priced for a hotel. We chose a Chablis at £38 and Chateau Musar at £60 the sommelier was professional,good humoured and friendly. After dinner followed a Casino evening with fake Hartwell money. It kept everyone cheerful and entertained. We were all sorry to be leaving on the morning of the 27th and definitely could have stayed until New Year's Day. Thank you SO much to all the team, led in the restaurant by Mark who made us so welcome. Tremendous can't recommend it enough. Fantastic memories for all the family.

We stayed for one night and used the spa.

Charming place to stay with lots of character.

Rooms were comfortable and clean with good amenities.

The food was absolute delicious. Dinner was one of the best meals I've ever had. Breakfast was good too. Service was quick and friendly.

The spa was relaxing, and despite being a Saturday not notable busy which was nice.

A lovely break altogether. We stayed for my dads 60th a surprise. He loved it!


Review of Hartwell House Hotel, Restaurant & Spa

Posted on by Athenais 1Customer stayed Nov 2016

My husband and I stayed two nights at Hartwell House and slept in the room where Marie-Therese, Duchess d'Angouleme (eldest daughter of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVIth) used to sleep... such an experience in itself. But what threw us was the genuine kindness of the staff, and their amazing attention to detail - my husband has a diary allergy, and from the moment they were made aware of this, we never had to mention it again. Each time, we ordered tea, dinner, etc... there was always a diary free option, without having to ask. We had our breakfasts in bed, because we both felt poorly (such a shame!) - nothing was ever missing from the tray, and all the options were there.. white, brown sugar, cold or hot milk, extra hot water, etc...The dinner was genuinely one of the best food I ever had and with my favourite restaurant being The Gavroche, it sets the bar quite high! the service is impeccable and nothing is too much trouble - we decided to have our after dinner mint tea in our bedroom and here they came with the tray straight away. Now, for the hotel itself. It's charged with history so I would definitely recommend it to any History fans (or students). You feel it in every room. It's a relaxing atmosphere and one you could easily get used to...I'd love to have this as my country retreat. We went for a walk, and here again it was beautiful, relaxing, truly out of time.

Now, when you think that the hotel is just an hour from London, it really ticks all the boxes! There is nothing which can disappoint. I highly recommend it.

My wife and I visited Hartwell House in September. We travel to the UK annually, where we try to stay in three different country house hotels. We have been doing this for years and I have read wonderful reviews, but never visited before. We loved everything about this fine home. It has a wonderful history, beautiful property inside and out, wonderful service, delicious food and a great location. We look forward to our return.
