About Us

Cliveden is unique...No one could resist an invitation to Cliveden; From Churchill to Chaplin, Lawrence to Lennon. Fortunes have been made, plots hatched. History changed...

One of the world's finest luxury hotels, Cliveden is undergoing a three year renovation program to restore it to its former glory. This grand stately home is set in the heart of the Berkshire countryside, surrounded by 376 acres of magnificent National Trust managed Grade I listed formal gardens and parkland. Cliveden has wonderful panoramic views over the River Thames and is one of the finest luxury hotels near London and Heathrow Airport.

This tradition of fine hospitality and entertainment continues today. Never out of fashion, Cliveden remains elegantly decadent. Its refined grandeur makes a memorable backdrop, whatever the poison...

Best of the Best

Behind its stately facade, Cliveden House hides a checkered past. Built 350 years ago for the Duke of Buckingham's mistress and backdrop for the scandalous Profumo affair, this sprawling 48-room estate — set upon 376 National Trust-designated acres — has fostered the illustrious and illicit. It cultivates a cultured stay with antique furnishings, period artworks, four-poster beds and fireplaces; the meticulously tended grounds include a maze and the celebrated Parterre. Take a walk through the woodlands or a dip in the pool before dining in style in the André Garrett restaurant or for a more informal experience try the Astor Grill.

Advisor Tip

Take a private Thames River cruise on Cliveden’s 100-year-old riverboat with a picnic lunch; or, join others for champagne at sunset. –Linda Terrill Atlanta, Georgia

Special Treat - Cliveden House

By: Smittyken


Reviewed on: 14 Nov 2016

When British Airway offered discounted fares that required an overnight stay we had no idea what a treat that would be. Melissa Reese found the great fare and knew where to have us spend the night. A little place near Heathrow, with a little bit of history. Cliveden House has several books written about the goings on of the place. This grand stately home is twenty minutes from the airport in the Berkshire countryside, surrounded by 376 acres of magnificent National Trust managed Grade 1 listed formal garden and parkland with views of the Thames that go on forever. They took care of us like we were going to be there forever. The next time we stay it will not be an overnight-er.

It is an excellent "old England" destination hotel. Service, dining, and amenities are all excellent. There were a lot of local visitors and traffic, thus having lunch was basically impossible without advanced reservations.

Words cannot adequately describe Cliveden House. You have to go there to experience it in all its grandeur. Be warned though, you need more than one night at this property!
