Good Hotel Guide Review

There’s a ‘great atmosphere’ at this privately owned country house spa hotel (Relais & Châteaux), unstintingly luxurious yet completely family friendly. Fifty years strong – with a commemorative book to prove it – it continues to innovate, The  Kitchen (a purpose-built cookery school and restaurant complex opened in March  2017). ‘The attention to detail is excellent,’ enthuses a reader in 2016. If the sky’s the limit, book a tree-house suite, built on stilts in a secluded forest setting – each suite has floor-to-ceiling windows, a wood-burning stove, a whirlpool tub, a kitchenette, and a breakfast hamper delivered to the door. In the main house, even the cheapest rooms are large, traditionally and lavishly furnished, ‘absolutely pristine, relaxing and very comfy’, says a guest, for whom the whole experience was ‘unreal’. Come hungry: ‘delicious’, sophisticated meals are served in the conservatory dining rooms, perhaps Wiltshire venison saddle, parsley root, sloe gin; line-caught sea bass, mussels, monk’s beard. The estate is on the edge of the New Forest, a stroll from the sea – make your way through ‘beautiful’ grounds for ‘lovely’ walks along the beach. (Aminah Gianfrancesco, Sarah Heineman)

Guest comments

'We had a wonderful golden wedding celebration. They treated us very well. The treehouses are particularly special. The concept of having the upstairs room (attic) for the children was lovely. The continental breakfast was luxurious . At dinner the staff knew exactly what was ordered and it was carried out efficiently and with grace. It’s a really special hotel, wonderful for a momentous occasion. We would definitely go back when we’ve saved up. ' - Jackie and Hugh Tunstall-Pedoe - July, 2017
'An excellent experience. The staff were friendly and attentive, the hotel and grounds impressive, and the food, wine and service was superb. The spa facilities were good and spacious with a wide variety of treatments, from again welcoming and attentive staff. Generally you get in life what you pay for, pay the little extra and indulge yourself at the Chewton Glen; highly recommended! ' - Chris Turner - December, 2016

The rooms were pristine, relaxing and very comfy. The food was wonderful, the staff were always willing to help. Great atmosphere. ' - Sarah Heineman Heineman - March, 2016
