I was locked out of this hotel on returning after dinner out. I rang and emailed but no reply. Booking,com tried to contact the hotel with no luck. At ten pm and with no luggage I then had to book and drive to another hotel. Next day I had to then drive back to Claridge house to collect my luggage....

Usually we have an overnight member of staff to provide assistance to our guests, as well as a duty manager who is not always on site.

We booked the new Massage Retreat - a lovely restful midweek break, with some Tai Chi and Healing thrown in for good measure. Most of the house has been recently refurbished and the rooms are very nice - there is still a bit of work to do, so bear with them! The staff are so kind, and the food (all...

I have just returned from a weekend retreat at Claridge House feeling so refreshed. I was welcomed by very friendly staff. My ensuite room was beautifully light, spotlessly clean, warm and my bed was very comfortable. I loved the fact that there was no television and it was so quiet. The ambience of the house was so tranquil and I...

I spent four days at Claridge House on a personal retreat, and couldn't have wished for more. The house and my en-suite room were spotlessly clean. Staff were always on hand to help and advise on things to do, including local walks through the woods and fields. The food (vegetarian) was all freshly cooked, plentiful and delicious, especially the desserts!...

The house has a wonderful peacefulness that was perfect for our get-away retreat this weekend. Staff are wonderful, friendly and always happy to help in any way. The whole place is exceptionally clean. The bedrooms are spacious and guests have use of two lounges (one with music, board games, puzzles etc) and a small library. A great pity they don't...

First visit for over 2 years, and since a very welcome refurbishment. I appreciate the comments of customers via booking websites who felt they were misled but, if you can see beyond this, Claridge House is quite a special place. I am not a vegetarian but more than happy to eat vegetarian food and I felt that the extensive continental...

Come here for a break away from noise, hustle, deadlines etc. This is a Quaker guest house (not that you'd notice the Quaker influence unless you were looking) ideal for a retreat or quiet break.
