The setting, and the size and comfort of the room and hotel.
The breakfast was well made, and the menu offered a fair choice.
The staff were very accommodating, and very helpful.
Value for Money, and the price for breakfast isn't justified by what you get.
We also experienced serious discomfort when, before we finally left to go home, a young couple behind us, in the lounge, were allowed to sit and talk loudly, and then just left to it when they started getting intimate with each other! This was in the middle of the day, with staff passing back and forth in their duties.
This behaviour should be discouraged, with suggestions for rampant guest, no matter how wealthy, to take their married mistress's to a bedroom! There are certainly enough staff to monitor, and control, inconsiderate visitors and guests, especially with the view that Chewton Glen has an excellent reputation to maintain, and charges a lot of money for a privilege that should allow guests to sit and read in quiet and comfort.
