Set in long, beautiful National Trust gardens, this historic Italianate mansion combines exquisite Edwardian elegance with modern luxury, fine cuisine and faultless hospitality. Beautiful property with extensive trails, interesting history, great birding, fabulous dining, and relaxed friendly staff. The holiday decorations made the visit extra special!
Located in Maidenhead, THE STUDIO MAIDENHEAD RIVERSIDE features accommodations with a patio and free WiFi. Set 1.2 mi from Maidenhead Library, the property offers free bikes and free private parking. We found the accommodation was both comfortable and spacious. The bed was very comfortable and everything was extremely clean. Add in the secure parking and great location and we thoroughly recommend The Studio for a lovely stay.
Was a x1 night 80th birthday treat for my auntie Rosemary Quirk (nee knapp) who worked in service there in 1953-1957 with my late mother (her twin) Muriel Jones (nee knapp), for lady Astor, she has early dementia but remembered so much about Cliveden and the servants that I just had to take her there. Staff was so very lovely to her. Pedros hospitality was exceptional. They said she was special as she was part of the history there and gave us a tour. My Auntie was very touched and said it was like a dream come true. Thank you all so very much.
Taplow is ideally located for the traveller who wishes to enjoy both rural and urban delights. There is a frequent train service to London, Reading, Windsor and Eton for city jaunts. Alternatively, there are the Thames and the Chilterns for river trips and hill walking, although the latter are only easily accessible by a 30 minute car journey. National Trust property Clivedon, Lady Astor's family home and site of the notorious Profumo Affair, is located in Taplow and is open every day of the year for woodland and riverside walks. Nearby, the Burnham Beeches provide plenty of walks among ancient Beech woodland. The Eton-Dorney rowing lake, venue for the 2012 Olympics, is open to all and offers walks and cycle ways joining the adjacent Thames and Jubilee rivers, and leading to Maidenhead, Eton and Windsor. The wetlands around the Jubilee encourage a wealth of flora and interesting bird life for the naturalist. Restaurants and Pubs are many and varied in the area, catering for all tastes. My favourite is The Blackwood Arms tucked away in Beech woodland. There is a cinema in adjacent Maidenhead and a theatre in Windsor. The Windsor Festival takes place in the latter third of the year and provides an extremely interesting and varied diet of music. Windsor Castle and Windsor Great park are well worth a visit, as is Eton College. I should probably avoid Slough as a holiday maker, but it has its own merits when it comes to providing work for the local community! Cycling around the area is easy along various cycle routes, but I suggest most visitors have a car if they really want to explore the countryside.
We had such a great trip to Cliveden Hotel. Everything was perfect starting from our room to service. Also I would like to mention our waiter João, who was serving us during our pre drinking in the evening in the bar and afternoon tea. He was very professional and helpful. He gave us brief history of the place and 4 pages booklet. Will definitely come back!
You must visit the Windsor Castle and do not forget to check out the young gentleman getting out the school wearing their signature school suits at Ethon Collage. The small village Bray is very good with its many restaurants. If you go in Spring or Summer and cruise in Thames should also be a great ionopt...
