“One of the country’s very finest country house hotels, Chewton Glen makes up in luxurious yet understated comfort, facilities, fine food and attention to detail what it lacks in views or a special location, though both the coast and the New Forest are close at hand and the handsome house, bedrooms and expansive spa are beautifully decorated, and the 130 acres of surrounding grounds, with 9-hole golf course, tennis courts and outdoor pool, create a real sense of peace and relaxation. Superb, utterly professional service from many long serving staff; excellent cuisine; sybaritic. A great testament to the successful art of hotelkeeping, having first opened, with just eight bedrooms and two bathrooms, in 1966.”

"The hotel has grown over the decades from eight bedrooms to 58, yet its meticulous, highly polished professionalism, where every element — rooms, food, extensive leisure facilities, spa and grounds — is in harmony, and remains superbly intact."
