Good to know
Danesfield is big and grand – it's not for those seeking a small and intimate hotel experience.
86 rooms and suites
Rooms are decorated in classic English style, with many boasting original period features. Expect crisp Egyptian cotton bedlinen, a widescreen TV with over 70 channels (42 inch screen and iPod docks in river facing rooms), complimentary mineral water, and minibar. Bathrooms come with robes and slippers and L’Occitane bath products.
For river views (essential for the full Danesfield experience), opt for an Executive Room or Suite at the rear – ideally on an upper floor.
Eat & Drink
Look forward to haute cuisine dining here – the hotel's Michelin starred restaurant, The Oak Room, at Danesfield House is rated as one of Britain’s top dining spots.
There's also relaxed dining in the brasserie-style Orangery, overlooking the gardens and the river beyond. Delicious afternoon teas are served on the terrace (a stunning spot in fine weather) or in the historic Great Hall. You can enjoy breakfast or drinks on the terrace in warm weather.
Breakfast is served until 10am.
Available 24 hours.
See & Do
There’s plenty to do around here, and no better place to start than nearby Henley on Thames, home of the famous Regatta. Hire a boat for the morning to potter along the river (Danesfield’s kitchen brigade will provide the picnic) or visit the town’s fascinating River and Rowing Museum.
Riverside Marlow and Windsor are close by, together with the delights of rural Buckinghamshire. Other must-see attractions include the Roald Dahl museum at Great Missenden, Oxford’s famous colleges and the grand stately homes of Hughenden Manor and Grey's Court.
The hotel’s Aromatherapy Associates Spa – offering similar treatments to the spas in Necker Island and The Savoy – is the place to relax and revitalize. Features include an ozone-cleansed swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room and high-tech gym.
Rub shoulders with the royals at the biggest society racing week of the year – Royal Ascot.
Late June – early July
Grab your straw boater and a picnic (Danesfield's kitchen team will be happy to oblige) and head for Henley Royal Regatta.
Some of the biggest names in music and jazz top the bill at the Henley Festival.
