The Langley is an upscale, luxurious and historical Palladian style mansion house hotel located in Iver, Buckinghamshire and it is part of the Marriott group. The mansion and its adjoining Grade II listed ‘Brew House’ (boasting 40+ guest rooms and suites) were recently renovated as part of an extensive 6 years project, and situated on the former manor home of the third Duke of Marlborough, on and 150 acres of formal gardens and parkland.
Most American Express Platinum card holders were recently subjected to a CRAZY offer: spend £400 and get £400 back at selected Marriott hotels, and The Langley was one of them. That’s right.. I stayed for a night at this hotel for almost next to nothing as a standard room at this hotel starts at £485. However, this offer just gets better as I received $100 hotel credit plus free breakfast for 2 as I booked this stay via the Marriott STARS programme.
Check in/the lobby:
Check in was very smooth and grand… in the grandest of ways. Driving up to the hotel and seeing all the greenery, beautiful centrepiece fountain and the impressive mansion just blew my mind away, it was stunning. Once I arrived at the lobby, I was greeted by courteous staff and kindly escorted me to the Brew House which was a small walk from the mansion, where I was staying.
I had a Brew House Deluxe room. The room was extremely spacious with a sitting area, contemporary with a modern intimate feel to it as the rich wooden furniture and landscape art added warmth to the space. The bathroom was beautiful and stylish as each fixture complimented each other (I was so impressed with the sink, just loved the look of it!), and also cosy due to the under floor heating. The hotel was not shy with the amenities either as they provided me with everything from slippers, bathrobe, shaving and dental kit to my very own pot of honey made in house!
I thought the service was great- the staff were attentive and prompt with any requests I had. The staff definitely embodied the historical feel of the hotel as they were very polite, formal and dressed to impress. The guests also had the freedom to explore the formal gardens of the hotel, which was so lovely and quintessentially English!
I dined at the Cedar restaurant in the hotel for both breakfast and dinner. The restaurant showcases the best of British foods, with European influences. Breakfast was great as there was loads to choose from the continental breakfast menu, including hot drinks.
Dinner was a great experience. I had a wonderful host who took the time to explain each dish of interest to me and the sources of the ingredients. The host brought out a plate of fresh sourdough bread with two types of homemade butters made on the premises… it was so good! I had to get a second plate. I just love bread. Anyways, I had the parsnips and nashi pears for starters, lamb chops for main and the pistachio parfait for dessert. I enjoyed every course!
Overall, I would definitely recommend a stay here. The location is not far from London at all so it quite conveniently located. If you ever fancy a stay in a gorgeous majestic hotel by the countryside surrounded by greenery for a weekend, special occasion or just because you want to, you cannot go wrong with The Langley.
