Place rating: 5 Chalfont Saint Giles, United Kingdom
I was lucky enough to be invited to stay at this exclusive hotel. The designer elements of our room flowed nicely into the original period pieces. The owner of the hotel makes you feel like you are part of the family. Only drawback is the stairs… there is no lift so be warned!

Despite its bijou proportions and shared bathroom with the owners, I cannot recommend this hotel enough. The level of personal service is exceptional, the staff to guest ratio never drops below 1:1 with the exception being when having a late checkout, and being asked to «just shut the door behind you». The fact that this hotel is not advertised, nor is its address publicly available adds to the feeling of exclusive luxury.
