Review

When this series was filmed in 2018, the staff at Cliveden House were in the middle of a busy summer season. In a bid to boost the luxury Berkshire hotel’s social-media standing, business development manager James had invited two lifestyle bloggers and their pampered pooch to stay, while wedding co-ordinator Lydia was fretting over an extravagant two-day wedding reception – and no wonder, given it cost around £150,000.

This two-part compilation is a deliciously enjoyable glimpse of how the other half lives, although you may raise your eyebrows when one guest complains about the nibbles served with their champagne.
