lights were on but nobody was at home.

Last night I took my sister-in-law and 7 friends for a twilight spa and two course dinner in the brassiere restaurant for her 30th birthday. The spa was lovely although it took some time filling in consultation forms that were more relevant if you were having a treatment which none of us were. When... read more

What I enjoyed most about this was the ability to chose 3 small dishes (either main or dessert) They were larger than I expected even though described as small plates. The meal was throughly delightful and the surroundings delightful

We caught an hour in this part of the Hall while on our stay. It is a very nice atmosphere and setting for a break away from the usual routine. It fits perfectly with the rest of the hotel atmosphere and decor. The staff are very good and well trained. There isnt much else to describe in this review -... More

Just a tad chaotic, confusion with the booking time, number of guests and guest names. That said the staff were friendly enough and the food when it arrived was very good.

Like the rest of Rockliffe Hall -- horrendously over priced, reasonable service, disabled parking has disappeared and you have to accept eating with others dressed in their dressing gowns ........ not all the elevators work ! The price one pays for financially supporting the local football team ?

Ate lunch during my spa weekend, all of our food was lovely, not amazing but lovely. The cocktails are expensive but they are worth it! Definitely recommend a Hugo cocktail! Staff are friendly and very helpful.

My hubby and I decided that since we both work very hard we'd pop to RH for an afternoon appetitive and tea last Saturday afternoon. We decided to go to the Club House as had never been. Granted it was 5 pm and from walking in we realised this was definitely the graveyard shift at this establishment. Although we had... More
