“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

As you may notice I have written several reviews of Rudding Park all of them very positive.

We have just returned from another weekend at the hotel and if anything the place has improved. They had organized a spectacular bonfire and fire work display which added to the wonderful experience, but once again the staff and their perfect approach to guests made the weekend very very special.

It really really is a wonderful hotel and I'd urge anyone who had the chance to visit to take the opportunity.

Amazing place, outstanding service, beautiful rooms, wonderful food. We arrived and were immediately attended to like royalty. Checked in and taken to our room which had been upgraded for my birthday surprise. The room was outstanding (the Billing room) beautiful furnishings and decor looking out in to the grounds. A bottle of champagne was awaiting us along with other goodies Molton Brown to name a few. The service was on another level, nothing was too much trouble. We dined in the clock tower restaurant for dinner and breakfast. The food was fantastic and a good choice was on offer. We have a disabled child so this was a break from the daily grind and it really was just perfect. I would highly recommend this place as u really are treated amazingly. Absolutely first class and I have no negative comments apart from I didn't want to check out.

Room Tip: The rooms are all beautiful, ours was the Billing Room and was outstanding. Would recommend this roo...

Rudding Park is a little slice of luxury in a charming country setting. You pay enough for the experience, but it is worth it for a special occasion or to get away from the stresses of life. the rooms are excellent - it is worth paying the upgrade for an executive room - and having a selction of classic music on tap is a nice touch. The grounds are beautiful and staff are friendly and helpful.

It is a bit of a shame that guests cannot use the spa facilities - ie steam room etc - without paying for a treatment, and a swimming pool would be an excellent addition. The restaurant was nice, but the foos was not as good as it should have been for the price, although breakfast was excellent. The only other drawback is that the venue is something of a wedding conveyor belt, but it's hard to criticise the hotel for making the most of the facilities.

Al in all a very relaxing and enjoyable experience.

I've stayed at Rudding probably thirty times now and it just gets better and better, from the attentive service to their clever use of data capture. Rudding is my favourite hotel in the world

The location I remote enough for it to feel like a treat yet local enough to even trip for lunch

I fully recommend this haven

Been back again this time for my birthday, once again service and accommodation excellent, went for the Folifoot room this time for a treat.
We used the spa this time too both days the staff and their treatments were of the highest standard.
Thank you too Pru who sorted out a query we had whilst we were there, this made our departure so much easier for us.
I just love Rudding Park and that's that.

Room Tip: Push the boat out if you can with a Folifoot room its worth it.

A really terrific hotel, something I don't often write. We stayed in a simular hotel near Tadcaster back in August and I wrote that the hotel could have been so good, but it let itself down through poorly trained staff. This could not be said of Rudding Park. All the staff we met had a smile on their face, were courtious, extremely helpful and went out of their way to make our stay a real pleasure. The old manor house has had new sections built in harmony with the original buildings, which just makes it look so good - something many simular hotels do not spend the money on. The bedrooms were excellent - large rooms, large bed, large flat screen tv, fab bathroom, etc. Food in the resultant was also excellent, if not a little pricey. Treatments in the spa were also ver god. There was a wedding on the sat night we stayed, but you would never have know - the hotel does a great job at separating the normal functions of a hotel, with that of the wedding guests, which resulted in us never really hearing anything from the wedding. So overall, a truly fab-u-lous hotel - well worth the 4hour journey to get there!
