“and there's more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2009

It's difficult to add anything to the various comments already posted here. The hotel has so very very much to recommend it.

A superb location, excellent public rooms, well appointed bedrooms, sublime food (especially the Yorkshire tapas) but above all the wonderful staff, from the porter who literally ran across the car park to help us unload the car, to the helpful and friendly housekeeping staff, but perhaps especially the bar and waiting staff who acheived just the right balance of being attentive without being overbearing. How do they remember your names with such ease.

However perhaps the measure of the hotel is that I did make a slightly negative comment on the customer survey card about a "wobbly" bathroom floor tile and even before I had reached home the operations manager had telephoned and left a message asking that I contact him to discuss. I wasn't actually given the chance to return his call because he telephoned again before I had chance expressing concern about my comment and explaining the situation. I found it really surprising that not only had the comments been read by a senior manager but that he had bothered to phone not once but twice to apologise.

With care like that from the management is easy to understand why the rest of the team are so attentive.

I organised my partners 40th birthday party here. The whole experience was extremely enjoyable. The staff are very attentive and catered to our every need, nothing was too much trouble. They are an absolute credit to the hotel. The bedrooms are lovely and very comfortable. Superb food both in the evening (we had a private room for dinner) and also at breakfast. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and we'll definitely be back!

Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Rudding Park and chose this hotel because of the reviews on this site and to be honest wanted to see if these are over exaggerated, but to my delight they are not.

From the moment you get out of your car you are made to feel special and very welcome. All the staff were exceedingly friendly and eager to help, with an example being opening my curtains on a very frosty morning to see a member of staff scraping the ice from all the guests cars.

The food in the clocktower restaurant was exceptional and really brought out the best from the local produce it uses.

Perhaps the owners and staff could set up training courses for other hotels to show them how to do it!!!

I can see why his hotel gets such great reviews. When the planned spa gets built it will be one of the best hotels in north of England. The staff are just fantastic and super helpful. Food is outstanding and the design and comfort is first class. Whoever manages/owns this property has done a great job

Our party of 12 lady golfers stayed at Rudding Park (again) in August. We returned to the hotel at the request of the Birthday Girl - who was celebrating her 70th! I informed the hotel that we were celebrating a birthday, prior to arrival and we could not believe their attention to detail. From the moment she stepped into reception, she was made to feel very special and this continued throughout the weekend. While the rest of the party had to put up with the excellent rooms, she was treated to a Suite, with seperate lounge area, large patio area, complete with champagne. On the evening of the birthday celebration, we were in a private room, just off the main dining room which was great. Again, we did not request this, but it allowed us to enjoy our evening without disturbing the other diners.
We have visited this hotel 4 or 5 times now and it never fails to deliver. The excellent customer service at Rudding Park, in my view, can not be beaten - we will be back!

  • Liked — The attention to detail - excellent customer service - nothing is too much trouble
  • Disliked — Absolutely no negatives!

My husband and I have just had a superb 3 day Christmas break at the lovely Rudding Park. We booked after seeing the Trip Advisor reviews which the hotel lived up to our expectations. The accommodation and food was excellent as you would expect. However, what made the short break so special for us was the genuine warmth and consideration of all the staff. A multinational team every person radiated happiness and helpfulness.

On Christmas morning I played in the 6-hole golf competition and again this was professionally organised and great fun with every detail being carefully taken care of.

We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone and would like to thank all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable.
