After a six month search for a venue for our long awaited small family wedding blessing, we chose Rudding Park. Thank goodness we did, because it was 'amazing'. From the moment we arrived the magic begun. The Staff did everything they possibly could to make our special occasion fabulous. The Reception Staff couldn't do enough to make welcome, happy and comfortable. Whilst we were escorted to our spacious and lovely Suite (259), our car was being unpacked and parked up for us. Our cake was quickly whisked away to the kitchen for careful storage. Our suit carriers were hung up for us in our wardrobes, and there was also a welcome card. Our Suite (259) was superbly presented and we enjoyed getting ready in it for our Wedding, it was perfect.
I then visited the Spa, it was spotless and top class. A perfect start to our stay at the Hotel, and I would highly recommend it. Very relaxing and luxurious, with lovely Staff.
We had dinner on the eve of our Wedding in the Clocktower Restaurant, the service was fantastic, 5 star and our food was delicious. The ambience and decor was perfect, with a gorgeous pink chandelier, very romantic.
The next day was perfect. We had our own Duty Manager for the day, (Nick), and he looked after the co-ordination. He went above and beyond to ensure everything went seamlessly, he is a credit to Rudding Park and we thank him very much.
The Chapel was filled with candlelight provided by Colette at the Hotel, and again, she went above and beyond. So many, many candles, it was enchanting. It took our breath away.
Afterwards we had canapés and champagne in the library, which is so chic and trendy, with a swing seat hanging from the ceiling. Can't wait to see our pictures of it! Our Wedding Breakfast was held in Private Dining Room of the Clocktower Restaurant. It had been beautifully decorated on our behalf, and our mini wedding cake was displayed on a magnificent cake stand with a very impressive cake knife. Again, the very best. The service and attention we received in the Private Dining Room was outstanding. It was of the highest level of service and professionalism. The Restaurant Manager kindly laid up the same room so that we could have a private family breakfast the next morning. A bowl of fruit had even been decorated with chocolate ladybirds for my nephew.
We were especially bowled over by how amazing the Staff were with my three year old nephew. He was given a football on arrival, his name was written in foam letters in the bathtub and someone brought him a warm cookie with his name on shortly after he had arrived. We are so grateful for how welcome he was made to feel. RP is a very child friendly hotel.
When we checked out our car was returned to us at the entrance of the Hotel and it had been carefully repacked for us! Again, super service.
We cannot thank the Staff at Rudding Park enough for making our special occasion so wonderful.
Their thoughtfulness and special touches made our stay magic. Every single member of Staff is a true professional and gave the highest level of service, we are so very grateful to them for making our very special occasion a treasured memory.
Rudding Park is truly five star. If anyone is looking for somewhere to celebrate a special occasion or wedding, choose Rudding Park and you will not be disappointed.
Thank you to RP and we look forward to checking in again soon.
