“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We have just returned from a two night dinner,bed &breakfast deal at this hotel and I can't praise it enough.
We had a gorgeous room and ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was amazing!!
It's surrounded by beautiful grounds and a great spot for visiting Harrogate .
Any hotel is only as good as it's service and staff and on all counts it's Five Star!
Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: If you can have a room with a patio you can sit and enjoy the beautiful grounds.

Rudding was great. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The staff provided excellent service and were very helpful. We enjoyed a cooking demonstration from Stephanie Moon, which was great fun, followed by an exquisite meal. Would thoroughly recommend.

My wife & I stayed here on our 15th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival, we were advised we had been upgraded to a room with a terrace, and complimentary champagne. A fantastic welcome!
The room was excellent - modern without being unwelcoming, huge bed and spotlessly clean. Bathroom was equally impressive, incorporating a walk-in shower & a rolltop bath. My wife took advantage of a spa treatment, and I used the gym, both excellent.
Evening meal;when we arrived at the restaurant the maitre d' wished us a happy anniversary (again, great touch!).
Our food was excellent, but the meal was the only area where we were slightly disappointed. The service was slightly rushed during our first course, and my wife's plate was taken within seconds of her putting down her fork. We were served by at least 4 different members of staff, which seemed to contribute to a slightly erratic table service.
Taking that into account, we had a wonderful stay, and for a hotel as large as this the personal touches were excellent, and much appreciated.

Room Tip: Follifoot rooms with terraces are exceptional.

Thank you for choosing Rudding Park to celebrate your 15th Wedding Anniversary, and for then taking the time to write your review.

We’re delighted to read that you enjoyed your time with us, and allow us to offer congratulations again on such a special occasion. Your comments referencing our reception team have of course been passed on and they are equally as glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us so much. Your comments regarding your room are also great to read, and a complement to our housekeeping team in their efforts in maintaining such lovely interiors for our guests.

I was however sorry to hear that you found the service you experienced in the Clocktower a little erratic and at times rushed, this does not reflect our usual standards and I can only apologise and assure you that your comments have been passed on to Stephane Legendre our Food & Beverage Manager who has assured me that he will be implementing further training with the team to avoid any reoccurrences.

Thank you again for your review, and we do hope to welcome you back to Rudding Park in the near future, do remember, by booking with us directly, you’re guaranteed to receive the best available rates and special offers, we’ll hopefully see you before your next anniversary!

Kind Regards

This was our second stay at this beautiful hotel. Absolutely everything was first class. The food was fantastic (just like Masterchef). The attention to detail was brilliant. We booked an overnight deal with dinner, bed and breakfast and were upgraded to a Follifoot room on arrival. We were made to feel incredibly comfortable and were particularly impressed with our Waiter for the evening, Alex Golding (a very polite, professional, friendly and charming young man). We will definitely return again and hopefully stay two nights next time.

Room Tip: Follifoot rooms are the newest addition to the hotel and hi tech view beautiful views.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing to return to Rudding Park and take the time to share your experience with the Trip Advisor Community.

Your comments complimenting not only your meal in the Clocktower, but the service and hotel in general are indeed a delight to read. These have of course been passed onto to all the departments you have mentioned and the chefs are equally as delighted to hear there dishes being compared to those appearing on Masterchef!

We do hope to see you back at Rudding Park very soon, and of course for a two night stay next time, do remember by booking with us directly we can guarantee the best available rates.

After staying at Rudding Park Hotel for a two night break we have only praise for everything we experienced whilst there.From the welcome we received upon our arrival to the excellent service at the restaurant,and the superb facilities and golf course.The hotel and it's staff go the extra mile to make sure guests are relaxed and comfortable.The superb golf course was very challenging,only spoilt by the incredibly unseasonal weather!Beautiful grounds,superb facilities,excellent restaurant,and finally extremely friendly professional welcoming staff make this somewhere to return to again and again.
The only negative comment could be perhaps the price of the restaurant wines.......a little less expensive and we would have had more.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing Rudding Park for a two night break away and for taking the time to write your lovely review.

We’re so glad that from the moment you arrived you thought the service was excellent and the facilities superb. We indeed make every effort to spoil our guests and as such nothing is ever too much trouble, we’re just sorry we weren’t able to get the sun out for you whilst enjoying a game of golf on our Hawtree Golf Course!

I was sorry to read that you felt our wine list was a little expensive, we do regularly compare our prices with other leading hotels in the area and find them quite competitive, however I have passed on your comments onto Stephane Legendre our Food & Beverage Manager who, I’m sure will take your suggestions into consideration.

We do hope to see you back at Rudding Park very soon and do be sure to keep an eye on our website and remember to book with us directly for the best available rates and special offers.

Kind Regards

Perfect from the moment we arrived and saw the beautiful church set in the grounds of the stately Rudding Park. Our spirits were lifted and continued rising from the warm welcome and attentiveness from the staff. Our anniversary stay was the best ever reminding us what life is really all about. After checking in we had a fab head-to-toe spa treatment side by side by two great therapists then afternoon tea in our room- sandwiches and cakes to die for! Evening meal later with a surprise from the chef decorating a plate with the words 'happy anniversary' and placing chocolates on it. Nothing whatsoever to disappoint - room fabulous, food wonderful and staff amazingly attentive. All simply perfect and looking forward to finding an excuse to get back again.

We have just returned from a one night stay at Rudding Park, it was simply wonderful. Everything about the hotel is 5 star.

We booked dinner, bed and breakfast to celebrate our wedding anniversary, choosing a Folifoot room. On arrival a complimentary bottle of pink cava was waiting for us on ice, which was lovely, thank you. The room was beautiful, with an enormous bed and lovely bathroom.

We had eaten in the Clocktower restaurant before and always had delicious food and excellent service. Once again we were not disappointed. Everything we chose was beautiful and the staff were excellent and very attentive.

After an very peaceful nights sleep, breakfast was served, and again it was excellent, with lots of choice.

We left reluctantly, promising ourselves we will return again soon.

Thank you for a wonderful stay it was excellent, and could not be faulted.

Daniel on reception was particularly friendly and helpful, a definite asset to the hotel.
