“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

This was our second stay at Rudding Park.
First time round we had a few niggles but this stay was excellent.
We had a Follyfoot Wing Spa Room which was spacious and luxurious.
Dinner in the Clocktower restaurant was delicious, as was breakfast the next morning.
All in all, an excellent stay.

Room Tip: Follyfoot Wing rooms are worth the extra tariff.

We booked to stay at Rudding Park as part of a spa break which included dinner, bed & breakfast and a spa treatment. The hotel is beautiful both inside and out. We were made to feel very welcome by every member of staff who couldn't do enough to help you. The room we stayed in (Follifoot Wing Spa Room) was absolutely amazing with a huge bed and tasteful décor, the bathroom had a gorgeous roll top bath and our own private steam room. The spa area of the hotel is lovely and the massages we had as our chosen treatments were the best we've ever had! The evening meal in the Clocktower restaurant was wonderful. Delicious, well presented food, served in lovely surroundings. Breakfast the following morning was excellent too, with a vast continental selection and cooked menu. We would highly recommend this hotel and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Follifoot Wing Spa Room - Amazing!

After reading all the great reviews for years we have been looking forward to finally seeing for ourselves what all the hype is about. We celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary and wanted to do something special.
We booked a spa room with steam room and upon arrival had been upgraded to one of the spa suites. This was a lovely room and I already didn't want to come home.
We both had a spa treatment which was lovely. We would have booked extra ones but were put off by the £15 per treatment weekend supplement.
Instead we relaxed in the room prior to dinner.
We enjoyed our food and the staff were fantastic, however the set up of tables always puts me off somewhat with rows of 2x2, we could hear both sides conversations so somewhat put us off ours. The couple on one side were not enjoying the food and were saying rather loudly how much so whilst eating it all up! We made our escape before it turned nasty! A bit off putting for your anniversary meal. And a somewhat pin in our bubble.
As a result we paid £10 to have our breakfast in our room. Just to avoid this. For a treat we were happy to pay, but the toast arrived cold and no butter. Other bits we had ordered were not on the tray but we didn't want to bother anyone yet again. As a result we felt a little let down especially for the surcharge we had paid.
Would we return? Possibly and probably. For the price we paid it is a lot of money to justify for one night to have to listen to other people's problems in public and have small things overlooked. On the other hand we've returned home to the kids feeling relaxed and money can't buy you that!

Dear Guest

Thank you for staying with us at Rudding Park for your Anniversary and for taking the time to share your experience with the Trip Advisor community. Happy Anniversary once again from all of us.

We’re so glad that you chose to celebrate your 10th wedding anniversary with us and enjoyed one of our Spa suites which left you feeling relaxed and special .Your comments complementing the hotel room, the staff and beautiful surroundings of Rudding Park are all a delight to read and act as a constant source of motivation to all the team here at Rudding Park.

We can only apologise that the table set up in the restaurant was not to your liking and caused you to be disturbed by other guests which I am sure you will understand is not easily controlled. Equally we were disappointed that the treat you had arranged for yourselves of breakfast in bed had items missing, this falls below the standards upon which we pride ourselves and we have put in place some retraining to prevent any further reoccurrences.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Rudding Park, and do remember that by booking with us directly you’ll be sure to receive the best available rate and latest special offers.

Kind Regards

I think we can now call ourselves 'regulars' this being our 7th or 8 th visit??? The reasons why we keep returning don't change: superb service, excellent accommodation, delicious food and fantastic golf. During our last visit it was busier than usual (weddings, conference, etc) but this did not compromise the quality or care we received.
Without sounding boring by duplicating my previous reviews - this is the most consistently good quality hotel I know of (my hubby travels and stays in many, many high class hotels in Europe & US). I cannot recommend highly enough - you will not be disappointed.
THANK YOU everyone at RP; I am looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: If you can afford to upgrade, Follifoot rooms are worth every penny.

We were fortunate enough to stay here and share the superb service and facilities of this hotel as the Pro cycling teams of Team Sky, Omega Quick Step and IAMs. All I can say is that the staff were briliiant, from those who checked us in, thanks Stephen for Room 361, to Amy who checked us out and gave us some amazing stories about the cycling teams. The rooms were amazing, clean, vast array of complimentary items and breakfast in the conservatory is lovely. All the staff did an amazing job on a very busy weekend to make us still feel very special. We will never forget our stay and look forward to coming back. Thank you to all

Room Tip: Ask for one at the end of the corridor ;-)

We have just experienced a most wonderful meal in this Harrogate hotel.The setting is perfect for a summer's evening;-the Clocktower restaurant overlooks parkland grounds(where we took a stroll after our dinner).The meal itself was first class & so was the service -especially our waitress Sonia, from Portugal.She was very friendly but also at the same time extremely professional-a real asset to Rudding Park!(we wish her well in her future career).
What can I say about the food?--- my crab starter & monkfish main were perfectly cooked & beautifully presented. My husband chose scallops & then the lamb-which again were beautifully presented & excellently cooked. Thank you to all the staff who made this special dinner an occasion to remember.

We stayed here 1 night for a wedding. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating or friendly. We were able to check in early and shown to our room. It was beautifully decorated and every detail was thought of, from the Molton Brown toiletries to the mini ladybird massagers!

As far as the food goes, I have never had such amazing food at a wedding. It honestly tasted similar to a tasting menu I had at a restaurant in London!

Amazing all around and would definitely come back if I'm in the area.
