During these uncertain pandemic times it is so lovely to come and stay in a hotel that has thought of everything. They made us feel so safe and welcome. Special mention to the lovely staff in the golf clubhouse restaurant

It was the first experience at Rockliffe Hall for me and my husband. I am very sorry to say that at the five-star hotel, I would expect high quality services, which was not given to us. Especially ladies at the reception of the hotel and the spa need to be more qualified how to meet and greet and treat guests. AIso, would like to mention our breakfast at the Clubhouse. The staff were unpleasant, we felt very unwelcome. My breakfast, Eggs Royal, has been cold and had to ask twice for a toast, which they brought after we finished the meal. The spa has been very clean and all the staff at the spa areas were very nice. But at the end ladies at the front desk did not even say goodby.

We have visited Rockliffe on numerous occasions so decided to book a staycation in familiar surroundings. We have stayed in the Old Hall rooms on previous visits but opted for the New Hall this time - the room was very clean and spacious with a lovely terrace overlooking the gardens. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the spa garden and preferred this to using the indoor facilities as it was far quieter. We ate in the Clubhouse and Orangery during our stay which were both wonderful. Staff were friendly,professional and happy to help in anyway possible. Staff and guests were following lots of COVID procedures which made us feel safe and comfortable. However,we would have preferred more consistency with temperature checks as these were carried out on arrival and at the Clubhouse but not at the spa or the Orangery. The only other minor point for consideration would be to access apps on the TV,such as Netflix,rather than having to mirror screen through the WiFi. Overall,we had a lovely stay which felt relatively normal given the current restrictions.

Dear rachele799, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay here at Rockliffe Hall. I am delighted that you enjoyed it so much and I will be sure to share your comments with the team. I am also pleased that the team made you feel ‘safe and comfortable’ and that you valued the COVID measures we have in place. I just wanted to clarify the point you made regarding the temperature checks - We do carry out a temperature check with all residential guests at the Hotel Reception, so it is not necessary to carry out these checks again in the Orangery and Spa as they are in the same building. Of course, these temperature checks are carried out in the Orangery and Spa for non-residential guests who visit the outlets directly. With regards to the Clubhouse, we do carry out temperature checks with everyone as it is a separate building. I hope knowing this it will instill confidence that we do have a robust procedure in place, I have taken your comment regarding the TV app and would like to thank you for bringing it to my attention. We look forward to welcoming you back Rockliffe Hall. Kind regards Chris Cooper Operations Manager

This was an amazing place to stay. It’s so clean and the COVID measures excellent. It’s truly five star. So places loose their identity with new rules but felt like a normal trip. Staff so lovely everyone of them. Food is amazing and don’t skip breakfast the poached eggs were the most perfectly round I have seen with a yolk explosion! You won’t regret staying here and I have stayed in many 5 star that I wouldn’t rate as one but this is.

Of course, our priority is to keep our guests and team members protected, but we are also working very hard to ensure that these measures do not impact our guests’ journey in any way and that we still deliver special and memorable experiences. I am delighted to read that we managed to achieved this during your stay. Your comments regarding the staff and the food is much appreciated, I will be sure to share them with the team. I do hope we can welcome you back soon. Kind regards Chris Cooper Operations Manager

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Rockliffe Hall in August, accompanied by my Hearing Dog Inca. Having been visitors to Rockliffe Hall on many occasions - both of us enjoying dining in the Clubhouse or the Orangery, my wife is a regular in the Spa, and my daughter was married at the Hall in May 2013 - we were looking forward to our stay. In these challenging times, it was wonderful to find an oasis of calm and peace, perfect for recharging our batteries. Although we were staying for one night, we actually lost track of time and told another guest that we were thoroughly enjoying 'the weekend', such was the effect the place had on us! Everyone made us very welcome and the courtesy and service throughout was impeccable - from those who greeted us on Reception to those tending the gardens. However, we would particularly like to highlight those in the Orangery who were wonderful - especially Owen, but also David, Adam and Munga. Inca would also like to mention the lovely lady who brought him a bundle of goodies - including more treats than was good for him! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be returning.
