We booked a 2 nights stay in this hotel 1. I have attempted to call reception several times in 24 h to finally go through and enquire about treatment booking. 2. Only when speaking to someone I was informed that you would only get 2h access to the SPA facilities per stay and that they took the liberty to book a slot in for me with no consideration to our schedules. 3 The mattress in the Armstrong apt 4 that we stayed in was terrible, and the double bed was actually 2 single mattresses joined together. 4 the sink in the en-suite was damaged/cracked 5 I've had better breakfast in a no-star B&B. 6 We have requested that no one enters our room during our stay and that was disregarded. 7 The staff got our breakfast wrong on both days. 8 Due to the Scotland football team being there the place was crawling with security, when we initially arrived, looking for the hotel reception in order to check-in we had 2 of them screaming at us from a balcony pointing us to the SPA reception ...another 2 came rushing towards us on the 2nd day saying we shouldn’t walk on the sidewalk but rather go on the street... when we asked why one of then just said "its the rules" To sum it up, I do not recommend staying in the hotel, for us it was a total waste of money, the SPA facilities are nice but you can/should book those separately.

Stayed in tiplady lodge for my girlfriends 21st birthday. Arrived just after check in time, lady at the desk was fabulous and offered us a ride up to our room on a buggy by a really outgoing polite man. Loved everything here apart from the clubhouse which was really slow service considering there were only 5 tables with people on them. The food came out fast however the muscles had no real taste and I had a few closed shells. I ordered 2 cocktails that arrived 20 minutes late which I sent back as they tasted of water. However great hotel minus the clubhouse. Thanks rock cliff

I visited the spa at lRockcliff having recently moved locally and was keen to experience it. It was a fantastic day with my friend. Treatments were well executed and we enjoyed the upgrade to the spa garden, well Worth it and we had a sunny day too! All staff polite, discreet and covid secure and we enjoyed our lunch at the club house, will definitely be back!

Just had to thank everyone at Rockliffe for a great short break to celebrate our Ruby Wedding. The only thing to put a damper on things was the security men due to the Scotland Football team being there. To go up the stairs for our Massage to find a security chap sat at the top gawping at ladies passing in their gowns was not on. Especially as my daughter has visual impairment and I had to make sure she was fully covered to get past him. I am surprised management at Rockliffe allowed it. Sorry to moan. Besides that, we did enjoy our stay and it was nice to see you all again. Linda and Emma

Dear 'Linda D', It was a pleasure to speak to you on the phone tonight and thank you for taking the time to go through your feedback with me. Firstly, thank you for choosing to stay with us for such a special occasion and for taking the time to post a review. It was wonderful to read that you had a ‘great short stay’ and I have shared your kind words with the team. I was concerned to read your comment relating to the security guard in the Spa which is why I called you this evening to discuss it further. As mentioned, please be assured I have dealt with this matter. I am delighted that you enjoyed another stay with us and please do contact me once you book again at chris.cooper@rockliffehall.com as I would love to personally welcome you and the family back in the near future. I look forward to hearing from you soon Kind regards Chris Cooper Director of Operations

Planned this for over a year so was really looking forward to visiting for a spa break. First impressions count and to be met with a surly security guard who assumed we were not meant to be guests put us off in a big way. Highly unprofessional and I would have expected more. Once ‘allowed’ inside (it felt more like an military camp than a hotel) we were greeted by some fantastic staff, Anton and his team. We were informed that the security was part of the Scottish Football teams support who were also staying at the hotel. Some lovely grounds to explore and we did but a lot was out of bounds by patrolling security. This really did not add to our enjoyment (They also appeared to be short staffed in the clubhouse for Breakfast). We really wish we had been informed of the external security presence prior to coming. It’s a pity because when you indulge in an experience such as this, it’s the sum of the parts that make up the whole, so while the hotels own staff were professional, the rooms great and the spa very good, it was ultimately spoilt by the security presence that I’m pretty sure don’t match Rockliffe’s brand values.

Dear David, Thank you for taking the time to write a review follow your recent stay with us. I am pleased that you enjoyed most aspects of your stay, but I am of course very disappointed to learn that your encounters with the security team tarnished your experience. Although the security team are not Rockliffe Hall team members, it is still imperative that they conduct themselves in a friendly, approachable and professional manner. I can assure you that I have taken your feedback very seriously and have addressed the points you raised in your comments with the security team. Providing exceptional, unrivalled and lasting memories for our guests is at the very heart of what we do and I am delighted that Anton and the Front of House team managed to demonstrate that. I do hope to welcome you back to Rockliffe Hall in the near future. Kind regards Chris Cooper Director of Operations
