I stayed at Rudloe Hall for two nights - both nights were spent in the hall itself. I stayed in a classic double room on the first night - It was by no means unpleasant - in fact the décor and cleanliness were impeccable. The only issue I encountered was that, being above the bar, I could still hear the television from downstairs quite clearly until I went to complain (politely I might add). This was then rectified by a member of staff, but any hotel worth it's salt would have taken this into consideration when designing the layout.
I dined in the restaurant four times during my stay and the food was always a delight. For me the highlight was the breakfast porridge served with a raspberry coulis - a simple, yet inspired dish. All food was neatly presented and the restaurant areas were polished and prim!
On my second night I upgraded to a superior/deluxe room - Given that I only had to cough up an extra £25 for this, the difference in room quality was vast. It was on the second floor (so well away from the bar) and the views were spectacular. I do appreciate that in any period building these room discrepancies are to be expected to an extent; However, I cannot deny that the second night was much more pleasant than the first and if I ever return I will definitely be staying on the second floor.
Overall, I would say that some reviewers have been overly scathing of this place. Yes the on-going renovations and location of the bar are not ideal. Yet for me this was compensated for by the welcoming and polite members of staff, the tasteful furnishing, romantic location, ample parking and finally the je ne sais quoi?
