“19th Anniversary at the Rufford Arms”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

My wife and I shared a romantic night away at the Rufford Arms to celebrate our 19th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday 22nd June 2013. We had Room 15 which was spacious, warm, clean and comfortably and furnished with a lovely king size bed and modern en suite bathroom. This room does look on to the road, at the front of the hotel, which i have noted others say is noisy, we didn't think so, the only noise we did hear was the hotel front glass door occasionally closing during the afternoon, but this was not a big issue nor a problem in the evening.
We shared an evening meal in the restaurant with friends which was to the usual really high standards we have come to expect and enjoy here. We also made some new friends both at dinner and at breakfast in the morning, which was also excellent. All in all our experience, though briefer than on reflection we would have liked, was nothing less than first class. We do only live 5 miles away but could heartily recommend this hotel and restaurant to anyone.
Thanks to all the staff, both restaurant and hotel including Sue the owner and Dave the manager, who welcomed and looked after us from moment of arrival to our leaving the following morning. You have made our Anniversary something special and we hope to see you again soon.

Room Tip: We had room 15, this is a family room, and would be happy to stay here again

Visited this Hotel recommended by a family member who lives nearby. They couldn't put us up as other family members got in 1st. Stayed for 2 nights. Our romm was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpfull. The restaurant was excellent. Obviously popular with locals the restaurant was full on a Friday night. Great choice of food and Breakfast was also good. Good hotel and highly recommended.

A small hotel with pleasant clean modern rooms and bathrooms. The evening meal offers good choice for good value. The food was delicious especially the dessert special for that evening.The staff are attentive and adaptable. We would recommend this hotel for short breaks.The hotel has no lounge area for coffee etc and this might put us off staying longer than 1night.

Stayed for two nights over a bank holiday weekend. Our double room was spotlessly clean as was the modern bathroom and the bed was very comfortable. We ate in the restaurant both nights and thoroughly enjoyed two excellent meals. All of the staff were friendly and attentive at all times even though it was incredibly busy. The only niggle with the hotel was that the walls are very thin which meant that we were woken very early on both days. That said, I slept very well and will certainly be returning as this place is a real find!

Room Tip: Try to request a room that faces away from the road

We went with 2 friends on 18th May and it was an excellent evening from the word go - the welcome from the staff, food and drink and service were top-notch. The staff were friendly & attentive without being instrusive. We'll be back.

We stayed for one night after visiting relatives nearby. Three adults and two young boys in our group. Our rooms of 1 x twin and 1 x double were clean, modern and very spacious. The double room had a cot in it for our one year old which still left plenty of room, considering this room also had a relaxing couch in it you can picture how spacious this room was.

We had dinner and breakfast in the adjoining restaurant and we could not fault the food or service and were well looked after.

An enjoyable one night stay and could easily have stayed for a few nights more if we had more time to explore the local area.

I attended my inlaws 50th Wedding anniversary dinner on Saturday and I have to say its been a while since I been so impressed by the attention paid by the staff. The Restaurant was packed yet nothing was to much trouble and this really does matter in my view. All of the food was served promptly and was very good and enjoyed by all. Well done Rufford Arms.
