With a décor that veers on the right side of contemporary, each of the rooms and suites impress with designer-led furnishings, up-to-date gadgetry, and lovely bathrooms with roll top baths and Molton Brown toiletries.

On the dining front, choose from Horto for contemporary fine dining, or the Clocktower Restaurant.
How to Get There
We have spent the weekend being completely spoilt by the wonderful staff at Rudding Park. Exceptional customer service, fantastic food and cosy beautiful rooms. The attention to detail is fantastic and the spa is not to be missed. We didn't want to leave!
Stayed here while attending a wedding. The staff were very friendly and efficient, the room a good size and clean with bathrobes and slippers in closet and a minibar. Usual toiletries in bathroom.
As we were attending a wedding we were given a reduced rate but when we asked to stay the night before the wedding as we had to travel a good distance we were told that the room rate would be £335 per room which we thought was excessive as we wouldn't have had time to use the spa etc.
Drinks in the bar were over priced - 1 bottle cider, 1 pint, 2 pink gin & lemonade came to £29.70. - it was over £3 for the lemonade which was taken from a 2 litre bottle which would cost less than a £1 for them to buy, a very big markup.
The meal was excellent, but there were 10 people round a table which was a bit squashed.
We wont mention the price of the minibar but a small bottle of water was over £3, so we just drank tap water. A 2oz bar of chocolate cost £2.
We enjoyed our stay but will not stay again as we found it to be very overpriced.
Firstly I don't normally write reviews but don't feel it would be fair not to write one...
We visited Rudding Park for our "mini moon", a bit of us time..
We were upgraded to a suite free of charge as a congratulations and wow!! What a suite. We were left prosecco on ice and a congratulations card which was a nice touch. The room was stunning, 2 bathrooms (one with a roll top bath) a huge bed, balcony, separate living room and its own steam room!
From arrival, the staff were amazing, nothing was too much trouble at all. Very friendly and approachable from the reception staff to the spa staff to the restraunt staff.
The spa was amazing, great facilities, very clean and again amazing staff. The infinity pool was a personal favourite of ours. We had 2 treatments during our stay, a mud rasul treatment and a deep tissue massage. The mud treatment lasted 25 mins and was explained to us what to do and then we were just left to it. Our skin was left feeling amazing afterwards, would recommend this treatment. We had a couple's deep tissue massage and it was absolutely amazing, came out feeling brand new, credit to the staff.
We had an evening meal in the clocktower restaurant, very helpful, friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. We both opted for the fillet steak and was undoubtedly the best steak we have both ever had, the steak just melted in the mouth, I could of eaten it with no teeth. For pudding I had the chocolate mousse and it was too notch as expected, the portion size was perfect. My missus went for the cheesecake and she was also very impressed.
The next morning we had breakfast in bed, again from start to finish the service, the food, the staff, the presentation was amazing..
All I can say about Rudding Park is; of you're thinking of going, just do it. You will not regret it.
We will definitely be returning at some point in the future.
Thank you Rudding Park for making our stay a memorable one...
Clock Tower for a function with close friends. Drinks and canapés. Great staff, faultless service. Lovely atmosphere. Delightful nibbles and wonderful champagne. A really top all around experience for several dozen people. Polite, professional and superb in all respects.
We’ve been here multiple times - love everything about it and one night away here and it feels like a holiday. A shout out to Jonay in the bar for the amazing cocktails (despite the scary price tag).
Why a 4 not a 5 - the conservatory area near the bar looked a little tired, great service but sometimes too many staff so can feel a little intrusive and lastly - ordered breakfast, only great to take the order without a pen and paper if you have a good memory. When I mentioned to the suited waiter there was no egg and other things wrong, he said sorry but then didn’t sort it out. Just missing a few bits of attention to detail but still the most lovely hotel around!
