Birthday Treat

My Husband and I have just returned from a fabulous weekend at Rockliffe Hall. It was booked as a treat for my 50th birthday . From start to finish I cannot fault anything. The booking process was easy, the hotel then contacted us a couple of days before to check & confirm the details with us. Concierge met us at the door, valet parked the car and had delivered our luggage to the room before we’d even finished check in. The Spa facilities are first class and the treatments were just spot on. Our room was in the New Hall section and was extremely spacious , again all the little details were what made it special. We ate both lunch & dinner in the Brasserie , the staff were attentive & explained the menu when asked. The cocktail bar was quite quiet but again the staff were happy to recommend drinks based on our tastes. Breakfast is served in the Orangery & a lovely setting looking out over the grounds. What is an absolute must is the Spa Garden experience. A tranquil haven with warm pools and beds looking out over the grounds , 2 hours is just not long enough :)
On departure our luggage was again taken straight out and put in our car for us , this was then moved to a convenient location ready for us to pick up when we left .All in all if you are considering Rockliffe for a luxurious break I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. I cannot wait to come back again .

Sunday lunch in Club House Very Disappointing

Sunday lunch in the Club House had good views, but food very disappointing,. Staff welcoming, but service when ordering a little slow, air conditioning blasting on a cold day, myself and another lady on another table had our coats round us, asked twice regarding heating, eventually they said turned air con off, but still chilly. Starters of cauliflower and cheese soup warming and tasty, Atlantic prawns served in a glass tankard, had to ask for lemon hot water so could clean fingers after shelling them, disappointing how served, kept stabbing fingers on parts of prawn. Chicken dry, stuffing served as small round pattie was dry and hard, pig in blanket large burnt sausage very salty, Yorkshire pud okay, roasties cold, seasonal veg and mash mediocre, it could have been air con made things cold, as plates were hot when served, cornflakes tart and custard, lovely, waffle and ice cream okay, waffle was a bit hard as if been put in microwave too long. Overall not good value at £30 a head plus drinks.

5/5 - Amazing Spa Hotel stay

First of all, the grounds and hotel look amazing. Very beautiful building and surroundings. Very quiet and well kept!

Door men grabbed our bags and took them to the room for us.

We checked in and had a sparkling cordial drink whilst doing so. We were then shown up to our room and shown how everything works. We stayed in room 203 one of the larger suites and it was HUGE! The pictures don’t do the size of the room justice. Comfy bed, really warm, clean, TV and amazing views out of the window. Bathroom a great size with a shower as well. Large Mini bar, ironing board, coffe machine, complimentary drinks, milk and biscuits, walk in cupboard for clothes and extra empty room in the corner (for suitcases etc). We also got 4 x dressing gowns and slippers. Can wear gowns and slippers down to the spa.

The interior of the hotel is amazing, stained glass windows, period pieces, paintings and a grand piano are on display.

We went down to the bar and the barman was very funny and very chatty. Had 2 x diet cokes which came to £6.50.

We then went to the spa which was great. Was a little hard to get a seat immediately but after 10 mins got 2 recliners. Had free fruit and drinks in the spa. There was an indoor cool pool, another warmer pool room with some great little cold/hot rooms like the igloo, sauna, mild sauna, salt room.

Outdoor Jacuzzi and cold bucket wash at dusk were fresh!

Spa is open till 9pm and get really quiet between 7pm-9pm.

We then went to room for room service and ordered 2 x cheese burgers and chips which came to £38. Really nice substantial burgers and massive thick cut chips!

Got a free movies package but we just watched TV and fell asleep. Great nights sleep.

In the morning went down to the Orangery restaurant were we got a great window seat and had a full English breakfast which was really really good. Had toast, juice, tea and coffee and helped ourselves to croissants, but they also have cereals, fruit, muffins and a selection of hot breakfasts like waffles and pancakes etc. Great place to eat. The fine dining restaurant is here as well for evening meals.

There were other thing we didn’t get round to like the separate Brassiere restaurant and a Halloween “event” which we didn’t have time to look at.

Then used the spa again in the morning as can use till check out @ 11am.
