Somewhat disappointed by Afternoon Tea at Clubhouse
Reviewed 2 days ago

Booked afternoon tea for a friend’s 60th birthday treat. 5 ladies, 4 of whom had never been to Rockliffe, were excited to enjoy a 5* hotel experience. However this did not happen as we were directed from the main entrance round to the clubhouse, which is a very nicely appointed restaurant but is still a golf clubhouse and not the 5* hotel we expected.
The service was good. The tea was nice but similar to all the others I’ve had and at £25 one of the more expensive teas. We presumed we were paying this for the hotel experience which we didn’t actually get.
Word of advice, make sure your booking is actually in the hotel if you decide to book.

We arrived at Rockliffe to a great welcome from the staff, and my husband and I were made to feel very special - we were in for a real treat.
We were shown to the most fabulous room, with fantastic views across the golf course. The attention to detail was second to none, with even a television in the most luxurious bathroom I have ever seen. We had a superb dinner in the Brasserie with fabulous views of the grounds. The spa was clean and relaxing, and the experience in the newly added garden spa was an experience at another level. Breakfast was served in the Orangery, and, were most hotels are doing buffet style hot food, we were made to feel special and served breakfast by impeccably dressed staff.
My husband played golf at the hotel, and he said it was a magnificent course.
Finally, you get the impression that the staff are really happy and proud of their hotel, and we both believe that this hotel is the best in the the north east of England, and better than Gleneagles.
We will be back!

Anniversary treat

Another excellent stay at this gorgeous hotel. We stayed in our favourite suite in the old hall and spent time in the sun in the spa garden. We had the 6 course taster menu in the Orangery in the evening and were not disappointed. The whole experience was 5 star with superb service, amazing food and great wine. Hopefully won't be long before we return.

Lovely but...

We have stayed before. If you go for one night you get very little time in the spa, so probably better to eat before you arrive (3pm) and make the most of the spa. We booked a two night stay. We got a reasonable deal for BB and got a nice room. We ate in the Brasserie each evening and the first evening the service was slow. The manager of the restaurant was very good and worked incredibly hard (sorry, we didn't get your name). We had a truly relaxing break. The spa is being renovated but generally this didn't bother us. this is a large and very lovely sap. Our main gripe was that this was a special few days to relax after some family traumas and we had such a lovely time until the second evening. We had a lovely meal (very lovely and the Brasserie manager gave us a table at short notice) and we were very relaxed and we got into bed and lo and behold as we set off to watch the news the tv exploded (I Kidd you not). Obviously these things can happen and I give credit to the duty person who forgive me being in bed and too tired to get up and tried his best to sort the problem. It wasn't sortable. We were asked if we wanted to move rooms. We were ready for sleep, so we decided to leave the room move. As we tried to sleep it became clear the tv as turning on and off and flashing. We then asked to move. The staff were very good and moved us quickly to a much better room but we were shattered and not best comfortable (without our things which we chose to leave rather than pack up). We were offered something from the bar, which we first refused (we wanted to sleep) but on having to move rooms we asked for a drink from the bar and for which we were subsequently charged. The following morning we had to retrieve all of our belongings from the other room so we missed our hour in the spa (you have to leave by 11). I have to say a lovely couple of days was spoilt by this and I was fed up there was no recompense offered. The lovely room was appreciated but we were barely in it and we really would have preferred to have our hour in the spa on the morning we left. I voiced my concerns to the girl as we left and she said she 'sorry'. I am sure if we had called the manager we may have got some recompense but to be honest, you shouldn't have to. A shame, as a small kind gesture of recompense would have gone a long way.

Lovely hotel, great service, excellent dinner

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Rockliffe - excellent service all round, lovely rooms, and a wonderful dinner with colleagues in the Orangery. Great food and wonderful accompanying wines thanks to sommelier Daniel.
