What can I say... from the moment we pulled up outside the hotel we were greeted like royalty. We booked for an overnight spa break which included dinner, breakfast and the use of the spa plus treatments and the famous garden spa facilities. The whole experience so far has been second to none. We’re were upgraded to a beautiful apartment and really couldn’t have asked for more. We’ve only been here for five hours but needless to say we’re completely blown away. Can’t wait for dinner tonight and a fun packed day tomorrow. If Carlsberg did hotels...*******👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼

Fantastic two night stay!!!
Reviewed 20 hours ago

Myself and my fiancé have just returned from a fantastic two night break at Rockliffe Hall. We usually go away twice a year and always go somewhere different, however after visiting Rockliffe Hall we are already planning another visit later in the year. From the moment we stepped foot in the hotel we felt welcome and relaxed. All reception staff were lovely and very helpful; very swift check in and our room was even ready by 1.45pm.
We stayed in a new hall superior double, the room was gorgeous; we couldn’t believe how spacious it was. The bathroom is amazing, all the little extra touches were perfect. The bed was so comfortable and our bedroom view was so nice!
The hotel itself is kept so well, the grounds are lovely and we enjoyed two walks around the grounds during our stay.
We visited the spa both days and included was a 2hour slot in the spa garden, the spa is amazing!!! Absolutely nothing to fault at all!!! Felt very relaxed! We also enjoyed a mud rasul, this was a great experience, well worth giving a go.
We enjoyed a meal in the brasserie on our first night, this again was gorgeous food, fantastic service from all staff and very enjoyable!
We had breakfast in our room on our first morning and then before checking out enjoyed breakfast in the orangery, couldn’t fault breakfast, so many choices and everything cooked to perfection!
Overall, our stay has been the best we’ve ever had in a hotel! We have visited lots of hotels over the past 6 years and this is most definitely one of, if not the best.
Well done to all the staff! And thank you for a fantastic stay! We will definitely visit again and are planning our next two night stay for the summertime.

Relaxing spa break
Reviewed 22 hours ago

My partner organised a spa break at Rockliffe Hall for us and we were both very impressed by the entire experience.

The building itself is beautiful, with the new parts in keeping with the old hall. When we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by friendly staff who immediately offered to take our bags to our rooms as we had a seat and checked in. Our room was a superior twin in the New Hall overlooking the grounds of the hotel.

As we had booked the spa break package, we had dinner, bed and breakfast included. Before venturing to the restaurant, we enjoyed a couple of drinks in to the cocktail bar, which was lovely. Dinner was served in the brasserie and each course was delicious. Although the set menu was a little limited, you could also choose from the à la carte menu if you wanted to. The staff could not have been more attentive - they were extremely keen to help and ensured everything was to our liking.

The following day, we had spa treatments booked in and were very well looked after. I had the hot oil full body massage and my partner had the men's deep tissue massage - we both felt very relaxed afterwards. The spa itself is lovely, but quite typical of this style of hotel. There is a pool, hydro pool, two different saunas, a steam room and an 'igloo' room. The outdoor hot tub is a nice touch. The hotel also has a 'spa garden' but we hadn't paid the extra for use of this.

Within the grounds, 'pods' have been built for use by children and activities seemed to have been set up too. The children's play area is excellent and the splash pad is available in warmer weather. For those visiting with children, I imagine these facilities would be very much appreciated.

Overall, this was a fantastic stay. The friendliness, professionalism and helpfulness of the staff make this hotel stand out amongst similar venues we have visited. We would definitely return for another stay.

Lovely but...
Reviewed 24 hours ago

Lovely hotel but was a bit of an anti climax. The staff were friendly and helpful. The spa was ok but the spa gardens extra cost was not worth it. I had the worst sleep ever the bed was uncomfortable and the pillows were not the hotel quality I have experienced elesewhere.

Valentine's day treat 💕
Reviewed 1 day ago

I have been coming to rockliffe hall for nearly 10 years now and it has to be my favourite by far.

This time was no exception, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel very special. We were greeted by a very friendly and welcoming gentleman who took care of our luggage and car. Whilst checking in the receptionist offered a drink which I took advantage of, a nice lime cordial which I took to my room with me. This was when our stay turned from great to amazing. We were told that we had had a complimentary upgrade from new hall to the old hall. Now this was a fantastic treat. I had not stayed in the old hall for many year so I was over the moon. Once shown to the room me & my boyfriend were absolutely blown away. It was gorgeous. This set the tone for the rest of our stay. We enjoyed our in room champagne which was beautiful and then headed down to the spa. We enjoyed a prosseco and dip in the pool along with the sauna and steam room then back to our room to get ready for our meal in the orangery.

Everything was perfect in the room and I mean perfect. We were so spoilt with the room. Once ready we headed down to the orangery where as we walked down the staircase could hear and see a pianist which was amazing. We waiting a little longer than usual to be seated but could see it was busy so made allowances for this. Once seated service was great, we were well looked after. During the meal I had a start of a migraine so once finished ordered a drink each to take to the room. I think this may of been due to the champagne - which was beautiful but too much can give me a headache especially when drinking during the day. So we went back to the room where we couldn't wait to get into the most comfortable bed ever.

We soon drifted off to sleep until I woke at 1.30am with terrible heartburn but I rang reception and they brought me some fresh milk up straight away which helped me go straight back to sleep until our breakfast arrived the next morning right on time. It was plentiful and of great quality. We had breakfast in bed and enjoyed our late check out of 12pm.

We did an express check out which was much easier than a regular checkout as it was busy and all we had to do was hand our express check out envelope in and leave our luggage and go to the spa for our spa garden time, which allowed us to go down in our robes and enjoy our time there until we left for home.

We had an amazing time, thanks so much for making it extra special.

We will be returning.
