Historical Traveler Reviews Rudding Park Hotel Harrogate
Wonderful place to stay
We have just returned from a two night stay at Rudding Park. From the minute we entered until the minute we left we were made to feel relaxed, comfortable and that nothing was too much trouble.
We booked a golf package that included dinner, breakfast and unlimited golf over a two day period. It was exceptional value.
Our room was spotlessly clean, up to date and very comfortable. The meals were well cooked and presented.
The staff were friendly without being obtrusive. Special mention must go to Helen in the restaurant for her impeccable service.
A leisure facility would be the perfect addition to the hotel. It wasthe only thing lacking - but we went to the recommended health spa and found them just as accommodating. Would recommend without hesitation.
We've just come back from a friend's wedding at Rudding Park and I have to say - wow! The service, cleanliness, location, food - everything - was absolutely impeccable.
The staff are so lovely, everyone greets you with a good morning or good afternoon everytime they see you!
The grounds are gorgeous, as was the food. the rooms were very clean, stylish and well equipped.
We paid £150 for 1 night stay, which is very pricey and originally I was bothered because it's more than I would usually pay, but now I feel it was totally worth it for such a lovely experience.
I really can't recommend this place enough, go and see what I mean!
Stayed one night in the large suite. Everything about the hotel was excellent. The accomodation was very good with a spacious lounge and a large bedroom and two computers/flat screen tvs. The staff where very friendly and helpful and the restaurant was superb and very good value. The house speciality is a starter of "yorkshire tapas" and that was worth the stay alone!
The decor is very hip hotel in the public areas. No pool yet but one is planned. Our room was used by George Bush snr some weeks ago!
A really nice hotel that could do with improving its web site and brochures because they do not do it justice. If you are going to Harrogate stay here - it is only 5 minutes outside! We found it far better than the best suite in Hotel du vin which we used on the following night.
My boyfriend and i stayed here in April for a family wedding. Our whole experience of this hotel was first class. From the moment we arrived when our luggage was taken to our room to the delicious breakfast the following morning was flawless. The staff were very friendly too.
The rooms were beautiful and the bed was massive and very comfortable.
As we only stayed one night we did not have much opportunity to venture around the grounds but from what we saw it was lovely - particularly for golfers.
This hotel is top class and i would return to it in a minute!
Outstanding...........moved me to write for the first time
We stayed at the hotel for our friends' joint birthday party. It far exceeded our expectations. We are frequent hotel users plus my husband is a director of a leisure based company and I have been involved with Staff training as a wine tutor. Our standards are therefore exacting.The hotel and grounds are beautiful. The public rooms are friendly and you feel comfortable and at ease where ever you decide to settle whether it be the bar, conservatory or cosy library.The bedrooms are spacious and well appointed and everywhere is spotless and well maintained. Our meal at the newly refurbished restaurant was superb and the yokshire tapas are not to be missed . But what stands out here are the Staff; they are the friendliest most highly motivated bunch of people I have met in a long time. Everyone had a smile !! When we arrived, the receptionist greeted my friend with "Happy Birthday" as we had mentioned the reason for our stay when booking. The weekend we stayed, the hotel was fully booked and had a wedding so all the Staff were busy but the Staff go out of their way to make you feel that you are a special guest and it works. My husband stayed on an extra night and felt that for a lone business travellor, this was one of the most relaxing and friendly places he had stayed. I would highly recommend Rudding Park....... you will not be disappointed.
Attended a Wedding Reception at Rudding Park on 11 February and stayed overnight. Have to say that everything was so well organised and our every wish catered for. Well done to everyone involved.
I booked to stay here with my wife for her birthday as a treat. I got a package via expedia for 185 inc D,B & B. I emailed them ahead of our stay to arrange flowers in the room for my wife and let them know it was her birthday. We arrived in the rain to be greeted by a porter with a brolly to escort us in! When there my wife was greeted by the duty manager whom I emailed who wished her happy birthday and upgraded our room to a full suite for no extra charge! They had also put half bottle of champs on ice and box of chocs in room gratis. Flowers were lovely, as was the suite!(Aketon suite). Service throughout was impeccable even down to the hand delivered weather forecast for the next day. Food was inspired without being pretentious and as part of our package represented excellent value. You could choose anything from menu no matter how expensive. I realise the reason we got an upgrade was that it was a monday night and it was empty but they did not have to upgrade us. Even without that we would have left fully satisfied feeling we got excellent value with a firm intention to return again. This hotel will not let you down.
This is the best hotel in Yorkshire
If you need to stay in Yorkshire, particularly if you need to stay near Harrogate, don't look any further! The hotel is a most impressive and attractive building with lovely patios and grounds, and you will find that everything about it is of the highest standard. I have known the hotel for some years and under the guidance of their excellent manager, it just goes from strength to strength.
We stayed for a night in August. We were greeted in the car park by a most attentive porter, and then by the friendly reception staff. Our bedroom was large and very well furnished in contemporary style with a nicely appointed bathroom. It was good to see a high standard of toiletries provided - Molton & Brown. Another excellent touch - sound from the TV/media centre is piped into the bathroom.
In the evening, after an aperitif in the bar area, we moved to the attractive restaurant, where our dinner was superb, chosen from a wide ranging menu, and could not be faulted. After dinner we moved to the library/lounge for a board game and a nightcap - a most welcoming room, warmly furnished with deep armchairs, fire place and lots of bookshelves. Service was friendly and attentive throughout. Breakfast the next morning was excellent - a very wide variety of foods on offer at a buffet table with an enticing menu of cooked dishes, all in all more than sufficient to satisfy anyone whatever kind of breakfast you might prefer. Our cooked selection was delicious and well presented. It's the best hotel breakfast I have had in the UK!
Do stay in this hotel, you will be delighted! It really is "second to none" as their website proclaims!
Wonderful gem of a hotel
At last I have found a hotel where the claims about excellent service are actually true. We booked a golf break direct with the hotel at £320 for 2 nights dinner, bed and breakfast and 2 rounds of golf. We arrived at the front door and the porter was immediately with us carrying all bags direct to our room. He called our name to the receptionist as he carried the bags in, so that when I reached reception, she had already identified our booking and was preparing the key. The executive room was beautifully furnished with a huge bed, table, chairs and sofa and Molton Brown toiletries and bathrobes in the bathroom. The rooms have a state of the art entertainment system with internet access, cds and dvds available which unfortunately was not working during our stay. In the evening when the staff came to turn down our beds we were presented with gifts - a bottle of water, a Lindt chocolate rabbit (it was Easter) and a wooden back massage tool. Complimentary newspapers were delivered in the morning. Dinner was good, although the younger members of staff were the only ones we would criticise - a steak ordered without mushrooms arrived with mushrooms. A sticky toffee pudding ordered with ice-cream arrived without ice cream - minor blemishes which could not spoil the overall experience, the head waiter being effortlessly attentive. Complimentary canapes and a selection of delicious breads were provided while the main meals were being prepared. At the golf club, the same high standard of friendliness, efficiency and the feeling that you are their only customer. A beautiful but long golf course will challenge all standards of golfer. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable experience with exceptionally high standards the norm.
Simply the Best - better than all the rest!
My husband and I together friends have just returned from a fantastic weekend at the Rudding Park Hotel. New Year's Eve was brilliant and from the moment we arrived in the hotel car park until the moment we left we could not fault this wonderful hotel. The food and service were second to none and the bedrooms are beautiful. The hotel is set in a 300 acre country park complete with golf course. We can't wait to return!

We said goodbye to Lindsay, Ian, Jack and Mattie in Rugby and headed off to Denby Dale via a slightly circuitous route taking in Wollaton Hall and Chatsworth House.
Jen, Tom, Ellie and Sophie gave us a warm village welcome. We spent the next day getting a taste of village life as we explored lovely Denby Dale - we visited the local church display of the twelve days of Christmas and a fair at the nursery school.

... the Audi station wagon and it's the bomb. Best cat I have ever driven. The drive to leeds wasn't too strenuous and we got here at about 2.30pm. Just about sunset in this neck of the woods. Dinner in an old pub tonight and then off to Edinburgh tomorrow which should take about three ...
Quite day in York with everyone else now gone. My dorm now is just myself and another girl who keeps to herself. It's boring without other people. Went for a walk around town and found the markets and disney store then headed over to see the Clifford Tower and the York museum. Not a very full on day, just a quite one plodding along before heading up to ...
... haddock and chips ! Strange when there was posh starters, silver service and ironed linen !
Anyway the meal, food and presentation was amazing - including a very nice bottle of rosť wine.
Now the strange costings. By eating in the A la carte instead of the buffet they knock off £33 off the bill, due to our pre-paid tickets. However due to a special spring menu (2 courses for £15 each) our bill came to £30 plus drinks. So they knocked the ...
