Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Manchester, United Kingdom21 contributions9 helpful votes
The hotel is nice and the spa was really good, although £50 per person for 2 hours is a bit steep. The room was nice. The evening meal started really well with good service, and the food was really good. However, when we finished our main it all went downhill. Nobody came to our table for at least 20 minutes and eventually we had to put our hand up to try and get a waiter. Then eventually they took our plates away and gave us a dessert menu. But then nobody came to take our order so again had to flag someone down. After dessert, the same again, flagging someone down to get a receipt. After a while of having a receipt we gave up waiting for someone to give the signed receipt to so go up and gave it to someone. The food came to £50pp, quite a lot so the service really should be better. The breakfast in the morning was brilliant. When we left and a 6.5% service charge was added to the entire bill which is ludicrous. We’d already paid £350 for a one night stay, and this service charge was never mentioned. Yes they say it’s optional, but are you really going to ask them to remove it in front of 4 members of staff and other members of the public? I’ve seen the hotel says the service charge is so they can pay their staff for the great work they do… the price we pay should cover that, if we want to tip for a great job that should be our choice. Leaves a sour taste in the mouth.

Hotel's Favourite
We had an exceptional stay at rudding park. The room was perfect and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. They went above and beyond. The food was excellent. We tried both restaurants. The tasting menu at horto was fabulous. We also had a spa treatment which was excellent. We have decided to make a trip annually as it was so good and we don’t think we will find better for what we want need anywhere else in the uk. Can’t wait to go back.

Nice hotel however the breakfast was not great value for the £22 cost - no toast offered, the full English with only a single sausage and a not terribly expansive continental buffet. Additionally drinks aren’t included so had to pay another £6.50 for a pot of coffee. This isn’t shown on the menu so I’d rashly presumed tea/coffee was included like every other hotel breakfast I’ve ever had.

I have been to Rudding Park many times. This time was my friend’s birthday and they made such a fuss of her, she was delighted. The experience was lovely as always from the lovely lunch, the Spa, dinner and the gorgeous rooms. I will be back soon. The staff are so friendly and welcoming it is like visiting an old friend.

Dear 412limh Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are thrilled to hear that you continue to enjoy each stay with us at Rudding Park. We were saddened however, to hear that you have not been fortunate so far, to be given an upgrade on your room on arrival. Unfortunately there is no ‘criteria’ but is dependent on how busy the hotel. We look forward to welcoming you back to Rudding Park in the future and sincerely hope you will be fortunate next time. Kind regards The Rudding Park Team

I can’t commend more the service provided to myself & my daughter Ella during our recent stay. This was by Jack who is based in reception. From the minute he saw & welcomed us to Rudding Park, assisted us to our room & went out of his way to be helpful. Jack always said hello when we saw him in the hotel & asked how our stay was & if he could help. On the day of our departure Jack became aware that there had been a miscommunication with a lady on the reception, the day before. This was to do with my special birthday not being acknowledged. During check out Jack was there with a big smile, a bottle of Prosecco & a gift bag with some thoughtful gifts in. Jack then insisted on assisting us with our cases & bags to my car. We were very grateful for this as well. I have been totally overwhelmed & wanted to highlight his positive actions throughout our stay to yourselves. I’m unsure how you can share this but hope he receives this positive feedback & receives acknowledgment of our sincere gratitude.

We stayed here last night for a birthday treat my partner organised for me. What a beautiful place! Our room was upgraded on arrival and the Spa experience was amazing. We had dinner and breakfast and can highly recommend it. The staff were lovely and friendly.. Can I please give a special mention to Peter who was at the entrance when we arrived and left.. what an absolute super star he is.. we loved his personality and he really did make us smile. He’s a credit to you! Please pass on our thanks! We would definitely visit again! X

My friend & I went on an overnight spa break as a birthday treat. The whole experience from being welcomed at reception to checking out for our spa treatment was wonderful. The hotel and spa are beautiful and the staff were exceptional. A special mention to Freya in the Clocktower for looking after us at dinner and to Penny in the spa for my blissful back massage & mini facial. Will be booking again for our birthdays despite it snowing both times we've been!

Needed an escape and Rudding was the perfect place to go. Not many places know how to make solo guests feel valued, but they do here. Lovely welcome at reception and Matthew D made the arrival and whole time I was there relaxing and special with all questions answered and some lovely suggestions and special touches for my stay. The spa in the evening was lovely, very quiet and relaxing. Food for evening and breakfast was excellent. Will definitely be back again soon.
