I took my elderly mother here for a 'significant' birthday (hers not mine), something I had planned for months. I had taken her to Ragdale Hall Health Spa about 12 years ago and I guess we both expected something equally amazing (because it looks it in the brochure...). It's rather run-down and unloved, there's no atmosphere, the grounds are unkempt (good for wildlife however) and the staff seem fairly disinterested. It was such a disappointment given the 'build up', and cost me a lot of money, petrol (200 miles return trip) and I ended up exhausted by the time I'd got my mother back home again next day... When you've looked forward to something for so long, there's a long way to fall!
I complained 'constructively' to the Manager by emailed letter, and after re-emailing I was offered a repeat 'free' trip for 2 - but that's not going to be possible because once again it would mean taking time off, having a long, tiring drive, spending a lot of money on petrol...
To give them credit where credit is due - the evening meal was nice (but nothing spectacular), and my bed (twin room) was comfortable in Room 6.
