There is nothing bad about this establishment. The best hotel that i have stayed in the UK for a while. I stay here every month due to work commitments, and staying at this hotel makes going to Darlington more bearable.

Just returned from a fantastic 3 day break at Rockliffe Hall. Can't praise enough the quality of surroundings, both indoors and outdoors, the amazing food and excellent service. The Prestige meal in The Orangery made for a memorable last night and was well worth the expense. If you are planning a special treat this is the place to go you will not be disappointed!

This is a most luxurious hotel set in beautiful grounds. We totally enjoyed our 3 day stay. We were staying in the Tiplady Lodge which is very close to the Main Hall. The room was very spacious and beautifully furnished, and it was incredibly peaceful with views over the grounds.
The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the hotel and the Spa, and the dinner in The Orangery was a true experience - fantastic food in a great setting.
For a luxurious getaway for a few days, this cannot be beaten - totally to be recommended.

Room Tip: The rooms in Tiplady Lodge are less expensive than in the Main Hotel, but are extremely modern and i...

This hotel is a masterpiece. The rooms are excellently equipped, spacious and luxurious! The beds are duper comfy. The staff cannot be helpful enough. Even a BMW to transport you to the clubhouse the grounds are beautiful too.

The spa is a wonderful treat. Massages were dreamy.

All in all, a delight. Well done Rockliffe Hall.

Room Tip: Ask for room with balcony. Excellent knew of golf course

I have dined at The Orangery by Kenny Atkinson, Rockcliffe Hall several times and it has always exceeded my expectations. Impeccable service and presentation, attentive and knowledgeable staff and sommelier. I would recommend starting with a champagne or cocktail in the bar. I have ordered three courses from the Taste of the Market and Prestige menus. In terms of appetisers the Venisona and hand dived Scallops were divine, not huge portions but perfect due to the 'amouse bouche' between courses. For main course the halibut, chicken and beef fillet dishes were all cooked to perfection with complementary vegetable side dishes. For dessert the cheese trolley is fabulous and has more choice than you can dream of! My favourite dessert I cannot remember the name of although it was a panna cotta I believe...I have also had a glass of wine and antipasti in the brasserie, sitting on the balcony over looking the golf course which was a wonderful experience too. Rockcliffe Hall is one of my favourite places right now! I have also attended a taster session at the spa- knowledegeable staff and beautiful design... very relaxing...

Room Tip: I havent stayed over night although I have visited the rooms during a wedding fayre and they are all...
