My husband and I were treating ourselves to a weekend break from our delightful but exhausting 2 1/2 year old! Friends had recommended Rockliffe Hall and we were not disappointed. At check in we were greeted by Jim, head concierge who took our bags and parked our car. Bags delivered to our room and a full explanation of the facilities and mod cons in our room left us feeling that this was going to be a great break. Jim was fantastic throughout and helpful whenever we needed him. This goes for the rest of the staff - helpful, unobtrusive, achieving just the right atmosphere. I was afraid that being a 5 star hotel we would be made to feel less than worthy of being there but nothing could have been further than the truth. We ate in the orangery on our first night, which was superb and an experience I will not forget and in the club house on our second night, again great food and atmosphere. The spa is amazing and my hubby enjoyed the golf range and practice area. Breakfast was another highlight and we can particularly recommend the smoked haddock, poached eggs with hollandaise sauce and also the porridge is the best I have ever tasted. All in all a fantastic break worth every penny (even the £12 cocktail!).
