Rudloe Arms
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Corsham
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Limited menu to choose from but the food was excellent and the service from David, the GM, and his team was discrete and first class. Good wine list and loved the quirky water jug. Breakfast good and a chef that can cook eggs properly!

The building is very impressive but is looking a bit tired behind the scenes, which is more noticeable in the bedrooms. This was in the main house, not been in the annexe. Clearly the customer facing areas have been designed by Marco as there are pictures of him everywhere just in case you missed the fact that his 'brand' is fronting the Hotel.

An attempt has been made to make the place more accessible to people by renaming it Rudloe Arms rather than Rudloe Hall. Curious mix as the dining room is what you would expect in a good Hotel but the bar area is more like a pub than Hotel with table football and pool table. Not to everyone's taste and a bit out of character against the backdrop of such an impressive building. But that's my personal opinion.

We stayed 2 nights as we were doing a photoshoot using the function room as a studio and the grounds. The events team were very amenable to having us working there for nearly 8 hours and looked after our needs seamlessly with little intrusion.

Room Tip: Rooms in main house are traditional style. Four poster room very spacious with sofa, table and chair...

An interesting property totally ruined by the design taste of the owner Marco Pierre White. The only saving grace is the excellent friendly and helpful staff. The style of the hotel is best described as bizarre especially the bar. With three table football, two pool tables, a bar billiards table and a rocking horse it was almost impossible to get in the room. The rest of the decor in the dining room and breakfast room was obviously designed by somebody who had no understanding of design. The dinner menu choice was limited and could not even be described as pub food. A very poor experience saved from total disaster by the excellent staff.

Room Tip: Book the new wing not the main hotel.

Just spent a lovely weekend at this beautiful hotel. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The food in Marco Pierre White restaurant was super. The menu isn't vast, but plenty to suit all tastes. Our room, 223, was big, very clean and very comfortable. Only a small TV screen but excellent picture. The grounds of the hotel are vast and very well kept. Dinner on our 2nd evening was at the sister hotel, The Pear Tree, and again the food was great and staff super.

Having enjoyed a pleasant stay here last year while attending a Dog show at Bath we decided to book again. The Hotel has undergone huge changes, all of which seem to be for the better. The staff seem a lot happier and more professional, the grounds are lovely and the room we stayed in, which was in the Tree Tops building, was spotlessly clean and welcoming. We really enjoyed our one night stay and wish it could have been longer! Our dog enjoyed himself too! Will definitely return next year . Thank You to Rudloe Hall

We recently stayed having booked through secret escapes for a 2 day break, We found the room to be clean although a little dark. The food we could not fault and even though we had to eat at the sister restaurant The Pear Tree on the second night the food was fantastic.

Would definitely recommend, and if anyone thinks Marco does not visit the hotel he was there both days!!!

The room could do with information about the hotel,

Outside apearance excellent. Reception was dark. Bar was uninviting. It spoilt the effect of the hotel. Food was excellent. Service from staff was also excellent. Very helpfull. Had a meal at sister pub The Pear Tree. The food and service was also excellent there. Trip was booked through Secret Escapes. Fair money for a fair deal.

A lovely setting for a wedding or family affair. We arrived in glorious sunshine and enjoyed a Pimms on the lawn.

The food is very good, a try and tested menu, nothing extravagant or precious - just well source, well cooked food.


There are photographs of Marco Perrie White everywhere and I mean everywhere! His moody portraits lears down at you from the stairwell at reception. Slightly un-nerving and rather self-indulgent!
