“Fantastic Spa Day with Friends :)”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

I visited Rookery Manor Spa with a group of friends to celebrate a Birthday!
We booked a spa day that included the spa, lunch and a treatment. When we arrived we were shown around the spa and given a locker with a towel and robe. We had all chosen slightly different treatments, I had a pedicure which was done in a Massaging Chair, which was a lot more comfortable than a traditional pedicure!
We spent most of our Day in the Outdoor Hot Tub which was lovely in the sun!!

I would defiantly recommend as the Staff were fantastic, Facilities Brilliant and Treatments sooo Relaxing :)

Definatly 5 Stars *****

Cant wait to revisit again!!

At first this was a shock. Hard by the M5 built on a former pig farm but this really really grew on us. Don't be shocked by the fact that this place looks as if it is a Channel 4 wedding venue for chavs and the traffic sound is relentless (but the double glazing very good so you don't hear it inside). The new restaurant manager, Murat, is excellent and has brought in great local produce and so the food is now superb (and I am used to fine dining, Claridges etc). The spa was professional and all staff very friendly ( we were given a full day, despite being late). I even forgave the fact there was no hot water in our room because everything else was so good. We will be going again and my wife is one of the pickiest people around.

Booked a small double room via laterooms, therefore price was reasonable, would not pay full amount. Hotel is slightly out of town, nearest pub cost £11.50 in taxi each way. There is a bistro on site but this is not for a quick meal and is expensive and indulgent. The room was ok, clean and warm. Gardens are lovely. The restaurant is not usual type and seems more of a wedding reception room ! However breakfast Was ok but be warned don't arrive late as by 9.45am all pastries are gone. Overall the experience is more of a wedding venue, lucky for us there was no wedding but think it would be noisy if there had been so may be worth checking when booking!
Spa is small but nice, staff can be a little rude !

We went to Rookery for dinner, B&B and a spa day booked through Spabreaks.com, we upgraded the 30 minute treatments to an hour before arriving. The hotel isn't much to look at as you arrive, reception feels like a conservatory showroom but the receptionist was lovely. We stayed in a 4 poster suite which was beautiful; comfy bed, bathrobes, beautiful furniture, massive jacuzzi bath, big shower, loads of fluffy towels, just amazing, looking out onto a delightful and interesting garden. Unfortunately, if you went into the garden or opened the windows, the noise of the M5 was so loud we couldn't relax in it. We had a drink in the bar before dinner, charming barman, nice wine list, the bar/restaurant was a bit cavernous but nicely done (the decor felt a bit like the night after a wedding). We were shown to our table and, well it just smelt a bit vomity. We asked to move and the next table was fine. Dinner was delicious. After hardly sleeping because of the motorway noise we went to breakfast; full English and continental, really tasty, nice staff. We went to the spa; lovely ladies took our lunch order and showed us around. Good things: the massages we both had were amazing, the staff are really nice, the indoor pool was clean and warm, the hot tub outside was lovely, changing rooms clean and well equipped (GHDs etc), plenty of room to flop around, lots of magazines. Bad things: the place is clearly newly built so while you're having a massage or trying to sleep in the cosy dark sleepy lounge, you can hear everything: the hairdryer, people talking, doors banging, squeaky flip-flops. Lunch was tasty (chicken ceasar salad), but in the same restaurant shared with a bunch of men on a conference. My husband was terribly embarrassed sat there in his robe! Some great things, some not great things. I'd be massively disappointed if we'd paid full price, as it was, we had a really good romantic break.

Room Tip: Our 4 poster suite was simply lovely.

We went on a voucher for a 6 course meal. Tried to review in restaurant section but only restaurant they say they have is Truffles which is now closed and we ate in Iris restaurant.
The restaurant is a barn of a room with no charm and dodgy décor. A grand- white piano that played tinned musak, which was like a dripping tap- elevator music, but lifts take minutes only, this lasted much longer with Xmas and New year tunes too!

To the food, canapes okay, but I swear the tiny goats cheese and onion tart is from the same supplier as M&S, a stuffed baby tomato and asparagus wrapped in Parma ham- okay, but not great- just safe

Next a shot glass of hot tomato ,basil soup with croutons, hot soup, which by time cool enough , shop bought croutons had dissolved.

Scallop, belly pork and asparagus- nice but world not set on fire.

4th course the most enormous plate of lamb, roast potatoes, roasted veg and pots turned up, a Sunday lunch size and this was a taster menu. Lamb three pieces with all the veg, was a bit like a bad carvery, tough and basically tasteless.
When we mentioned to waitress on a taster menu the size of lamb was daunting, she said " I shouldn't complain the size might be smaller next time"- duh- yes that's what we were saying and why should we not share our feedback.

Next course a palate cleanser, blood orange sorbert- nice- lastly Eton mess, bought/ sweet meringue.

All in all glad I did not buy at full price as totally underwhelming-one good thing male waiter was accommodating and swapped our Bellinis as part of price for other drinks. Thank you for that.

Would not go again.

Room Tip: Did not stay in any rooms as just dined

Beautiful place, fabulous grounds and great food. We stayed in "leather" room which was like a little cottage and suited us (a couple and five year old) perfectly. We had a Groupon deal which included evening meal and was very good value, although the al a carte menu was a bit pricey.

we had a overnight stay at rookery manor, they had only 1 double room avalible which was room 7 - copper.
the room had slugs crawling in out bedroom carpet,the one bedside cabinet lamp was broken and the spot light by the front door was out , this ment that corner was very dark.
we where unaware there was 2 functions on in the evening when we arrived and was told if we would like to use the bar we would have to walk through a private function room, in the middle of there dinner and the to sit on the settees or bar stools. we really felt uncomfortable and that we were intruding on the private function.
when we paid our bill the next morning we were not asked how our stay was or did we enjoy or evening .
overall we were very disapointed with our stay.
