“Go large and love it !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2006

Stayed on a Saturday night and took occupancy of The Dukes Room which is the largest room in the hotel. Compared to the smaller rooms in the hotel this room is undoubtedly worth the extra outlay.

The bedroom itself is on the first floor and can only be described as massive by UK Hotel room standards, with ample storage space and great views of the lawns that surround the property.
Beautiful furniture (including a good sized dining table which was put to good use for the breakfast served next morning in the room) complement the four poster bed and the room is decorated in light neutral colours. Other services include a flat screen TV and broadband internet access.

The equally huge bathroom is accessed through an internal side corridor and down some steps, as you enter the bathroom you are struck by the sheer size of the room which is adorned with mirrors and a large bathtub in the centre of the room. Complimentary Molton Brown toiletries are supplied.

The food at the hotel was fantastic and incredibly good value, as was the wine list with plenty to choose from what would appear an extensice cellar.

The property itself has many areas to chill out in, with a great hall, a library and other smaller ante rooms to sneak away to. On departure we viewed "the oak room" bedroom, and whilst impressive we felt was slightly smaller and darker than the Dukes Room in which we resided.

And most importantly the staff attitude towards us was excellent.

I would thoroughly recommmend staying here, but you must take The Dukes Room - you wont regret it !!

  • Liked — The bedroom was superb, and the food was excellent quality and value
  • Disliked — Nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — The Dukes Room is the best bedroom in the hotel.

On driving through the gates to Rushton you are immediate transported to a wonderful world of a bygone era and you can leave all your troublkes behind. the building a grade 1 listed property where I was told the gunpowder plot was hatched has been lovingly restored and yet has retained all the history of a bygone time. At the centre of the housae is a wonderful courtyard and a great place for dinks or afternoon tea.

I stayed in one of the newer more modern stable wing rooms which was extremely comfortable and yet had many additional comforts that showed that thought had gone into preparing the room and the housekeeping was exemplary. It was a little difficult at first to learn the geograpohy of the house but a combination of helpful staff and perseverence insured that I was not lost for long! Dinner was served in a wood panelled diningroom and the desserts were a real treat.

Although the house is in wornderful open grounds when the bplanned Spa is copmplete it will be a great weekendf getaway at the moment activities are restricted to walking and tennis

  • Liked — Wonderful historic building

From the outside this privately owned hotel looks amazing, just like an English Stately Home. The public areas and grounds are also stunning and a spa is being built. Sadly, that is as good as it gets.

Arrived at the hotel at 4pm in the rain with our baby and no one to meet us or our baggage. Not the best start.

Just as we got to the room and after taking a lift to the second floor with the owner we were told "oh there is no bath in the bathroom only a shower". Since they had put a cot in the room and babies need bathing, why had we been given the room?

However, the first big let down was the room. It was in the attic and was pokey, the bed even smaller and the shower did not work properly. Further, there was dirt on the ceilings and paint was flaking off the walls. Great for £160 a night eh?

As we had to go out immediatly upon arrival and did not return until late all these faults were not apparent. However, I pointed them all out next morning to the duty manager who seemed to listen very carefully to my concern and apologised and said he would see what he could do.

However, he then did absolutely nothing about my complaints and at check out I was presented with a full bill and no explanation. For some reason the ever so apologetic Manager was not available and I raised my concerns with the check out staff and got nowhere. Very poor!

On the plus side we had a great breakfast and I am told the non attic rooms are good. Apparantly, the attic rooms are awaiting refurbishment but again no one tells you this when you book and no allowance is made in the price.

Advice - This Hotel is trying to be very special and charges prices to match. It has potential. The Spa when built looks as if it will be very good. However, the attitude of the staff to customer service stinks and the attic rooms are not even of 2 star standard and grossly overpriced.

If you must stay here spend the extra money and don't stay in the attic rooms. (They don't tell you it is an attic room when you book.)

To the management - go and work in a Four Seasons for a bit and learn how luxury hotels should respect and treat their customers. Sadly,, despite the fact that this is a beautiful building and setting and we often need to stay in the area we won't be coming back in a hurry.

We have recently visited Rushton Hall Hotel for Sunday lunch and admittedly a good look around. Last time we were there was when the building was used as a school for the blind.
No expense has been spared in the renovations and refurbishment of this beautiful builiding. Reeks of history (although no detailed historical anecdotes or leaflets could be found in the hotel which was a shame as this is Tresham, Catesby country, area of the Gunpowder Plot.)

Staff were all smart, efficient, polite and friendly without being in your face. Drinks in the garden courtyard under the sun umberellas perfect. Three course lunch expertly cooked, best roast beef I had in years cooked to perfection.
Coffee and petit fours in the great hall - doze after reading the Sunday newspapers walk around the grounds and looking forward to our next visit in the winter.
Oak panelled rooms and large roaring log fires heavy brocade curtains
a definite place for all seasons.
Very impressed.
