Rockliffe Named No.2 Hotel Golf Resort in UK and Voted Best Hotel in the North East

Rockliffe Hall has been named the number 2 hotel golf resort in the UK, by the country’s leading hoteliers and is also the highest ranking North East hotel to feature in the Hoteliers’ Hotels Top 100

Compiled by leading names in the hotel industry and verified by some of the nation’s preeminent hotel experts, including hotel journalist Fiona Duncan (who recently visited Rockliffe and is now a big fan), Giovanna Grossi and fellow AA hotel inspectors, and senior editors at The Caterer, the full list was revealed at a glittering reception at London’s Ham Yard hotel.

Amanda Afiya, editor of The Caterer, says: “Hoteliers know their industry, its pitfalls and opportunities best, so who better to ask when compiling a list of the top hotels in the UK? We’re lucky to have so many wonderful hotels across UK and excited to be launching this list. There are, of course, many ways of ranking and evaluating hotels, but there’s nothing quite as special as peer-group recognition.”

Bronwyn de Cholewa, director for hotels at Sky, said: “These awards recognise the exceptional level of detail that goes in to ensuring every guest has a perfect stay. Congratulations to all of you that have been included in the Hoteliers Hotels Top 100 and to those who voted to create this most definitive list of the UK’s greatest hotels”.

Eamonn Elliott, Chief Executive at Rockliffe Hall, says: “We are thrilled to feature in this prestigious list. To be the highest ranking hotel in the North East and the second best hotel golf resort in the country, only behind Gleneagles, is a fabulous achievement for Rockliffe and everyone who works here.”
