Stayed at the Rookery Hall for three nights on a half board basis. The place is really nice and well kept. After a 4 hour or so drive, we booked in with no problem and we were shown to our room. Room 106 is in the 'basement' of an extension attached. A nice room, but nothing special considering the rate charged! To be truthful, we expected better and have had better in less 'glamorous' hotels! We had a lunch in the garden thanks to the nice weather. Again, nothing special and overpriced! The food at dinner every night was excellent, but the drink is very expensive and, due to the deal we were on, there were supplements on certain courses which were, again, a bit pricey! We don't normally complain on prices, but Hand Picked need to look at their prices, especially wine!
I will give the barman Chris high praise for his service, top service and running about making drinks for all at the bar! The last dinner we had is reflected on our service score. We had our starter and main courses served to us in the space of just over an hour. We were asked for the desert menu, which we waited ten minutes on. Then, after half an hour, we left after being completely ignored by staff for our order!
Overall, the Rookery is a nice place, but nothing really special.
