Media Release: Rockliffe Hall business meetings, with a premier touch

ROCKLIFFE Hall is continuing to cement its position as one of the North East’s premier facilities for meetings, incentives, conferencing and exhibitions (MICE) after a year of highly-esteemed award wins, as well as receiving the prestigious AA five star status.

The luxury hotel, golf and spa resort is already an established venue for business meetings and events with an internationally-renowned reputation.

With capabilities of accommodating meetings from two to 250 delegates, the resort offers a quiet, picturesque environment for corporate events.

Following on from the success so far, the resort is now opening a new meeting venue option. The Gatehouse offers luxury stand alone facilities in the grounds of the resort.

Offering complete privacy with two large hexagonal meeting rooms, two further break out rooms, a spacious hospitality area with access to your own private garden for al fresco delegate dining, The Gatehouse is ideal for meetings for up to 16 people.

Wendy Benson, sales and marketing director at Rockliffe Hall, explained: “Due to the increasing demand for meeting rooms, we have now allocated an exclusive house within the grounds, The Gatehouse, providing an individually-tailored service in the most private of settings for smaller groups.

Today’s sophisticated business people expect more than your average meeting or conference and Rockliffe Hall is proud to offer an outstanding choice of activities both on and off site including golf, fishing, clay pigeon shooting, four-wheel driving adventures or even white water rafting.

Wendy continued: “Rockliffe Hall is perfectly situated in picturesque countryside, close to many top notch activity choices, so blending business with leisure is uncomplicated.

“The car racing at Croft International Circuit is a popular choice which can really add an exciting extra dimension to a business meeting.

“While the luxury hotel resort is popular with local businesses, large and small, it has also attracted many high profile and influential visitors from around the world.

“The Premier League recently hosted their summer summit at the beautiful venue with top club executives, following on from last year’s visit from FIFA officials in the region to inspect its credentials as part of the England World Cup 2018 bid.”

Wendy explained: “The events this year have been incredible; it is another step that we have taken to prove our credentials both in the UK and North East as a leading golf, spa, hotel and business venue.

We have had esteemed guests including The Bentley Drivers Club tour, involving 60 of the rarest Bentleys from around the world, the tour having started at the prestigious Savoy hotel in London.

In addition to this, we played host to the Trilby Tour, the largest televised amateur golf event which will be screened on Sky Sports in late August.

“Providing five-star service and facilities is something that the resort has been recognised for, recently picking up the prestigious Conde Nast MICE award (2011) as well as winning multiple North East awards.

The resort has also won the Business Tourism in the North East award, two silver awards for Outstanding Customer Service and Taste of the North East for the Kenny Atkinson at the Orangery restaurant.”

The venue is currently offering an introductory rate for all new bookings placed in August and September where you can hold your business meeting at Rockliffe with Day Delegate rates starting from as little as £45 per person.
