Looking back at the year that’s almost over, we feel it has been pretty successful.

It’s once again been a jam packed year for us with the usual special events, amazing new therapies developed by our experts, some exciting additions to the fitness timetable and lots of bedroom and public area refurbishments.

Back in April we were awarded Best Spa 2014 by Candis Magazine as well as being Highly Commended in the Best Hotel and Spa Experience Category in the Natural Health Magazine Awards. May was also a great month that saw us being recognised by two of the most authoritative organisations in the spa/travel industry. We were awarded a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor for the third year running and also maintained our 5 Bubble Status with the Good Spa Guide.

One of our proudest achievements to date! Next time you join us, check out the beautiful glass bubble trophy in our awards cabinet at the front of the Hall.  

We have also shared a number of amazing milestones with guests and staff alike in 2014. Ann Barnard from Shepshed, celebrated her 100th visit to Ragdale!! Now there’s loyalty for you! To say thank you to Ann, who visited for the day with her friends in October, we treated them all to a Champagne afternoon tea.

Ragdale Long Service 2014Four key members of the team celebrated 100 years service between them. Hugh, Wilson, Hotel Operations Director, Jo Raisen, Guest Liaison Managet, Debbie Lindfield, Head Boutique and Gift Shop Buyer and Judith Brittle of the Treatments Administration Team all celebrated 25 years of employment in 2014. Just think when they first started, the world wide web had just been invented and Ragdale Hall was about half the size it is now! Huge thank you to all of them, Ragdale Hall wouldn’t be what it is today without their input.

So, in a nutshell, that’s 2014! Let’s hope 2015 is just as good, if not better!

    Happy New Year to all at Ragdale. Hope it’s another good one for all of us. See you in February for my first visit of 2015.

  2. Came again in November and we’re invited to a special reception as Pat and I have come on many occasions. New dining room is as some. I couldn’t do the food full justice as I have cancer.

    I would love to come back but it appears to be physically impossible to book to come alone, even single occupancy of a double room. Why is this? You must be losing out on a large part of the spa market by restricting access to those travelling in a pair. I rang at Christmas to book for early January and was told I couldn’t come before April! That seems ridiculous.

      Kylie, I agree re the single occupancy. I have been going to Ragdale for 20 years and there have been a number of times I haven’t been able to book a single room. I prefer to come on my own, so I can totally relax and have some well deserved ‘me time’. I have just booked for my 50th birthday in May and already looking forward to it!
