|The elegant bay windowed drawing room, with Adam fireplace, is renowned for its collection of Russell Flint water colours which adorn the walls. Soft furnishings in pastel shades, comfy sofas and armchairs and glowing lamps make this a relaxing place to curl up in front of the fire with a book, or sample afternoon tea with Rufflets famous home baking.|
Bar Lunches are served daily in the brasserie style Music Room Bar & Library, both with magnificent views of the immaculate gardens. In the evening the mood changes and the Bar becomes the place to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail whilst ordering dinner from the Terrace Restaurant a la carte menu. After dinner you must sample some of the 100 malt whiskies on offer.
The Terrace Restaurant has been awarded two AA rosettes for the past eight years, and is one of the most popular places to dine in the local area.
Rufflets has 24 individually styled and tastefully decorated bedrooms, including two suites. Unlike most of the larger chain hotels, our rooms are different shapes and sizes which adds to their individual character and distinct charm.
Rufflets' ten acre gardens are a joy to behold and are one of the hotel's greatest assets. The gardens have won many national awards over the years, including the UK Benson & Hedges Hotel garden of the year. Rufflets has also participated in Scotland's Gardens Scheme, where gardens are open to the public on specific days during the year.
Rufflets head gardener, Phil, has been lovingly tending to the gardens, planning stunning, colourful borders and supplying the hotel with freshly cut flowers, fruits, vegetables and herbs throughout the season, in addition to keeping the acres of grass and formal hedges neatly trimmed.
Rufflets gardens are much sought after for wedding photography, as the romantic streams, bridges and mature trees provide an ideal backdrop for memorable photographs. The terrace and lower garden is also licensed for civil marriage ceremonies.
The secluded setting, woodland and 1.5 acre field, make Rufflets an ideal venue for outdoor sporting activities and team building events, ideal for corporate use.
The sunny, south facing terrace is popular during summer months, where Afternoon Tea, alfresco lunch and drinks are served under Laurent Perrier umbrellas.
