AA Hotel Inspector confirms high standards

External accreditations are a great way to establish just how good, or otherwise the facilities and service standards are at any business. In the hotel industry AA awards are a great barometer, and the management & staff at Ringwood are delighted with the following AA report summary.


" The Ringwood Hall Hotel retains its Three Star classification and sees its  AA merit score held at a very fine 86%. Overall, this was a positive visit to a well-run operation. 

Hospitality was warm and friendly with very good guest interaction. Services were consistent with expectations, housekeeping was diligent across the operation, while the output of the kitchen was generally very good, where a choice of menus meets the needs of the hotel`s varied clientele. 

Physically the accommodation is tidy well-maintained and very good in quality. The public areas also have a good depth, are versatile and are ideal for both business and leisure markets. 

Parking, grounds, leisure and events facilities also impress"


Ringwood Hall Hotel is proud that their AA rating places the hotel in the top 10% of all AA rated hotels, which is great news for bridal couples who are looking to find that that special quality venue for their wedding day

Summer garden marquee

The summer is here and our summer garden marquee has been for 3 months!


The marquee, set it our beautiful hotel grounds is a truly unique location and setting for your summer wedding. Available for bookings between May and September this semi permanent structure consists of  a reception room containing a bar and the dining room that can hold up to 120 guests and has it's own carpeted wooden based floor. This isn't a marquee from a garden fete but a truly great setting for your special day
However, as beautiful as the inside of the marquee is, you cannot doubt the unique setting due to it's position within our hotel grounds. Near enough to the hotel but also somewhat hidden the marquee is also close to the recently discovered and subsequently restored secret garden. The secret garden adds a very special element to the marquee. With its festoon lighting and Victorian gazebo it will be explored and enjoyed by your guests.

Come and view our marquee and discuss your requirements with a member of our team!

Wedding Showcase Monday 21st July

Our next wedding showcase is on Monday, the 21st July

As ever we will be opening the doors to our hotel and inviting prospective couples to come and see both the hotel and the grounds in all their splendour. The event will run between 2pm & 8pm and is completely free to anyone who wants to meet ourselves as well as a handpick group of wedding suppliers. The events are always well received and based on the weather we've been having a great opportunity to enjoy the grounds!
It's always great to get positive feedback and it was also very nice to receive a hand written note recetly when so much of our feedback is given via emails, social media or tripadvisor. Below is a picture of the letter that Mr & Mrs Hartley sent us following the wedding of their daughter. We are delighted to have played such a memorable part in the couple's special day.

If you want to have a day like the Hartley's then why not come and meet us on Monday!
