We booked a Sunday lunch with friends at No 19. The Sunday lunch was disappointing. Gristly, poorly cooked meat and over cooked vegetables. Just nasty! The whole place is dirty. The floors are filthy. The tables are sticky. The sofa needed hoovering. All very grubby. If the aim is to achieve the ambiance of an unfriendly working men's club then... More

Came for a meal only to be treated like a 3rd class citizen because I was not a golf club member or a "celebrity" Food was overpriced and over pretentious and service was rude and slow. The gardens and decor etc however are nice NEVER AGAIN

I visited The Close House Hotel this weekend with my family. The facilities, rooms, golf courses & club house were all excellent. Quite obviously a lot of thought has gone into the whole establishment. What was even more pleasing was the quality & attitude of all the staff. Without exception, everyone was so friendly, helpful & professional. I am fortunate... More

After arriving to a pleasant view and a very very large room for a Xmas break that was advertised to be something special. We were more than disappointed that we had to walk in the cold if we wanted any food or drink. They were serving no drinks in the hotel bar late on Xmas eve so we had to... More
