Well, where do I start. Arrived early at around 2pm. One room was ready, one would be another hour. No problem as we were early and I was going golfing with my dad. My sister and mother went back after 3pm to pick up the keys for the 2nd room. Not ready! In fact, it wasn't ready til 5pm. Then... More

Staff all polite & friendly so no issues there. No complaints about the food itself but bugbear was the poor organisation and long delays! Our first round of drinks with our evening meal took about 30 mins to arrive and then mine was forgotten and when it did come was spilt over table by waitress. Ok accidents happen and poor... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights at the end of June. I was a little apprehensive as I have read some poor reviews. I was however pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I found the rooms to be clean and the beds comfortable. On a down side the single beds are so close you could be fooled... More

A good standard of hotel but problems checking in noted as well niggles with staff and poor procedure playing golf later in the evening. Not as good as De Vere / Village resorts elsewhere in the country.

The swimming... More

So I've travelled all around the world staying in various classes of hotels and I can't believe this isn't rated higher. It obviously beats some dingy little hotel on Blackpool front. The facilities are excellent, indoor and outdoor pool, gym with lots of classes, pub, Italian restaurant and a Starbucks. Oh and a beautiful golf course. Every staff member we... More

We were booked into the travel lodge, but seens as they had somehow double booked us we ended up at here. The rooms were great, few hairs in shower and I would of thought the place would have double glazing, but overall was lovely. We didn't use any of the spa or pool facilities as we had nk swimwear etc... More

Well after my review on 28/9/13 re this place never changes, and a local resident of staining near this hotel, I can confirm that " yes, this place never changes". Myself and a friend visited the outside area on a warm sunny evening (15/7/14) for 2 lagers which both were flat at a cost of £7.40, the tables outside are... More
