Pink Champagne Afternoon Tea - a real disappointment. Service was with a smile but frightfully unprofessional! Tea and coffee arrived 20 mins before the eateries came, meaning I had finished my coffee whilst my partners tea had turned luke warm. Didn't cross the minds of the waitresses to refill our cups! Sandwiches were tasteless (bread to thick and dry with... More

We stayed at this hotel from 7th Nov - 9th Nov as part of the 'Old Course Occasions' Package. This was our second time visiting as were so impressed with it last time. I'm glad to say it surpassed our expectations this time, again. We stayed in the fairway suite and were greeted with champagne and a rose petal turn... More

My wife and I returned to OCH for a short break with friends. It was faultless. From the moment we arrived, Melissa at reception welcomed us with courtesy, professionalism, a warm smile and a glass of Prosecco. For the rest of our stay, every member of staff treated us in exactly the same way (not always with Prosecco though!!). St... More

My friend and I have recently returned from a fantastic stay at the Old Course Hotel. From the moment we arrived we were spoilt. The room was lovely and there was a lovely surprise for us on our return from the spa - a bottle of Champagne and birthday cards - what a lovely touch. We had treatments in the... More

A group of us spent the weekend at the hotel. From start to finish, it was excellent. The staff are very efficient and friendly. Breakfast was excellent, the Road Hole bar has a great view over the course. Sadly my wife became ill, so missed out on the spa and some of the dining in the hotel. In all, a... More

My wife and I have just spent two nights to celebrate our Golden wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived all of the staff were so friendly, charming and easy to relate to. We had booked a golf view room but we were absolutely blown away when we were escorted to a superior suite (room 240). The décor in the... More

Another fantastic stay at the Old Course Hotel after a similar experience last year. 2 nights, 2 great breakfasts, 2 sets of lounging around in the spa and the rooftop hot-tub. This visit also included a wee trip to the Sands Grill for dinner which was excellent. Drinks in the Road Hole Bar in the evening are ridiculously civilised too... More

Even though some hotels claim to be 5 star I always think the real test is how the staff treat the guests. In this respect I can assure you that our experience of the staff at the Old Course was faultless. From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave they get the right balance with a friendly and... More

We have just spent a lovely weekend at this fantastic hotel. The staff were so helpful and pleasant and the hotel itself is fantastic. As it was my husband's "special birthday" treat we were offered an upgrade which was a lovely surprise. They also gave us a complimentary bottle of Prosecco and chocolates after dinner. All in all a superb... More

Can honestly say this was one of the nicest hotel experiences we have ever had! Everything about the stay was absolutley fabulous, lovely glass of prosecco on arrival, beautiful golf view room with a balcony, cocktails in the bar overlooking the sea! The spa was amazing, and especially loved the rooftop hot tub. Breakfast was also outstanding so much choice... More
