The hotel is in a lovely location with beautiful views. Mu colleague had an enormous room in the main house and I was out in the wilds. This was the only disadvantage, there was no lighting on the way back in the dark - it did not feel very comfortable. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. The food was... More

I stayed in the lakeview rooms. These are set away from the main hotel with own parking. Very clean, spacious and perfect for my stay, with beautiful views. Very tranquil and relaxing. Staff very friendly too.

As far as entrances go, you can't get much better, especially when the sun is shining. A sweeping drive through the golf course leads you to the hotel. We had a warm welcome on arrival which was nice. First impressions were good. We asked at reception about food as we had booked afternoon tea, but we saw the advert for... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and we were very happy to have chosen this property for our stay - we were originally looking at Premier inn hotels for our stay. Our rooms had a lovely view of the golf course and the room itself was warm, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was good too with very good... More

Stayed at the hotel on Feb. 7/14. Expected MacDonald Hotel standards. Paid 97pounds for garden room. When I booked there was a 10 pound voucher offer. Shortly after arrival (when it was too late to go out for food) received a call from front desk advising that there was no food in the restaurant because of an event....subsequently, a second...

The entrance is very promising, driving across the golf course to reach the main building. The hotel itself is a grand old building with newer club house added to one side. Sadly, all the charm of the old house has been removed. Yes the rooms in the main house are big and many have good views across the course, but... More

Fabulous setting! Stayed in one of the pavilion rooms which were large, modern, luxurious and had super views over the river and golf course. Dinner in the restaurant was very good quality, sea bass cooked to perfection. Great value hotel and if you are in to golf ( which I'm not ) one of the very best golf courses around.... More

Four of us enjoyed a really good Sunday lunch here. The menu choices were comprehensive, service was attentive without being oppressive, and overall it was a very nice experience, which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

We stayed here the night before and the night after a friend's wedding. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, the location is just perfect.
