Stayed for one night on Sat 27th June with 2 friends. Gorgeous hotel set in lovely surroundings. Was impressed by the room with a view (we had a triple room). Courteous and friendly staff and would highly recommend despite it being on a golf course (which we had no interest in!!) The building, room and surrounding were enough for us... More

Went back for a second visit this year. The Spa pool was great.. Lots of loungers around pool and outside which was perfect as the weather was great. Food and drinks brought to you by Spa staff who were friendly and prompt. They also have an aromatherapy room, steam room and sauna as well as jacuzzi . Reception staff were... More

Where do I begin, the reception are awful and inattentive. The breakfast was horrendous and when ordering off the menu items it was even worse. The rooms are quiet dirty considering the price of one night, for the same price you can stay at a friendlier, warmer hotel with nice staff.

Lovely hotel - very relaxing atmosphere with beautiful views out into the golf course watching the budding Rory's McIlroys, The spa is especially recommended. The pool and other areas within the spa are spotless and there are plenty of beds and large cushions to sit and relax on. Waiter service around the pool with everything from cream tea to champagne.... More

Stayed for a weekend of golf and relaxation with my wife and friends of ours. Great hotel, couldn't fault the stay. Nice size room, well equipped, spotless! Ate in the restaurant, excellent choice and quality. Friendly helpful staff. Golf course is in great condition, quite hilly on the back nine, not that long but a fair test for golfers of... More

A friend of mine arranged a golf weekend for 12 of us to stay at this Spa Hotel and play golf on the course next to it. We stayed yesterday and left after breakfast. After our first 18, we checked in which was a bit slow but only because we all checked in at the same time. The room consisted... More

I went for the weekend using my Groupon voucher. But I bought additional services I.e. Massages, dinner reservation, £5 tray service and having the newspaper delivered to our room at an additional cost. What can I say...I was very impressed with the service and staff - thank you! The spa facilities was brilliant and spacious, the executive rooms are beautifully... More

We stayed here for one night on the way to Southampton. The bedroom was one of the nicest I have stayed in for a new hotel. It was big and bright. There were full length windows looking out onto a garden area, with a blind to lower for privacy whilst still keeping the room bright. I loved the tv being... More

Just got back from a long weekend break at this fabulous hotel. We were a party of four and arrived with a little bit of trepidation because the cost seemed to be too good to be true.
