Checking in was a nightmare and the owner was rude. Our reservation was "lost" but found out later the hotel was overbooked by 30 rooms. I was overcharged and basically told to take it or leave it. The room was very basic. The key card kept locking us out of the room and we had to repeatedly queue up at... More

I stayed with my sisters on a 2 night break in the hotel. While I found the hotel to be a bit dated and in need of updating I cannot speak highly enough of the lovely, friendly staff who could not do enough to make us feel happy and welcome. I would especially like to mention that 2 of us... More

We arrived & check-in however there seemed to be a bit of confusion about the room I had booked. the gentlemen on reception quickly sorted this & we were given our room key. The room itself was basic, bed were comfy & very clean,... More

I would like to compliment all the staff on a warm reception, friendly smile and helpfulness. . We arrived for breakfast on our first morning, not worried that 2 of the party were vegetarians as there is always enough on breakfast menu's to accommodate the diet. But happened to mention it, the chef asked how many nights was the stay... More

I stayed at the Golf Hotel with my two sisters and we had such a wonderful experience. Yes, I can see why some people might right 'needs updating' and it's true but the positive experience we had completely eliminated any cares or concerns we might have had about the things of lesser importance. Beds were comfortable, rooms were clean, breakfast... More

Could clearly hear DJ. Checked out early and didn't stay for paid for 3rd night. Was told you can't please everyone when I complained. No restaurants... More
