I stayed there as part of a group trip organised by my former golf club. We had a great deal including buffet dinner, breakfast, room, 2 rounds of golf and a £10 bar voucher. The hotel itself is nice enough, the rooms are very nice (we stayed in The Village") and cant be faulted apart from to say that the... More

How this place can advertise itself as a spa is beyond me?! We went for a hen party and it was awful, swimming pool dirty and full of kids, Jaccuzzi filthy and had kids in it, barely blows a bubble, (more like a public swimming pool). Sauna and steam room dated, smelly and dirty. Empty cups and coke cans scattered... More

We booked an overnight spa break. Staff on reception were very friendly and helpful. We paid extra for an upgraded room. The room was nice and overlooked the golf course. However, there were no complimentary soft drinks. Mini bar was totally empty! As there were no means of buying any soft drinks in the hotel we had to order room... More

Booking: UQBIVST. I have to say that, having read some atrocious reviews on the internet we made our booking to stay and play at Five Lakes with some trepidation! We stayed at the hotel for the night of 31st August 2014 and played on the links on Sept 1st 2014 which was a fun course that is pretty forgiving and... More

It's huge, the layout of this place covers a large area, the rooms are spread over outer buildings and the main hotel. I stayed in room 413 which was very large and very comfortable , a bathroom as big as I've ever seen, only issue was a balcony without a view. All the staff were very accommodating and helpful with... More

Stayed here for one night as attending a Charity event held in the hotel with my husband. I was greeted with a smile at check in (no queue) and was offered the option of not charging things to my room so no need to check out in the morning. The room I was given was in the hotel and easily... More

I am absolutely disgusted with the rudeness of staff and cleanliness of this 'spa' hotel. Me and 5 friends were supposed to of stayed here for me HEN night but had to leave after just a few hours as we experienced the worst time ever. I really don't know where to start, firstly when I received my confirmation email it... More

I booked in at 6.45pm to be told the restaurant was full and seat wouldn't be available until after 8.15pm or later and perhaps I should consider a meal in the bar if I wanted to eat earlier. I went to the bar and was eventually served and ordered the outrageously priced Luca Burger at £12.45. What arrived was an... More
