We went to the hotel for a two night break over Easter, a group of 8. The guys were very complimentary of both course played. The room we were allocated was delightful, on the second floor, spacious, very quiet and with a lovely balcony overlooking the course. The hotel itself is rather impersonal and corporate with a decided lack of lounges/ bars. The restaurant is functional, and lacks atmosphere. The food was ok, but nothing special. The second night we eat in the club restaurant, which again lacked atmosphere. However, the carvery was plentiful and very, very tasty. The ladies visited the pool and spa. The pool and sauna facilities were very nice, although a little crowded, but being Easter weekend this was to be expected. The spa was beautiful - however we only found the relaxation room upon our exit and I think it would be better if guests were shown around the spa when they are greeted, as there are some lovely areas to chill out in. The treatments had a half an hour wait in between, which wasn't a problem but a little weird. We have visited many spas in the UK, and this is the first time that this has happened. I would have preferred it if the treatments had been consecutive. Also, no freebie samples - come on the Vale spa, you can do better! A special mention for Richard on reception who was very helpful, and even printed off directions to a local shopping area - thank you! The resort is in a beautiful location, and very convenient for the M4. I would recommend one of the walks around the course, taking in Hensol Castle, very pretty.
