“Course reasonable but staff appalling”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Whilst the quality of the golf was reasonable, with a variety of different holes, the quality of staff left much to be desired for.This ranged from unfriendly to down right obnoxious and threatening. Customer care was non-existent and we cannot comment on accommodation as we did not stop there. We can't recommend anybody playing here, especially if you are just starting out like some of us were. Suggest you look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Don't go.

A brief reply from the Golf Club:

This was a family of 3 complete beginners, the Mother was taking photographs which at times caused them to stop playing while they posed. They were asked before playing to please let faster groups coming up behind play through, as they were probably going to be a bit slow. On the 5th hole, they had 2 groups waiting behind and obviously had no intention of letting anyone through. The Father was then playing 2 balls and half way down the 6th, they had still not let anyone through and one of the groups waiting behind walked into the Clubhouse because of the delay, their day ruined. A member of staff very politely asked the family to let the group behind them through, as had been mentioned at the start. The Father obviously took offence at being asked to do this and complained later that he had been enjoying his game up to this point. Obviously he was not concerned about the people behind enjoying their game. Can I direct the family to the R&A website about how to behave on the golf course, especially the section on slow play. We do get a lot of people who are new to golf, they can be a bit slow but providing they let other groups through there isn't a problem.

My husband and I stayed here for one night whilst visiting family. We were so pleased to find such a charming place and such lovely owners. You will not be disappointed if you stay here. A lovely relaxing stay and the best breakfast we have had on our many travels, all freshly cooked. They really make you feel special and we will certainly be returning.

Room Tip: Any room would be brilliant.

Decided to stay in the Gloucester area at the last minute, and found this little gem. What a treat. Superb rooms and the breakfast was delicious. Very helpful owners, and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Will be visiting this area a lot over the next two years, this will definitely be my first choice

My wife and I chose to stop at Newent Golf Club for one night in July while we were visiting locally. The golf club was easy to find adjacent to a main road but set back sufficiently to not hear traffic. The room was well proportioned, clean, tidy and well fitted out. The shower room was adequate but lacked quality particularly apparent with the very small wash basin fitted and a strange shower arrangement. A generous supply of tea, coffee etc. was a welcome surprise.
The bed was huge as made from two single beds and comfortable.
As an early riser I enjoyed a pleasant walk round the 9 hole golf course taking in the excellent views from its elevated position before joining my wife for a really good breakfast in the clubhouse.

We have just returned from a one night stay at the Newent Golf club and B&B, we received a friendly welcome from Maggie and her Dad, spent a relaxing afternoon on the terrace of the clubhouse, the sun was shining (unusually!!). The views are lovely and the golf course looks well kept (so my husband informed me). Met up with some of our family in the evening and had a delicious Asian meal in the Roadmaker Inn (as recommended by Maggie), very reasonably priced, but you do have to book as it is very popular. Had a very comfortable nights sleep and a tasty breakfast the next morning, which is cooked to order. One word of warning, don't rely on Google maps to get you there, we got horribly lost, down very winding, narrow country lanes, checked out AA route planner when we got home and this is a more direct route. We will definitely stay again and my husband will be taking his golf clubs next time!!

Just back from a few days stay at Newent Golf Club and B&B.I came across this place by accident 6 or 7 yrs ago due to the infamous floods in and around Gloucester,what a stroke of luck,this place is fantastic.The family are so friendly and welcoming and its set in beautiful surroundings in the Gloucestershire countryside.Stayed here about 8 times now and it feels like coming home when you arrive.There is a wonderful atmosphere about the place and you do feel like part of the family its magical.The rooms are kind of like your own little chalet with all the mod cons ect and powerful showers and so peaceful you sleep well no probs.The golf course is right on your doorstep,doesn't get any better than this.The breakfast is bang on you can have your fruit, cereal and yogurt ect and the full english is cooked to your liking,takes some beating.I'm always a little sad to leave here,what a place....

I have just got back from spending a few days at the Newent Golf club and B&B with my dad. We went to play a few rounds of golf and shut off from our busy lives. We got exactly what we wanted and plenty more. A warm welcome, a lovely breakfast, kind and attentive staff, a friendly atmosphere and a challenging little 9 hole course that really caused me some trouble in some areas. (Though i am very much an enthusiast, doesn't stop me 3 putting my way to bogies with shocking regularity) Tom and Maggie were great hosts but also great company, the golfing community at Newent are relaxed and very friendly. We fully intend on making our trip to Newent a annual event and hope to visit again soon.
