Stayed mid-October for a one night golf break. This was a return visit after an enjoyable break last year. We paid an upgrade to play two rounds on the Abbotsley course, which I would recommend to any other visitors. There's no easy holes and the back nine in particular asks questions from tee to green. Considering the time of year the course was in very good condition. Other plus points included the food, with a tasty three course meal enhanced by homemade bread (rather than a bland stale roll) and a hearty breakfast. The bar facilities were great too, with a pool table and dart board that kept the competitive sports going into the night. The hotel is functional but the rooms were clean, tidy and did the job after an enjoyable first round. The reception staff were really helpful and efficient too. The only negative was that the staff in the restaurant were a little overwhelmed since the place was packed. As a result "service with a smile" was hit and miss. But then I'm sure I'd struggle to beam from ear to ear dealing with a room full of hungry golfers! In summary, great golf, good food and a comfy bed all packaged up at a very reasonable price. I look forward to returning in the future.

Hi Raek124, thank you very much for your review. I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you here again soon. We were, as you said very light on the ground with staff last week but we have now put measures in place so we avoid this happening again. Please let me know next time you are here.
