“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Stayed at Shaw Hill for 2 nights. Helpful staff, comfortable rooms.. Great golf course and swimmng pool to use as well. Will be making a return visit soon. Breakfast was excellent as was the dinner in Vardons Restaurant. Afternoon tea was a special treat as well.

We attended a friends birthday celebration and stayed overnight. The staff were helpful courteous and made us feel very welcome. The food in the restaurant was delicious and Paul who was in charge in the restaurant was excellent. The breakfast the next day was lovely too. The grounds are beautiful. Our room was large with a comfy bed - décor was a little tired but it was clean and had all the usual facilities - tea /coffee etc. TV only seemed to have sports channels for some reason but was not a problem. Would definitely go back again.
Did not get chance to use the spa facilities or the golf course.

We live locally to Shaw Hill so have not experienced staying over BUT we have attended weddings and various other functions and regularly visit the restaurant as well as attend evenings of special entertainment.
We continue to be impressed with the overall standard with the staff always friendly, polite and efficient.
The recently appointed new head chef is maintaining and improving the very high standard of food in both quality and presentation, which has gained a deserved reputation over many years.
We have always felt that we receive good value for money at Shaw Hill and the for senior citizens lunches rates are terrific.Give it a try! ! You will get excellent menu choice, top quality food, super wines and the very best of friendly, efficient service.

Room Tip: Rooms to the west overlook the golf course and are, of course, the best ones.

Booked to stay here via a hotel website as we were visiting the area. Really impressed with the appearance of the hotel and the staff were all very helpful and friendly.

The rooms could do with updating such a new wallpaper to become a little more modernized and include things such as a DVD player as these are generally standard in lots of other hotels nowadays.

Otherwise though, really happy - the pool facilities were great, loved the sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and pool. Very clear and high quality - really nice addition to the hotel (One of the reasons we chose the hotel)

Would recommend to others as it is great for one night guests in the area, golfers and also weddings seem well looked after too.

We celebrated our wedding at Shaw Hill which was in March and it was perfect in every way & we really couldn't have asked for any more from the staff.

From the moment we arrived Friday to leaving on the Sunday, everything was just fantastic.
Everyone commented on how lovely the food was (& the portion sizes, even if we did all need a nap afterwards!) We had a family meal the night before our wedding in the restaurant and was really impressed with the food and really didn't expect the same standards for 60 guests the day after but the food was amazing (even the sausage barms at our evening reception!)

All the staff work so hard, the lady on reception, bar staff, waiting staff but especially Guy & Matt who made sure everything was perfect on our big day, they were never still!

We stayed at Shaw Hill 2 nights, my parents had a large room at the front of the hotel looking out over the golf course, lovely views, although it did get a little cold in this room at night (probably because of the size) and they only had a small heater to warm up the room. Think maybe the radiators are on a timer as we didn't manage to get them to come on.

We had the room next door which was a lot smaller and didn't get much light as it was on the side of the hotel, no view (think we had room 14) it was a lot warmer in our room though. All rooms were clean and bathrooms nice and clean although dated.

The bridal suite which we had the night of our wedding was a gorgeous room and so big, again overlooking the golf course. We had a huge wardrobe and dressing table space, sofa & coffee table and a large corner bath, just a shame that we only spent a few hours in this room before having to check out!

Would love to visit again when things are not so hectic, it seems the ideal place to spend a relaxing night.

Thank you all for a perfect weekend!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel overlook the golf course, amazing!

Stayed overnight for a family wedding nearby.

Very pleasant, would visit again. Staff were friendly and helpful, looking after a number of guests from the same wedding.

Room was comfortable and everything worked nicely. Can't really say more as I was room-only and really just used it as a place to lay my head after a long day.

I recently had a lovely stay at Shaw Hill, initially it was to be one night but my circumstances changed and I decided on another night. When I telephoned the hotel Angela was wonderful and really helpful and organised an extra nights' stay for me.
As I live in Jersey this was to be a little holiday for me and also I was attending my friend's Wedding. My mum was so thrilled to hear about the extra night I was staying that she also booked in and had a lovely stay :)
We enjoyed afternoon tea and a swim in the pool, taking in the jacuzzi, steam room and sauna too - of course!
My room was lovely, and the bed was absolutely divine....I had a wonderful sleep there.
My mum's room was lovely too, but it was colder than mine, even though we had been placed next door to each other (much appreciated). We did put the heating on in the room and mum was comfortable. I did mean to mention the room being cooler on departure, but forgot. I think it was due to really big windows (certainly compared to my room).
As for the Wedding, everything was truly wonderful - the venue, the service and the food, I enjoyed it all!!!
If ever I am up so far north again I will come and visit :)

Room Tip: Ask for one without big windows!
