Just returned from another fantastic golf weekend at Beadlow. The courses are much improved this year with changes and a general overhaul of the bunkers and excellent greens. Hotel is functional as required. What puts Beadlow ahead of some other more expensive options for a golf weekend is the service and hospitality. Nothing is too difficult for the staff to fix, from a portion sizing issue at dinner to some overseas hospitality for one of our group in the bar! See you next year.

Booked room on Monday for Thursday night as work colleagues were already their, on arrival was told may have to stay elsewhere as they over booked but 20minutes later was able to stay. Rooms not bad could be cleaner but ok, shower really good. Breakfast should be included not an extra £7.

I don't really know where to start?! From booking to check out the whole experience was really not good.

I booked at least 4 months prior to our date of arrival for my wedding party to stay the night before and the morning of my wedding. We were told we had to pay up front, which I did, paying over the phone with a debit card. Only to find on checking my statement that too much money had been taken. When we phoned to find out why the owner was apologetic and promised a refund. This was only honoured after several weeks of chasing and threatening to cancel the booking completely (although probably a fruitless threat as they already had the money!)

On our day of arrival, we went into the golf shop and collected our keys and confirmed the late check out (which had been agreed in writing with the owner).Of the 4 rooms booked, one stunk of smoke so the couple asked to be moved and one of the 'triples' only had a single and 3/4 bed in it (booked for 3 people), so they also had to be moved. The other triple room only had two towels in (also booked for 3 people), when we went to reception to ask for another one, they were not happy to hand another one over and questioned why we needed it?!?!?!

Breakfast in the morning was a joke. We arrived at 7.30am, sat ourselves at the only available table which was dirty, and were ignored for 15 minutes. One of the party had to go to the bar to ask for some service and even then we were left waiting. They were told that we were a wedding party and that we were short on time as had hairdressers etc arriving, but this certainly did not speed things up. I will not go into details, but the whole thing was a shambles...no special touches for my big day here! To top it off, we were charged £7.50 per head for the privilege, made even worse by the fact this had already been paid upfront at the time of booking (the person who paid the bill did not know this!)

Unbeknown to me, but I have since found out, that on the morning of the wedding while we were all busy getting ready, the cleaning staff were very rude to one of the party because 'we were still in our rooms beyond check-out time'. Even after trying to explain that this had already been cleared with the owner, it took a trip to reception to explain the situation before we were permitted to stay in our rooms.

Thankfully we can all see the funny side now, but this was not an ideal way to start my wedding day...and I will definitely not be returning.

Room Tip: Opt for a 'suite'

We paid out for 4 rooms, one of which was an "executive room".

Upon our arrival, we were bemused to find that, having walked across to the hotel, we were greeted with a piece of paper sellotaped to the door, directing us back across to the golf reception, to check in at the golfing shop.

We were handed the keys, and despite one of our party having booked an "executive room", we were not told which room belonged to which party.
We were told however, that two of our keys were to be found back over at the hotel.

We trudged back across to the hotel to find no staff whatsoever. There were no signs directing you to the rooms. No clear signs as to what you're supposed to do at all. In the end, one of our party found a random phone on a wall of the hotel corridor and called a number which took him back to the golf shop. The lady who had sent us over in the first place revealed that the keys were indeed back over with her.

Having not been told which room belonged to which party, we naturally looked in all of them to finally locate this "executive room", costing an additional £15.
All 4 rooms were the same. All very thin walls. All peeling paint. All offering just one pillow per person. And, to be quite honest, all smelling less than "fresh".
It would seem that the title "executive room", means simply that your breakfast is included in the price. At £15, that's a rather expensive breakfast. Especially considering that one room had tea and toast for two in the morning, which cost them a mere £7 in total.

I sent a complaint detailing the above on June 26th. I have emailed a further 8 times and still haven't had any sort of acknowledgement from management. Just awful.
