Middle of nowhere, no breakfast included, and limited bar/restaurant facilities. But...hey, the rooms are great, even if you pay extra for the breakfast you're quids in, and if you play golf, get a quick round in before moving on to work. Premier Inn, eat your heart out.

Room Tip: Any. I've stayed a few times now and not had a bad one

Took my wife here to have sometime on our own, used the swimming pool and spa, staff very friendly and food in pulse bar is good and a great price, sunny evening sat out on the terrace super view.My wife had some beauty treatments in morning before a lovely breakfast. Booked through booking.com very resonable price. would stay again.

We were impressed by the receptioniston arrival -very efficient. I chose to stay here mainly because it had a pool and it was the hottest day in July.
Having read the reviews I thought it would be a good find. In hindsight I wish we had gone elsewhere.
The room was clean and large but the bed and pillows very uncomfortable - bed hard and pillows flat. Walls thin so you can hear from sides and above. We were on ground floor and design of windows meant we could not leave them open when we were out. This meant the room was hot and stuffy. Curtains don't keep light out so hope you don't want a lie in!
The menu was more of a cafe menu and prices seamed reasonable. It didn't inspire us to eat there so went out. Because the place is quite remote you have to drive between 5-10 mins to find somewhere. I found drinks pricey. Over £5 for coke and orange squash and lemonade! Breakfast was better than we thought it would be and staff friendly.
Gym seemed good but didn't have time to use. Pool was small but functional - not relaxing though.

Stayed here saturday on the 30th june.We had a really good sat and sunday.Played the big course on saturday and thought it was in a really good condition.Its a long course playing around 6650 yards so you need to be on your a game.Played the smaller course which is called the garden and was pleasantly surprised how good it was.Its only 2100 yards long(PAR 34) 9 holes,so we went round twice.Didnt have dinner there at the restaurant but wished we did now as the indian we tried up the road wasnt that great.Breakfast was ok and the staff as usual couldnt do enough for you. Can i say a big thank you to James for inviting us back again and make sure you give your staff a pay rise this year.

I stayed at this hotel for one night and once there reception was a long wait for a member of staff to check me in. When I got to my room I booked the county suite [the large room in the hotel] and once in there well it was very poorly deco... The bathroom was so small for a large room it also had no bath tub and plaques on the wall half falling of. the blinds in the room are see through so any one on the golf corse could see you in the nude... but you also get a great view of the wonderful golf corse which any one can use. the beds are as hard as a rock and could not get good night sleep. I also found a dead beetle behind the bathroom door. we went swimming and one of the best pools ever i have ever swam in. The next morning we had breakfast and it was warm but there was no bread left for toast and we needed to ask.

over all stay was not brillant...

Room Tip: chose a room upstairs.

Room clean and reasonable.Breakfast the worst I have ever had in a hotel.Got to breakfast at 9.30am (open until 10am at weekends).On arrival,no glasses for fruit juice,no orange juice left,no fruit salad left,no cereal bowls,no plates,no baked beans left.After about 10 mins waiting,a small amount of crockery arrived but was soon used up.Staff disinterested until about 2 minutes past 10am when they very efficiently quickly moved all the food back into the kitchen (presumably for the staff to eat).Avoid like the plague.
