I booked at the morley hayes after coming across the hotel on a golfing website. I wasn't too sure as I'd booked primarilly as a suprise for my boyfriend.
I had no need to worry as I turned off the road, he made me slow down to admire the driving range and golf course. We arrived half an hour before check in and thought we'd just ask if the rooms were available to be told we had to come back at exactly 3pm! Ok we were early. Anyway we had a walk round and checked in. The room was great, the size of the bed was fantastic enough room to spread out! It was a standard room but we felt that it was a little over cluttered. We didn't think it needed the round table and the extra work surface that came out. The shower curtain was a bit baffling as it curved round it would have been better straight! The shower was good and the pressure fantastic. Just a few gripes on big clumps of dust along the wooden surfaces but nothing a good wipe wouldn't sort out.
We used the dovecote restaurant, roosters and spikes during our stay and have no complaints whatsover.
We had the pleasure of using the driving range which my boyfriend was very good as you could tee off on grass! He also played on the short course twice. I was told that I would need the clothing and shoes to accompany him on the course and got into a panic as to where to buy the attire. I need not have worried as a member of staff over seeing the course said yes you are suppose to dress a certain way but he would let me on with a good pair of trainers on. I respect the rules but was very grateful for this member of staff's discretion.
I can't complain at all about morley hayes apart from the lack of personality at check in and the grumpy service received at breakfast. But not everything can be perfect.
We were a little sad to leave but will definitely return.
