Booked for a two night stay to play golf.the course is well maintained and interesting.good green fees and buggy hire.
The accommodation leaves a lot to be desired.....We booked a'four poster'room and were surprised to find that the bed consisted of a four foot six lumpy mattress in a wooden frame.no drapes etc.The tea tray had 2 cups,1 saucer and spoon on both days.no bath mat on the second day and the towels very thin,small and rough.The bedroom furniture appeared to be circa 1950
The toilet roll was not replaced.
We had dinner in the 'classicaly decorated' Churchill restaurant on the first evening....having dressed for dinner after reading the website and assuming that gentlemen would be expected to wear a jacket,we were amazed to be seated at a bare table in a very stark dining room.we looked through to the conservatory area where we saw that the tables had cloths and asked the (rather pleasant)waiter if we could move.we moved only to find that The table cloths were plastic and thin paper napkins.The table'd'hote dinner was acceptable for the price charged,but the menu remained the same the following night,,so we ate in the 'brasserie' which is a cross between public bar and a transport cafe.although the staff were most pleasant and efficient
Throughout the building there was a very musty smell which one assumed came from dirty old carpets
All in all....what a dreadful shame it is obvious that this had once been a quality establishment.
We travel very frequently and have never had cause to write comments like these before
