Very well run hotel with friendly staff, great golf courses and a good spa. I only have two areas that I feel the hotel need to work on.
1) The service at breakfast was slow, both mornings we had to wait 10 -15 mins before we were served coffee !! I like the majority of people like some caffeine as quick as I can get it in the morning. Otherwise the breakfast was good.
2) Can't be sure with any other rooms but beware of room 308 on a weekend with a function, you will hear the bass from the disco beneath.
Now for the good bits :
1) The evening meal was outstanding, great choice and all very well executed.
2) The golf courses are in great condition and a good challenge.
3) My wife had a massage that she loved.
4) We stayed on a dinner, bed and breakfast (with rounds of golf) deal and I think it was extremely good value at £199 per person for 2 nights.
Would definitely come back for another weekend without the kids.
