We decided to stay at this hotel for a weekend break on the strength of a Mr & Mrs Smith recommendation and the rave reviews of the spa.
Whilst we had a perfectly pleasant weekend, I think that there are a few points to highlight.
Firstly we were overcharged, as our friends were a year earlier, so do check your bill.
Secondly the cost of a two night break for the four of us came in substantially over £2,000, so make sure you bring your wallet!
Thirdly there is an element of stereotypical 'golf club' snootiness about the place - we were twice told that memebers had complained about our atire - what hideous sartorial crime had prompted this? Simply the wearing of sandals and a overly informal collar in the restaurant.
Finally the food in the main restaurant is rather average, albeit fairly inexpensive. For a hotel that flags up a room rate of £300 per night as being a special, I would have expected something rather more spectacular.
However, all that said, the spa was very nice, the tennis courts were superb and a fine weekend was had by all. Will we return - probably not, but not a disaster by any means, just not a good as expected.
