Couples golf weekend
Jul 2021 • Couples
Book for 2 nights 3 rounds of golf to include breakfast and evening meals
Rooms are large and ok breakfast was good but service slow and seams staff are inexperienced! !
Evening meals were OK but again service was poor and slow ! Saying that on 2nd night we were served by Abby she was brilliant and made stay part of our weekend so much better cost of food outside our package was high £12 sandwiches £4 small bottles of coke and basic wine £30 plus a bottle!!
GOLF
course was good green's were ok the rough is very rough but I suppose that's what protects the course as there are no bunkers !!!
Yardage for ladies is to long as the carry over rough is long hence only 1 ladie member

Worst course I've played in 10 years
Apr 2021
Took my 3 sons to play - we all agreed -Very over priced, course is in very poor condition. like playing on a farm.
putting green looks as if they have had horses walking over it.
I have played on better pay and play courses in better condition.
Never never again
ordered tea got coffee !

Brilliant course, friendly staff
Jun 2019 • Friends
I played here months ago and it was very good and came back with my son to try out again.
When you arrive at the main gate, it is a long drive through beautiful countryside, yet the signage is poor and surprisingly easy to miss the gold course and end up at the mansion instead. Follow the sign for Ann's pantry! Anyhow, minor issue, when we arrived we checked in at the pro shop. The staff were so helpful and friendly. On the course we found it so good. The greens were true, not a bump on sight, and in great condition. I understand others had got the bum deal months ago when they had sand on top, which happened also at my local course. It's procedure. Gutted when it happens and you play the course. But for us, no sand in sight, was perfect.
At the clubhouse for lunch we had a snack and drinks. The meal took a while but was freshly cooked. The staff were rushed and it took a while for the drinks. But the staff had touch to do but were still so friendly.
Jonio is a great asset and couldn't do enough for us at the 19th hole.
We are definitely coming back. Great course, friendly staff and lovely location. Need more signage on arrival an possibly a couple more signs on the course but otherwise peefwct. Enjoy

enjoyable golf.... bring a packed lunch and drinks!
May 2019 • Friends
The guys in the pro shop were very accommodating, the course was ok, i booked a deal on tee off times & now i've experience the course i wouldn't pay full price to play it, apart from the surroundings there are far better courses in the area.
A friend of mine played the course a month before and advised us to bring a packed lunch rather than getting something in the bar restaurant when we finished the front 9.
I should have listened! An hour and 40 minute later our chicken sandwiches with a mere essence of crisps arrived. We complained 7 times about the wait, on the 6th time we had actually found out our order hadn't even been given to the kitchen!
you would have believed Bernard Mathews sold premium high quality chicken for sandwiches after experiencing one at Luton Hoo!
After drinking 3 and a half litres of water to wash the dryness from my palate we continued on to the back 9 which was pretty much as average as the front.

To sum up Luton Hoo, premium & luxury at the front cover, poor quality and terrible service on the back.

Breakfast
Apr 2019 • Couples
This was the vegan offering at breakfast. Everything looked and tasted as though it had been precooked and reheated. Both the quality and quantity of food was dismal. Congealed beans, tasteless mushroom, 1/2 a tomato and inedible cooked from frozen hash brown. Not even close to what you except in a 5 star hotel. I’ve had much better food at a budget hotel.

Over par...
Apr 2019 • Friends
We were given a birthday present that was coffe and bacon rolls, 18 holes znd then z 2 course lunch from the brasserie. We were joined by a friend who paid a £30 green fee, expensive for a Monday morning round and when you consider the amount of sand on the uncut greens..there are no bumkers on this course which is set in beautiful surroundings. The pro shop were very helpful and the brasserie staff tried to be but were let down badly by the backroom staff...we waited 25 minutes for a bacon roll and there was only two other people in the brasserie ! We enjoyed the layout of the course but, there is a lack of marker/direction boards and if you dont know the course you may struggle. The fairways were in good condition but the greens as previousky mentioned were sandy and uncut..after our round, about 3pm, we went back to the brasserie for our lunch, 2 ploughmans please, 10 minutes we are told...sorry we've run out of ploughmans ! How can you run out of bread ? So wd settled for focaccia... our friens had a club sandwich which arrived within 10 minutes, our focaccia took at lest 30 minutes to arrive ! To be fair, the staff were very apologetic but the wait was ridiculous given that there were only 4 people there ! The poor service tarnushed the day and a 60th birthday present....

Greens let the course down
Nov 2018 • Friends
Me and my dad went to this course on Sunday, for £50 each we got a Sausage sandwich, round of golf and sausage and mash after. We finally found the pro shop, after going the wrong way a few times due to the lack of signage. We went on the putting green to practice and we thought it was just a chipping green as it were so bad. After we had a practice we went to the first but we didn’t know where the first hole was as no signage, the staff didn’t tell us either. We eventually found it. The course was in decent condition except the greens were very poor, you have no confidence on any putt due to bad condition, I did call up when booking and asked about the greens to which I was told “they were in good condition and no maintenance has been done” the greens were sandy, long, had dead patches and slow, for the price we pay the greens were very poor and much better golf courses for less money. I would however go again but the greens would have to be a lot better!!

Good course - needs to mature - expensive drink after!
Oct 2018 • Friends
I played here on a windy Friday afternoon in October. The golf area is very nice; practice facilities are good and the bacon roll and coffee were very good. The course is well set out, very few bunkers, and felt quite open as if it needs another 15-20 years or so for the trees\ course to bed in.
Greens were fast and true, tee boxes were flat and well maintained. I play off a Handicap of 9 as a reference for the comments.
The course did not feel too long to me, and quite a few Par 5s and - with the wind - a few were easily reached in 2. One ridiculous 250 yard Par 3 with a small green - who thought that up, not a golfer!
There were some small yardage markers in middle of fairways but not easy to spot so they could do with some better ones on side of fairway.
When I finished I went to the bar for my usual "BLACKCURRANT AND SODA" before getting a beer later. A pint of blackcurrant and soda - £4.95!! Ridiculous. I have no trouble with a golf club making a profit but...... wow. Spoiled quite a nice day and may be decide I'd not come back again. Shame.
If you go, bring your own drink.

Average stay
Oct 2018 • Couples
Stayed here for 2 nights as we were going to a wedding.

Check-in at the desk was slow, even considering there was a lot of people arriving they only had 2 people on the desk.

When we got to our room it was smaller than I thought but actually it was fine for a room and that’s all we used it for.

The bed was reasonably comfortable. There was also tea and coffee facilities in the room.

The food at the bar was probably average. The pizza was pretty good. Not wow.

The breakfast had a reasonable selection, although it would have been nice for a few more pastries on offer. The fry-up option didn’t look that appealing. The sausages looked cheap so I didn’t try them.

All in all for the price we paid I had higher expectations. I wouldn’t return.
