The lamb curry was really good in the restaurant. The breakfast was good. The gardens and golf course are absolutely beautiful. If you want a peaceful, relaxed place I would highly...

The golf course is in great condition and it was amazing to be able to play at Selborne. It's a must if you in the area. The staff at the Pro Shop are helpful. The Bar area in the Clubhouse is great as well.
