First and foremost the trip was was golf - and the courses were very good indeed even at this time of year given the amount of rain we've had. Value for money is spot on, around £50 for b&b and two rounds of golf on two quite different courses.
But! there are some buts.
My room was a walk back in time, drab, dated and worn out. However evrything in there worked and nothing was missing. A clean ensuite, shower/bath. Flat screen TV, trouser press, ironing board, iron, tea coffee, and plenty of storage in a decent sized room.
The front of the hotel is in need of urgent facelift as is the main clubhouse exterior. Inside the hotel the story is the same. This has a AA 3* rating plaque on the wall outside, I think they need to revisit.
We did'nt have dinner included but our party had a bar meal which could not be consumed at a table. We had to eat it off a low coffee table, far too low to enjoy properly. This needs addessing urgently as bar meals are not cheap. £11 for a burger? Now when I order a meal I expect it to get what the it says on the menue for that price. Alas not, additionally Curry for others in our party was supposed to be served with poppadom and mango chutney, er . . no. We made a complainant which met with " I'll tell the chef". what good is that? How will that solve the issue with the customer?
bar prices are a bit high given the lack of investment there. The buffet breakfast was good.
Overall value was good because of the golf courses. If you just want the hotel accomodation without golf, I suggest you go elsewhere.
