Recently visited here for an overnight stay with a group of friends and was quite impressed with the whole package. Location was superb ! I didn't play golf but my friends assured me that this was a truly pleasant course to play on and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel room and facilities were of high standard and good quality furnishings, everything you required was there. We ate in the restaurant in the evening, and again I was surprised by the standard of the food and menu choice - a delicious meal, well presented with pleasant service. Breakfast buffet was equally as good - plenty choice of hot and cold dishes. We were fortunate enough to enjoy the spell of hot sunshine so sat amongst our waddling friends, babies eagerly awaiting titbits - outside on the terrace overlooking the course - a really beautiful spot to relax and while the time away ! Snack foods served at this area were also good value for money and ample portions. A good venue for a group reunion ( namely past captains anniversary ! ) and would certainly recommend the place for whatever occasion and will return. Thank you for a pleasant and enjoyable stay.

We booked a spa deal for 10 of us to celebrate my Sisters hen party.

We had an amazing day - the staff in both the Spa and Bistro were fantastic, very professional and friendly and always willing to go the extra mile offering to dress our lunch table with goodies for the bride and placing balloons.

We had a choice of treatment's and the spa staff had booked each of us in with another member of the party which worked perfectly.

Overall, a wonderful day to make a special occasion.

we would highly recommend the golf/spa resort for any stay.

Amazing value for such a special experience.

Stayed here for one night on a business trip. Check-in/out was easy; the room and bathroom facilities were excellent - spacious , comfortable and clean - the bath was the deepest I've ever seen . The food and service were both very good. The room was set up incorrectly for the meeting but staff acted quickly to rectify this and both the mid-morning break which consisted of scones, cream and jam or a selection of pastries and the packed lunches that were given to those who had to travel a long distance were very good.

Dear KarenM,

Thank you for providing some feedback regarding your recent experience at the resort, we welcome all feedback and it's nice to hear from someone who visited the Resort for work purposes.

I'm glad you found the hotel, food and bedroom facilities to be of a high standard but I'm disappointed that the meeting rooms was set up incorrectly. We have a dedicated team on site to ensure the set up are as requested and also have weekly meetings which run thru all events so a simple error such as this should not have occurred however I'm glad our team were able to rectify quickly.

I do hope you would consider using the Resort for future events or visiting for leisure purposes in future.

Kind regards

Our golf society (22 players) visited Formby Hall on a Sunday/Monday deal. The golf course is excellent, especially considering the traffic that plays on it. It's a real challenge, plenty of variety, fast but true greens, water, bunkers, you name it. In addition there is a nice pro shop, driving range and practice area. The hotel is top class, nice rooms, good food, great bar and patio area. Above all, for £100 including B&BEM and discount off drinks plus two rounds of golf the value for money is unbeatable. Far better than Forest of Arden and Forest Pines. It evens runs Celtic Manor very close. Highly recommended.

Dear fishnbev,

Thank you for taking the time to post your lovely review, it is always great to hear feedback from our golf societies and what greater compliment than the 'best golf weekend of the year'.

I have forwarded on a copy of your review to the departmental managers at the Resort so they can share your fantastic comments with their teams. Our green keepers do a brilliant job ensuring the course is always at it best throughout the year.

We have some great summer offers planned and also do great incentives for large groups to come back again so I hope one of those would be of interest to you.

Kind regards

We had a very nice room with french doors overlooking the 18th green.
Staff friendly and helpful even when there was a rush on to check in.
Golf course was in lovely condition, even the bunkers of which there are many were well kept.
Dinner was good and breakfast was the usual hotel fare.
We enjoyed our stay and just may go again.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the golf course, the ground floor rooms have table & chairs outside.

We recently had a Sunday Driver at Formby Hall and we had a fabulous time. The hotel room, dining and golf were second to non. I left behind a pair of expensive golfing trousers and rang the hotel who said they would check. A gentleman by the name of Steve rang me back within the hour to say that he had found them and that he would post them out to me to save me having to drive all the way back.

This is the kind of service that one would hope to receive but not expect it. 10/10 Formby Hall, we are hoping to come back again at the end of September with the same gang.

Booked for two nights for birthday treat for the wife.On arrival greeted by very helpful receptionist who explained everything.Went to book spa treatments,and was told no availability due to a wedding and various Hen and Stag Parties.The Golf was a similar story.Big Competition on the Friday and Saturday,earliiest time was 5pm Friday and 4.30 pm Saturday.
Were made to feel as we were individuals and not large groups not a lot could have been done.As we had come away to chill out felt slightly cheated
The Hotel itself was fine and the Staff were freindly.

Dear Steve S,

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Resort, we welcome al feedback as it helps us to identify areas in which improvement can be made. I'm very sorry to hear that you felt the Resort catered for larger groups as opposed to couples, I can assure you that this is not the case. We cater for a wide variety of guests and the Resort is a very popular choice.

As I'm sure you can appreciate the Spa and Golf o tend to get very busy and as such I is always advisable to book in advance if you wish to play golf or have treatments, we can on occasion have cancellations which can be booked on arrival however this cannot always be guaranteed. If you did wait until you arrive to try and book golf or spa then it is highly likely they would have been fully booked or have limited times available.

Should you return to the resort again in future please do speak with our reservations team and they can book golf or spa for you along with a bedroom and dinner.

Kind regards
Gemma Adderley
