The Golf Hotel
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Woodhall Spa
Reviewed 10 August 2013

This hotel is well past its sell buy date. What was probably a nice hotel once upon a time is now a sorry collection of peeling paint, wayward wiring with dated decor. The current owners appear to have spent the minimum amount possible to get the public areas into an acceptable state, but seem to have spent no money at all on the rooms, corridors and other areas of the hotel. There were signs in the corridors saying "Sorry for the renovations over the next 4 weeks", but these were dated 29th April ... my stay was in August!

As for my room, the carpet was badly worn, there were massive cracks in the basin and no air conditioner. The ridiculously hot towel rail was downright dangerous in such a narrow bathroom and the shower had just 2 temperatures - boiling or freezing! The towel was not changed all week and the small supply of tea, coffee and biscuits was not replenished during my stay.

The food in the restaurant/bar was fine, but not great and the choice for breakfast was extremely limited.

Despite the staff being friendly and courteous, I would not recommend this hotel in its present state.

We had a super time at the Golf Hotel for this event. We had a lovely, spacious and comfortable room, and the staff, as well as being their usual helpful selves, dressed in 1940's style to add to the atmosphere.
We are vegetarians, and the veggie breakfasts and evening meals were first class.
As always, we were totally happy with our stay, and we are looking forward to our next visit.

On arrival we saw paint flaking off outside the building.reception good however the rest of the hotel was crying out for new carpets fresh paint work and to have a major refurbishment.fire doors were wedged open no anti slip mats in baths when using showers .then if you could read old tired hotel information in your room ours had tea/coffee stains on it we were informed that the doors are locked at 11pm and to let reception know if we were going to be back later than 11pm.the gardens resembled a builders yard and it was a very sunny weekend and would have been nice to sit or walk in said gardens ( we never packed hard hats) had I not left my credit card details for payment I would have turned around in car park on arrival and left.

The hotel is charming and attractive with lovely grounds. It's conveniently located in the heart of the village, and near the golf course, and has good spa facilities. The lack of air con in the bedrooms made sleeping difficult, and if you opened the windows, you were often disturbed by late night drinkers on the terrace below. The food in the restaurant was good, but the service was poor in the restaurant; not well trained enough..

I wasn't too much impressed with the quality of the room, especially when my wife found hair on the chair and in the bathroom, plus...the tray with coffee and tea was filthy with dust!!
The service was not so great, so...we really dont't have reasons to stay again here!

Excited about our escape, but dissapointed with our accomodation!

This is a review of the property in mid refresh so take some of it with a pinch of salt. The new reception and bedroom (not bathroom) looks attractive but the old parts of the hotel are REALLY old.

Location is great if you need to be in this area. Close to RAF Coningsby for the BBMF or East Kirkby for the Just Jane Lancaster. It is in a beautiful village with nice cafes etc. Reception was well organised and polite. Parking is good.

I was aware the room was partly renovated so will skip comments at this point. Observations to check for if you book following the re-fit ? No air con in the room. No fridge in the room to cool drinks. No Fan. Front window was not really secure onto a landing and no safe. I would trust these will be addressed as part of the re-fit.

Food was uniformly very good at dinner and breakfast. Prices for dinner were modest and the portion fresh and a decent size. Wine and beer were also well priced for a hotel. Staff were polite and efficient. There is a nice garden off the bar if you want to sit outside. It has a very nice air about it.

Issues. RAF Coningsby is an operational base for Eurofighter as well as the Lancaster and Spitfire/Hurricane of the BBMF. They are not quiet aircraft so assume some noise, less than a hotel near to LHR or Luton etc mind you. EasyJet have more aircraft than the RAF these days so there are not that many flights ! WiFi is only in the bar area and does not currently cover the rooms however it is mid-refit so I trust this will be addressed.

Reasonable prices and decent value. Would be happy to stay again.

Room Tip: Do ask about Air/Con, WiFi and if you room is fully refurbished.
