I booked an accommodation and a round of golf for my husband for his birthday treat and was disappointed with the whole package. The room (very basic and a little tired) had no air conditioning, as it was pretty much the last of the summer temperatures were still in the high 20's and all we got was a small fan which was in the cupboard certainly not sufficient for the job. Internet access was not complimentary and VERY expensive. None the less we were not intending to spend too long in the room (luckily) so we managed to get by for time we were there. The restaurants were ok, the only redeeming factor was the breakfast and the wonderful staff, that being said it certainly was not worth the price we paid. The game of golf was another story, on the website the course looks great however when we checked in with a rather less than attentive young lady we found that they had paired us up with another couple and after explaining the fact that it was a birthday gift was given the brush off and told that there was no other option available in a very surly manner. And so our relaxing game of golf became less so as the couple we were paired up with had not played for very long and so we were not able to play to a pace that was acceptable. The course was to be fair in a reasonable state however the lack of course management meant delays especially on the back nine were at times we waited on the tee for 20 mins before getting away all for the cost of £45 each! We later found a local course in Botley and so cancelled our final round of the weekend at the Meon Valley and played there which was delightful. They also have a hotel and would recommend this as an alternative venue. I did bring this to the attention of the receptionist when we left but she seemed less than interested.
