“Brilliant Hotel!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

I'm writing this review right now during my stay. It's just simply fab - a new, modern, spacious and lovely finished rooms that deserves no fault whatsoever.

I seem to have been lucky enough to have been given a Superior Room which is a great bonus. The room itself is typically near to twice the size of some hotels I've stayed in previously. The decor and quality of everything in the room and bathroom are exquisite. No expense spared here that's for sure.

I've had a meal over in the clubhouse which was lovely and very reasonable too. The golf course, limited to what I've seen of it, looks excellent. I'm staying for business but I'd certainly coming down here for a weekend and some golf rounds on their 3 courses!

Very happy with this stay and would recommend to anyone. 5 stars all over this place!

Had a fantastic golf break towards the end of April. We were greeted at the hotel reception by a very efficient and friendly staff who were always prepared to be helpful. On entering our hotel rooms we were impressed by the size of the rooms and standard of the facilities within them .The hotel is in a nice location which is seperated from the clubhouse and was therefore mainly quiet all of the time we were there. The meals we had in both the hotel restaurant and the clubhouse were of the highest quality and I should point out that all of the staff in both places were exceptional. A final word about the golf courses which were in good condition and were suited to all handicaps and all three proved to be enjoyable. We will certainly be going back.

Went for a golf break as a pre stag do. The hotel is fairly new and rooms very nice providing two double beds and plenty of room so ideal for golf groups sharing rooms but equally would have been happy to take my partner here if she played golf. Evening Dinnner was included in our package and the chef did an excellent job and good choice and value. Restaurant looks out toward one of the tee's and is functional and modern but perhaps lacks a wow factor. The Hotel is within grounds but short walk to the Golf Club bar and Tees. The courses were great 3 nine hole courses from which they make various combinations depending on your stay. The courses offered good variety of water hazard and trees. Golf Bar afterwards was a bit quiet once local golfers left as hotel was quiet (hotel does not have a bar) The staff were very helpfuul though and suggested the 15 minute walk into the village which provided access to two nice local pubs. Would definitely consider for another golf break as accommodation and courses idel for that purpose. Apparently they do Sunday carverys but sadly we had to leave by then.

Room Tip: Looked like all rooms new and would either look out to course at front or behind it.

Thank you for taking the time to write your observations and I appreciate your kind words.
The hotel is still relatively new and continues to get very positive comments. However, there are still projects to complete, but the golf courses are now looking at their best and we continue to evolve our service delivery.
Our bar & restaurant is open all day, with wonderful views of the golf course and continues to attract more visitors, which in turn has improved the ambiance.
Our Sunday carvery is popular with the local community and we do serve dinner in the hotel, offering a fine dining experience to compliment the relaxed food of the bar.
All our restaurants are open to the public.
I am also exploring the possibility of putting a small bar in the hotel.

Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you in the future.

Kind regards
Jeff

Overall this hotel is fantastic. Its quiet, set in excellent surroundings and the rooms are furnished to a very high standard.

My room was really nice furnishing, soft quality bedding, a large and clean bathroom, a good sized flat screen tv that works and above all it was quiet!

I did feel the staff could have been a little more friendly. In the morning as I sat for breakfast I had to pick a table as no one was available and then I had to wait quite a while for someone to take my order. When the lady did take my order she was quite abrupt and clearly having a busy morning. Which I wouldn't have minded except there was only me and a three other tables taken.

I really would recommend this place to stay though.

Just had a golfing weekend at this fine establishment. The hotel has tremendous facilities, the staff are helpful and welcoming. Food is plentiful and well presented. The 3 golf courses are challenging and not for the faint-hearted. A delightful weekend was had by the 4 of us.

We have just returned from a one night stay at Sandford Springs Hotel to celebrate our friends birthday and the men playing golf, I would like to write a review because it was so lovely to check into a hotel room with everything absolutely top notch, although we only had a standard room it was beautifully furnished and you could not fault a thing even walking on the carpet was lovely and bouncy with everything being high standard and completely spotless, sadly because of a very inconsiderate loud bunch of golfers our sleep wasn't as peacefull to what we were looking forward to with them banging doors and being extremely load at 2.30 am, obviously this is not the hotel fault but still very annoying that some people cannot respect their surroundings or other guest around them. We had to have our evening meal over in the golf bar so did have to walk outside but on a summers eve could imagine looking over the golf course would be lovely, breakfast we feel was a let down because we had to continuously chase the waiter for our teas first then toast which we must have waited a good 30 mins then only cold brown served and yet again had to chase for the white the Restuarant wasn't even full so I dread to think how long breakfast would take if busy we were in there 11/2 hours, I would like to say though how friendly and helpfull Louisa McNutly was from first point of contact to make booking until we finished break.

Thank you for taking the time to write and I appreciate your comments about the hotel.
I am sorry that your stay was somewhat spoiled by a group of noisy golfing guests. We do try to keep any groups away from the bedrooms until they retire to bed and then ask them to be quiet as a courtesy to other guests.
Sadly, on this occasion, we were let down by a small minority of guests in the group.
In regard to the delay with your toast, I can only assume your were overlooked and for that I am sorry.
I do hope it won't put you off from returning in the future and we look forward to seeing you again.

Many thanks
Jeff

As has been mentioned by other reviewer this hotel is very new and only opened last year however although the whole building is very modern it still however manages to maintain a feeling of cosiness that maybe you may not expect.

The rooms are well equipped and you get the feeling that whoever designed the rooms put a great deal of thought into what would be the most suitable environment for the occupants.

We had our dinner in the hotel restaurant where there was good choice on the menu which was served cooked to perfection.

As mentioned the hotel restaurant is very good however should you wish to have more choice and maybe a little less formal further options are available in the Clubhouse. It should be noted however that the Clubhouse is situated a short walk across the car park, however should the weather be inclement umbrellas are provided in your room.

The staff from booking to check out was extremely pleasant, welcoming and helpful and they contributed to the enjoyment of our stay
.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and to also mention that the cost of staying their represents good value
