We came on a golf break for two days on a Monday and Tuesday. The pro-shop staff and starter were friendly and informative.The Arden golf course was in great condition, and is very challenging. After our first round we checked in to the hotel, but our room had not been cleaned. However, after a call to reception we were moved to a new room nearby, and the receptionist brought the new key to us rather than us having to go back to reception. The rooms are clean and well sized, and the bed large and comfortable.
Dinner in the restaurant was very good, with the only black mark being that they did not have any desert wine. Breakfast was OK, except that the omlettes (cooked to order) were not great.
Our second round of golf was on the Aylesford, not in quite such good condition as the Arden but still very enjoyable and considerably easier.
Overall, a very pleasant stay, and I would recommend both the golf and the hotel.
