“Our wedding - the best day of our lives, thank you Golf Links House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

What can we say! Our wedding day took place only yesterday-yet we find the time and desire to write a review so soon. Golf Links House has been the most fabulous place providing the highest standard of care and attention to make our big day immensely special.
A wedding being organised from a different country is not easy to achieve, email communication was paramount in ensuring our day was organised properly-and this was provided by Paddy without any issue.
We had a civil ceremony followed by a reception within the Fairway Suite. The room was absolutely stunning, twinkly lights on the roof beams, a fairy lit backdrop to the top table and beautifully lit candles set the most romantic scene possible. The platinum package is absolutely a deal worth taking. There is so much included for an absolute bargain price (email paddy and he will send you the details!)
The food-my goodness it was utterly exceptional. Not a single guest left the building without sending compliments to the kitchen. We can honestly say that we have never in our lives been to a function with so many people that provided such a high standard of food. It was piping hot when set at the table and let's just say nobody left the table hungry (huge portions!).
The staff on the day could not have done more or been more accommodating in meeting the needs of ourselves or any of our guests. Any requests were met with smiles and dealt with quickly and without fuss.
A lot of our guests travelled from England to join us on our day. Included in our package was a reduction on rooms for guests staying overnight. The rooms were bright and airy with comfortable beds and fresh bedding. Tea and coffee facilities were available, a television in the bedroom and a wet room or shower. The guests who retired to bed early stated they could not hear any noise coming from the evening reception-bonus!!!!
Overall, we cannot thank Paddy and his staff for making our day absolutely amazing. I can guarantee that what we experienced would not have been replicated anywhere else. Thank you thank you thank you.
Mr and Mrs A!

Stayed 2 nights, check in ok, agree with the comments about dirty cups, the older lady was very grumpy!! We went out for a few drinks in the town and brought back pizza late at nite only to be snarled at by the older lady that food was not allowed!! We just ignored her and took it to our room anyway! We have stayed in a lot of hotels/b&b but that was a first to be told no food, but actually over all the place was dead on although I'm surprise in none of the other reveiws that someone has not mentioned the breakfast time 8.30 - 9.15!!! We did not feel that that time was good at all. Check out the grumpy older lady never spoke apart from counting the money then said thank you.

Many thanks for taking the time to review your recent visit with us. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy all the aspects of your stay. We do have a policy of no take-away food in the guest rooms, this is simply a hygiene and courtesy issue for other guests and we make no apology for it.. We have in the past had linen destroyed with take-away food and also the smell can be hard to clear the following morning. I'm sure you'll agree that if when you had checked into your room initially, there was a strong smell of curry etc, you would not have had a good first impression of our establishment. There is clear signage all around the guest areas which clearly state that we do not permit take-away food in the rooms.
I'm sorry that you felt the need to ignore these signs and this coupled with the fact that you made the owner get out of bed in the early hours of the morning to open the door, even though you had the key in your hand, maybe contributed to her being 'grumpy' as you said. We are all only human at the end of the day.
I hope this clarifies your points and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Look no further than the Golflinks House, even though there are many hotels even 4star in the area, none of these come close to this beautiful haven, from the food, staff and setting it really is second to none

We came across this B&B after a long drive and search for somewhere to stay but we were so glad we did. It was a nice, comfortable room and it was not expensive either. The restaurant in the guest house was great and they went the extra mile to make sure we got what we wanted. The breakfast was good and overall the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay. Next time I won't just 'come across it' I would make a point of booking to go there. Thanks for a nice stay!!!
