I booked for myself and my parents for 3 nights as part of the summer getaway deal which included golf for my father and myself and spa treatment for my mother. This included a room upgrade and was excellent value we thought for the standard of our stay. The hotel is beautifully situated, the grounds breathtaking, standards in the hotel as a whole very good indeed - the rooms overlooking the course fantastic and the staff very helpful overall. We ate in the Brasserie which was excellent - lovely food, exceptional service from the staff here definitely worth a special mention. The golf course is amazing - the professional staff couldn't be more helpful. We had a really lovely time and loved our golf but would have liked to play more...see below.
Cons: service was patchy in the main restaurant and bar The Orangery - particularly at breakfast and afternoon tea, sometimes got what we didn't order, had to wait a long time and the hot breakfast not worth the wait (surprising in such a high standard hotel) although the cold buffet was lovely.
We wanted two games of golf but couldn't get on the course for one day because of a corporate booking which took up the whole of one day and seemed pretty poor if you are staying staying at the hotel.
