We stayed here for 1 night to attend a wedding nearby. I have absolutely no complaints, the room was a good size, with a huge bathroom, including a separate shower, maybe newly renovated as very modern and clean. We had bathrobes, complimentary water, coffee biscuits, toiletries,iron, hairdryer etc. We could not check in early but the staff at reception were very accommodating and let us use the spa facilities to get ready and keeping our bags safe. Breakfast was buffet style and again very nice, lots of choice. I cannot comment on the spa area or golf as we didn’t use them but the views from the restaurant are amazing. A very pleasant stat and again id like to say how lovely the reception staff were.

Unbelievable, the golf course was in very poor condition, green bumpy bare grass, terrible tees, even the simple things were bad like no water in the ball vleaners and rubbish bins not emptied. The rooms were good and clean very comfortable even had nice gowns, good showers, however the food was the worst I have had I was embarrassed for the waiting staff who had to serve the rubbish. Don’t go there!

Room Tip: Rooms were good but that’s all.

We were a party of 7 lady golfers and we had a great weekend. Staff were very friendly, although leaving one member of staff to run the bar meant there were long delays for coffee when the bar was busy. Breakfast and evening meals were good. Rooms were spacious, clean and tidy. Avoid courtyard facing rooms if you do not want to be kept awake around midnight. Golf courses were excellent, although rather crowded on Saturday. We will be visiting again, probably for a mid week break when it would be less busy.

Attended a golf society meet last Sunday and Monday. The golf course was in reasonable condition, albeit the greens could do with an Iron.
First impressions on arrival was very good and the reception staff were very helpful.
Unfortunately it went downhill from there. Almost everything we tried to order at the bar was out-of-stock. This continued for the two days.
The food at best was pub grub and a very limited choice. It was certainly not memorable. Upon coming in from the last round we thought we would order the sausage and egg or bacon and egg sandwiches - as advertised for golfers. Not available.
The price of the food at the bar is heavily over-priced and as an example an egg and cress sandwich was about £8.
Indeed the staff at the bar seemed to be completely disinterested and did not exactly explode into action to provide the order.
I can not find any reason for us to return to this venue and would strongly recommend you look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else

Where do I start....... the hotel is so tired, the food is dire,there’s very little staff although those that are there are amazing and try so hard to give a service! We were there the same time as the last review and it really was disturbing! It’s not the hotels fault these people at the wedding acted like this but an acknowledgement from the hotel would have been nice. I brought it up at reception and I got a sort of sorry. We had no sleep that night at all!!
The spa is also dire, Donna is lovely and did a lovely job but you even sensed it from her that the spa should be closed down.
Thus hotel has recently been taken over and is being run by agency staff when really it should be closed until completely refurbished. Hellidon Lakes thank you but you are Hell on Earth
