A group of 6 ( 3 couples ) rented one of the larger lodges for the weekend . 2 great golf courses ,a Spa for the ladies and 3 comfortable rooms within the lodge . We self catered but eat out at a local restaurant on the Saturday night . Very well equipped lodge with a mini bus to run you to and from the hotel . TV's in every room plus DVD player and amp . We enjoyed the relaxed time table of having breakfast or a snack when we wanted. The staff at the hotel were very friendly .
One lodge had a party which was not too good for the families in the other lodges with kids . (it was half term ) but it finished at midnight so no major deal . We did have a problem with the hot water but the duty manager sorted us out as we left with no fuss . He handled it the way it should have been handled so we will be back early summer .
