Castle Golf Hotel
Ranked #53 of 2,840 Hotels in Shenzhen
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Location: In the middle of the growing sub-city/district of Longgang.
Setup: Fancy, with huge grand high ceilings & the new furniture still at certain sections of the corridor.
If not mistaken, they are in business only since 2011.

Now for the bad:
Location: Thought easy for me to dodge the trafic (and it's more 'mild-mannered' if you compared to the yahoos in the CBD) when travelling to the suppliers site. There isn't much to do on the weekends unless you're a golfer.
Setup: Staff here hardly speak a word of English, frequentl having to run around looking for someone who does. After an almost 10 hour flight from Sydney, almost 2 hours in trafic, was made to wait because somehow my reservations from my company travel agent did not get thru. I offered for them to take me as a walk-in customer to speed things along but was still made to wait almost 1/2 an hours while they call high and low to confirm my reservation. Kept insisting that my travel printout is not valid, I explain thats fine and to treat me like a walk-in, went back calling again. Process repeated for numerous times until finally was able to check into room. That also with a sour face sending me off! Wanted to complain to the manager, but he's equally incapable of understanding much English!

Would I stay here again? "May have no choice as it's near to my vendor."
Will I stay over the weekend? "Hell - NO!"
Will I stay here on my own? "Have you been listening?"

Room Tip: Try to request one away from the lily/lotus pond. If you open the balcony, it's a mosquito fest...

Reviewed 3 February 2013

Stayed here for a business seminar - as well as a round of golf - and have to say I was pretty impressed.

The rooms are of a very decent standard - they do 'brag' about their Sony flatscreens, but I thought the bed was the real standout; far more comfortable than most hotels in China of this standard.

My Mandarin is, quite frankly, abysmal and while the staff here weren't expert English speakers, they did try and get to the heart of whatever request/problem I had. My slightly better Cantonese helped a little, but I think even complete non-Chinese speakers would have few issues staying here.

They do a rather grand buffet option for dinner - think oysters, lobster etc - and although I stayed away from the seafood, the food was generally of a very good standard. Breakfast, too, was comparable to most 'five'-star hotels on the mainland. Coffee (proper ground stuff) was a godsend.

Would I stay here again? Yes, if I had to be at this golf club. The environment was good and I enjoyed myself. While it's not a long trek into Longgang, it isn't convenient for exploring Shenzhen proper, and the local nightlife scene is, as far as I can make out, pretty nonexistent. A couple of us went to the nearby Crowne Plaza Longgang and the bar there was really rather quiet (although an almighty din coming from a big group pre-Chinese New Year dinner downstairs.

A quick word on the golf course: I played the A Course, and it was in pretty decent condition. A few quality holes, plenty of water, and some interesting stretches. It is rather tight in other parts though and some of the greens are insanely contoured but it's a decent workout.
