Having done several golf breaks over the last years we were keen to try somewhere new. Was also the first time we booked through Your Golf Travel instead of Golfbreaks.com. The representative suggested this particular resort, giving it a glowing recommendation. I must say from the off that for the £195 per person we spent, we have been to much better venues with far better facilities. On the particular weekend that we had our golf break there was a wedding at the venue and the entire focus of the staff was focused on the wedding. The main restaurant was closed on the night of the wedding so we had to have dinner in the golf bar and the following morning we had to find a waiter/waitress to serve us as we were ignored for 15 minutes whilst they attended to the wedding party. I understand that wedding parties probably generate far more revenue than golf breaks and if that is the case then the hotel should stick to the weddings, not offer both and neglect the people on the golf breaks. The rooms are really rudimentary, never before have we had a twin with two single beds, always been two doubles. Very basic and comparable to Premier Inns and Travel Lodges, no personal touches at all. The only plus side of a disappointing golf break was the two golf courses which were really interesting and challenging.
