Went with a group of friends for a golf weekend and we were all very pleasantly surprised by the rooms. Modern and very comfortable with a great bathroom and shower. The food was excellent but the drinks were very expensive but that is not unusual in large hotels. The staff were good and very helpful..
One of the golf courses was ok but not that interesting but the second course was very good. The biggest problem was the length of the rough which was very long and consequently the majority of the mixed ability golfers would spend ages looking for balls that had missed the fairways.
Rounds were taking over 5 hours which took away some of the enjoyment.
The cost of soft drinks and water in the golf shop was very expensive. A rip off.
