Exactly what you can expect for the price, great golf, somewhat old and dated facilities, but for the price you simply cannot complain. Went as a group of 14, to play golf, found the rooms to be somewhat cramped and dated, however for the amount of time you actually spend in them, they are perfectly adequate. The complex is much larger than I imagined, and there were plenty of things to do if you could find the time between rounds. The food was like the rooms, perfectly adequate, not 5* dinning! but if you expected that then perhaps you should be looking elsewhere! However, if you want reasonable selection of food, a great self service breakfast and lunch, with waitress service for dinner, then this is the place for you. I have seen others comment on the staff being unfriendly, and I can understand that on the odd occasion the staff may not be the friendliest, but I think that's because a lot of them seem to be fairly new, and probably need to be knocked into shape a little with some attention from senior staff....now for the golf, a vast complex containing several courses, of varying degrees of difficulty, length and test. All of them that I played were in fabulous condition, especially given the amount of footfall (buggy-fall?) they receive. I didn't appreciate the buggy path setup that can mean lengthy walks to and fro for clubs between the buggy and your ball, so make sure to factor that into your aim! Hats off to the green staff, they do a tremendous job.
So overall, for the price this place is fantastic, and I look forward to returning next year.....my only bugbear for the facilities is that the driving range is almost worthless as it has been shortened to a netted area so nothing other than some swing practise is possible....given golf is a large feature, it could really do with having a proper driving range along with a practise are for your short game, and I also found the course bunkers were unplayable, as they were too compacted with a type of sand I have not come across on a course
