We recently went on a 'golfing' weekend and booked into the Rosebud Country Club and Fairways Resort. This place is the least like a 'resort' that we have seen in a long time. We got a last minute deal on the web and had high expectations of the place given the high room rate.
The room was dark and cold, no natural sunlight. The furniture is all 'mismatched' and looks look it was from an 'op shop'. The outdoor patio is a piece of concrete with healthy weeds growing through the peebles and green slime everywhere. The King size bed was comfortable but the cleanliness of the rooms and bathroom were not what we expected for this cost of accommodation. From recollection we paid around $230-280 per night. Unfortunately we had drunken noisy neighbors who kept us awake for most of the night (appreciate the Motel has no control over the quality of its guests) It was a busy weekend with a wedding on so no there rooms to swap to. We ate in the restaurant. The food and service were average and they were clearly struggling to deal with wedding guests and resort guests. It took over 2 hours to get 2 courses.
All in all the accommodation and food experience was disappointing.
The golf course and the staff were friendly and accommodation. The course is a nice one for social players and we thoroughly enjoyed that part of the weekend.
Rosebud is a pretty area and worth the drive there but in all honesty cannot recommend this accommodation. It was grossly overpriced for the quality it delivered. We also heard the 'drunken neighbors' also complaining about the standard versus the cost!!
