We have stayed here many times in the past, but this last weekend was very disappointing. The golf was as good as ever, possibly a bit overcrowded, but not too bad. However, we had, as always, booked a twin superior room. The beds had very soft springy mattresses which had springs poking up, so much so, that you could get... More

Great course and good value twilight rates .Good condition and some fun holes. Friendly members and all in all a good experience. We didn't use the catering so can't comment on the hotel. This is a great area to explore with golf clubs in your car.

Pleasant room and good access to golf. Watch out for the drunk from another party but not really a problem. Food outstanding but a real problem with heating the plates for some reason. Try the breakfst kipper but insist on a hot plate.

Really recommend this venue! Accommodation good but could do with some tlc. Food freshly cooked and hot, staff friendly. Golf course in good condition and open, bunkers quite difficult, compares to Lynx course.

Golf course has a superb layout, greens are good although a little slow due to the amount of rain. Rooms are very impressive and the restaurant was great with a good menu. We played two rounds with an overnight stay and will be coming back. Great value for a mini golf break.
