Birmingham, Alabama
Reviewed 2 June 2015 via mobile

Went to this resort for a stay-cation & it was WONDERFUL. I have no complaints whatsoever. The breakfast was wonderful, room was clean & a nice size. The entrance way walking in is beautiful. The spa is on site however do book your spot well in advance because they fill up quickly. The noise level overall was minimal.

Dear kdb1908, WE LOVE your picture as it appears to be the rook of a castle which, you can probably tell would be right up our alley!

Ross Bridge is a beautiful resort! We stayed there for our fifth anniversary, and we could not have been more pleased. We had a corner room with a wrap-around balcony and lovely views of the golf course. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. We had breakfast at Brock's, and everything was delicious. We will definitely stay here again.

My family and I recently stayed a couple of nights at the Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa during the Memorial Day holiday. Overall we had a good experience.

My husband booked this hotel for my birthday weekend in March. I was very excited because we both had heard great things about the golf here and we both love to play golf.

Spent my birthday weekend at this great resort. It is a nice place to get away. It is very quiet and peaceful but still very convenient to a lot of attractions. Also really enjoyed the spa which offers a lot of treatment options.

My husband and teenage boys come here every year on Memorial Day weekend. We love this resort. We play golf, tennis and swim.

I have stayed at the Ross Bridge Renaissance many time on business. The facility is top notch-think Ritz quality. The food is rather average, however. Plenty good enough for a wonderful golf vacation. The golf course is fantastic, by the way. But the food could be better for business guests. The drinks are stingy and expensive.
