We came here for Christmas Dinner and the resort did not disappoint! The staff were brilliant and the food was amazing. The resort itself is stunning and had a walk around scopping the place out. The golf course is pricey but was one of the best ones iv ever seen and would highly recommend coming here to anybody.

We spent 2 nights at Fancourt and had a wonderful experience. Right from the start effort was put into booking golf on The Links course and our every need was catered for. The room was really nice, the gardens are beautiful and the golf courses are outstanding. We had a really good stay at Fancourt and will definitely return!

Beautiful golf courses, in excellent condition. Plenty to do for non players. The spa facility was superb and the pool area very relaxing. Food and drink not overly expensive considering the standard of hotel. Carmen on reception was so helpful and obliged us with a beautiful room overlooking the putting area. Loved it.

It is an odd concept having an entirely fancy resort in the middle of an already nice town but if the rich and fabulous want it, then why not? The spa is lovely and the staff brilliant. It is an oasis of fancy things for the wealthy punter.

We were only here for a couples massage for the day, giving us the opportunity to use all their spa facilities, swimming pool and they served us champagne with chocolate truffles.

The overall experience we received here was amazing. The rooms were spacious and we even had our beds turned down at night with slippers by the side of the bed. Everything we could have asked it to be. Fabulous.

We stayed here on our honeymoon 12 years ago and it was one of our highlights so we were keen to return. Our room - a 1-bedroom garden suite - was sumptuous, beautifully decorated with a lovely small patio onto the garden area with the golf course beyond. We ate our evening meals in the club house (excellent bistro-type food),...

Upscale, well-appointed hotel and grounds, with 3 excellent golf courses, tennis, indoor and outdoor pools. Service was excellent and always pleasant. Rooms were ample but not over-the-top. Facilities convenient for moving around. Top-rated Links course is a 5-minute drive away, other two right at hotel. Links is extremely good and plenty tough! Food was probably a notch or two below...
