Has all the trappings of a great hotel but fails to deliver. Staff obliging but generally lazy or badly managed. Food and Drink when it arrives is excellent. Golf courses awesome and worth going back for that but not sure we'd stay at the hotel again. MUST TRY HARDER PLEASE

Lovely well maintained grounds and a great family holiday spot great for golfers and lots of things for kids to do. However for a couple who does not gold it was not the best choice for us. we did go fishing and we spent some time at the roman baths which was nice and enjoyed the lovely breakfast.

An add on for my husband to play some golf. I thought the rooms were overrated - the Spa was excellent - the gardens beautiful. My husband throughly enjoyed playing on the golf courses & rated them highly.

I spent two nights at the Fancourt for a conference and I so wish I'd been able to stay longer to enjoy the pool and reacquaint myself with the game of golf. The breakfast buffet is absolutely splendid, particularly when enhanced by a cappuccino (rather than the normal coffee). Only little issue was the absence of wifi in the villa...
