Thank you for booking and organising this splendid weekend at Five Lakes. Both golf courses were brilliant and we were very well received by the Golf Pro. He was very friendly and helpful, especially when it came to juggling buggies about to ensure we had one for our final round on Sunday.
The ladies went into Colchester shopping on Saturday. The Spa facilities were first class, rivalling our local “Ballentines” gym”.
The accommodation and all other facilities could not be faulted. Once again thank you very much.
Would we go there again. Most probably. Would we recommend to others. Definitely. Would we use you guys again. Most certainly and look forward to dealing with you again in the future. Kind regards.
I just wanted to drop you a note to say a big thank you to all the team at yourgolf travel for arranging our 3 day trip to Five Lakes. The venue is first class and true value for money. Thanks again,
Some feedback on our golf trip to Five Lakes, Essex last weekend. We all found both the courses to be very good and challenging for all of us even the low handicappers. The hotel was excellent – great rooms, first class facilities and the menu was very good with the self service / all you can eat approach. We certainly would recommend both yourselves and the hotel / golf to friends (with the warning about the bar prices). Hope to be speaking with you again soon, thanks,
Our golf break at the Five Lakes resort was enjoyable in every way from start to finish and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend either the venue or Your Golf Travel. Your service was exemplary and we felt like we were looked after very well. This helps to put people at ease throughout a golf holiday so top marks for that!
The hotel was easy to find and we were welcomed warmly and offered wine or soft drinks which we thought was a really nice touch. The hotel was being refurbished but the staff did everything possible to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Our room was quite lovely and it had everything one needs on a golf trip. The beds were huge and extremely comfortable and in general the room was clean and maintained to a good standard. All of the food we sampled was of a high standard but unfortunately the staff in the restaurant were a bit on the slow side!
I’m told both of the golf courses were splendid and in fantastic condition and all of the staff involved with the golf club were helpful and friendly. In fact my husband hasn’t stopped talking about the courses since so they must have made a good impression!
The spa was really nice and my husband also enjoyed it after his rounds of golf. He said it was the perfect place to relax after a round.
All in all we had a great time and we would go there again.
We had a good golf break. The rough was brutal but the weather made up for that.
We had one slight Hiccup with the Bar not knowing of our rolling lunch but we sorted that.
We all had a really good time at Crowne Plaza Resort Colchester – Five Lakes.
Here's a brief rundown of our time there.
Check-in was efficient and we were all able to check in early into our upgraded Village rooms. The Professional was ok, but there was a lack of golf gear in his shop. Some clothing but hardly any clubs. Not much in the way of snacks choc etc as there is no halfway hut. The facilities for other Sports in the hotel are very good, but I think they miss an opportunity to up-sell these to their guests.
Changing rooms were a bit scruffy, lots of used towels left around. Evening meals and breakfast were good in the Hotel, but a bit busy.
Golf courses have a great layout but suffered from a bit of TLC. Which is often the case and Hotel/courses vs Members courses. Greens putted well, but there was no definition of fairways from semi rough and again around the greens. It all blended into one another. This applied to both courses.
But overall, we had a really enjoyable stay. Thanks again to YGT for the offers they gave us, and we will book again.
