A group of 16 have just returned from 2 nights at the Abbey Golf Club June 2011.
The Hotel provides good value for money, the 4 star modern hotel was clean, bright and spacious with friendly staff and our room was very comfortable. The linen and towels were changed every day and the room was well equipped and even had a flat screen TV with Freeview. The Bar had a good selection of drinks and the bar staff were very friendly and a warm welcome was received, in particular from the night porter. There was some outside seating on the patio which was comfortable and inviting in the warm evenings.The Restaurant was nicely laid out, the food was served hot and quickly and the inclusive set menu was varied enough for a short golf break, you can also choose off the set menu but this may include an additional cost. For breakfast you had a choice from an extensive continental and full English buffet and the staff were all very attentive, especially the Restaurant Manager.
The Leisure Centre was situated adjacent to the Golf Shop and it had a good fitness suite, sauna, jacuzzi and a decent size swimming pool. The Golf shop had a limited stock but carried the essentials and the staff were very friendly and helpful. As far as the hotel and the facilities go everything on offer at the Abbey Golf and Country Club is makes it a great destination for a weekend golf holiday.
The golf course is mature and picturesque creating a good challenge for all standards of golfers. The marshal greeted us on the first day and clearly explained the rules. The course was in very good condition when we visited. There were a couple of extended walks from Greens to Tee’s through the Housing Estate to holes 2 and 10 but everything was clearly signposted.
The 19th hole was raised above the 18th Green creating a superb viewing point to see your fellow Golfers struggle up the last hole! The Abbey Golf Club is ideally located just a few miles from the M42, overall we had a great golf trip and would consider a return visit in the future. Over the last few years we have been on golf breaks to The Bank House, Draycote Hotel, Whitefields Golf Club and Staverton Park.
Abbey Golf and Country Club matched these for quality and we would recommend any of these venues for a weekend golf holiday or as part of an extended golf tour.
This is the fourth year I have booked with your Golf Travel and yet again I was provided with first class service. The knowledge and efficiency of the staff at your Golf travel are second to none and I’m sure we will be back in touch for many years to come.
