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.
