I booked the weekend for my sons 40th birthday as a present, to be shared with his best friend. Having paid a considerable cost for 2 nights stay including breakfast and 3 rounds of golf, I found the overall costs and promised facilities pricey and misleading.
This was booked over 3 months ago through an agency. It promised spa, swimming pool, gym, plenty of bars, even a bowling alley. But in reality without any word from the hotel or booking agency the spa and swimming pool area was closed for refurbishment!… The option of bars were minimal as the bar area in bowling alley was taken over by some high flyer on the Saturday evening, ensuring that it was as good as out of bounds to general public. After booking a bowling slot on the Saturday evening, this too was impossible, by the taking over of the alley area by afore mentioned high flying local celeb!..the only bar available was upstairs far from general area where we fancied sitting! Therefore zero facilities were sampled during our stay of 2 nights, 3 days… even the rounds of golf were slowed down and became frustrating after waiting on course for over 40 minutes on some holes due to in house competitions at times. The grounds promise good holes, but it looked tired and scruffy on some holes at times… some feedback would be good, especially after it was purchased as a surprise weekend present at a considerable cost !
