It was nearly 15years since I last stayed at the hotel so I didn't know what to expect. The rooms was very clean and spacious and the staff were eager to help when required. Food,16 golfers all received starters, mains and deserts on a timely manner. Hotel still a good 7/10 but probably needs a little TLC.
