    The service and attitude of staff were excellent. The golf stewards in particular went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The atmosphere and friendliness of the hotel was outstanding. We all regarded our break as one of the finest we have been on. I would thoroughly recommend the hotel to everybody. Excellent value for money. We shall return!

    Great location, great golf, great spa

    Food and service in roadhole restaurant not up to standard. Noise from function in conservatory kept my wife up as noise in room was loud

    Being on the Old Course itself, also the bed was very very comfortable and lots of pillows (which we love)

    A little pricey, but you get what you pay for.

    The room, the bath, the Cloudy Bay chardonnay, the Jigger Inn, the relaxation.

    nothing really - if was being picky the cooked breakfast could have been warmer. C

    Staff/ welcome/location/breakfast/spa - all execellent

    The actual room was very comfortable but we didn't sleep at all becuase of the noise. I know someone had to have the cheap rooms but ours was right next to the swimming pool air con. It was exceptionally noisy. Our room was absolutely boiling to the extent we had to open the window but didn't sleep at all because of the noise. This somewhat spoiled the expereince for us.

    I loved the Spa facilities the best and the little touches the hotel provided make a big diference to your stay.

  • Older travelers

    The room was very comfortable and facilities were superb.

    Appalling service in the Cocktail Bar which we had to leave without having our cocktails due to delay in taking order and then serious delay in providing the drinks ordered.

    It was nice and quiet. Hotel staff were very courteous and professional. Bed was comfortable. The offer of a drink on arrival and the bottle of water and tumbler that were left when they turned your bed down, were a lovely touch.
