Sadly we had an horrid stay here. We visited the area and stayed here for 1 night. At around 60 pounds we thought it looked nice, but sadly it wasn’t worth 6 pounds.

Our main problem was the room - lots of issues and faults - to the extent we didn’t get much sleep at all. The general staff were nice, but when we have feedback when we checked out the management staff were very rude indeed.... it sounds like we caught one of the owners/brothers on a bad day, but no excuse.

Such a shame

Stayed for the 2 nights with breakfast and unlimited golf deal , basic but good value.
Sarah and the team looked after us and we enjoyed it for the second year running
Really need to get a local pub( within a few miles) on board with deals/discounts or even FREE taxi fare for evening meal/drinks as the pub the Black Bull next door is still closed and no sign of it opening up again.
suggest the Kaye Arms or the British Oak both good pubs and good food

We arrived at the hotel having driven from Bristol to find we couldn't get my husband's wheelchair into either of the two "accessible" rooms (one was the designated accessible room) the latter room access requires getting up a 4 inch kerb (no dropped access available unusual in my experience for a golf establishment) across a short pavement area and then another 4 inch step into the room doorway. The pavement area is not quite wide enough to turn/manoeuvre a wheelchair 90 degrees and a ramp not being able to straddle the step up from the parking level to the step into the room. Our own specialist suitcase ramp would not have coped with this either. The bed in the disabled room is a double being two divans braced together horizontally with no clearance for a hoist underneath. You would need 6 elephant feet to raise the bed and we only had 4 with us! The family room has a 4 inch step which could be ramped but then has a 90 degree narrow dog leg entrance into the room which you cannot physically turn the wheelchair into either a manual or, as we have, an electric chair. The young lady Sarah on reception was so sorry that we had been let us down and was very helpful in trying to get us alternative accommodation. Sarah couldn't have done anything more other than with a magic wand. She also called us the following morning to see if we had got on alright at the other hotel we had managed to find) which fortunately we had. Also disappointing that the owner when making the booking in December was telling us that guests ate at the pub next door but had not told us it had been closed since last July for renovation work!! My husband who had been looking forward to a pint and a meal there, as he had been to the pub on a number of occasions in the past, was very disappointed. Nothing wrong with the location and the rooms seemed to be quite good from what we saw just not what we required. So very disappointed that the access facilities were not suitable even when the management had been advised that we had a large electric wheelchair and that we would be bringing our own hoist with us. Being creative comes naturally now but physical barriers are sometimes insurmountable and to be also told that the pub was closed was the final blow although apparently there is a good Italian restaurant that delivers! I am sure this hotel would be a lovely venue and wouldn't have any qualms staying there on a different trip but sadly just not suitable on this occasion. Hopefully this will be helpful for anyone else who needs a specific level of accessibility as even the public rooms have small steps for access.

My second stay this year and I can honestly say I wouldn’t stay anywhere else when visiting in the future. Rooms are clean and spacious, staff are friendly. There is a easy access to taxi services. Couldn’t have asked for more.

To be honest I wasn’t expecting great things for this little guest house but it was a great little place and the young lady on reception was fantastic and she even served up a great breakfast. I left here pleasantly surprised and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it
