    New Year's Eve 2016

    In general: My husband and I stayed with another couple overnight for the New Year's Eve Gala Dinner and dancing. The room where the event was held was perfectly decorated which created a lovely ambiance and the DJ team was spot on and played music for everyone's taste which reflected in the packed dance floor. We were placed with some other people to make up a table of 10. What luck! We all got on so well which made the evening even more memorable. So Rayleigh gang a huge thank you. Our group of 4 had a fantastic night. In general the staff from reception to the waiters offered 10 out of 10 service. So thank you all.Location and surroundings: Great location as it only took is half an hour to get to the Hotel from our house. Service: Execellent service. The staff were very efficient, friendly and helpful. They did everything to commensurate the smooth running of the evening. Dining: The food was very tasty and wow not everyone gets the steak right but they did on the night. Sports and leisure: Did not use this facility on the night but have used it previously and it works well. Room: The bedrooms were spacious, clean and well designed and most importantly to noisy. The added touches of complimentary accessories di not go unnoticed.

    The room was clean and well appointed. Very modern with lovely views overlooking the golf course. Staff were very pleasant

    The hotel is undergoing some renovations which are a little disruptive and do spoil the overall ambience of the hotel but it was a minor inconvenience really

    My husband booked this hotel for my 40th birthday, he selected the executive room with 'updated furnishings, bathrobes, stunning views' none of which we had! First room we had been given was dirty, not updated furnishings or bathrobes! Stunning view, no! I complained (2 other families were complaining the same time as me) we got shown to another room exactly the same but less dust! The list is endless with our experience, I told the manager that service at a Travelodge far better, all this for £165. The hotel did not tell us in advance that part of spa not available, hotel is under going refurbishment to become the first Crowne Plaza resort in the uk!!!!! Not all of the rooms have been updated (we had an older style room even though confirmation from Booked.net of updated room!

    We were upgraded to an executive suite which had recently been refurbished. There were some minor issues with the bathroom fittings most of which were rectified very quickly. The room was peaceful, comfortable and had an excellent view. Although we were disappointed to discover that the Camelot Restaurant was closed for refurbishment we enjoyed the food and had three rounds of golf. All staff were couteous, helpful and efficient. A very enjoyable 4 night break.

    Room and facilities were fantastic and great value for money.

    Price of drinks was slightly expensive.

  • Older travelers

    The room was large, clean and comfortable with a lovely view over the golf course. Breakfast was first class. There was plenty of parking space. Our stay was very good value for money.

    The bathroom, although large and very clean, was slightly old fashioned and the range of toiletries somewhat limited. There was a restricted choice of evening meal - either a very good buffet @ £20.00 or a limited a la carte option (the restaurants were undergoing refurbishment during our stay).

    There seems to be a problem with getting a Taxi from the hotel, but one was found eventually.

  • Couple

    The only thing we disliked about the hotel was the service at dinner, we had to wait over an hour for our main meals at dinner, despite the fact that the restaurant was only a quater full and there were staff wandering around staring into space.

  • Couple
    9.6

    very quiet. Great room for a good price. Not too many people on the golf course. Very spacous area.It was great to stay in the 'Village flats' about 1 min away from the main complex. It felt more like home than a hotel.

    The staff in general was great and very friendly. We could even book the timing for the cleaning. But the reception desk employees were slow and unfriendly. Except of one no one could give us recommendations where to eat.

  • Couple
    9.6

    Spending time in the swimming pool, steam room & jacoozi was really nice & relaxing, Beds are really comfy & breakfast (which was included) was delicious

    no complaints, getting to the swimming pool was quite confusing & wasn't sure whether to bring towells from our room or if there were towells available in changing rooms

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Staff were courteous and helpful

    The price of food was very high, portions were small and there were hidden extras eg. vegetables. the quality of the food served at breakfast was poor.One of the sweets on the menu was inaccurately described.
