Spent a week there, working, playing golf, jogging on the beach and enjoying the TLC of the team dedicated to making the whole thing a wonderful experience! Very pleasant reception, concierges, etc. For food, go to town for a short walk and variety, failing which the pub outside the side door will do the trick. Loved every minute of it.

Dear Guest, Thank you for leaving feedback on your recent stay with us. I was pleased to read you enjoyed your time with us so much, and that you jogged across to the West Sands beach.

Stayed here for 2 of the greatest days of my life. I could not wipe the smile off my face when I looked at the view from our room right out onto the Road Hole and the North Sea. What separates this property from other 5 star resorts is how well they combine every luxury you could ask for with...

Dear Guest, Thank you for continuing to support the resort so well. I was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us so much. What was disappointing was the welcome drink not being offered. This is most unusual, perhaps your check-in was quite early or late, or we were replenishing our temporary bar. I will certainly bring this...

My wife and I had a great stay at the hotel recently. Service, room and food were all first class. Stunning location at the side of the most famous golf hole in the world - what an outlook. We were fortunate to take advantage of an autumn rate offer which greatly enhanced the value of the stay. Will definitely return.
