A group of us stayed in the Garden Apartments at the K Club and were really impressed with the standard of accommodation and the excellent breakfast in the morning. The Reception staff were all very helpful and the golf club staff were friendly and attended to our needs. Hotel lives up to its reputation.

Stayed with other golfers in early May. We were four to an apartment with use of the hotel and two clubhouses. Apartments were just ok but in need of refurbishment and updating. Not five star. Weather was very poor for first day which meant that planned buggies could not be used. Golf courses are good despite the weather. Food in...

This review is written by a non- golfer. We stayed 2 nights in the hotel. The grounds are amazing. Very well kept and great for walking. The hotel is old-style Downton Abbey style, but felt a bit like lacking in personality and ambience. It does not feel 5 star compared to other 5 star hotels. Rooms - nice and spacious,...

My company used this venue for a recent conference,all I can say is if you are looking for a 5 star venue with 5 star service then look no further,this venue ticks every box. From arrival to departure nothing is a problem for the staff. Excellent place for business or a personal stay.
