Stayed on a one night deal of afternoon tea, dinner, bed and breakfast and threw in a round of golf as well. Dinner was fabulous, the room great, breakfast was what you expect in a hotel (full English etc) and the golf course tidy and challenging.

I was recommended La Grande Mare by a colleague. To be honest when I got there I was a bit wary as I had preconceptions of what a golf club resort would be like and the clientele. I could not have been more wrong. The staff were friendly and the place was busy but this did not affect the service....

We were upgraded to a studio room for our one night on a tennerfest special. Room was spacious, pool and steam room fine and the genuine tennerfest dinner was wonderful value....the best moules I have had in many a year. Wine prices reasonable. So good we have decided to return next month to repeat the experience.

We have taken full advantage of Tennerfest and for us, LGM is the best of all, and there are many other good 'uns. 3-courses for a tenner, a good menu, delicious food and decent portions, delicious fresh bread and butter, proper linen table cloths and napkins, and professional and attentive service.

Went for tennerfest,food was excellent and it turns out good value given the low price for the offer. Service was excellent until it got a little more busy and then we had to wait longer for most things. We ended up skipping a final drink and walked to the front to pay the bill rather than wait for a waiter....
