Recent guest reviews

As we enjoyed the previous years New Years Eve celebrations so much, we decided to book for this year after the refurbishment of the hotel. Once again we were not disappointed. the food and efficiency of the staff were outstanding as was the room we stayed in. The entertainment was good, but did not measure up to the previous year, and on the stroke of midnight was a bit of an anti climax as we were expecting it to be a little more exciting. The rooms allocated to us and our friends were superb only to be found they must have been above the music as the noise continued until 1 00am However, it did not stop us from an enjoyable and pleasant evening with our friends.

I booked for a party of eight for the new year celebration what a great night we had. Food excellent Michael Bouble tribute by a lovely young man the music for dancing good lots of happy dancers! The rooms provided were really comfortable cosy and warm followed next morning by an excellent breakfast My party want to,book for next year!! The care and attention to betail provided by Hannah to me was most appreciated Well done to all concerned Mabel Dyas

One night Sunday Driver trip. 2 rounds of golf, dinner, bed and breakfast. Great value as always with these deals. Having two contrasting but both decent golf courses is always a bonus for a quick break. Massive bacon roll on arrival in the clubhouse, which has a massive bar area on the upper floor overlooking the course. Smooth visit to the pro shop to check-in, fairly slow round on the Hawkstone course with some very quirky holes. Good atmosphere in the clubhouse bar afterwards. Over to the hotel. We had a twin room on the first floor, just to the left of reception as you look at it. Recently refurbished, it was well-appointed if a little small. Bar area was pretty good and lively on a Sunday evening. The dining room was very busy but once inside the food was nice and service good. Back to the bar and then a decent night's sleep. Breakfast was excellent. Buffet style but freshly cooked and hot full English. Have to compliment the bacon, top quality! Championship course on the Monday offered a different test, more American in style with some punishing water features! Overall, as usual with the Sunday Driver deals, incredible value for a golf break. Decent hotel, nice food and varied course. Would return.

Excellent rooms kept to a high standard of decor and cleanliness, food and service again a very high standard. Golf courses in fantastic condition Hawkstone course is my personal favourite, would like to thank all the staff for making me and brother in law's visit brilliant. I'll definitely be booking another golf weekend very soon😁😁😁😁

The hotel was nice (and indeed the reception staff very helpful) but their approach to business in the fact they won't take a booking of around 30 rooms seems a little backward and totally unhelpful, I wouldn't advise staying unless you're a golfer as clearly that's all they are interested in putting you up!

Having read a few reviews on here involving my wedding I would just like to give my opinions. The food was ok. all be it no where near the quality we tasted when we were invited in to have a menu tasting. And items had changed without us being notified. So may be this should be addressed. Don't give a fantastic trial if it will not taste like that on the day. (Plus the groom's chicken ceasar salad contained no chicken haha) I have noticed two reviews below from the same family and would like to add that the veg was not cold and was cooked nicely as we had asked it to be. The reason one of the reviewers did not firstly receive a vegetarian meal is because she did not send back and RSVP with any food requirements on it. She asked about it 2 weeks before the wedding to which we told her it can't be done. My mother in law said she told her this, and yet she still complained once her food was brought out and asked for a different meal. No wonder it will have water in if you have to defrost and cook something that quickly! So I think getting on hawkstone back about this is wrong as they have done all we (as the bride and groom asked) Yes I agree the young girls skirt was very short. But she was young, if they had a problem they should of said something to someone on the day, or to her - no body else had a problem haha. I drank coke alot and I had no problem with it. But there was alot of guests (not only wedding) in the hotel. Bags don't last forever and sometimes problems happen. No biggy lol. So down to a correct review. Richard (I think) was FANTASTIC! The day would NOT have run half as smoothly as it did if he wasn't there. Couldn't of thanked him enough. Brilliant service. We had a lovely day and evening. Although I am very disappointed that our wedding topper was lost!! And whenever I have rang or mentioned it on Facebook I end up with a voicemail left that I can then never get in contact with whoever left it. And I'm almost certain that the new wedding coordinator did not like us very much haha. We begain We notice all the weddings that have been held in your venue being mentioned.. expect ours? Lol We booked out wedding under the old contract. The new coordinator was adamant on leaving things out/charging extra for stuff/not planning things properly. This was very stressful for us during planning but then it may have been because we had a different contract to which she was now doing. All in all not a bad experience and I would do my wedding all over again. I loved it! Thanks to all involved x

It's fantastic to see Hawkstone returning to its former glory years, the new owner is investing heavily. The tournament was great, my team enjoyed the day. I have been visiting Hawkstone since I was a junior taking lessons from Mr Lyle, its nice to see someone loving the venue again. Having visited with golfing groups there over the years, it's nice to see the hotel & resort returning to its glory years! I will be definitely returning next year with some groups!!

Despite its ad-hoc appearance, the refurbished hotel offers very good quality accommodation and service. My room was excellent and the new fittings, such as the digital shower, showed a considerable improvement from my previous visit (sone years ago). Our group were well catered for and our evening meal although small in quantity, was very well presented with attentive and quick service from the staff. Our golfing experience should be set against the background of a period of fairly wet weather which prevented the use of buggies.The Hawkstone course, on its sandy base played very well and for late September was in reasonable condition. The same cannot be said, however, for the Championship course which was close to being in an unplayable condition. The fairways were waterlogged which led to balls plugging and being lost. We had to declare all the bunkers GUR as they were either full of water or compacted and muddy. In total contrast the greens were well drained and in excellent condition. I appreciate that the greenkeepers could not get their equipment on the course. In hindsight, I would have expected the Pro shop to have put the course out of play and offered us another round on the Hawkstone. The Championship course, with its series of lakes, presents a good golfing challenge and the two course package is well worth considering. I would hesitate to recommend it after any lengthy period of inclement weather. Two rounds of golf, bed, breakfast and evening meal for £120 represents excellent value for money and in fair weather would certainly return.

On arrival at the golf centre, 3 pints of Guinness ordered, this ran out after one pour, happens, however it took around one hour to get a barrel changed!! neither of the bar-staff seemed to know what to do. Then we were told although we could not access the rooms we still needed to check-in as the pre-order for dinner had to be completed. Not a problem but the pre-order was in the hotel reception, 200 yds away, so one or two at a time we had to leave the golf centre to do this. Surely the pre-order should be in the golf centre, given to the group lead and returned when complete? This would be much better for the customer right?? Then a bombshell, they had taken buggies off, thought it too wet, it was not that wet to be honest, a little over protective maybe but the GK's prerogative. So electric trolleys then? no, got none! but they do have pull trolleys, no straps to stop the bag falling off though! A most tiring and difficult round of golf followed, the golf was ok but endlessly picking the bag up and placing it back on the trolley was a little annoying! If the business is serious about attracting golf breaks then it should be looking at ways to manage such situations, investing in a good stock of electric trolleys or installing buggy paths in the more troublesome areas. Evening dinner was not bad to be honest, although we were advised that where it said chips on the menu, this would be potatoes as they had ran out of chips!!! mid-day Friday? Morrisons is still open! (other supermarkets are available :-) ) Several of us paid the surcharge for a steak, the steaks were good quality and it would appear cooked to requirements, however only one person actually got a steak cooked as asked? All the different levels of cooking were out there on the table but not with the right people, service issue maybe?? Bar wise later in the evening was good however, Guinness on! goo, friendly staff and prices quite reasonable. Bedrooms, although a little small, have all you need and presented well, good showers however, several of our group had issues with slow draining of the bath. Breakfast, ok.... Unfortunately the same situation arose the following day regarding the golf, no buggies, no electric trolleys, so my trip was cut somewhat short as I decided not to put myself through the 18 hole fight with the 'quality' pull cart!! Overall this venue has the potential to be very good, some attention to detail, staff training, procedure changes and investment in electric trolleys / buggy paths would address pretty much all of it.

Having been invited to a family wedding held here. I was so disappointed by the lack of standards. The staff were unproffessional. Some not knowing what they were doing and others that needed to be dressed more appropriate for family occasion. The one waitress was dressed more appropriate to a night out instead of serving meals. Very off putting seeing her bottom when bending over tables. The food was not much better. Tasteless soup starter. Cold limp veg and lumpy instant gravy for main. And mush in a glass for desert. Also the bar staff struggled to get the mix right on thier pumped mixers. 3 attempts from different bars to get a coke that wasn't flat or soda water with a hint of coke. It is such a shame when the bride and groom have paid out hard earned money for thier special day only to be let down. Hawkstone if you want to be rated as a top rate venue. Look at retraining your staff and giving the service you promise.
