I think my title sums it up really. Booked in a bit of a hurry for a Saturday night stay before spending Sunday in Shrewsbury. The price was a bit steep but I thought it was a good hotel and must admit I had been planning to stay for a while and it was my wife's birthday. Room was nice. Well furnished, plenty of space and comfy bed. But for the price we didn't get a set of drawers. Not much use for a longer stay. We got on open hanger arrangement rather than a wardrobe. We didn't get a wide range of teas. Most of this wouldn't bother me much if I had paid Premier Inn or Travelodge rates. But I was paying twice this! At about 4 in the morning we got a humming sound. We were above the restaurant so presumably it was a fan. The humming set off a rattle inside a wall. So that was the end if our good night's sleep. We chose to eat in the main restaurant and have to say the food was great. Not too much of a choice but.. We attempted to eat in evening at the Terrace Bar which had a much broader choice but it closes at either 6 or 7 depending on who you speak to. We noticed online that the Terrace did a good range of breakfast items but we're told it was closed on Sunday! So we packed our bags and headed off to Shrewsbury for a great breakfast in The Bull pub. Fantastic. So I would say that for the price, we were expecting a Waitrose or M&S experience and ended up with something like Tesco experience but without the value for money. I gave the hotel some feedback as per above and they were very pleasant in their response. I don't think I will rush back but opt for a Premier Inn in Shrewsbury or maybe the Bull.
Organised a golf trip for 24 golfers. Both golf courses were excellent. Each hole was different with some really memorable holes on the original Hawkestone Course. Staff and food in hotel and clubhouse was very good and plentiful, also good choice of real ales. This is unusual in most golf hotels we have visited. Everyone had a superb weekend. I have only given it 3 stars as the hotel is old and tired but very clean, I understand there has been a major investment into the hotel recently. We shall see in October as I am returning with 24 golfers in October 2017 as we enjoyed it so much last year.
17 old boys returned to Hawkstone Park to play our annual Ryder Cup event . The hotel rooms have all been tastefully refurbished and updated since our previous visit c. 3 years ago. We received a very warm welcome and the service in the restaurant was excellent. Good selection on the dinner menu and the buffet breakfast was very good. The clubhouse is great and the Golf pro shop staff were all very knowledgeable and again very welcoming. With regards the golf courses, we played Hawkstone on Sunday, the course was presented superbly, wonderful testing greens . Unfortunately the weather was against us on Monday and we were rained off. But again credit to the staff in the pro shop they kindly returned our buggy fees , even though we decided not to play. Everyone in our group would recommend this venue for both its hospitality and great golf .
Two not long but good golf courses,hotel is good,staff great,bar prices ok for a hotel eg £4 for a pint of cider,breakfast is OK food at night was very nice.all in all well worth a visit.As stated before mainly male golfers.
on the plus side two great courses very good food great staff on negative side no storage space in my room no coat hangers in wardrobe The worst golf buggies I've ever hired all petrol fumes all the time and filled with kangaroo petrol
We spent the weekend here to tour the countryside around Shropshire. We chose well, the bedrooms were very well furnished and comfortable unfortunately the water pressure was low and the shower would not work The dining room was well positioned looking out to the gardens and the food was delightful ,the staff very attentive, all-round excellent value ,if you play golf it's right outside the front door of the hotel
For some time now I wanted to go to see the Hawkstone Follies and it was a last minute decision to book a room at the Hawkstone Park Hotel nearby. The hotel has recently been renovated and there is still a bit of scaffolding about but the suite we had booked was very pleasant and sunny with a large balcony overlooking the golf course. Evening meal was included in the price and the food was excellent and very well presented and we really enjoyed our meal despite the noisy background from a nearly fully booked dining room with golfers on a special golfing deal. Breakfast next morning could not be faulted; it was self-service but you could order various other things from the waitress, such as salmon and scrambled eggs, just to mention one item. The only reason I did not give the Hawstone Park Hotel the top rating was our arrival when we were left standing by an empty reception for nearly 15 minutes having been told by another member of staff that the receptionist was making up a room and ‘won’t be long’ When the receptionist eventually returned we realised that it was the same young lady who had left the building when we arrived and was obviously aware that we had come to check in and after the rather long wait we expected an smile and an apology for having left us waiting but this was not to be. No apology and no smile, just a brisk question to ask us for our name and she gave us the key to our room and told us were to go. Maybe some staff training in hospitality would change this in future.
Stayed here with my husband for 2 rounds of golf, dinner, bed and breakfast. Both golf courses were excellent and in great condition, the green keepers have done a great job. The hotel rooms have been refurbished and are compact but very well presented and a good standard. The biggest disappointment for us was the restaurant - the setting and food were good, but the only other diners were large groups of male golfers. Whilst recognising this is a golf venue, it is not really suited to couples who golf. Staff were generally pleasant, particularly the bar staff. The welcome from reception was disappointing - we arrived at 12.30 (check in is 2), and decided to register our arrival as our tee time was 2pm. We were greated by being told we wouldn't be able to get to our room - there was no welcome, asking how our journey was etc, so not very friendly as a first impression. They also got our bill wrong on check out, and we had to change rooms as the electrics in the shower were exposed. All in all though the golf course was great, as well as the rooms, and would recommend for groups.
Visited Hawkstone two weeks ago, after a lapse of 18 years!! Two excellent golf courses in perfect condition (Greens on Championship course - so fast!) The Hotel is currently under refurbishment, but this was not detrimental to our stay. In my opinion, the new owners are definitely going on the right direction. The food could not be faulted, buffet breakfast too die for (awesome sausages) and dinner on the table d'hôte menu well above average (one exception - bin the honeyed sauté potatoes!). The staff are all top notch - very friendly everywhere). Only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars; the room was a bit claustrophobic, but, spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds... I am now finding fault for the sake of it!! - just amended rating to 5-stars...we will be back, see you soon.
Stayed here with some friends for a short golf break. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised that the hotel was in the middle of a make over. Work is still underway but what has been completed is a significant improvement on what we saw last year. The reception and the bedrooms we stayed in have been redesigned, redecorated and given a new look and feel and I thought it was great. I understand that there are plans for further improvements which will only add to the comfort and pleasant experience. We have been going to this hotel for a number of years and many of the staff are long serving and recognised us and welcomed us on arrival. Every member of staff was friendly, helpful and cheerful which is a credit to them and the management. As golfers we had breakfast and dinner included in our package. I ate a typical English breakfast (only because I don't normally) which was fresh and plentiful. For dinner There was more than sufficient choice to meet all tastes I loved the black pudding and egg starter and the pork belly main course. We are already planning next years trip and would definitely stay here again. Oh and As for the golf, I played two of my best rounds of the year so I was happy with that. The two 18 hole courses are excellent.
