We've stayed here a few times over the years as we have family in this area. This time we took up their Winter Special price which was great value for this quality of hotel. We actually prefer the standard rooms as they overlook the golf course, whereas the superior rooms are on the car park side. Room was very comfortable with everything we needed, and bathroom good. Our only issue was a group returning to their rooms at 2.30am (I believe there was a birthday function in the hotel that night) who were very loud and had no concept of other guests being asleep so woke us up with a start and no one could have slept through them. We have had this before here as the hotel is popular for parties.
Breakfast was good - we did go into the dining room only 10mins before breakfast was due to finish, and the hot food buffet was still loaded, but the pastries side was empty, so we felt we were only getting half our money's worth. Spoke to manager who explained that he could arrange for more pastries to be cooked but it would take 20mins and we didn't want to hang around that long. He therefore arranged for them to be brought to our room which did happen along with a pot of tea which was a very nice touch. They also credited us for one breakfast which was more than generous given the issue was resolved very satisfactorily.
We also ate lunch in their upstairs bar at the golf club end and the food was nice there. If you don't want the buffet breakfast its worth noting that the bar does bacon sarnies etc. We used the pool in the morning on the Monday and it was quite busy but lovely and warm for a relaxed swim. Sauna was out of action but steam room working as was Jacuzzi - although that was full of sand which was rather worrying!
