6/10 Good

Disappointing stay for such an iconic hotel
Comfortable hotel, great situation and views into the old course 18th fairway and green. Reception staff friendly and efficient. Breakfast - poor service, staff disinterested, 25 - 30 mins to get served. Ran out of basics despite not being busy. Dinner - first course dry and tasteless. Sent back and kitchen unable to provide a second attempt (despite the head chef being in the kitchen - presumably hiding in shame! ) waiting staff helpful and apologetic. We were not charged for the starter.
