I sent a complaint regarding my sons christening event a couple weeks ago and I am bitterly disappointed to find it hasn’t even been acknowledged with an apology. Extremely unorganised and poor communication, I wouldn’t book an event here again.

We have just soent four nights at the Efordleigh and are happy to recommend it, especially to Golfers. Our room, (The belfry, No/1) was spacious -I think it's a family room - clean and comfortable although there were no toiletries, face flannel or bathrobes which we hired for £2.50 each. The staff were excelent at all times, especially dealing with a medical episode we unfortunately experienced. The food was not gourmet but was very tasty and the portions were large Newspapers were not available which was disappointing but the Spa facilities were brilliant.

Stayed here with family after finding online. After looking & reading website, plus TripAdvisor’s reviews I must admit I did expect a little more than what was delivered. Is a nice enough hotel, ideal for golfers on what is clearly a beautifully set & kept golf course - (wish I took my clubs). Our family room again was nice enough with 2 large beds, though bathroom whilst large is a tad dated. Swimming pool was nice but jucuzzis were dirty & steam room out of order during our entire stay. Are in bar one evening, food was okay, pool table again out of order during our stay. Breakfast was buffet, style with reasonable choice. We were asked to book breakfast time each day but were never asked for details when arrived so not sure why we had to book? Towards end of stay we didn’t bother. Staff were friendly, but walking around the grounds it does feel this place is lacking a bit of TLC & investment with walls crumbling around the car park, dated rooms, non functional amenities, tennis courts covered in thick moss, etc. For the money spent I did expect a higher level of services but all the same was nice enough for our stay as was no more than a base for our day trips out. If we were in the hotel for a full day perhaps it wouldn’t have been too great (if not golfing)
