We had great time at Lady Bay and would definitely recommend. Staff were good and golf course amazing. Have to say staggered no breakfast facilities, we had to drive into nearest town for brekky and found this very annoying.
Recently stayed here for 6 nights, the golf course is great, the restaurant and bar are good also but the rooms and the rest of the resort is where this place struggles. Our rooms carpet had stains, the balcony tiles were cracked/broken and our room had a really off Damp smell for a couple of days as well. There was no breakfast included as this had been cancelled due to COVID a month earlier but you could get lunch and dinner from the restaurant which seemed odd. The pool area has 6 sun lounges without pillows and very little surrounding it. To be honest, I would be happy to come again and play golf but not stay, it’s a 3 star resort at best that requires some upgrades across the rooms and facilities.
We have eaten here as a large group once or twice in the first week of January every year for almost 20 years. We have mostly had excellent service and great food off of a wonderful and varied menu. Whilst we accept that Covid may have bought about some changes, and we have a very large group, it does not excuse the extremely limited set menu of 4 very basic main meal choices and a set entree for a relatively exorbitant price pp of $45. We booked for 7.30pm. The last of our 5 tables were served their main meal at 9.15 pm. There was no apology. The reason we were told we had to have a set menu was due to group size and yet we were placed 10 per table and served 20 minutes apart!! The wine list, which we have tolerated in the past due to the great food and service, suddenly became limited and overpriced. Unfortunately, the service was also average, with no friendly engagement. The manager did communicate several times with the person who made our booking, but that failed to address the groups very obvious annoyance at the lengthy delay in food delivery and what was perceived as a deliberate rort with the set menu and pricing. Unlikely we will be back. So disappointing. …
Booked a table and was expecting a good feed as I’d played golf here before and everything looked good in the bar and restaurant. With these high expectations I was keen to see the ‘new’ menu. And that’s where it ended 😪 we ordered the arancini balls but they were cold and stodgy, a duck salad was also ordered for entree and the duck was over cooked. For mains it was a rump steak with chimichurri sauce - this was cooked to our liking and the sauce was nice. The other main was a Lime and Pepper Calamari - this was tough and chewy and hardly coated in lime and pepper - so disappointing. After looking forward to this evening it was certain spoilt by the food. The service was okay but nothing exceptional.
We dined here this week as a family, 5 adults and 3 young children and the food and service was exceptional. Great menu for all and the food was lovely. Not over the top prices, in fact both the food and wine was well priced. The bar was very busy and the restaurant was full, but the service was brilliant. Overall we should have dined here twice instead of eating at the Normanville Hotel. Great food, service and kangaroos for the little ones to watch. Couldn’t ask for more.
