Paul was a really good host. Being very flexible and helpful about us checking-in very late.
The accomodation was exactly what you see on the pictures.
Overall: Recommend highly, but do take note of the wifi problems!
Host: We didn't meet Paul, but he sent directions in advance and the other staff at New Forest were quite helpful.
House: I'm not sure how this listing qualifies for Airbnb, as it's really a hotel room at a golf course. That said, it was huge, comfortable and very modern -- full kitchen, reclining leather couches, even a back patio which proved very useful.
Bed: Clean and comfortable. Full closet in each bedroom. We slept very well.
Bath: Plenty of hot water and towels, but no toiletries.
Breakfast: Not included, and based on a glance into the dining room in the main building, we judged it out of our price range. However, the full kitchen made it possible for us to cook our own. There was even a dishwasher so we could leave the place tidy!
Wifi: Mysteriously, it worked perfectly as soon as we stepped OUT of the building. Anywhere on the grounds, no problem. Inside, not possible. I don't understand why this was so, and it made things rather difficult for us as we had some work obligations to meet and family to keep in touch with at home. We sat out on the patio for awhile, though the midges made that unpleasant as well.
Paul was very easily contactable and answered my questions perfectly. The location was stunning and we couldn't believe our luck when we walked in after a long day's cycle.
Really enjoyed our stay at the New Forest Estate. Apartments are warm, spacious and staff in the golf club are very friendly and helpful. We came during the Winter so we didn't get a great opportunity to see much of the grounds. However, I'd imagine this is beautiful during the summer.
Only complaint is that I felt the pictures give a slightly misleading image of the actual apartments that guest's stay in. The apartment we stayed in was definitely smaller/ less nice than the one used in the pictures. Nonetheless, apartment was more than good enough and still had all the major things you would need i.e. kitchen, dining room, living room etc. Overall, really nice time and would definitely come back.
This facility is magnificent! It is a five star Hotel/Golf course with independent, beautifully furnished apartments with complete kitchens ... although who would want to use the kitchen when the restaurant serves up delicious and surprisingly inexpensive meals. The beds are the most comfortable we had during our visit to Ireland. Our only regret is that we stayed only one night. Also, the grounds are unbelievable. It is an elegant estate. We will be back.
New Forest Estate was fantastic. The description on the web site was absolutely correct, gorgeous area, lovely and quiet, and the apartment was very nicely appointed. Paul was great, very casual and easy going.
