Rating: 4.5 stars out of 57 reviews

What people say: In March 2022, a reviewer said: “We stayed a weekend at Thonock Park and played a couple rounds of golf and had dinner in the restaurant. The location is brilliant and the service from the check-in staff, shop pro and servers were superb.

“The food was top notch and the golf courses were in good condition for the time of year. The more traditional layout of Thonock was a good test of golf and the lakes course was a real challenge, and the rooms in which we stayed were first class.”
