Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa is a sprawling 4-star property set in 200 acres of parkland on the outskirts of Southport. It's 35 minutes' drive along the coast from Liverpool, and is less than 10 miles from Crosby Beach, where you'll find 100 of Antony Gormley's cast-iron statues looking out over the bay.

The popular golf club buzzes with activity, thanks to a championship 18-hole course that incorporates pot bunkers, woodland and a number of tricky water hazards. Greener golfers can test their skills at the PGA practice facilities, and there's a challenging links-style par-3 course. Non-golfers can take a dip in the 20-metre indoor pool, unwind in the health club's sauna or work out at the gym. Head upstairs to sample the popular spa, which offers massages, facials and rasul mud treatments, and has a separate thermal suite, sauna, steam room and foot Jacuzzis (supplements apply).

There are two restaurants to choose between. Expect steaks, hearty classics and golf-course views at the newly refurbished Fairway Grill, where the ingredients are locally sourced and portions are large. For more casual fare, including bar food, sandwiches and jacket potatoes, there's the Fairway Bar.

Contemporary rooms all have air conditioning and free Wi-Fi, and the higher categories offer bottled water and views over the golfing greens.

Other Comments
The room had a faulty air conditioning unit that kept rattling throughout the night. We reported it the engineer was meant to of attended and fix it but the second night was just as bad if not worse. We mentioned it on checkout but the receptionist merely said oh.

Other Comments
Several minor issues: Had to ask for wine which was supposed to be available on arrival. Room safe not working and maintenance staff could not repair or replace. Waited over 45 mins for starter at meal. Bill was incorrect. Breakfast was not hot. All issues (apart from breakfast) were reported to the customer service manager who was apologetic and promised to address each fault.

Other Comments
Very few people in hotel on Christmas Eve. No ambiance.Ordered hot snacks for lunch in bar. After 30mins brought out my sons freshly made baguette which looked nice. My partner and I ordered breakfast barms which were absolutely stone cold, had to be sent straight back so another wait. Dinner on Christmas Eve- a carvery 7-9pm. We dined at 7 45 and had to wait until ready. My partner tried the pork but left it as over done and not really hot. Staff were v nice but the food wasn’t even average. Hotel nice but kitchen service really lets it down. Everything totally self-serve, even hot drinks just like a Premier Inn. Gone way down market

My only comment is the package was advertised as bed and breakfast with a 3 course meal, bottle of wine with the option of £24 per head allowance. We were told that during the festive season only a 2course was available with no other options. Still enjoyed
