Played the hotel and the Old in successive days and to be honest both as good as each other. The Hotel (please think of a better name) is in my opinion the most under-rated course in Britain & Ireland. Played end of Sept amd the greens were like lightening. Many great doglegs, elevated testing greens with great run-off areas (similar to Deal) - all-in-all a good challenge. For a weekend trip 36 at the Hotel and Old sandwiched between ten pints of the black stuff in Dublin is very, very hard to beat.
