Old Thorns Manor Hotel Golf & Country Estate

Longmoor Road, Liphook GU30 7PE, UK – 01428 724555

I can honestly say one of the best Golf courses ! have ever played! But that may just have been because I beat my younger brother "Stephen Chipp" i 2 games out of 2!!! 'm just putting his name her to shame him. Unlucky Steve!!! The ladies in our lives were booked in to the spa and we were reliably informed that the spa was "lovely" Hotel was great, food was very good and the service from the staff was professional but also with a bit of personality so it didn't feel too stuffy! The package we booked was for only a quick break and my only complaint is that we didn't have enough time there! Really great work guys and we will definitely be back again after my brother has finished licking his wounds!

We visited Old Thorns for a golf weekend with two rounds, one on Saturday and one on Sunday, with dinner, breakfast and a nights stay. Our first round tee time was at 2pm and we were unfortunately caught behind some slow play leaving a long round ahead. Once finished we had a great carvery dinner and had fun drinking in the sports bar and champagne lounge. Great drink selection and the staff in all these areas were kind and helpful. The rooms were great with everything we needed. All very clean and tidy. The second round of golf was earlier and we got round very quickly. The course was in great condition, other than the greens, which were going under their annual maintenace, so understandably a bit slow and bobbly.

Metro Inns A3

A3 Nourthbound, Liphook GU30 7TT, UK – 0845 055 5555

Stayed at this motel for one night. What it has going for it is price, £45 for the night. The room was quite large & there was ample parking. On the downside there was a constant noise from the main road & the whole motel was tired & run down. If you want a cheap place to stay then its OK but don't expect too much. Also on the plus side the person on reception was very helpful

Lovely friendly staff and decent rate and location. But a bit run down. This is an old Travelodge i believe and can do with a revamp. But staff are professional and friendly. I would stay there again.

Bohunt School

Longmoor Rd, Liphook GU30 7NY, UK – 01428 724324

I am a Chinese myself and I can tell that in the documentary some of the remarks did catch the point well but the others are ridiculous. ie, we do put up images of famous persons (along with their proverbs) including Confucius, Issac Newton, Galileo and so on. BUT we also dive into the difficult Confucianism instead of knee down to him. In my opinion,education nowadays in China is more modern than traditional. Also the 'Chinese teacher' commented that "in Chinese education individualism is not permitted", which sounds too absolute. But I do admit there is more collectivism in Chinese one. In some ways I doubt what the conparison was. At the beginning they aimed at comparing final marks (which did not seem proper) but when we see kids suffering we might have been off track due to sympathy. Anyway I can't tell which is just better. There are always pros and cons.

I think it was really a bold attempt to compare the teaching methods of Britain and that of China. Both the Chinese teachers and the Bohunt School is indeed worth being respected for their efforts. But in my opinion, Chinese traditional teaching ways and British ways just like chalk and cheese. The forming and application of Chinese teaching ways is due to the culture of Confucian and the lack of educational facilities in most areas of China. And the goal of Chinese education is getting high score instead of cultivating imagination, creativity thinking or critical thinking. Personally, I prefer British way which gives more freedom and spaces to students.
