Have stayed several times over the last 3 years when visiting daughter at the uni. Stayed this Saturday with my wife. The photos alone promise a great location and views, but it's the service which makes the difference. They remember your name, they look after you, it's all very pampering. Having the chef in charge of the hotel means the... More

Getting to Nanteos can be challenging, especially if you depend on sat-nav and fail to notice the signs showing the way to the small road that eventually leads to the mansion. But when you get there, you'll be happy. We enjoyed three very nice days at Nanteos and found that the welcome that we received when arriving set the standard... More

I am a recent guest and stayed at the mansion for two nights. The location is fabulous as was the view and amenities of the Ystwyth Suite. Staff welcoming and professional and created a relaxing environment. Food was yummy. Looking forward to a return visit.

As soon as we saw this hotel we knew it was ideal for what we had in mind. We have just held a wedding there for which we obtained exclusive use, which in terms of the quality we wished to build in to the event was exactly the right choice.The staff, front of house, kitchen and housekeeping were absolutely superb,...

The hotel is an imposing manor house situated in beautiful grounds. All looked good for a pleasant stay as I drove up just before 9pm on a beautiful evening. Having spend 11 hours on the road I needed a hot meal in a 5 star hotel. The polite young man on reception informed me that the kitchen was closed and... More

We took my aunt who was visiting for "TEA AND TOUR", and she loved it. The tour was about an hour and the guide was most informative, we then sat in the lounge and had a really perfect afternoon tea. The little sandwiches, all the biscuits and cake and then to finish off a great scone with jam and cream.... More

Let me get the small niggles out of the way first. On check in the previous occupants coffee pot was in the room and the flowers on the table in the restaurant were dead one night. Other than that the stay was perfect! The staff were very welcoming, showed me to my room, offered me coffee or tea & showed... More

We stayed at the Nanteos for one night and were bowled over by the surroundings and attention to detail. For such a grand and large place it felt very comfortable and welcoming. The staff were very attentive. Entertainment was provided by Dangerous Dave who is amazing. We ate from the Gourmet Tasting Menu which was excellent as was breakfast. We... More

We stopped by for coffee and cake one afternoon - it was a useful recce, as we'd often considered booking a room here as a treat. We were expecting something quite special from Nanteos, but there were several things that failed to impress - the clutter outside the 'lodge' at the approach to the hotel was unsightly; there were several...

We went to Nanteos for our wedding anniversary, the drive up to the house is fantastic and surroundings are also stunning! Was most disappointed to see dog poo on the drive and surrounding area. When sitting down for dinner in the evening the dog roamed into the dining room and was constantly ushered out! Staff felt alittle embarrassed and the... More
