Just spent two nights in this fantastic hotel. The inn is lovely and the food was brilliant, many thanks to all the staff you couldn't have done anymore. Would definitely recommend this hotel and will be back.

A wonderful Inn with character. Reception and restaurant staff were very welcoming. Bedroom was spacious, clean, comfortable and with character. Very well located for the castle and town centre. I really enjoyed my time there and would definitely like to return.

The inn is absolutely gorgeous, the rooms are modernised but with that hint of historical beauty. The bed was lovely and firm which ensured a great night's sleep. Everything was to hand in the room including extra pillows, hair dryer, toiletries and towels. Breakfast was amazing, recommend the welsh breakfast highly. My only let down was that we tried to...

Thank you for the review. With regard to table booking it does get very busy, and we only offer table bookings for limited time slots.The reason for this is that it can get busy later in the evening and we are unable to hold tables back for bookings.Sorry we have tried many systems and ended back with this system ,...

Just enjoyed a three night stay. The room was delightful (we stayed in the Town House), the staff were welcoming, friendly, efficient and could not have been more helpful. The breakfast was fantastic value and choice. We dined two evenings in the restaurant with different dishes each time and all were top quality. This was our second stay at the... More

I stayed here with my girlfriend and we could not have been happier with the hotel, the staff, the food and the room. Everything about the inn is perfect, the staff made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We had dinner in the inn in the evening which was served fast, cooked...

All I can say is, if you are after a 'proper' Sunday lunch, very reasonably priced, served in very pleasant surroundings by very pleasant staff - look no further. There were 8 of us (including a 3 and 5 year old), everyone was catered for. We were seated in The Coach House and served with fresh local produce. A big... More

from arrival to departure the staff were great, room clean and the food excellent. We stayed in room 41 for two nights. a room that suited us as it catered for disabled persons. Breakfast was a good choice of food and we ate in the restaurant each evening, if you like mussels then this is the place to eat. Nothing... More
