It is rare to find a restaurant where the quality of food and service totally exceed ones expectations. The Carlton Riverside is that exception. Anne Marie and Alan go the extra mile to ensure that the menu, food and wines are superbly balanced and that the dining experience is a meal to remember for all of the best reasons. If... More

Mary Ann and Alan Gilchrist have forgotten more about great food than most people will ever even know! Stunning, perfectly executed four courses with the most beautiful wines to match. Not a pinch of micro-cress, a miniature vegetable or out of season Peruvian asparagus or the like in sight. No stupidly shaped crockery, food with popping candy, nitrous oxide based... More

Having seen Mary Ann Gilchrist on The Great British Menu and liking her style of cooking we decided to book The Carlton Riverside's gourmet break for an anniversary treat. We were not disappointed. Mary Ann and Alan Gilchrist were great hosts and the food and accompanying wines sublime. Both the restaurant and the bedrooms are homely and unpretentious, what made... More

We stayed at The Carlton Riverside last week for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were welcomed by Mary Ann who certainly is a great character, and both she and Alan did their utmost to make our stay memorable. We ate from the A la Carte Menu both nights (delicious) and we particularly liked Alan's wine list which included... More

We enjoyed 2 nights at this delightful establishment. I think it has all been said before but it's worth repeating. Mary Ann is a talented Chef who is very down to earth and interesting to talk to ( she was very modest about her tv appearances) and who makes you feel very welcome as does her husband Alan. It must... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was cooked to perfection and portion sizes were just right allowing us to fit in a naughty but very nice desert. Rooms are ready for an update but kept spotless. Beautiful countryside to visit with Brecon beacons on the doorstep. We will definitely return

We decided to have our 25th anniversary here and we weren't disappointed. We had a lovely warm welcome from Mary Ann who signed us in. After putting our baggage away in the bedroom we came down for a few G&Ts before our meal and Mary Ann stayed and chatted with us the whole time. We had a great meal later... More

Thank you, Mary Ann and Alan, for:  the very warm welcome  being located in such a lovely part of the world  the lovely bedroom  two superb (by any standards) dinners  two ditto breakfasts in which ghastly baked beans, thank God, did not feature  the most reasonable final bill We shall return.

We were warmly greeted on arrival be award winning chef and co-owner Mary-Ann and shown to the Oriental Room; our room for the night. The room was excellent size and very clean with a... More

Like a previous reviewer, we booked a short break, the plan being to visit the dams in the Elan Valley. The only room available on our first night was the Irfon Room which, having read the hotelier's own report about it being very small, we were a little concerned about. No need. It was cosy, but had everything we needed,... More
