We have just returned from a long weekend at the Drawing Room and can only confirm other reviews that it was absolutely delightful. We stayed in Phoebe which, although not large, is fine for a weekend and beautifully decorated with a lovely bathroom with walk-in shower. As most other people state, the food is the real high spot and it... More

We stayed at the Drawing Room just after Christmas, via a brilliant offer on Iescape. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and given tea and cakes by the beautiful log fire. The room we stayed in (Oliver) has a fantastic roll top bath and very comfortable double bed. The restaurant has a very impressive wine list, considering there is only... More

The trip from North Wales on a Friday night was an exhilarating one. The road climbs out of Newtown and is really fun drive and we were so excited about the thought of amazing food and drinks! Upon arrival Melanie was the perfect host and showed us to our room to freshen up before dinner. Over a leisurely drink we... More

I found the drawing room was just what we needed!The rooms are exactly as advertised, the location is so peaceful & the decor was perfect, country-british home chic at its finest. The entire ambiance was calm and lovely. Melanie was a lovely... More

Lovely small hotel with an excellent restaurant. I was travelling on my own and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this beautiful hotel. The evening meal was delicious and breakfast equally great. My room was very cosy with great quality fixtures and fittings. Melanie and Colin were very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. This is a wonderful oasis to recharge... More

The best break. We went for a Babymoon and even though a long drive from Surrey, once we arrived we received such a warm welcome from Melanie and instantly relaxed. Amazing food, I would say better than some Michelin starred places we've eaten in and the cosiest dining room with great wines. The service was so warm and friendly and... More

Wow! Beautiful house and marvelous food. Melanie was a wonderful host and was very helpful and knowledgeable when we enquired about going out for the day. Melanie and Colin have a wonderful eye for decoration. Our evening meals were delightful. We enjoyed sitting by the log fire whilst waiting for our dinner to be prepared. Melanie suggested that we should... More

We stayed in The Drawing Room two nights. The first thing I must mention that you must realise that you have to eat in the restaurant every night, that is the condition of having a room, some sites may not make this clear when you are booking it, such as the one we used, however, the mistake was handled very...

We did not stay at The Drawing Room, but went for a meal after recommendation. The detail applied to the presentation, the detail given to the composition of each dish and the detail given to making the dining experience special, was the best my wife and I have experienced for a long time. We both ate the Crab and Prawn... More

My wife and I recently spent two nights here as we were visiting the area where many of her family used to live. We had read the excellent reviews of the Drawing Room and this helped encourage us to make the visit. We had a lovely welcome from Melanie and then settled down for a drink before dinner, cooked expertly... More
