we visited today (may 17th) This hotel for afternoon tea was recommends to us by another family member! Nevertheless, we were very disapponted with it. Cakes were not home made. Very poor selection of sandwiches! Only one type of tea and one type of coffee offered! It was suppose to be buffet style? But there was a young girl actually... More

Stayed here for two nights midweek in a simply stunning room with balcony overlooking the river. The grounds are beautifully managed and well worth a walk. Afternoon tea is a lovely touch with the opportunity to return to the buffet table as many times as you wish. Dinner menu caters for most tastes and the food is cooked to perfection.... More

Comfortable hotel, helpful pleasant staff, great location, easy to relax. Food was good but over-elaborate [dinner], serving staff lacking finesse were the only down points. Would we go back ? Yes but probably need the 'lure' of a 'special offer'

stayed here for a weekend in March. We were made very welcome. The food was excellent. The sitting rooms with their big fires and deep comfy sofas - lovely. Nice touches all around - really beautiful. The conservatory overlooking the river Usk is just a stunning place and lovely to sit, with a nice drink, looking across the valley. We... More

We stayed for one night, had tea, dinner and breakfast. This is a charming country house hotel with loads of character. We stayed in a standard room which was a pleasant room, however the character lies in the public rooms with their panelling, comfy seating, good service - overall a relaxing place to stay with walks in the gardens. The... More

Delicious afternoon tea in delightful surroundings. Very busy, but it was a bank holiday. Couldn't fault the quality of the sandwiches and cakes. £14 was very reasonable for such quality with opportunity for seconds and thirds from the buffet table ! Staff very helpful polite and friendly.Will definitely pay another visit.

Stopped off for lunch having been recommended to us; smoked salmon sandwiches, with ample salmon! with side salad and crisps/chips, less than £10. Excellent lunch! Beautiful views from conservatory or outdoor patio area overlooking the river below. Well worth a visit.

I came across this little gem last week after looking online for somewhere to take a friend for afternoon tea. As soon as we arrived I was in awe. The place is so beautiful and peaceful and I couldn't believe that I had never been there before, only living 30 minutes away. Afternoon tea was served buffet style with the... More

The sum of any hotel stay is only as good as its parts and this business scores well. It is an old but highly individual property almost a folly on the outside and a warren of rooms and corridors inside. It could certainly do with some TLC in parts but is very clean as was my bedroom and bathroom. Good/bad,... More

Joined family for afternoon tea here which was a great disappointment , very poor choice of sandwiches for the price . Most definitely needs improvement in this area . Otherwise a traditional building in a lovely setting .
