My Dear Wife and myself have just returned today from a wonderful short break at this quite superb Hotel. Upon arrival we were made to feel most welcome with our luggage taken to our room while we both relaxed with a glass of champagne. The staff were world class in hospitality and advice and we could not fault the team... More

Just returned from a wonderful two night break at the Falcondale Hotel which included a delicious full welsh breakfast each morning cooked to order as well as the 7 course Taster Menu for Dinner on our first night. Everything about this lovely characterful hotel was excellent right from our arrival and welcome glass of Prosecco on the Terrance overlooking the... More

We stayed here for one night on a special offer from Travelzoo, which included a 7 course taster menu and full Welsh breakfast. The food was superb. Each course in the taster menu was exceptional, but we especially enjoyed the scallops, lamb and panne cotta dessert. Each course was beautifully cooked, but just the right size so you had room...

A friend & I stayed during the past week courtesy of Travel Zoo. It fulfilled all our hopes with friendly, helpful & courteous staff, good food and an excellent well appointed room - spotlessly clean. Sadly the weather prevented us enjoying the grounds as much as we would have desired but again we had lovely views from our room and... More

We have stayed at the Falcondale several times and are always impressed by the warm welcome, the excellent food, and the comfortable accommodation. This time we were on a special offer break, with the option to go for the set 'market' menu, or if that didn't suit, to pay a little extra to transfer 'up' to the full menu. We... More

Like other reviewers we took advantage of the Travelzoo 7 course taster menu offer. We were not disappointed. A warm welcome awaited us on check in and a glass of bubbly on the terrace. Our room was comfortable, but it was the taster menu that impressed! Seeing all the cutlery put before us was a little overwhelming as were the... More

We booked a two night stay through Travelzoo at the Falcondale Hotel. This was to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the seven course taster meal and better double room sounded fantastic. The room was certainly impressive with fantastic views. The staff were very welcoming and it was lovely to be able to converse with them in Welsh. Breakfast on both... More

Thank you very much for writing a review, it is greatly appreciated. The a la carte menu offers a choice of around 5 dishes for each course. The tasting menu is a set menu, and gives you the opportunity of trying dishes you may not ordinarily try. If you wish to have a candle within your dessert please inform the... More

We were booked for two nights bed, breakfast and 7 course taster menu. The hotel is lovely and the staff are friendly and efficient. We were booked with TravelZoo a present from our children.

This is a quiet country manor which just lacks some warmth. Our room was spacious but lacked enough ambient light with light fittings which didn't meet the needs of the room, nor the guests. The bathroom too was dingy, with an ill fitting door, really not up to the standards expected. The dining experience however was good, the tasting menu... More

Thank you David W for taking time out in writing a review. We have found lighting to be very subjective and are always trying to balance ambience and practicality. It may be useful to know which room it is you were staying in so that we can address any maintenance and lighting issues. We are happy to read that you... More

We needed to be in this area of Wales and would have found it difficult to find a more appropriate accommodation. The standard of food was high and menu interesting. Well done to the staff who were very professional without being intrusive

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Falcondale hotel and 2AA rosette restaurant near the University town of Lampeter is only 30 minutes from the coastal villages of Cardigan Bay and hilly, marshy regions of the Cambrian Mountains. A wealth of walking, cycling, fishing, and open gardens within easy reach of this central location in Wales. Why not visit the local National Trust before sinking into a warm, comfy sofa in the lounge with a glass, or two, of wine. ... more   less
