On a recent visit for lunch, although the food was excellent as usual, and the décor and furnishings were still attractive and appealing, the experience was no longer 'special'. Little things let it down, for example, gone were the crisp, white tablecloths, gone was the log fire in the lounge that had previously added so much to the country-house ambiance... More

Thank you for taking time out in writing a review. However, we are slightly confused at your negative comments. As you have undoubtedly visited us on many occasions you would know that we have two restaurants. The Valley restaurant is the larger of the two and has a cool, relaxing atmosphere with the crisp white tablecloths that you talked about.... More

We were very disappointed with the choice on the set menu. I personally do not eat pork it was the only choice. Paid extra £10 each for the extensive menu. The lamb main course came on its own with no potatoes or veg. Lamb was so fatty we had to leave it.

Beautiful place and beautiful food. We had afternoon tea in the conservatory and were allowed to bring Stella the Staffie with us. Always a bonus. The afternoon tea was full of deliciousness and so much food we had to ask for some to be wrapped to take home with us.

The hotel stands in magnificent grounds and is a lovely building but having had lunch there a few times I have been very disappointed in the standard of the food. The selection of vegetables is poor and I felt that the food was not freshly prepared but brought in from a supplier - main course of meat.

We rank Falcondale very highly in Lampeter. A beautiful place for a special occasion. On this evening there were four of us in the party and just two other tables. The food was good, but it was a bit quiet there. They could have done with some background music. It was on the expensive side as well. However, I've heard,... More

Thank you for reviewing your dinner with us here at The Falcondale. Dining mid-week and off-season will be quieter than some evenings. The music system was broken for a few days, but is now fixed. We are glad that you enjoyed your dinner and hope that we may be able to welcome you back soon. Diolch, Meleri More

We were thoroughly delighted with the warm welcome we received which was also complemented by a wonderful meal and bedroom.
