Idyllic country retreat

A beautiful hotel. Friendly staff. Delicious food. Stayed two nights and had dinner in the restaurant. The reception staff found us maps of the area, for cycling. The staff were so good, they made the stay even better. It is in a lovely area of Wales. Recommended.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel recently and had the opportunity to enjoy the seven course taster menu, breakfast, room service and an afternoon tea. Each meal was gorgeous and the service impeccable. My only warning is that the portions are very generous, so come hungry!

A birthday celebration and we were all looking forward to the seven course tasting menu, having had others at different restaurants. We had never been to the Falcondale before and were impressed with the website - it all looked very promising. On arrival the setting is lovely, an impressive country house set in lovely grounds. Great views. The bar area... More

Congratulations to anyone who has got this far into this review! The guests were asked at the beginning of the evening whether the whole group was satisfied with the tasting menu after being given copies to read. A perfect opportunity to ask questions about dishes they weren't clear on, including the vegetarian options that were all vegetarian (incl. the vegetarian... More

The restaurant is beautifully furnished in country house style with wonderful views over miles of verdant countryside. Service matched the surroundings and set us up for a wonderful seven course taster meal. The chef had put much thought into the balance of substance and flavours, which meant we were able to enjoy all seven courses and leave the table well... More

It is a little bit out of the way & you need to get to the town by car or public transport, but if you like walking I think you could make it to the town in around 25 minutes

We ate here on a two night break. Yes the food is lovely, but my goodness it's overpriced!! It's a captive audience as not really anything locally to compete. We spent over £150 on two meals. We were forced to eat here the second night in order to receive a special offer room rate. Something which wasn't pointed out to... More
