“Lovely hotel in a great surrounding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I was a bit hesitant before booking as there were very few TA reviews - but it is under new ownership and they had asked for the old reviews to be removed to get a fresh start.

We chose it because it looked like it had a lot of history and character. We stayed for one night in a family room and were very pleased with our choice. The hotel is located in beautiful grounds with a some really nice views.

We did not eat dinner in as we were walking int the evening and ate out but there was a good menu and we enjoyed the breakfast.

My only complaint is that they do not allow dogs. This is a shame as there is some great walking nearby. The hotel is also a good base to visit Cardiff and the surrounding areas.

If they changed their policy on dogs we would visit frequently -dog friendly hotels are a big draw.

Beds were a little soft for us but the room and bathroom were large and comfortable. We were there on the May day bank holiday weekend and it was very quite - Their web site does warn that on certain days they may have events - so if you want a quite night check what else is on.

Recently had Sunday lunch for my parents anniversary.
Staff were very friendly. We had the 3 courses for £16 and it did not disappoint!
Very generous well prepared/cooked food and great selection of desserts.
Would definitely recommend.

Visited for a family Sunday lunch. Excellent choice of menu with good portions of meat and lovely fresh vegetables and plenty of gravy. Good selection of starters and puddings, the apple tart with custard and lemon cheesecake especially good. Staff were helpful, friendly and efficient. Also at a very good price.

Visited with my 2 sisters and 2 friends for an afternoon tea. We love going to different venues for an afternoon tea and this wasn't a disappointment. It was extremely good value for money. The sandwiches and cakes were excellent. There were a few choices for tea but unfortunately no option apart from filter coffee on the coffee menu. This was unlimited though so made up for lack of choices. Good service and great setting. Lovely.
