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.
