“Idyllic taste of luxury”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

A friend and I took champagne with an interesting afternoon tea in this beautifully restored mansion. From the moment when we were warmly greeted on arrival, having enjoyed the view as we drove down the winding drive, to when we left replete hours later, we were made to feel special. Requests to adapt the set tea menu were greeted with a 'can do' attitude; the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and we were given a guided tour of the hotel/restaurant. We will make a return visit and perhaps treat ourselves by staying overnight and having an evening meal in their restaurant - well worth a visit.

Dear Carys,

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us feed back on your recent stay at the mansion. I was delighted to read your review on the Hotel, facilities and service and thank you for your kind words. We strive at Nanteos to create a special place, where the customer feels like they are staying at a friends country house rather than just another country house.

I was naturally disappointed that you felt the food lacked flavour, as, along with presentation, this is something that our chef and his team holds as most important about the cuisine offered at the property. As you have not commented specifically on any particular dishes it is difficult to address this issue, however I would welcome you contacting me personally to discuss the dishes you ate.

Customer feedback is essential to us as it assist in the continual monitoring of all aspects of our business and I would like to once again thank you for your comments and look forward to welcoming you back once more to the Mansion in the not to distant future.

With Regards

Mark Rawlings-Lloyd
General Manager

“Very good food in beautiful surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Had a very nice meal at the restaurant in the Nanteos mansion. The food was lovely and the service excellent.

A couple of things they owners / chef might like to consider. Some of the portions were on the large side - I had a bouillabaisse to start - that was definitely a lunch, if not a main supper course. My wife had the cheeseboard with no description of the cheeses and apparently no local cheeses - a real shame with such great cheeses produced in the Ceredigion area
