“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2010

I booked this hotel for 2 nights as a present to my Parents, the rooms were beautiful with amazing views of the mountains and spotlessly clean. The Staff were very professional, friendly and extremely helpful. We also had 12 family members join us in the restaurant for a celebratory meal in the evening, the standard of the food was excellent as were the surroundings and decor. I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff, you helped create a wonderful memory. There is nothing negative to say about this hotel.

We spent 1 day & 1 night at the hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We arrived at lunch time & were welcomed by a very friendly young lady who, although we were a little early, told us we could check in. We were shown to one room which was lovely. however minutes later she knocked at the door to ask us if we would like larger room with a 4 poster bed - we did.
The room was tastefully decorated & spotless, with hillside/mountain view, bathroom with whirlpool bath. The only criticism for the entire stay was that the room was very cold, A portable radiator was in the room so did warm it up, however bathroom was unbearably cold! (maybe we should have told staff as they may have been able to do something about it!).
Had lunch at the hotel, just sandwiches but tasty made with fresh good quality bread.
We had dinner at the hotel also - they offer an early bird menu which we opted for. We thought that the portions would be small due to the relatively low price so planned to have 3 courses. We were wrong - neither myself not my husband had room for a dessert! The food was good quality, cooked well and presented.
The staff were pleasant and attentive, we really enjoyed our relaxing stay - we will definately return.

Me and my now wife booked the Rectory for our wedding venue, and could not have been happier. The overall cost of the wedding was far cheaper than other venues in the area, however the quality of service and food that we received far out done any of its rivals. From the out set the team were extremley flewable and catered for our specific needs. The settings around the hotel contributed to some wonderful photos and the rooms all recently furnished were to all our guests tatse.
We had a Marquee for the reception which was conected to the front of the building with added to the grandure of the setting once people arrive.
The service was carried out in a special room upstairs and our guests had full run of the venue and surrounding areas. The food quality was fantastic and this was commented on by every single guest. For the food that we had against the price that we paid the Rectory simply blew all it's rivals (and our guests) away.
The team provided us with a specific wedding organiser for the day (which we were not expecting) and John simply ensured that our day was everything that we wanted. Simply no job was too small for the team.
The real quality in the team was seen prior to the wedding when the grounds and Marquee were flooded the day before the wedding. Shaun (owner) and his team quickly swung into action with no expense or workforce spared. Sofia(wedding planner) rearranged all the deliveries due to dress the venue and took everything on herself. Expecting the worst we had a call at 10pm the same evening to say that everything was as we wanted it.
This proved the quality of everyone at the Rectory and the simply burning desire to make sure that everything was perfect for our big day.
I have already recommended the Old Rectory Hotel to many friends and family and to use the comments of many of our guests - 'The best wedding they had ever been to'.

Thankyou Shaun / Sophie and Team

Unfortunately only spent one night at this wonderful spot & wished we could have stayed longer. Wonderful location & beatiful building. Rooms were well decorated & comfortable with modern bathrooms. Staff were very accomodating & friendly & we had wonderful meals at dinner at breakfast. Don't hesitate to book...

We stayed as part of a celebration having found the hotel whilst travelling on the canal in June. Standard room had nice touches such as refrigerated bottled water and magnifying mirror available. It was fairly peaceful in spite of a wedding going on in another area although the smokers tended to congregate outside the windows which had to, therefore, be closed. The only disappointment was the evening meal which was not of the standard which the rest of the hotel definitely aspires to. The staff were very efficient and pleasant and, although the hotel was busy, they were able to give excellent atention.

This is a pretty spectacular old building with well kept grounds in the quaint village of Llangattock. We arrived just as a wedding party was about to go up to the function room. Despite all this going on the staff were superb. There was nowhere to park our car but, within minutes, the manager had found a space right nect to our room. Although the room was small, it had everything we needed for a night's stay. We asked if we could eat there that evening and nothing was too much trouble at the bar (with a huge selection of drinks and decent real ales) and in the restaurant (where the food was excellent - steak cooked exactly as asked for my wife and a wonderful rack of lamb, crisoy outside and pink and succulaent inside, for me and the view across the valley to the mountains was a bonus). Breakfast was cooked to order and exactly how it should be. Every member of staff was cheerful, welcoming and helpful and definitely not just "going through the motions". We will definitely stay there again.

We telephoned the hotel 2 days before to book up a deluxe room but they offered us £20 off a suite which we accepted. The Hotel is on the outskirts of Crickhowell a stones throw away from the Monmouthshire & Brecon canal and on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Its location is very quite. I guess they only had about half a dozen rooms occupied on the one night we stayed. There is attached a 9 hole golf course, haven't got a clue how to play the game, so gave that a miss. The suite room was of good size with a dressing room and a large bathroom with walk in shower and jacuzzi bath. The water pressure did not seem that great so it was a slow shower! Partial Sky TV in the room with hot drink facility and biscuits. Our room, 14 was on the 2nd floor, there is no lift so that could be a problem to some who find it difficult to carry luggage up stairs.
The well stocked bar is adjacent to the restaurant and has several local beers on offer.
The restaurant has a good menu with several specials available at reasonable prices. There is also a bar menu available at very good prices (I suppose £7 for an average meal). The food served in the bar was of excellant quality and it was served in good time. There is a large flat screen TV in the bar useful as it was world cup final evening. Breakfast was inclusive and served in the bar area.
The staff were very attentive with good attention to detail and friendly.
Would absolutely recommend this hotel!
