We went for a mid-week break and were given a large room, with period furniture and an adjoining family room which also contained the bath/shower room. No central heating in such an old, large building but it wasn't cold and there were real fires downstairs and electric radiators in the rooms. The bed was very comfortable too.
Some bits of the decor are a bit quirky but everything was spotlessly clean and worked well. The staff were very friendly and helpful - it's a family concern rather than corporate and that certainly shows in the way guests are treated. We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was good, though the menu was not extensive. Breakfasts were good quality too. Unusually for a small hotel, the bar served a decent pint of real ale, though bar prices seemed steep despite us being used to big city prices.
The grounds are very attractive with acres of parkland and Offa's Dyke passes through them. We managed a 3 hour walk along the dyke path and around the area, without coming near more than the occasional farmhouse or cottage. Although there is a static caravan park at the rear, it was very quiet and also appears to be very well maintained, so I would not expect any issues there.
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel and the surrounding small towns (Bishops Castle & Montgomery) are interesting to visit too. We'd happily go back.
