“A perfect choice for weddings and special family events. . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

If you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful but excellent value (for size and quality) location for a big wedding or family event, then look no further! Faenol Fawr is superb. Contact Jonathan (co-manager/owner) and he will help you plan a perfect day, attend to your particular needs and leave you with nothing to worry about. Seriously. His pride in the business, attentive hospitality and organisational skills are evident, and like many other previous reviewers, we enjoyed a near perfect wedding day (well, you can't control the weather, even in June!). If you are considering FF as an option, go ahead -you won't be disappointed. Hospitality, venue, dedicated areas for receiving guests, the reception, the food and evening party were all lovely. It was also very nice to stay overnight and catch up with family and friends from afar the morning after. No significant negatives to report at all (and we are fussy people who care about what we do) and if you encouter any problems, one word to Jonathan and he will sort it. (Thank you again, Jonathan -you deserve every success as a wedding venue organiser.) We left the day with many happy memories, wishing we could do it all over again.

Lovely venue, lovely hospitality! Hope to be back again sometime in the future. : )

Room Tip: Discuss your requirements with the owners and they will sort it for you.

Impressive building with lovely grounds. Very friendly staff. We ate in the bar and the food was excellent and good value for the quality. Our room was spacious and well furnished and comfortable but slightly spoilt by a lack of attention to some detail (disc missing from top of basin tap, a mixer shower that was almost impossible to regulate the temperature, unfinished tiling around bath and a wall mounted TV that was only about 2 feet from the floor so almost impossible to watch!) Would have been excellent apart from these minor niggles.

We have recently celebrated a hen party here it was absolutely excellent, from the moment my sister phoned to make enquiries the management could not have been more helpful, they were so enthusiastic and really wanted this to be a very special and memorable occasion. We were offered a room to ourselves for a three course meal and even down to the menue's there was a very personal touch as they had been printed with the name of the bride to be, she was delighted when she saw this as the meal had been kept as a surprise for her. From the moment we arrived it was brilliant we were welcomed with a tray of bucks fizz, the staff could not have done more to make it a great event they were very attentive, nothing was too much trouble, the food was excellent, hot and plentiful. We had checked before arriving that it was ok to come dressed in Victorian outfits this was not a problem and the staff very kindly offered to take group photo's for us. We were given time between courses to allow us to enjoy some family fun. An all round excellent experience. We shall happily be returning for meals and would not hesitate to book a similar event in the future.

I took a friend here as a thank you for driving my husband and I to the Hospital just next door.
I had driven myself there on previous occasions, and had enjoyed "proper coffee "
also lovely Lunches, BUT the sea food Pasa yesterday was superb, devine, and so much more, I have NEVER had such a dish presented to me or enjoyed more.
My friend had Scampi and home made Chips - not allowed at home, and enjoyed them with great relish.
On previous occations we have enjoyed meals where the Vegetables , have been part of the order, delightful, really a meal in themselves, Potatoes, cauliflowe in cheese sause, and carrots etc. all in their own dishes.
Do not wait for a Wedding, just go for a most memorable meal.

Returned for the second year running at the end of May with a party of golfers. Simply confirmed previous opinion - a cracking hotel. Food superb, extremely friendly and cheerful staff .Spotlessly clean ,not 100 % immaculate but this is basically a very,very old building. A bit quirky but pleasantly so. The fact it is owner managed and not one of a chain seems to enhance the experience. Wedding parties appear well catered for and having the "Cromwells" reception suite seperate from the main hotel building means non-revellers can still have a peaceful night's sleep - apart from the occasional raucous peacock call.

I have posted a review previously about our daughter's wedding in November 2010. We have just had our second daughter's wedding at the Faenol and again Steven and Jonathan did not disappoint. Everything was perfect and I would definately recommend the Faenol as a wedding venue. Food excellent. Just a pity I've no more daughters to repeat the experience...........

Went to a wedding here may 4th, the food was excellent, piping hot served all at the same time(not long waits between tables and courses) food was gorgeous and well prepared, The hotel itself was decorated and adorned with flowers and dressings in windows and staircase was magnificent. The evening 'do' was great made even more awesome by a fantastic singer/guitarist the party was dancing from the word go right unti the end. fanatstic night and day all around. brilliant wedding venue.

Room Tip: obviously some rooms are bigger. so just ask....
