“Fine quality food and amazing location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2011 via mobile

A warm welcome from check in to check out. The staff accomodated our every need. I was there with a party of 14 and the small restaurant team and chefs dealt with us as if we where only a table of 4 with food coming out freshly prepared and cooked in no time at all. The food and presentation deserves Michelin Star!

Will be going again.

We visited Pen-y-dyffryn for the second time earlier this year and stayed again the Coach House. Our room was comfortable with pleasant decor and a pristine bathroom. Unfortunately the weather precluded the use of the patio area - this time it was rain, on our previous visit in 2010 it had been heavy snow. The hotel was extremely cosy, with roaring fires and afternoon tea served on arrival. We have enjoyed excellent food at Pen-y-dyffryn, including scallops, venison and fish. Breakfasts were also hearty and packed lunches were available on request.
The area has many walks of varying difficulty and the owners are happy to provide maps and advice. We are looking forward to returning in the future.

Great service in a lovely country hotel - not your usual "too cute" country hotel that tries too hard, just really well done surroundings and service. The evening meal was sublime, exceeding both our expectations (some previous average ratings on food) - Highly recommended. Good value too

Room Tip: Pay for one of the more expensive rooms!

My wife and I stayed at Pen-y-Dyffryn for five days in late April/early May. Our room (the Garden Room) was large, clean, comfortable, bright, and blissfully quiet. The view out our window was gorgeous. The bathroom, with tub and shower, was clean and spacious.

The hotel staff could not have been more accommodating. They were attentive, friendly, and always nice to be with.

A hearty breakfast (included) fueled us up for full days driving around Shropshire and Wales. The dinner menu was different every night, and the food was to die for.

In short, it was for us an idyllic place to stay while enjoying the beauties of the region.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We extended it by a night too - first staying in coach-house 1 and then The Terrace Room. Both rooms were clean, well furnished, had a full compliment of facilities and both could accomodate our dog. The view and location is stunning and we did morning walks whilst we were there that took in the full beauty of the english and welsh countryside. The staff were very friendly and professional and there was an air of professional elegance about the place - whilst still being relaxed and friendly. The food was superb and we felt the price fully reflected the standard of the accommodation, food and service and was of great value for money. We cannot wait to return!!

We had coach house room 1. It was well presented and our patio area was glorious. The view was stunning and the sun trap meant we sat out until early evening in T shirts, even though it was mid April. Next time we go we will take our dog as the local walks were varied and interesting. All the staff we met were friendly and very helpful. There is so much to see locally, but you could easily spend a day quietly at the hotel soaking up the views.
