“return trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This was our second visit to The Falcondale and i must say it didn't disappoint. From the welcome we received on our arrival to leaving on the Sunday morning we could not have been better looked after. The food was again exceptional from the seven course taster menu we had on our first night to the wonderful cooked breakfast on both mornings. Rooms are beautifully appointed and luxuriously decorated and i would heartily recommend this hotel to anyone. We will certainly be returning again in the very near future.

Room Tip: upgrade to better room well worth the extra 20 quid

We only stayed one night here and being peak season and the last room available, it was expensive. Our telephone booking experience was not good in that we were effectively told to take it or leave it, rather abruptly !! However, on arrival, we got a totally different impression when greeted by our charming hostess who gave us a welcome glass of bubbly and an upgraded room. The room was large ,well furnished with a beautiful view. Perhaps we chose the wrong items on the dinner menu, but we felt the dinner lacked flavour and generally was not value for money.
Service was good and the ambience of the hotel, pleasant.

Room Tip: Try and book a room with the view.

If you are looking for peace, tranquility, excellent food and service and an extremely comfy bed this us the place for you. 2 days seemed like a week for all the right reasons. We upgraded to the balcony room over looking the spectacular grounds. Can't wait to come back :-)

This was our second visit to The Falcondale and it was even better this time than the last. The views from the bedroom and conservatory alone are just spectacular, rain or shine.

The owners are clearly working hard to ‘up’ the already excellent standards of the hotel. Crisp white sheets, fresh thick bright white towels, quality toiletries and a very comfy bed all help make the stay a special one.

On our last weekend visit, we enjoyed the taster menu but this time had the set menu dinner which was excellent. (The cheese soufflé starter was particularly good)

Great breakfast with lots of choices and very tasty bacon!

The whole stay was lovely and the friendly owner once again pointed us towards some lovely places to visit on route home.

Book with confidence and enjoy. We hope to return again soon. R & A

We stayed here with the help of a well known voucher so we had very good value for both the accommodation and the afternoon tea, enormous evening taster menu and breakfast which came as part of the package. Check-in was excellent and we were welcomed by the owner and made to feel immediately at home. The views are exceptional and the grounds offer some easy walking in the landscape. This is an excellent hotel in a very pretty part of Wales and quilt-makers will love the specialist museum/gallery a short walk away in Lampeter itself.

The Jen Jones quilt centre in Lampeter has a great exhibition at the moment in conjunction with Kaffe Fasset.

Stayed here with family over three nights in July for graduation ceremony at Trinity St Davids University of Wales. We have stayed several times before and it has always been the best accommodation, food and location we have experienced. Views, accommodation, breakfast and dinner were all excellent and the staff were extremely attentive at all times. The setting is most relaxing and the good weather meant that we were able to sit outside on the terrace for long periods and admire the rural setting and views. Walks in the grounds are also a must. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent!

Graduation is a great day here at Lampeter, and 2013 was no exception. We are always a bit sad to see the families and friends of students for the last time, but hope that we were able to provide a comfortable and welcoming setting while their sons/daughters etc. were in Lampeter.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We hope that we will be able to tempt you back to The Falcondale in the future.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of July. This was a Groupon deal which included breakfast, afternoon tea & the 7 course taster menu.

The hotel was lovey, we had a great room with a perfect view at the front of the hotel. The staff were very friendly and Mel on reception is a credit to the hotel.

The taster menu was really good as was the choice at breakfast. Surprisingly, the bar prices were reasonable for a hotel. There is a good wine choice on the menu also.

The hotel is ideally situated for exploring this part of the world which is just lovely.

We would definitely stay again and would recommend.
