My family and I(2 adults 1 child) stayed at this hotel a few weeks ago as we were visiting family in the area. My husband and I stayed in the hotel when it was under the previous owner a few years ago, but we were pleasantly surprised by the refurbishment to the hotel by the new owners. Karen and her partner (I forget his name) gave us a warm, welsh welcome and it is clear to see from the outset the effort they have put into this hotel since they have taken it over. The restaurant is comfortable, clean and modern and the service is second to none by the waiting staff. We ate at the hotel for 2 of our 3 night stay and the food was fantastic. We had lovely, well cooked steak you can tell from the taste it was pan fried to perfection. Our daughter has a egg allergy and the kitchen staff were fantastic in making sure her dietary needs were met. Also all kids meals came with free ice cream, but as the ice cream contained egg, Karen allowed our daughter to help herself to an ice cream from their ice cream/lollies selection so that she was not left out. We were really impressed by this.
We were first to stay in the recently refurbished family room, which was decorated beautifully, with a widescreen TV and had a good selection of tea/coffee/biscuits. Breakfast was gorgeous, cereals, toast, full english, etc.
I would highly recommend the hotel and restaurant to anybody. Really impressed and the restaurant was packed out every night that we were there, that says something in my opinion. The changes made in a year are incredible. I look forward to returning next year to see what else is new.
Thanks Karen and your partner (I'm so sorry I can't remember his name) for a great stay and thanks to your staff and chefs for preparing us some of the best food we have ever tasted.
