We stayed for 4 nights and when we booked it was a "hotel" but before we arrived it had changed to be a "restaurant with rooms". But with the one price menu at £95 each we went out to dinner in local gastro pubs. After arriving around 3 pm from a 4 hour journey we asked for afternoon tea, which... More

We had booked dinner and overnight stay. I am sorry to say that the experience was disappointing. Although the staff did everything possible to make our visit a success, there are some basic irritants that need to be changed. On arrival, we had a drink in the bar which looks in desperate need of renovation. The furniture is tacky, and... More

I treated my partner to afternoon tea here for his birthday. The lady who showed us into the lovely, sunny room said we could have a free upgrade of afternoon tea and as well as the lovely sandwiches and welsh bread (Barabrith?) we had a gorgeous selection of tiny desserts which were all delicious. The upmarket hotel is beautifully decorated... More

My overall impression of Ynyshir is similar to some other reviewers. I had not visited previously but it would seem that the kitchen are running the show here and they do not always make good hoteliers. There was no doubt that some of the dishes that we ate were fantastic but they alone did not compensate for other severe shortcomings... More

The restaurant is impeccable but the hotel services lag behind for the price. The food has to be tasted and the 11 course tasting menu beautiful. The sommelier was excellent and his advice impeccable. A bit more attention to service detail in the hotel will make this one of the best experiences.

Superb rooms, service and location - our room looked out over the expansive gardens and to the hills beyond. Restaurant menu however was far too limited - the Tasting Menu was delicious but you don't want a (very expensive) tasting menu every night.

We were given a voucher for a Welsh afternoon tea and given the location attended with high expectations. What a disappointment, yes everything we had was nice, but having read their publicity regarding their large choice of tea I expected to be given the choice of what tea I was to have. No choice ... a pot of tea was... More

Stopped over for a couple of nights. Loved my room. Floors not always level due to the history of the house. Fabulous cocktails before the meal. Food is only a tasting menu so portion size small. Tasted wonderful. Staff very attentive (possibly a little too). Very enjoyable but not if you want large portions

Every room is luxuriously different, every guest treated to great service and a warm welcome. We experienced the tasting menu which was very nouvelle cuisine and innovative. Would like to have been able to order the Welsh Wagyu as a full main course. Final course saw everyone taken into the kitchen and treated to a science lesson involving liquid nitrogen,... More

Thought the room was good until we saw the amazing bathroom with its twinkling LED 'stars' in the ceiling and spa bath! Excellent meal, as expected, with a nice surprise at the end. Good location with some interesting walks close to the hotel.
