The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly before we arrived and as soon as we got there. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The food was great and the entertainment was absolutely fantastic. Definitely coming back :-)

My husband and I and our 4 month old twins loved staying here. It honestly felt homely. The staff were exemplary every single one! Especially Christine, David and Sue. Nothing was too much trouble and they were so welcoming. We ate an evening meal which was good quality Welsh food at reasonable prices. Breakfast was outstanding too! Highly recommend anyone...
