“Idyllic escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2012

First,but not last visit to this amazing property.Extremely friendly welcome,reflecting the overall high standards of customer service,evident from the entire staff.Overall standard of accommodation on a par with the best of hotels!.Large comfy beds,fridge and microwave together with an amazing shower added to the other extra touches,make for a truly relaxing break.Breakfast was of a high standard,nothing was too much trouble for the staff, we were lucky enough to experience their recent evening menu, which again was of a high standard along with their cariad wine,try the blush," shes worth it".Loved the Cwtch, log burning fire, comfy sofas.

I have visited Llanerch many times for meals, coffee and evening drinks and I can't recommend the place high enough. In December I attended a wedding and stayed over night and the whole event was faultless. The staff are very service focused, courteous and helpful. The management team are extremely hands on and this ensures that the whole experience is smooth and to a very high standard. The decor is sumptuous without being over fussy, the bistro and cwtch are full of character - very Hotel du Vin. The food is outstanding and the wine list is comprehensive. The rooms are individual, very clean and comfortable, I asked to see most of the rooms including the honeymoon suite which was to-die-for, particularly the bathroom! Put this place on your south wales wish list, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: If you can stretch to it the honeymoon suite is definitely worth the extra money!

Have not stayed here but have been to the Bistro a number of times. The present owners have invested much into the premises and seem to have got it just right! It is now a very welcoming, relaxing and enjoyable place to visit.

We particularly enjoy the Sunday Lunch. Limited choice but such good quality. Highly recommend the Cariad wine too!

I wasn't sure where I'd end up on my birthday surprise, but was so pleased that it was Llanerch Vineyard. Having gone there for a coffee or a lunch, I often wondered what it would be like to stay there. It's only 6/7 miles from where we live, but you could be a thousand miles away, in France, surrounded by vines and beautiful scenery. The attention to detail is evident everywhere, and everything is just right. The beds are really comfortable, rooms are clean and very well furnished, and the little touches make it like home from home. The service is great, breakfasts are lovely and tasty, and the ambiance is warm. I would thoroughly recommend it, and look forward to staying there again.

Room Tip: Studio 5 is at the end of the block, and just perfect for us.

Just got back from Llanerch and had an absolutely fabulous time. The staff were extremely friendly, the rooms were great (such comfy beds) and the setting was wonderful. It is obvious that a lot of time, effort and hard work has been put into making Llanerch such a delightful place. I will be back!

Matt, Western Australia.

My advice is to call ahead and check if they have an event booked. The noise from the event echoed throughout the hotel until very late - we got little sleep. This was made worse by the paper thin walls between rooms. The hotel is lovely in a beautiful setting. I cannot comment on breakfast as we were so exhausted we left before breakfast to get home for some sleep!

Room Tip: Call ahead to check if there's an event being held.

We were saddened to hear that you did not have a good night’s sleep at Llanerch Vineyard, as you were kept awake by the function that was occurring in downstairs in the main building, which in turn meant that you were too tired to come to breakfast.

Your room was booked by a third party company, whom upon making the booking we clearly indicated that there was a function on this night that would be loud until the late hours in the morning. Unfortunately we did not have any other double rooms available in a quieter part of the hotel to offer. They advised us that as you were attending an event that you had won from Cadw in the Castle and you would not be returning to the hotel until at least 1am, so we took the room booking on this basis.

The company who took the booking then sent a booking reference to Cadw which contained the following information, “I have been informed that there is a function on at the hotel that evening but as you will be arriving back from the castle quite late, I didn’t think this would be a problem for you. Whilst the B&B is complimentary, please settle for any extras – drinks, newspapers etc. direct with the hotel when you check out.”

We apologise that this information was not passed onto you, and we have spoken to both of the third party company’s to ensure it does not occur again. If you would like to speak further about this please feel free to contact me directly at the hotel on 01443 222716
