“They were right”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

Stayed for 2 nights and had booked their lowest cost room, unfortunately it was tiny for 2 of us and the dog and showing it's age. The staff had said on the phone that it was small and offered me an executive suite but it was nearly twice the cost. The coach house rooms are due for a big up grade very soon so maybe we'll have to try again.

Staff where very friendly and helpful, but to me, it's quite pricey so very good service should be a given. It's in a great location and nice grounds. They need to sort out access to the river footpath but the dog enjoyed the adventure.

The breakfast was nicely presented and well prepared but I'm not sure how local the ingredients where. I have a thing about restaurants that use straight sausages!!

Room Tip: Go for the recently refurbished rooms

Have just come back from the maesmawr hotel restaurant, and had to say how excellent our meal was, i had booked a table for four but one of our guest couldn't make it, but each one of us enjoyed every part of the meal we had, and would highly recommend the restaurant.
The staff polite and courteous, we felt well look after.
I can not wait for my son to visit from the u.s.a so we can show that we too in Wales have a place to go that do excellent food.

My wife and I stayed at the Maesmawr for three nights and chose a room in the coach house. We were informed before we confirmed that the room we had chosen was dated and small in comparison to rooms in the main building. Having stayed in the room we were pleasantly surprised and mentioned that if that was one of the worst we look forward to staying in one of the others. The Hotel is going through a refurbishment at the moment, but that hasn't affected our stay. The room was clean and comfortable; the Hotel has bags of character; the breakfasts were amazing and we must give special mention to Lee, David and James who were all professional, pleasant, attentive and approachable (and of course the chef who produced some amazing breakfasts). We are sure that the remainder of the staff, who we didn't meet personally, are equally as professional. We will definitely being staying at the Hotel again on future visits to the area. Not only is the Hotel a great place to stay, but it lies in some magnificent countryside.

me and my wife stayed here for the weekend.when we arrived we were given room 1,we were being charged £120 per night for this room,wow what a disapointment,allthoughe clean the wallpaper was ripped and stained the carpet had inprints of iron marks whiche had been melted into,we had to take the head board of the bed because every time you turned it banged on the wall,the bed was terrible we rolled in the middle constantly and to finish of at 630 in the morning the central heating was knocking really loudly for approx 1hr,we complained to the manager who managed to move us to a muche better room the next day.now the good point the hotel itself is lovely full of character,the staff are a credit to this hotel very freindly and attentive,the manager was sorry dont know his name was very understanding and is also a credit to this hotel.the hotel is currently going throughe a refurb,but i feel they should drastically reduce the charge for this room or wait till this room has had a complete refurb before they let it out.

Just returned from a three night stay at the hotel for a wedding.

Have to honestly say that it was the best wedding that myself and my husband have ever been to.
If you love and expect the very best in food, the very best in staff customer service and kindness then you'll staying at the right place.

The evening four course meal was exemplary, the breakfast unbelievable and the top notch service goes without saying.

The wedding feast was the best I've ever eaten, fresh, individual, lots of it and 5*. Lee looked after everyone so well and went above and beyond even loaning my husband a tie when he'd forgotten to pack his.

We stayed in room 11 which is part of the old house, the bed was the comfiest ever so a great few nights sleep also!

Can't recommend the place enough and will definitely be returning soonest for the same 3 night deal.

Room Tip: Room 11 for an old fashioned taste of the hotel or the Coach house if you want a modern feel.

We stayed with a group including V8Racer and Johng39benfleet. It was unfortunate for them that they were consigned to the Coach House! We suffered the same fate approx 8 years ago and had to complain about the room then so it's very disappointing that it hasn't improved yet.

That said, we were lucky this time and had room 2 in the main building. There is information in the room to advise that refurbishment is ongoing but our room was really quite nice and, I assume, had already been 'done'. However, I could not turn the radiator off or down and neither could the member of staff who came to help. The main building, as has been said, is old and quirky, but very photogenic and attractive.

We ate as a large group in the function room (like the Coach House, this is completely dissimilar to the 'character' part of the building). The food was plentiful but a bit 'school dinners'. The lamb with apricot stuffing was served sans stuffing and well overcooked. Food had been pre-ordered but the choice of 4 desserts had strangely been reduced to just 3.

Breakfast was nicely done and the waiting staff were helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building, not the Coach House, and not above the bar as, apparently, that...

I stay at the Maesmawr on a regular basis as I work in Newtown.
There is always a friendly welcome from staff and the hotel is a truly wonderful old building with lots of character and charm.
The food is of a very high standard and can be recommended as a great place to dine.
