We had a lovely one night stay (£79 standard room with 3 course dinner and breakfast). Our welcome was the only negative point of the stay. The receptionist just seemed to stare at us. Our room wasn't quite ready when we arrived so we sat in the sitting room and had a look at the lunch menu. This was all a bit awkward and the sitting room is quite shabby. We then had some lunch which was nice. We had cawl and ham, egg and chips. We settled in our room which was nice enough, a bit run down but very spacious and a nice view (Room no 5). We had a taxi booked to get us to the Pendryn Whisky Distillery which didn't come due to the weather but a member of the hotel staff was so lovely and gave us a lift. The distillery was brilliant and the tasting was a fun way to fill the time. We got a lift back with the same member of staff who told us a lot about the history of the hotel and the future plans for renovation. After chatting she told us the hotel had low occupancy (probably being so close to Christmas) and then offered us a free upgrade. She showed room 19 and 13 and we chose to stay in 13. The room was warm and spacious and we enjoyed the luxury of the jucuzzi bath and four poster bed. The 3 course dinner was utterly delicious! We had risotto and terrain to start, duck and lamb for mains and then creme brulee. Breakfast was nice. Overall, we had a fantastic time away to ourselves before the rush of Christmas and the staff and food at the hotel really made the experience. We look forward to visiting again once the renovations have been made! :)
