“Excellent stay”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We spent two nights on 15th and 16th Feb 2013. at this lovely hotel. We were upgraded to a suite with lovely views over the lake to the hills beyond. Our room was stylish and spotlessly clean with complimentary snacks and tea and coffee and our bathroom was spacious and ultra chic. The food was fantastic; some of the best we have eaten anywhere. The lounge and bar areas were comfortable and very warm. Thank you to the staff who were so friendly and welcoming. We are so glad to have found this little gem of a hotel and we look forward to returning.

Stayed here using a groupon which included 2 nights and a 3 course meal at the hotel.

The location was beautiful, right on a lovely lake in a countryside setting. The staff were lovely, friendly, helpful and couldnt do enough for you.

We ate in the restaurant on our first night, as per the groupon. The restaurant describes itself as fine dining, im afraid i have to disagree. Very limited choice of only 4 options. I ordered lamb, it arrived as the smallest portion I have ever seen in a restaurant (2 small fatty pieces of loin and one ravioli with some sauce) and it was stone cold. I asked to have something else, as eating cold fatty lamb completely put me off what I had ordered and was served the mushroom risotto.

I am a huge fan of risotto, have eaten it in many fine dining restaurants, and although this time it was hot, it tasted like overcooked savoury rice pudding with chewy mushroom pieces in it. Im really not sure what stock it was cooked in, tasted a bit meaty which was odd considering it was the only vegetarian option on the menu. The starter and dessert were average, the starter again being very small. My partner ordered the beef and did enjoy it, though again the portion size was very small.

We retired to our room hoping breakfast would be better the following morning, again it arrived luke warm-cold. I did not complain this time and ate it as i was starving from lack of food the night before.

Our room was spotlessly clean, however the decor was very dated and felt like we had stepped back into the 90's. The maid did inform us however that they were re-decorating all the rooms slowly, Im very glad that you are! Little touches such as welshcakes, crips, bottled water were very thoughtful and lovely.

I think our room must have been above the kitchen, as we were woken up by shouting people at 6.45am and did not get back to sleep. Walls were very thin i think!

We decided not to stay a 2nd night, as the area was a bit too quiet for us being a young couple used to city life. We also did not want to stay for another luke warm passable breakfast, or be woken up early by staff shouting. They did give us a free drink to apologise for the cold food, so that was nice.

Im really sorry to have to write a bad reveiw about this hotel, as the staff were lovely and they are clearly trying to make it into a nice hotel. Its just a shame that some things like the food don't quite make the standard!

Room Tip: Try and get a room that has been re-decorated!

We spent 2 nights at this excellent hotel on an amazing value Groupon voucher 21/22nd Feb 2013. The room was large, warm and recently decorated with an on suite bathroom and a view of the lake. Tea/coffee making facilities and crisps, welsh cakes and biscuits were provided free.
The hotel has a dining room overlooking the lake, a bar and sitting rooms.
Our voucher included a three course dinner for two on the first evening. When given a menu I enquired whether there was a separate menu for our voucher but it included the full restaurant menu!
The food was excellent and we enjoyed it so much that we paid to eat there on our second evening. The menu is not extensive but the food is well cooked.
We enjoyed the hotel and would consider it to be good value had we paid the full price!
The staff could not have been more helpful and the hotel setting is delightful.
This young couple deserve to succeed with this relatively new venture.

The young owners are working very hard to establish this hotel. We upgraded to a suite with an excellent bathroom. The view also over the lake was spectacular especially when it snowed overnight, magical.
The food couldn't be faulted. The food was cooked to perfection. I only wish they had a change in the menu on a two day cycle rather than monthly as I would have liked to have eaten there for the both evenings we stayed at the hotel.
We wish them all the best in the future.

On arrival, we were warmly greeted, informed of the restaurant and breakfast details and shown to our room. The room itself was so lovely, we had booked the family room, number 1, it was clean, well thought out and spacious.
The bathroom had the usual toiletries available, but there were masses of towels, four bottles of water, four packets of biscuits and plenty of tea coffee milk and sugars. We thought the room was great. The following morning after a very comfortable sleep, we had the choice of cereals, yogurts and fruit or the cooked breakfast, and yes allowing for freshly cooked food, it did take a little time for the full breakfast to come out, but locally sourced produce ensure quality, tasty food, well cooked.
The only one complaint I would state about our stay would be the noisy radiators clunking through the evening, but as we were very tired, after attending a local party, it only woke myself once, and the others slept through out.
On whole, we would recommend this hotel, and will return to use it again.

Lovely hotel with friendly helpful staff. Our room was large, clean & had a lovely view over the lake. The food was very good & nothing was too much trouble, we were even asked what time we wanted breakfast served on check out day & it was cooked to perfection, freshly prepared & served at your table, unlike most hotels these days, who serve it buffet style. We would definitely like to come back & stay in the summer months. Many thanks Mike for making our stay so enjoyable.

Room Tip: Ask for room 2, it's quite a large double & overlooks the lake.

This is a beautiful, cosy and distinctive hotel with friendly staff, tasteful decor and delicious food. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed and I felt at home as soon as I arrived. The setting is gorgeous, with pretty farmland all around and every room (I stayed with a group) seems to have great views. What's really impressive is the attention to detail - everything is spotless, and the little things like hairdryers, local guides, hot drinks and fresh clean towels have all been thought about and are there exactly when and where you need them. The food was fresh and delicious and the owners are helpful, thoughtful and have clearly worked hard on the place, with great results. It's a perfect antidote to chain hotels - comfortable, beautiful, family-run and charming.
