“I thought service like this did not exist anymore!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

My other half and I went for a belated Valentines night. We had a great time, the bedroom was massive and full of character, with fluffy towels and complimentary sherry, The Cream tea in front of the open fire was superb, the food in the restaurant for Dinner was excellent.

However what really makes this place special, is the attentive service from the staff, Richard, Brian and Laura could not have been more helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

We shall definitely be back! This place will not dissapoint"!

Have lunched and stayed at Llangoed hall many times,from the week it opened. It has a bad time with the last owner,but today I am pleased to say it has a new owner and it
Now looks back to its old self with the owner spending lots of money both inside and outside
The building. I was pleased today that Brian the M.D is back working there,as he makes a big
Difference to the atmosphere,of this beautiful hotel.

My husband and I spent our anniversary here having spent our honeymoon at this beautiful hotel 18 years ago.We were warmly welcomed to a well appointed suite and enjoyed a complimentary sherry before dinner.Champagne and canapés were served in the drawing room where we made our selection from the interesting and locally sourced menu.Dinner was superb and we enjoyed attentive but not intrusive service. Coffee and petit fours at the fireside , listening to a pianist rounded off a lovely evening.A hearty Welsh breakfast set us up for an idyllic walk through the beautiful surrounding grounds.We really didn't want to leave!Ps, the Penhaligon toiletries were wonderful

We've been visiting Hay-on Wye for about 15 years and only just found this wonderful hotel.
The service was superb and the food excellent. The restaurant was closed for a function so we ate great food off the lounge menu in front of a roaring fire.
The accommodation was spacious and comfortable and the setting was wonderful.
It's about 20 mins from Hay but well worth the extra drive.

Have now stayed here twice - on my wedding night and for weekend break soon after a return from Afghanistan. It is a special and very beautiful hotel with wonderfully attentive staff, clean and comfortable rooms and good food. Not a huge amount to do on the doorstep apart from a few walks so a car is essential. Somewhat expensive but none the less highly recommended!

This review is based purely on a quick lunch in the lounge yesterday.
A friend and I flew in by helicopter following a last minute booking. My chum, a hotelier and gourmet chef, ordered the local sausages and mustard mash and I ordered a toasted BLT.
The whole experience was flawless. Our food was utterly delicious ( I mean eye-wateringly lovely!), served by polite, friendly, well-trained staff. Everybody smiled.
The restaurant was busy, lovely Christmas decorations..the only thing missing was a Welsh Choir singing carols.
We LOVE Lllangoed to bits and will definately bring our ladies for a stop over.

My boyfriend and I have spent a fantastic weekend at Llangoed hall and we cannot wait to return.
From the minute we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the friendly porter who couldn't do enough to help us check in and unload. Our room (State Delux) was BEAUTIFUL - bathrobes, slippers, fluffy towels, gorgeous toiletries and complimentary sherry, water, elderflower and oranges, overlooking gorgeous scenery. Our meal that evening was fantastic, superbly cooked and our host was charming! We were welcomed into the lounge with canapes, taken to the dining room once we had placed our orders and enjoyed a private dining experience as we were the only ones there. Fantastic wine list and after dinner we relaxed in the adjoining lounge area by the log fire with coffee and petit fours.
The next day we ate a beautiful welsh breakfast where our waitress couldn't do enough for us. The morning was spent walking, playing on the beautiful piano, followed by a lovely afternoon tea, leaving just enough room for a gorgeous meal from the lounge menu (available to eat in the lounge if like us, you are too full for the 4 course meal in the restaurant!) We then finished off the evening with liqueur coffees in the games room playing snooker and relaxing.
On our final morning we tucked into another beautiful welsh breakfast and packed up our room and sadly checked out, where again the lovely porter helped us with our luggage.
We can honestly say it was absoloutely amazing and have decided to return to llangoed hall every year just before Christmas in order to relax and prepare for the festive period. Little extras such as tea and coffee bought to our room in the morning, beds turned down whilst we were at dinner made us feel so at home, we didn't feel like we were in a hotel, it felt like our own manor house which is their aim.
We cannot praise the staff enough for ensuring our weekend was fantastic and the decor of the hall is stunning! Roll on our return in 2013!
