Llangoed Hall was the third and last hotel we stayedl during our one week trip to Wales. As we spent most of the week at Portmeirion, and Llangoed Hall was designed by the same architect as Portmeirion, we had been interested to compare the two. I am glad to have seen another piece of work by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, but I cannot think of any reason to go back there.
The dinner was most disappointing, easily the worst among what we had during our holiday. The salad was either sandy or moldy. The summer pudding, tasted as bad as it looked, really stodgy and starchy. Even Waitrose does a much better job. The rest mediocre. At £45 per person, I would expect better, much better. The room was spacious, but some of the furniture looked shabby. The staff seemed willing, but willingness goes only so far. Of the three hotels we stayed, it was the most expensive and the least satisfactory. Unless somebody else is paying, I am not going back there again. And if I did go back, I would avoid dinner there.
