“Sunday Sleepover”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

My daughters bought my husband and I a 'Sunday Sleepover' at this inn for his birthday. It was such good value as it included Sunday lunch, supper and breakfast the next morning.
The bedroom and bathroom were very comfortable and we slept in a four poster bed.

Lunch was excellent with a varied menu as was supper. We could have had 3 courses at each meal but could only manage one at supper.

Breakfast was a feast.

Wonderful countryside and Hay is only about 10 miles away.

Highly recommended. I hope my daughters repeat this gift next birthday

What a fabulous place! The food is fantastic, the service very warm and friendly and they always went the extra mile to look after us. The Sunday night package is excellent value. Lunch, dinner, bed and breakfast are all included. You have to be hungry to take full advantage of it but an hour's walk on Sunday afternoon in the beautiful countryside surrounding the hotel helped sort that out. The beds are very comfortable and looking out of the window in the morning to see the chickens running around in the garden made for an idyllic rural scene. Recommend very highly.

Had a brilliant weekend here last autum. Wonderful setting, great food and superb service. It's no wonder they are so booked up that we couldn't get back til this October. My only (very small) gripe was that they describe their "budget wine" as very affordable. It was very good but maybe I'm getting old because £18 isn't exactly cheap! That said everything added up to very good value for a really enjoyable weekend of walking, eating and relaxing with old friends.

Lovely atmosphere as soon as you walk through the door. The welcome was warm.

We perused the menu in the comfy sofas in front of the log fire. The staff were not at all perplexed with my vegetarian requests and had even remembered my husband had mentioned it to them when he booked. That personal touch and simply acknowledging my dietary requests was very much appreciated! (See my comments on The Hardwick in Abergavenny!!). Eating out as a vegetarian tends to be hit and miss, but The Griffin did a really good job. Top marks for that because in my experience top eateries can be sniffy about vegetarians!!!

The service was attentive, friendly, relaxed but not intrusive. The food was absolutely excellent - a great dining experience and a lovely evening.

We regularly take our dog away with us and this year we have mainly done bed and breakfasts for a night or two and i have to say The Felin Fach Griffin is the best we have stayed in so far.
First of all before we booked we had a lot of email communication with Edmond and he was extremely helpful and thorough on our behalf. We were impressed with the website due to it being very informative and the fact they also offer one night stays which a lot of places don't do now.
I am normally the one who hunts for places to stay and books them in our house so having done all the hard work i often find i am disappointed by the majority we stay in, this place did not do this in any way.
They included the dog which is a positive for me, dog friendly is a easy thing to say or type but not an easy thing to carry out. Felin Fach Griffin had a doggy cupboard on the landing near the bedrooms with lots of stock for dogs, towels, sheets to protect furniture, doggy biscuits, bowls the list continues. In the room there was no smell of dog, no stained carpets, no ripped chair covers and bedding, all of which i have experienced in the past due to staying with our dog we have been given dingy virtually dirty wrecked rooms as they seem to expect all dogs to misbehave and make a mess. Felin Fach Griffin treated our dog how we treat him, he is part of our family and all ready in the room was a bowl filled with water, a doggy towel with two biscuits waiting for him. For us there was a very high four poster bed, a table laden with tea and coffee making facilities, homemade biscuits, the tea was tea leaves in little jars and there was a tea pot with strainer and a cafetiere for the coffee.
One surprise for us was the lack of television as it was just something that i thought each room would have had however it didnt bother us and it does say if you would really like a television they will bring one to the room for you which is especially good if you have children. There is a Roberts radio in the bedroom but we didn't use it. We had an ensuite bathroom with a bath and shower over the bath. Its decor was rustic and fitted the character of the building perfectly had it been a new building i would have expected pristine decor but it wasnt. The bath was fab water was really hot and to have a bathroom with a view was amazing and the toiletries were full bottles of lovely soaps and shampoos not the typical sample bottles. A little negative to the bathroom was the window rattled a little in the wind but im sure if it had become a problem the staff would have tried their hardest to resolve it for us. The Bedroom had built in storage as well as slim yet tall bedside drawer units. There were ample plug sockets too i think 3 double sockets and 1 single.
We did find out that wifi is not available due to their location this is explained in the booklet in the bedroom, we also found mobile phone signal very weak so bear this in mind if you need to be in touch with people regularly. This is not the Hotels fault its purely a location issue a price you pay for stunning views i think.
The staff did say if we could use their office computer if we needed which was very helpful.
Now food - one word covers it FANTASTIC. We stayed for bed breakfast and evening meal and i have not felt so full for so long. We were given a choice of the whole menu starters, mains and desserts but there was no way we could eat all three. I would say the prices if you were paying for them seperately may have been a little expensive but having eaten there i would happily pay £14 - £19 for a main course when you get fresh, tasty dishes made to your liking and bread that is so fresh it is still warm . They also have an extensive range of drinks available and the staff were extremely knowledgeable and helpful if you are struggling with making choices on either food or drink. The staff go out of their way never have i been somewhere where everyone is professional in their work, always polite, considerate and friendly.
The breakfast was also delicious they used the room that had the open fire in it for breakfast with tables set out for each room with a member of staff waiting to show you to your table and explain the choices available. On a seperate table there were three seperate loaves of homemade bread for you to cut to your preferred thickness, fresh fruit, yoghurts , cereals and homemade museli which i tried and was so good i asked if i could take some home with me. There is then also a choice of cooked food all of which was cooked to perfection, eggs from their own hens, and as much local produce as they can use. You would be welcome to eat eat and eat if your stomach could take it. Tea and coffee and apple juice is also provided along with a selection of homemade jams etc if you fancy a little something on your toast. Once you have finished breakfast you are not rushed to leave you can take your time sit in the bar area on the big comfy leather sofas and read the morning papers along side the open fire, we did this to let our breakfast go down a little.
I don't think i need to say anymore i would stay again and we will be looking at trying out their Cornwall based hotels.

Went for a meal fri night. The restaurant is lovely with nice natural wood tables , hops etc . Staff are very nice and welcoming. The menu was varied and interesting . The price is on the higher end in comparison to other places in the area that offer a similar good quality interesting dishes. I never mind paying more as I love dining . However I was disappointed that my wine was hardly chilled. I had a truffle custard starter that I thought would be a bit different . Tasted a bit like rich butter lumps mixed with nice but not particularly exciting peas . Wasn't too impressed with the starter . The pork was presented well and had lovely purées but was a little tough as was my sons beef dish. It was busy which maybe why attention wasn't paid to detail. Am likely to return but do feel slightly over rated

2 nights staying at the Felin Fach Griffin near Abergavenny where the food was superb and the staff very friendly. The rooms have no TV but a Roberts radio which makes a nice change and plenty of reading matter. Not surprising as Hay On Wye is just a few miles up the road.

Plenty of boiling hot water and great pressure in the showers!

I know it's perhaps just a small consideration for some but the quality of the cotton sheets have made me determined to source better next time when purchasing bedding for home because I thought I did. Obviously not!

Room Tip: Avoid room 3 which is above the kitchens!
