“Highly recommend if driving; Magnolia Room is quiet, relaxing, lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2011

Visited late May, 1 night (next time we'll stay longer). Hidden from A487 by shady tree-lined drive and flanked by lawn, sheep pasture and nearby farms. Easy to reach by car. Quiet is interrupted only by songbirds. Ample, convenient, safe parking. Ask for the Magnolia Room - newly renovated, lovely large suite overlooking lovely pastoral scene. Separate from but easy 1/2 minute walk to manor house. (There were no weddings during our stay; the Magnolia Room would be a reasonable distance from wedding activity held in the Manor house.) The Magnolia feels very private, with an excellent bed, good storage and comfortable chairs. The bathroom is large, well-lit, with new upscale modern plumbing (excellent shower) and gleaming marble and large mirrors. No WIFI in our room but was free and available in dining room and bar in manor house. There are several comfortable lounge areas in stately, lovely old manor house, and a friendly staff; and the dining rooms are quite nice, also with gorgeous views. Dinner was uninspired. Breakfast, however, was well prepared, hearty, using high quality, fresh ingredients, and much enjoyed. Less than 10 minutes south of Aberystwyth, the hotel is in little Chancery, which is more quiet, safer and far easier to access than any hotel we saw in the city. Perfect for women traveling alone. This is a "hidden gem".

The staff were friendly without being obtrusive, lovely food, beautiful setting, large comfortable room in the Magnolia Courtyard, can't find anything to criticise - a very enjoyable 2 night stay.

First impressions were OK and the entrance has an impressive staircase. Unfortunately as with many British hotels it did not live up to expectations. We had 2 double rooms both long overdue refurbishment. An eclectic mix of furnishings which included a chair in each room that you couldn't sit in without putting cushions down to sit on - very uncomfortable. Bathrooms were even worse with carpet on the floors and one of them had very dirty stained carpet and skirting boards, the bath panel was rotten and falling off. Because of our late arrival we opted to eat in the hotel bar. The bar area had recently been refurbished and was OK, the food was good when it came but as with all the service at this hotel we had to wait for a long time. We got the feeling they were understaffed and maybe had just taken over the hotel. Having said that all the staff were polite, friendly and helpful. If the owners refurbish the bedrooms and bathrooms and sort out their service, they have a nice hotel with potential.

An excellent stay whilst dropping our son back at university in Aberystwyth from our home in Kent. Stayed in one of the superior doubles in the grounds - very good room with excellent decor and facilities. Didn't have an evening meal but very tasty breakfast with good service. Not the cheapest hotel in the area but will definitely be coming back and would recommend to anyone doing the 'child to uni' trip!

After getting new owners this wonderful country house is finally getting some TLC lavished on it. It's not there yet, and there are a few rough edges they've inherited, but I'm sure it won't be long until it shines again. I only stayed one night for a party so didn't get much chance to explore it fully, but the staff were very helpful, and nothing was too much trouble. The room was large and traditional, in keeping with the house. This is a bit of a bargain at the moment if you want to stay in a genuine old country house. A beautiful house in a beautiful location.

This is a lovely country house hotel. It was having substantive building work done on ground floor so hard to judge it properly. They also plan to refurb the bedrooms next. This is needed as they are a bit dated in style. Large rooms though. I suspect it will eventually be quite excellent. As it is it is comfortable and pleasant. The grounds and views and setting are lovely. The staff are friendly and attentive. The food is very good. Best cooked breakfast I have had for a while. Menu is sourced with local produce. The hotel is old fashioned but in the good sense of the word. The prices are very fair and it is good value. It is a nice location for Aberystwyth town which is a ten minute drive away.
