I recently booked a night away at Nanteos for our anniversary. I paid £250.00 for a luxury double room, evening meal and breakfast, so it was a real treat for us! We were really pleased when we arrived at this beautiful country mansion. Unfortunately, the rest of the experience didn't live up to our first impression.. The staff were welcoming and the room was lovely except for a crack in the paint work,which for the effort of a bit of filler and paint, you would have expected from a luxury double!
Most disappointing was the meal. The resteraunt wasn't open because of a wedding the following day, which we were not told at booking or arrival. So we ate in the bar. The cost didn't include any drinks and after a disappointing cocktail at a cost of £10.50 each (very diluted moquito) we ordered from the a La Carte menu. My husband ordered the steak, and when we asked what cut it was, we were simply told 'cut of beef'..which was flame grilled (burnt) on the outside and had no flavour! My smoked mash had no seasoning and the Game Wellington was ok! Following the meal we were asked our views we told two seperate waiters our issues with the food, which was pointless as they just acknowledged our comments and nothing else!
Overall, for such a special occasion we were really disapointed and expected a lot more for the price. Would not recommend..
