My wife and I took 5 friends to the New house for a meal celebrating our 50th Wedding anniversary. We all met up in the lovely cosy front lounge with a real snug atmosphere. We had selected to have the special daily lunchtime £12.95 2 course (including a glass of house wine) meal. After a relaxing chat the charming waitress Jo came to advise us on the choices available and then very efficiently took our orders. After a short while Paul our waiter came to advise us that the meals were ready to be served and showed us into the impressive dining room. We were fortunate in being able to have a lovely table in one of the front windows of the hotel so we were impressed to see that we were having one of the best views overlooking the city of Cardiff. The decor of the room was outstanding with lots of attractive paintings and wallpaper all in keeping with the history of this hotel. From what we were served it was obvious that the hotel only uses seasonal produce as the quality really shines through. All our meals were excellent in taste,
beautifully presented, and the service provided by Jo and Paul were exceptional and the fantastic ambience matched it all perfectly. We all agreed that we shall be going back to the New House for a birthday meal which is coming up.

The receptionist was outstandingly helpful as my companion was looking at the accommodation to see if would be suitable for her aged relative. We had lunch, just two coures and it was very pleasant. There was a small glass of complimentary wine included in the price. The service was good, not to overbearing. Their Christmas programme looked most inviting. I would recommend it.

Facilities for our Rotary business meeting were good.
Refreshments as required were provided - flip charts were readily available and the ground floor room was easily accessible.
Car parking was good and the views over Cardiff City brilliant.

My sister and I decided to treat ourselves to an early evening meal at Sequoia. The hotel is in a beautiful setting and the restaurant itself is beautifully decorated. However, we were disappointed with the consistency in quality of service at all levels and part of the meal itself was unpalatable due to an over-use of oil, which spoiled the overall taste and effect. After the meal we ordered coffee - it was very gritty and rather tepid: when I got home home and checked the bill, I discovered that we had paid £7.00 for one cup of coffee each - the bill stated that this was the amount for coffee and homemade chocolates, which were completely absent. We were really disappointed, as we had hoped to use the hotel for a future family celebration,
