We stayed at the Penhelig for a weekend in early April and it was idyllic. We booked one of the Bodhelig rooms which are stunning and the view of the estuary is lovely to take in from the private balcony.
Unlike some of the other reviewers we had never stayed here before and I really don’t understand how it could have been any better in the past.
We were greeted by welcoming staff and shown to our room. We arrived mid afternoon and decided to have a glass of wine in the bar before taking a walk. The hotel has a very homely yet professional feel to it. The staff genuinely want you to have a positive experience.
Our evening meal was another part of the stay that exceeded our expectation. The menu was very appealing and exciting, rivalling the best restaurants in Cardiff. We both chose fresh fish dishes followed by a mouth-watering dessert.
We stayed for 2 nights in total and there are no complaints from us, I guess the only downside is that a few people are hanging on to the past and not recognising that the current management and staff maybe different to the old owner’s team but they are running a fabulous little hotel with plenty of character & luxury.
We will definitely be going back.
Oh my, I almost forgot to tell you about the breakfast . . . . what a treat. Having breakfast cooked by a professional chef is soooo nice, part of the benefit of staying in a hotel with such a high standard of restaurant. As well as tasting yummy, everything was presented beautifully, even the scrambled eggs and bacon! Awesome.
