We stayed 2 mid-week nights here in the middle of a 2 week circuit of England (London & Bath), ScotlanD (Edinburgh) & Wales, arriving by train. The mgr. & former owner picked us up at the train station, just the start of this house's personal service. We picked the hotel because we wanted a real country house-type of stay. With only 7 rooms in a house once owned by Queen Victoria and in an out of the way location and acres of grounds, this was it. There was only 1 other couple the first night and 2 the second. We had everything almost to ourselves, but we spent much time talking to the first couple and discovered that people from the UK come here for the food. We can see why. It was the best food of our trip & we ate at michelin starred restaurants in London & Edinburgh. The chef came out and discussed what he had for dinner that night. No menu, just really fine food. The staff was equally good with good service & simple friendliness. The azaleas and rhododendrons were mostly in bloom and the gardens were peaceful and wonderful. We took an enjoyable drive through some of nearby Snowdonia National Park, but the hotel is the star here. It's definitely not cheap and it's not luxurious in a modern way, but with more staff than guests we were treated royally and the house is historic. The rooms are large, well furnished with antiques and comfortable. We hated to leave after only 2 days. Americans don't come here much because it's out of the way, but they should.
