We booked the hotel as a last minute deal they had, just wanted to get away to relax. Staff are really friendly and helpful, the rooms were absolutely fab! Superb views looking out on the beautiful west Wales countryside, rooms were very clean. Shower was great, nice & powerful and the bed was lush! Queen size that you can sink into. The rooms are also very spacious and modern!! We ate in the restaurant in the evening which was al la carte, it was very good and staff were always at hand if we needed anything. We also used the gym and sauna which was ok. Small but has some up to date equipment and was nice & quiet. Overall we had a lovely time!! Would definately recommend.

I have been to the Plough on many occasions and have usually enjoyed the food. On this occasion the food was very good, but the ambience was very lacking and cold. Service was poor and the staff seemed to be quite indifferent in their service. The peppermint tea was quite tasteless and very disappointing. I tried to attract the attention of one of the waitresses on three occasions for the bill and on the fourth occasion she responded and she wasn't that busy. I was given a menu when I arrived, but when the other two arrived they weren't given menus and we shared the same menu, no-one on the serving staff seemed to notice that. The music system wasn't very good in that for background music I could hardly hear anything and that lack of background in my opinion spoil the ambience. Would I recommend it - yes for the food but not for anything else. Such a shame. Again with the Plough it seems to vary from "perfection" or "average". The Chef & kitchen staff can be congraulated but not the front of house staff on that particular night. The Plough has a very good reputation locally and I would agree with that in respect of food but not as I have said for the service and standards on that particular Friday night.

Room Tip: Don't know anything about the rooms as I haven't stayed there.

My Wife and I had the oportunity to get away for the night and chose this hotel because we had been there for lunch a few months ago and liked it. We were not disappointed, from the moment we arrived we found the staff welcoming, friendly and professional, anticipating our every need.the room was of generous proportions, tastefully decorated and clean with a wonderful view. Larger than double bed (king/queen size, not sure). Good T.V. And a fantastic shower. The restaurant was spacious and plenty of space between the tables. The food was fantastic with generous portions and well presented, the service was excellent, we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience which was neither rushed or that we had to wait too long between courses. On the morning of our departure we decided to stay for Sunday lunch and found the qualities of service and food to be consistent. My Wife and I would like to thank the management and staff for making our stay so enjoyable. I heartily recommend this hotel and we will be staying there again, hopefully for longer next time and take the oportunity to visit some of the local tourist locations.

Room Tip: The room we had was on the ground floor and rear facing with a fantastic view of fields/hills

Went with work colleagues for an evening meal. It was more pricey than I was expecting so I was uneasy at first, but this soon disappeared when I saw the quality of the food. I ordered the sirloin steak and it was cooked to perfection, and the garlic buttery sauce that came with it just complimented the meal fantastically. it had a nice mixture of class and accessibility in regards to what kind of food and the atmosphere that was present. the drinks were rather pricey however, and the approach of the staff I found to be quite mixed. some were very friendly and helpful, others were a bit short. there were various staff serving our large party though, so it could have down to stress.

all in all I would recommend this to others, but make sure you bring enough cash - they're quite difficult about paying by card individually in large parties (there's no nearby cashpoints, either!)

We booked The Plough Inn at Rhosmaen on a whim and it definitely paid off. The staff are very friendly and cannot do enough to help.

The room was fantastic and very clean; the facilities are not plentiful so be prepared. There is a gym and a sauna (which we did not use): the addition of a pool would be fab!

The food in the restaurant was very nice and relatively average prices though we did the drinks were a bit pricey!

There are numerous gardens, houses and villages to see in the area; we visited The Botanic Gardens of Wales which were brilliant and highly recommend!

All in all a very good find and would definitely return.

We first reviewed in June 2012 after we stayed using a Groupon voucher and were a little disappointed with certain aspects of the hotel. However we stopped off on our way back from Cheshire in the hope we could make Sunday lunch. It was quite late so I enquired if they were still serving food. The staff were very friendly and helpful and immediately found us a table. We had an amazing Sunday dinner - lots of tasty meat and vegetables followed by mouthwatering desserts. We left feeling very "full" and decided our second visit was certainly much much better than the previous one. We will be back.

The restaurant was disappointing as it resembled a holiday camp cafeteria with curtains screening off some areas, cheap furniture and no atmosphere. The food was fine, but not special and the whole experience felt rushed as if on a production line rather than in a 4 star establishment.
