We went on a discounted two day package that included cooked breakfast, afternoon tea on one day and two courses on the other day. We werent treated any differently because of the discount, but there were some supplements on the menu.

The hotel's main asset is its superb location, hidden away in the countryside on the Welsh border. It is a 150 year old pile with only 10 guest rooms, so we can forgive the owners for not maintaining every inch as well as they might. The lobby and dining room are delightul.

The young ladies who serve in the dining room and bar and also on the front desk sometimes are really super friendly and efficient and I hope that the management appreciate them.
Drinks are a bit pricey.

Overall it was a lovely quiet and relaxing break and I would recommend it. Some other guests said that in the school holidays its best to avoid it, especially at weekends as it can be very busy in the bar and restaurant which are open to residents on the adjacent (but unobtrusive) caravan park .

Room Tip: Go on a Monday or Tuesday

A Big thank you to Vanessa and Kim and all the staff at Mellinghton Hall. Our Son Daniel Edwards married his beautiful bride Lauren Walker and their day was made very special. Nothing was too much trouble. It's a fabulous building, the rooms are lovely and spacious.Unfortunately the weather stopped us from a outdoor wedding ceremony but the staff made the inside ceremony just as lovely and special for them.The food was plentiful and everyone had a great time :-)

We recently stayed at Mellington Hall it was for our Wedding anniversary. We had a two night break and the first night we had food in the Bar the second night the meal was included in the deal, we had a 2 course meal included but could not have main and desert had to have starter and desert, we neither of us like to have starters and would have preferred a sweet. We have had had the option on other deals. We went down for dinner at our booked time and we were asked to wait in the Bar and our orders would be taken and we would be called in when the food was ready. We had hoped to have one of the window tables but when we went into the dinning room there were already two couples in there both at the window tables, neither had ordered food and were in fact just sat drinking. We had our meal which took approx. 1 hr and neither couple had started to eat when we left. My Husband had a steak which was nice but the chips were a let down looked like frozen chips, I chose the pork belly which was over cooked and the roast vegertable were almost black not what I would call first class cooking. The room was OK but again the towels were frayed and no showere cap was supplied. We paid twice as much for this deal as we normally do and quite honestly did not get value for money. The staff are helpful but quite slow and some of the tables in the dinning room were not laid properly. The table clothes look great but are so big that you can catch your feet in them when you leave the table. On the whole not what we expected and would not hurry back.

Past glories of this


magnificent building have been lovingly restored with sympathy by its present owners who have captured its charm , warmth, and ambiance without over egging the cake. The staff cannot do enough for you and go out of their way to make sure that your stay is a memorable one. Being disabled was not an issue as their was always someone at hand to help when and if necessary. The grounds are extensive and immaculate,teaming with wild life. Rabbits hawks and giant carp in the lake were a wonder to behold and the different walks held a different view around every corner. I cannot wait to return and this time book the Mellington suite with its own jacuzzi!!

Room Tip: They are all good!
