“Beautiful hotel and grounds, shame about the Sunday meal”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We were attracted to this place not only because of the setting but also because of the lovely and enticing restaurant menu. The hotel is certainly very comfortable with lovely grounds, made special by the River Irfon running through the grounds. However, our idea of choosing a great meal from the menu was dashed by the fact that we ate on a Sunday, when the normal menu was unavailable and replaced by a Sunday roast - not what we would have chosen had we known (the website makes no mention of this). The food was properly cooked, but uninspiring and with a stodgy Yorkshire pudding, and poorly presented. The waiting staff were also uninspiring. So our 'special meal' was a let-down, though the breakfast showed that there was some cooking talent around.

What a tremendous place it ticked all the right box's for us we wanted to get away to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and what a find this place was. The location is in such a beautiful environment it really was like being a million miles from anywhere, the room we had number 6 with a four poster bed was fantastic, we both slept like logs on a really comfy bed. The staff really could not help enough they addressed our every need and made us feel very special, We ate both nights in the hotel and the food on both occasions really did match the hotel in every way in being fantastic, We are really happy to of found such a gem of a establishment and will be back not sure when but will be back before the next 10 years comes round.

Room Tip: Room 6 was value for money in our opinion

Stayed here recently for one night on my way to North Wales. It was very busy on the night that I was here. The majority of the reviews here are very good and I would certainly stay here again if necessary. Critics should bear in mind that this is a three star hotel in a Victorian listed building and there is a limit to what can be done here.

The room I had was "homely" perhaps but perfectly comfortable. The bathroom a bit old-fashioned but quite clean and tidy.

Staff pleasant and helpful. I had dinner which was OK but for me the main course was too big and a bit greasy although my normal diet is small portions of light food. Maybe I shouldn't have ordered it!

A bit pricey. Beautiful setting - the grounds and the surrounding countryside.

My girlfriend and I went to stay at the hotel for two nights as part of a package. The service and welcome was excellent with very friendly staff and brilliant service throughout our stay. Would recommend staying at this hotel to anyone. Thoroughly recommended. Enjoy :-)

On arrival we had a very warm welcome from the staff with a very nice afternoon tea. Dinner was served in our own private dining room and was superb food (a bit slow as some were having a 7 course menu!) next morning breakfast was very good and but service was not the fastest! But staff were doing there very best!

Our second evening was again very good-a superb dinner was served in our private dining room followed by a quiz organised by two of our members. Service was a lot quicker. Breakfast was served promptly to allow us to check out and set off on our Sunday run. The hotel was perfect for our Annual Rally and would recommend it to all our friends.

Room Tip: We were fortunate enough to be booked into the Swansea Suite which was a lovely large suite with a f...

We had a two night stay via a Living Social voucher which included dinner, bed and breakfast and the seven course taster menu on one night. The hotel was comfortable and clean and the staff were friendly and relaxed. The taster menu in particular was excellent - well cooked, beautifully served and satisfying without being pretentious. The availability of a specially brewed beer was an added bonus. Making other local beers available would be the icing on the cake. Overall, a fantastic stay that proved to be unbeatable value for money too.

We have just spent two nights at this hotel and were very impressed. The seven course taster diner was superb as were all the other meals. The room was very clean and comfortable as was the rest of the hotel. The 27 acres of grounds were peaceful and a delight to walk round. The staff were all very efficient and helpful. We intend to return at a future date.
