“A delightful Spring Break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2006

We recently had a most delightful break at the Caer Beris Manor Hotel. We were able to visit so many interesting places in the area - a lovely drive around the Dams in the Elan Valley was truly spectacular; a tasty lunch in the sunshine looking towards the Brecon Beacons; a visit to the amazing book shops at Hay-on-Wye, not forgetting the most enjoyable time spent at the Craft Centre on the way back to the hotel. There were still many trips we would like to have had time to pursue - we shall be back. Each day we looked forward to returning to the hotel for a nice tray of tea brought to us in the lounge, a quiet spell for reading and time to prepare for the evening.

After pre-dinner drinks in front of the log fire in the lounge bar, dinner was served in such a restful atmosphere by most friendly and attentive staff. Even the chef walked round to see if everyone was satisfied with the various dishes, chosen from a fairly extensive menu and all of which were very appetizing. After a quiet drink of tea or coffee, taken in the lounge, we were quite ready to retire to our bedrooms, which were warm, comfortable, well-equipped and very attractive. One could settle down to a peaceful night's sleep looking forward to the delicious breakfast which we knew would be brought to us in the dining room the next morning.

The 27-acre grounds are a dream for the able, and a beautiful and interesting sight for the less able. The whole atmosphere is so relaxing and friendly - perfect.

The building is really impressive as you drive up the long drive. The river Wye winds its way through the well kept grounds. Very welcoming staff but our 2 main compliants were that our bedroom and bathroom were freezing. The heating came on late afternoon but didn't really do much to heat the room and the bathroom had no form of heating what so ever. We decided to eat in the restaurant as the choice of other pubs / restaurants was not great in the surrounding area. What the menu offered the food did not deliver. The soup was watery and tasteless and the main courses and dessert were very overpriced for what you got - £4.95 for 3 scoops of cheap ice cream! All in all a pleasant weekend in some beautiful countryside but wouldn't rush back to Caer Beris, however having read the other reviews maybe we just picked the wrong weekend.
