We stayed in a 'better room' for 2 nights with a deal which included the taster menu and afternoon tea. The hotel is an stylish italianate country house, with a gothic feel; originally a family home but a hotel since 1975 and the present owners arrived in 2000. Very attractive location just outside Lampeter amid beautifully kept grounds. The public rooms are huge with very high ceilings and all have views over the valley. The decor is a little old fashioned as the owners have gone for a traditional feel, in keeping with the area and there is potential for improvement. The bedrooms vary in size and furnishing. Ours (7) was spacious, very comfortable and spotlessly clean AND had full tea and coffee making facilities tucked away in the wardrobe. Service was unfailingly pleasant and efficient and nothing was too much trouble. The taster dinner of 7/8 courses was well constructed, well cooked and presented. The lamb was so good I opted for it again the following evening. The lobster (a starter) was exceptional value. The wine list was very comprehensive and reasonably priced. Breakfasts were excellent with no chopped fruit in site.
Staying at the Falcondale is a bit like stepping back in time, but in these hectic days, that can be a very good thing and I would recommend the hotel to couples looking for comfort, good food and friendly service.
