César award in 2011

In a peaceful position beside a stream on the edge of the Brechfa forest, Annabel and Stephen Thomas's country hotel is a 16th-century farmhouse (later a school). It offers a 'very warm welcome' and the 'outstanding' value. The public areas have thick exposed stone walls, fireplaces and beams. In warm weather, pre-dinner drinks can be taken on the 'manicured' lawn of the large garden. Stephen Thomas uses Carmarthenshire produce for his daily-changing menu: 'Dinner was divine,' says a visitor this year (a fellow hotelier). 'We had perfectly prepared lobster and a gorgeous fillet of beef with oxtail; dessert was pear and almond sponge with honey ice cream.' The bedrooms are simply decorated: 'Our immaculate room was like a suite; it had a large bed, good sitting area; a well-appointed bathroom and all the amenities you might expect.' Breakfast, in a sunny room, is 'leisurely and civilised'. A well-stocked buffet has fresh fruit salad, cereals, organic Welsh yogurts and home-baked bread. The cooked breakfast has home-cured bacon, black pudding, free-range eggs. (Richard Morgan-Price, AD and J Lloyd)
  • Very hopsitable, dog friendly and super local food.

  • Our second stay at this charming hotel. The experience was just as enjoyable. High standards have been maintained in all areas. Steve produced a good choice of outstanding food, cleverly enhancing the flavours of high-quality local produce. Most important was the personal but not intrusive attention of the owners during a seven-day stay.

  • Comfortable room. Daily-changing menu of excellent food. Outstanding value. Welcoming hosts and friendly atmosphere.

    John and Eileen Avison, 24/01/2013

  • We were greeted warmly. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We chose our dinner over a drink in the very pleasant bar. The food was excellent, served without delays. After our first meal we asked if the vegetables could be cooked a little more – and they were. Breakfast was a feast, cooked to order. And the price was reasonable.
