Good Hotel Guide Review
‘It’s like going home,’ writes a regular Guide reader this year, who considers Jean-Pierre Mifsud’s country house hotel ‘a regular haunt’. The 19th-century hunting and fishing lodge stands in extensive lawns stretching down to a lake on the River Irfon. Inside, find inviting sofas and armchairs amid antiques, paintings and original features. The ‘comfortable’ grand lounge, with fresh flowers, up-to-date magazines and views across the lawns, is just right for bara brith at afternoon tea. Fans praise the ‘superb’ staff: ‘The young team are great fun and all very pleasant.’ Choose among traditionally styled bedrooms (up a ‘creaky old staircase’) in the main house, and more contemporary accommodation in the purpose-built lodge. In the evening, settle into the ‘first-class’ dining room for new chef Stephen Crichton’s modern Welsh menus, perhaps mushroom risotto, Parmesan, hazelnut cream; fillet of mackerel, beetroot, oyster. A ‘good’ breakfast is served in the modern orangery: smoked fish, a selection of cereals, a full Welsh with laver bread. Northcote Manor, Burrington, England (see entry), is under the same ownership. (Richard Morgan-Price, Michael and Pauline Bastick). This hotel is a member of Pride of Britain hotels.
