Good Hotel Guide Review

Roses, roses all the way: on the remote Lleyn peninsula, Chris and Gunna Chown’s ‘lovely’ restaurant-with-rooms occupies a Georgian manor house whose name translates as ‘Rosehip Hall’ – a fitting moniker for this ‘romantic’ place embowered in woodland, with wisteria draped over the veranda. Guide readers have long praised the ‘relaxing ambience’ and ‘friendly staff’ – an impression helped along, perhaps, by the home-made bara brith served at afternoon tea. All the bedrooms overlook the gardens; two of the suites accommodate a family. In the pretty blue dining room, local produce in season, with fruit, vegetables and herbs from the kitchen garden shape the ‘well-presented’ modern dishes, perhaps loin of Welsh lamb, sweetbreads, burnt honey, lavender curd, cooked by Hugh Bracegirdle, who has returned to the fold. Chris Chown does the cooking at breakfast. Spend the morning exploring the ‘delightful’ grounds: there are places to sit; a path leads through a yew tree gate to the stream. (MC)

Guest comments

'Standards are high. Our courtyard room was large, well furnished. Bath a bit awkward to climb in and out. The courtyard was well supplied with tables and chairs. Food was nicely prepared and well presented, especially the starters. Staff were friendly and helpful, especially the breakfast ladies. We very much enjoyed our stay. ' - GC - October, 2016
'Beautifully furnished hotel. We had a very comfortable room. The service was very friendly. They responded to our concerns on the first night re long delays between courses and this was rectified during the remains of our stay, a response which was to their credit. The gardens are a delight, and this is a very pleasant location and hotel for exploring this beautiful coastline. ' - Mary Coles - May, 2015
'Our second visit, and we thoroughly enjoyed it once again. Our attic room was spacious and had a large, comfortable bed and chairs to relax in. The huge bathroom had a circular bath and strange taps on the shallow wash basin. Our friends were in a room in the cottage which they said was very nice. The cooking was still of a very high standard. We had home made bara brith with tea on arriving, delicious canapés with pre dinner drinks, and dinner itself was good. My soup with truffle cappuccino was exceptional. Good breakfasts - freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice, cereals or yoghurt and fruit, and well-cooked dishes. It was a treat to have leaf tea. The staff can’t do enough for you. It is a lovely area to explore, the new gardens are delightful. ' - Sara Price - September, 2014
