Good Hotel Guide Review
Pheasants scatter on the lawn around this Italianate mansion standing ‘proudly’ by the River Usk, where Guide inspectors in 2016 found ‘a fine house filled with warm, amiable staff’. ‘Clearly a popular place’, the ‘superb’ sporting hotel has been in the same family for three generations; Susie and James Suter are now in charge. ‘It never fails to please,’ say guests this year, on their twelfth visit. ‘Things don’t change, which suits us.’ The drawing rooms have ‘a casual grandeur’ (‘interesting’ paintings, fresh flowers, books and magazines); the conservatory, with palms and wicker chairs, has a colonial feel. Summer Sundays call for lazy lunches, alfresco on the terrace. Borrow a pair of wellies and follow the ‘impressive’ walk among ‘magnificent’ specimen trees, then return for Karl Cheetham’s modern dinners, perhaps ‘very nice’ chicken and wild mushroom ravioli. Period bedrooms, decorated in country house style, each have their own character; splurge on one with a balcony overlooking ‘the handsome lichen-printed stone terrace, the rushing river and the hills beyond’.
