Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The setting in the Welsh Borders could hardly be more romantic.’ In a wild and secluded valley where the Black mountains rise up all round, this characterful hotel is tucked in next to the timeworn remains of a 12th-century Augustinian priory. It enters the Guide thanks to a recommendation from a trusted reporter in 2017. Modest accommodation is up a medieval tower embraced by ivy (reached via a steep spiral staircase, with aid from ‘helpful, friendly’ staff), or in a Grade I listed prior’s lodging adjoining atmospheric abbey ruins. ‘Years ago, the rooms looked like a country auction. After a sympathetic refurbishment, the bedrooms are tasteful, restful, minimal yet appropriate for the ancient building. My room had a comfortable bed with fine bedding, a chair, a dressing table, good bedside lights and not much else.’ There’s neither TV nor Wi-Fi, nor even a mobile phone signal, but the ‘beautiful landscape’ is yours for the adventuring; a track behind the ruins leads to Offa’s Dyke Path. Return at dusk for Welsh ales and pub dinners, perhaps an abbot’s beef casserole, in the vaulted crypt. (Anne Thackray)
