Good Hotel Guide Review
A morning newsletter lends a personal touch at the Hunter family’s dog-friendly hotel in rolling countryside with views to the Welsh hills. It is run by Miles and Audrey Hunter with son Tommy and daughter Charlotte (sibling Henry has The Castle, Bishop’s Castle, see entry). ‘On arrival, we were treated to tea and scones,’ writes a reader on a return visit, touched that the kitchen had baked a gluten-free scone for him. Bedrooms are in the main house and coach house, with two new luxury rooms in a garden annexe. Several have a spa bath, some a private terrace. Our reader had ‘a super-king-size bed, comfy armchairs, and home-made brownies to boot’. Another added that the decor was ‘a bit tired’, but ‘the hotel has intrinsic charm’. Guide insiders who enthused about the ‘wonderful location, building and garden’ were dismayed to see plastic flowers. At dinner the food was ‘tasty, cooked to a high standard’. At breakfast, ‘the menu is extensive, and some dishes are inventive’, but one couple with small children found the service slow. (Steve Hur, John Barnes, and others)
