Good Hotel Guide Review

‘We always look forward to staying.’ Miles and Audrey Hunter’s ‘tranquil’ small hotel on the Welsh border received a flurry of praise from new and regular visitors this year. ‘After a trying journey, we were ushered in by unfailingly pleasant staff. Memories of the drive were already fading by the time we reached our room.’ In the ‘warm, welcoming’ lounge, daily newsletters, maps and guidebooks help plan the day, aided by log fires, newspapers and big armchairs. However, on a return visit in 2018, one Guide regular found the lounge ‘still rather cold for relaxing’. Individually styled bedrooms, with newly upgraded en suite shower, are peaceful and ‘spotless’. ‘Our beautiful room had plenty of space, splendid views, a private terrace and an efficient bathroom with lovely toiletries.’ Outdoor seating is a ‘restful’ place to while away the afternoon before (newly promoted) chef Alex Lloyd gives British concoctions a modern twist – ‘a joy’. ‘Breakfasts were as appetising as ever, with several new options since our last stay, including avocado on sourdough with grilled bacon. The poached eggs (my test for quality) were excellent.’ ‘I want to go back now!’ (Bob and Jean Henry, Mary Hewson, and others)

Guest comments

'A friendly and efficient welcome. We had a free upgrade. The bedroom at the front of the house was well appointed with a comprehensive information pack. The hotel welcomes walkers and provides details of local walks together with maps. A morning newsletter gives a weather forecast, a walk for the day and places of interest to visit. Dinner was a joy.. We appreciated the good selection of separately served vegetables, and were offered more! There is a wide choice for breakfast including plenty of fresh fruit and some excellent granola. Attractive gardens and good outdoor seating make a perfect resting place to read . ' - Bob & Jean Henry - September, 2017
'We visit for a couple of nights several times a year. It is one of the only hotels that I have looked at over the past few years that has a good website. Constant repetition of “excellent” seems unnecessary. A welcome addition was the introduction of some new breakfast dishes. ' - Deborah Cross - March, 2017
'This is a lovely hotel, where one is treated like a welcome guest. There are plenty of comfortable places to sit indoors, on the terrace or in the beautiful gardens, looking across the valley to Wales. Our room was small, as we had been warned when we booked, but we had plenty of storage space, a well-stocked hospitality tray and a thoughtfully planned bathroom. The dinners are imaginative and varied. Breakfast buffets were inviting and the cooked dishes were excellent. We enjoyed reading the accompanying morning newsletter. ' - Mary Hewson - April, 2016
'We were pleasantly surprised by the nicely decorated, airy Coach House bedroom with great views and a whirlpool bath. Most of the towels were a little worn. Our bed was very comfortable. The food was generally delicious. Rump of Welsh veal with wild mushroom risotto and red wine jus was a delight. The selection of fruit at breakfast was one of the best we've ever seen. Cooked breakfasts were well cooked and tasty. Staff were always charming and very helpful. ' - Steven Hur - September, 2015
