Good Hotel Guide Review

‘We always look forward to staying.’ Run with their son and daughter, 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. 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

'Excellent in all aspects; staff attentive and friendly, food excellent, daily newsletter of things to do, very dog friendly with a washing station on decking that had warm water and dog shampoos. ' - Clive Ringrose - May, 2019
'A friendly 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.. There is a wide choice for breakfast Attractive gardens and good outdoor seating make a perfect resting place to read . ' - Bob and 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
