Good Hotel Guide Review
In a woodland garden that stretches to the River Dee, this historic Victorian manor is today a sumptuous hotel rich in antiques and fine original features. Smaller pleasures abound, too: board games in the library, lawn games outside, a pond whose every fish is named Alan. Individually decorated bedrooms (some dog friendly) have little luxuries, such as organic toiletries and complimentary Madeira. A barn and stables in the grounds were being converted into duplex suites as the Guide went to print. At mealtimes in the Henry Robertson fine dining room or informal Huntsman bistro, sustainably sourced produce is the focus of chef Gareth Stevenson’s cooking. Just beyond, Snowdonia national park appeals.
