Good Hotel Guide Review
‘An attractive building’ in a ‘tranquil setting’ with a panorama of Carmarthen Bay, Melanie and Lucas Boissevain’s 19th-century neo-Gothic house is today as a smart, ‘happy, well-run’, hotel. Architectural features include striking ogee-headed doors and windows, moulded plaster ceilings, an Adam-style fireplace. ‘The public rooms are extensive and comfortable,’ writes a reader this year, ‘and the lady who greeted us was charming.’ Bright, chic bedrooms sport cool coastal shades. ‘Our room was very large, most comfortable and well furnished. The spotless bathroom well equipped.’ A superior double has a four-poster, a sofa-bed for an extra guest, views across to Caldey Island. Dog-friendly coach house rooms, approached by an external staircase, have a balcony with table and chairs. Downstairs, ‘a minor niggle was the canned music in the bar’. In the restaurant, young chef Jerry Adam uses foraged and home-grown ingredients; he ferments, pickles and preserves, creating small portions of intensely flavoured, somewhat challenging food. For example, crisp garlic beef rib, anchovy, purslane. Breakfast brings local butcher’s sausages, free-range eggs, laver bread. An atmospheric restored chapel is available for private hire.
