Good Hotel Guide Review
Around a working windmill built in 1806, a former temperance hotel has had a multi-million-pound facelift, becoming ‘Wales’s first contemporary art hotel’. The architect owner has lavished ‘loving care and attention to detail’ on the redesign, says its nominator this year. The bedrooms, decorated in shades of chocolate and white, have a safe, a mini-fridge and espresso machine, along with robes and slippers, aromatherapy toiletries. Rooms in the Oriel wing at ground-floor level have a terrace; those above have a Juliet balcony. A suite in the windmill tower has a spiral staircase from the lounge to the old observatory, with panoramic views of the St David’s peninsula. Overall the style is ‘smart city type’ with lots of dark wood, perhaps ‘slightly incongruous’ in Britain’s smallest city. Art, as ever, is personal. The paintings – many especially created by street artists – were ‘not to my taste’. The entire property is hypoallergenic, hence a no-dogs policy. In the dining room, chef Simon Coe’s menus showcase local ingredients in such dishes as lemon sole, cod tortellini, lobster emulsion, broad bean and samphire. ‘Dinner was excellent, as was breakfast.’ (Robert Cooper)
