Good Hotel Guide Review

We don’t wish to blow our own trumpet, but we like to think the Guide played a small part in the runaway success of Wales’s first contemporary art hotel. One of our top discoveries of 2019, the architect-owned and redesigned Edwardian hotel, built around a Georgian windmill, is set to add 20 new bedrooms by March 2020. It is ‘pristine, immaculately furnished, in beautifully landscaped grounds’, writes a trusted reader this year. ‘They have thought of everything.’ Spacious, chocolate-and-cream bedrooms are hypoallergenic (no dogs), with terrace or balcony, espresso machine, mini-fridge, bath, shower, aromatherapy toiletries. ‘The bathroom was the best we’ve experienced.’ The Tower Suite has a spiral staircase to the belvedere overlooking the St David’s peninsula. Staff are ‘attentive and welcoming’. Many of the paintings on display are by local street artists. Sous-chef Sam Owen has now stepped up as head chef, creating such dishes as malt-glazed halibut, scallop tortellini, pea, pancetta, from prime Welsh ingredients. ‘The extensive breakfast menu’ includes freshly squeezed orange juice, freshly baked pastries, home-made preserves, ‘well-cooked’ hot dishes.
