Good Hotel Guide Review

Thick stone walls, beamed ceilings, works by local artists, an inglenook fire and ‘friendly, hospitable hosts’ give this 16th-century country house-turned-hotel heaps of rustic charm. A bonus: in clement weather, ‘drinks on the manicured lawn, before dinner in the pretty dining room, are divine’. Annabel and Stephen Thomas, the owners, are ‘great fun’; the atmosphere is ‘relaxed and informal’. Bedrooms, some surprisingly large, are simple in style, but ‘immaculately maintained’ and well stocked with ‘all the amenities you’d expect in a five-star hotel’. In the restaurant, choose from Stephen Thomas’s local produce-packed, daily-changing menu, perhaps including smoked Cardigan Bay mackerel and horseradish pâté, Ty Mawr apple and mustard seed chutney; organic Welsh Black beef fillet, braised oxtail. At breakfast, ‘leisurely and very civilised’, there are pork-and-leek sausages, eggs Royale with Severn and Wye valley smoked salmon, sometimes even juice from the garden apples. Country lanes stretch out, afterwards, and walks in the Brechfa forest – all moss, thick ferns, ancient trees and busy birdlife – await. More reports, please.

Guest comments

'Our second stay at this charming hotel. The experience was just as enjoyable. High standards have been maintained in all areas. Steve produced a good choice of outstanding food, cleverly enhancing the flavours of high-quality local produce. Most important was the personal but not intrusive attention of the owners during a seven-day stay. ' - I & S Brackenbury - May, 2013
'Comfortable room. Daily-changing menu of excellent food. Outstanding value. Welcoming hosts and friendly atmosphere. ' - John and Eileen Avison - December, 2012
'We were greeted warmly. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We chose our dinner over a drink in the very pleasant bar. The food was excellent, served without delays. After our first meal we asked if the vegetables could be cooked a little more – and they were. Breakfast was a feast, cooked to order. And the price was reasonable. ' - PW Taylor - September, 2012
