Good Hotel Guide Review

At the end of a mile-long drive through ‘lovely surroundings’ of rolling pastureland, Chris and Lisa Hutton lay on an ‘absolutely perfect’ welcome at their ‘striking Victorian pile’ in ‘handsome’ landscaped gardens. The greeting sets tails wagging, too: pooches receive a blanket, a water bowl and treats. ‘Spacious, pleasant’ public rooms are decorated with ‘interesting pictures’ and ‘good traditional taste’; from the veranda, there are ‘magnificent views’ down the Teifi valley. The great green vista continues through the bedrooms, too: all of them look out on to garden, valley or woodland. The best, and largest, rooms have a Juliet balcony, but even the smaller of the ‘classically styled’ bedrooms have ‘their own character, with a special ornament or two’. (The lift doesn’t access all rooms; guests with special requirements should ring to discuss the best options.) At lunch and dinner, chef Alex Rees cooks ‘enjoyable’ dishes using local produce and garden-grown herbs, perhaps Welsh pork belly, cheek and loin, celeriac, pommes Anna. Spend the day strolling the grounds (‘our dogs appreciated the lovely walks off the lead’); in fine weather, a stone terrace captures all the sunshine. (GE, AW, and others)

'We both enjoyed our stay and the six-course tasting menu. Lovely surrounding and hotel. Great service. ' - Glen Ellis - March, 2016
' A classy hotel where you will enjoy a relaxed and refreshing stay, set in lovely grounds in the beautiful Welsh countryside. Very comfortable rooms with everything you will need . All the staff were welcoming and efficient. Delicious food at breakfast and dinner. ' - Angela Wlliams - March, 2016
'This is an amazing hotel. We had the 7 course taster menu. Each course was delicious and just the right size so that you had room for the next one. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Ours overlooked the lovely gardens. The breakfast was just as good and set us up for a walk round the surrounding countryside. ' - Maureen Stander - August, 2014
'We booked a last-minute luxury country hotel deal. It was worth every penny. The hotel and gardens are well kept and the room was modern and comfortable with a pretty view of the hills. The food was of a high standard and outstanding value, and there is a welcoming and elegant atmosphere and a consistently high standard of service . The staff know how to make you as a guest feel valued. ' - Charlotte Parsons - May, 2014
