Good Hotel Guide Review

‘You won’t be disappointed,’ writes a reader in 2016, of Chris and Lisa Hutton’s ‘classy hotel’, a Victorian Italianate mansion standing in extensive landscaped grounds. ‘The staff are like friends’; the whole is ‘very welcoming’ – not least to Fido, who can dine off his own menu alongside you in the conservatory. Public rooms are tastefully, traditionally furnished, with ‘interesting’ pictures, magazines and a baby grand piano. Bedrooms vary in size and outlook (‘each has its own character’), but all are comfortable, in country house style. The best has a Juliet balcony and views over the Teifi valley dotted with sheep; a room with two double beds is ideal for a family. In the ‘elegant’ dining room, chef Alex Rees’s  menu showcases Welsh produce, with crab and lobster from Cardigan Bay, artisan cheeses, home-grown herbs. ‘Delicious’ dishes might include rack of spring lamb, rosemary jus, port jelly; Perl Las cheese and leek risotto. Sample the ‘comprehensive’ buffet at breakfast. A good countryside base for exploring West Wales; Cardigan Bay is 40 minutes’ drive away. (Angela Williams, Frederic Jones, Glen Ellis)

'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
