Good Hotel Guide Review

‘One comes for the food, and it doesn’t disappoint,’ reports a trusted Guide reader after a 2018 visit to Susan and Bryan Webb’s Michelin-starred restaurant-with-rooms in a ‘peaceful, rural location’. The ‘main event’ is served in dining rooms ‘where an air of quiet calm prevails’ with Bryan Webb’s menus exploiting seasonal Welsh produce, perhaps loin of venison with goat’s cheese gnocchi, port and elderberry sauce. ‘We had two excellent meals. Nothing complicated or pretentious. Turbot on leek risotto with red wine sauce was delicious and, at £55 for two courses, the meal was not overpriced.’ Service is ‘professional, friendly’. The other part of Tyddyn Llan’s formula is its ‘tastefully decorated, well-furnished, comfortable rooms’ with ‘uplifting’ contemporary hues and a ‘decent bathroom’, slightly let down by ‘captive coat hangers’ and ‘poor bedside lights’. Small niggles, however. Tyddyn Llan is run with aplomb by Susan Webb. ‘Madame is constantly watchful, ensuring everything is as it should be while giving guests her undivided attention. This is the French model, and a very good one.’ Breakfast with ‘decent’ coffee and ‘everything freshly cooked’ is ‘fine’. (David Hampshire, and others)

Guest comments

' The house has been sympathetically restored. Madame is very much in evidence. She gives undivided attention to her guests. All our meals were excellent. The matching of ingredients shows flair and balance. The wine list is all you would expect, an excellent range of wines by the glass. The staff work really well. You feel welcome, ' - David Hampshire - January, 2018
'What a find in the middle of the wildest countryside! We were cruising through on a roundabout way to the Lake District, friends told us to pop in for tea and we ended up staying for three days! The greeting was as if we were visiting friends, the rooms were cosy whilst sumptous, and the dinner was better than we eat in London. Great wines at extremely good value, great food, brilliant hosts and a wonderful time, ' - David Singleton - October, 2016
'Difficult to find words to describe how good this place is. Rooms fine. Decent size, comfy bed, modern bathrooms. Quiet, great views from the bedroom windows. Not totally wonderful, but absolutely fine. Brian is the best cook in Wales. Michelin-starred cooking and generous portions, nobody will leave here hungry. We ate in all four nights and everything was wonderful. The staff are friendly, and Susan Webb is a real gem, running the place with good humoured efficiency. Our fifth stay, there will be more. ' - Peter Anderson - August, 2016
