Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Faultless and elegant,’ writes a reader after a visit this year to William Griffiths’s ‘fine, family-run hotel’, forged from a 19th-century coaching inn. Its days as a meeting place of the society dedicated to the Welsh language are long gone, replaced by ‘wonderfully comfortable’ bedrooms speaking the lingua franca of contemporary hospitality – Villeroy & Boch bathroom fittings, aromatherapy toiletries, robes, extra fluffy towels. The ‘exceptionally helpful and cheery staff’ are an international lot, too. Original artwork, selected by the keen eye of Pauline Griffiths, William’s mother and owner of a local art gallery, decorate the ‘excellent choice of public rooms’, including the popular Foxhunter bar. There is a sense of drama in the restaurant with its deep burgundy walls, where a ‘first-class’ dinner, courtesy of chef Wesley Hammond, might include grilled prawns and steak, miso, honey and chilli sauce, coconut rice. Leave room for the Angel’s ‘justly renowned’ afternoon tea, and an extensive breakfast, perhaps involving a Mimosa cocktail of fresh orange juice and champagne

Guest comments

'Everything was spot on down to the radio tuned to Radio 4 and provision of 'proper' coat hangers. Their bakery, next door, is superb. Guests for my 70th birthday celebrations were equally impressed, and our meal at The Walnut Tree was perfection. (I believe it is partly owned by the Angel). ' - David Sefton - June, 2018
'An elegant, comfortable hotel with an excellent choice of public rooms to relax in. The staff, all of them, were exceptionally helpful, willing and cheery. We enjoyed a first class meal in the restaurant and various bar snacks and afternoon tea during our stay - faultless. Hope to return very soon. ' - Mrs VA Alexander - June, 2017
'A fine family-run hotel. Staff are professional yet friendly. The decor-designer had good taste. Our bedroom was wonderfully comfortable and well lit. The bathroom, too, was expansive, with a fine walk-in shower. We liked the overnight “complimentary shoeshine”. The dinner menu was short but enticing. Everything tasted as good as it looked. Service was exquisite. In the bar, a pianist played softly on an electronic keyboard - unlike the canned music that so often mars the atmosphere in otherwise excellent restaurants, it was restful rather than intrusive. The breakfast menu would have satisfied a Welsh XV prop forward. ' - TT - January, 2016
