Good Hotel Guide Review
The ‘genuine warmth’ that imbues Robert Smith and Arwel Hughes’s much-loved rural B&B impressed Guide inspectors in 2016 as much as it does returning guests, who rave about the hosts’ ‘enthusiasm, support, flexibility and desire to please’. ‘Everything – the comfort, the design, the cuisine, Robert and Arwel’s relations with their guests – is idiosyncratically personal.’ Arrive to ‘great pots of tea and tiered platters of Arwel’s home-baked treats (including a couple of Welsh cakes for good measure)’. In ‘comfortably jumbly’ gardens, the house is filled with paintings, sculptures, bibelots; ‘the snug library is a hideout for book lovers’. ‘Our spacious, well-furnished bedroom came supplied with travel guides and books, an exhaustive tea tray, a packed information binder; the window seat surveyed a painterly landscape.’ A ‘sociable’ dinner of ‘refined comfort food’ (‘and plenty of it!’) may be served, by arrangement. ‘We woke to a royal breakfast: fresh chrysanthemums on the table; an impressive buffet spread; perfectly prepared eggs. We felt very spoiled.’ (GM Jones, HM Lusby, Michael Frayn, and others)
