Good Hotel Guide Review

In ‘flourishing gardens’ near the coast, Neil and Zoë Kedward’s ‘beautifully quiet’ hotel is ‘a real haven – particularly when you arrive in the dark after a long drive’. Encouraged by ‘young, charming and helpful’ staff, Guide readers in 2017 willingly sank into the comfort of this stylishly refurbished 18th-century mansion. There are squishy sofas and cheering fires; candles and cocktails; a ‘library of good books’ to browse. In the main house and three cottages, ‘luxurious bedrooms’ are stocked with home-made biscotti and fine bath products. ‘It’s not cheap’, but Allister Barsby’s ‘commendable cooking’, perhaps a ‘chicken and foie gras terrine to die for’, is ‘well worth the money’. ‘We had the seven-course tasting menu one night with the recommended flight of wines – a well-considered and unusual selection.’ For the less hungry, a short room-service menu’s the ticket. ‘I took supper, a light and savoury Welsh rarebit, on a velvet sofa by a delicious crackling log fire, in a pleasing wood-panelled sitting room. (It was awkward to eat from a coffee table, however.)’ ‘A sterling centre’ for touring Pembrokeshire. (Tessa Stuart, Peter Jacobsen)

Guest comments

'The setting is bucolic. Everything is harmonious and pleasing to the eye. The only downside was that we were a bit too hot at night. Had we been staying more than two nights perhaps this could have been remedied by requesting a lighter duvet or a sheet and blanket. The food was accomplished and showed flashes of imagination with unusual but successful flavour combinations . A strong if somewhat pricey wine list. Breakfast was wonderful and varied.

'This is a real haven when you arrive in the dark after a long drive. I was put in the comfortable Blue Room from which however, you can hear conversation at reception .I took supper by a delicious crackling log fire on a velvet sofa in a comfortable wood-panelled sitting room.. They have a fine library of good books to read. The staff were young, charming and helpful, and it is beautifully quiet. ' - Tessa Stuart - February, 2017
'Very comfortable, excellent service. The food was excellent, with a la carte and five or seven course tasting menus. New chef Allister Barsby, ex-Gidleigh Park, is well worth the money. We had the seven-course on one night with the recommended flight of wines - a well-considered and unusual selection. Cooked breakfasts were excellent but the buffet table was a bit disappointing. ' - Peter Jacobsen - December, 2016
