Good Hotel Guide Review
In beautiful grounds near the Dyfi estuary, this chic restaurant-with-rooms occupies a 16th-century manor house once owned by Queen Victoria. Owners John and Jennifer Talbot took over the much-loved country house hotel after the death of its matriarch, Joan Reen. Today, it is a dining destination where guests ‘murmur in delight’ over chef Gareth Ward’s ‘superlative’ Michelin-starred tasting menus. Slow Food–inspired dishes fully embrace the foodie philosophy: in the evening, multi-course dinner menus are served over four hours. Linger, then lay your head in one of the individually styled mountain- or garden-view bedrooms, some seductive, some sleek, some with a soupçon of fun, all cosseting in their own way.
