Good Hotel Guide Review
‘A very welcoming place.’ Deep in the Taw valley, Jean-Pierre Mifsud’s wisteria-hung 18th-century manor house is a characterful ‘high standard’ hideaway, surrounded by orchards and woodlands. ‘Accommodating’ staff are attentive and polite. The lounge (‘very comfortable’) is ‘tastefully furnished’; stacks of books to borrow line the ‘great log stove’. Snug or spacious, traditional or modern, with terrace or garden views, bedrooms have ‘all the necessities’. ‘Housekeeping was excellent’, as were Chef Richie Herkes’s menus. The gourmet tasting menu with accompanying wines is ‘unmissable’. A luxury spa opened in May 2019. Sister hotel to The Lake, Llangammarch Wells (see main entry).
