Good Hotel Guide Review
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. ‘All the staff were attentive, helpful and polite.’ The lounge (‘very comfortable’) is ‘tastefully furnished’; stacks of books to borrow line the ‘great log stove’. A series of staircases (‘designed perhaps by Escher’) lead to the bedrooms. Snug or spacious, traditional or modern, with terrace or garden views, they have ‘all the necessities’. ‘Housekeeping was excellent’, as were Chef Richie Herkes’s menus: ‘a good choice, well cooked’. The tasting menu is ‘unmissable’. Breakfast maintained standards, with good vegan options. See also sister hotel The Lake, Llangammarch Wells (main entry).
