Good Hotel Guide Review

In springtime, wisteria festoons Jean-Pierre Mifsud’s 18th-century manor house, an ‘oasis of tranquillity’ set amid orchards and woodlands in the Taw valley. The atmosphere is one of ‘peace, comfort and relaxation’ – ‘yet it’s reasonably close to places of interest for active days’. There are oriental rugs on wood floors, and books to borrow by the log-burning stove; larky murals in the drawing room and restaurant add personality. Throughout, ‘universally charming staff make you feel welcome’. Overlooking the terrace and garden, bedrooms vary in size. Each room has individual (traditional or more modern) style, and every one is supplied with ‘all the necessities’, plus mints, fresh fruit and home-made shortbread. At dinner, sample chef Richie Herkes’s ‘excellent’ three-course menu (including, perhaps, crab cakes, smoked salmon boudin, tomato concassé; loin of Ryeland Mendip lamb, dauphinoise potatoes, asparagus) or go for broke: ‘the unmissable tasting menu, the best we’ve had, is very special for lovers of fine food’. In Wales, the owner’s Lake, Llangammarch Wells (see entry), shares the same cosseting feel. (MC)

Guest comments

'Very special place for our anniversary celebration which was discreetly acknowledged by the staff with table decoration. The Tasting Menu is not to be missed: the best we have had for content, balance of ingredients and flavour. Although top end at £90 (includes wine),it is available at the moment as an upgrade on the first night which is a very special offer for lovers of fine food. Excellent staff, comfort and relaxation, and reasonably close to places of interest for active days. ' - Mary Coles - October, 2015
'A worthy addition to the Guide. We enjoyed a very fine dinner ' - Stuart Smith - June, 2012
