Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great tour, brief history of the castle and of how gin came about, before tasting. Your included 2 drinks plus the options to sample both rum and gins at the bar.
Just don’t put in the postcode from the website….you'll end up on a farm!

Peter and Hugo were fabulous , they patiently explained everything from the tour history to the cocktail ingredients.
They went over and above to make our experience fun. One of the best nights meeting likeminded people . Totally unexpected.
Well done to the team x

Visited with my wife and my in-laws for afternoon tea to celebrate my wife’s birthday.
Fantastic service within minutes of our arrival.
Afternoon tea was not only delicious, but also very generous portions!
We all had a wonderful afternoon. Thank you to all the staff at Hensol Castle for an amazing afternoon!
We will definitely be returning soon.

Very informative, good historical value and a real learning experience on the history of Hensol Castle, as well as a history of gin. Very good guide and host. As I was a driver, I couldn’t drink, so was given a goody bag. I would recommend for gin lovers and history lovers alike. Beautiful grounds and a lovely experience.

I arranged a tour at the distillery at tge beginning of October for a group of 20 friends. From asking to book the tour to the tour itself Rose arranged it all and couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. The actual tour was amazing and Hugo who took us round and explained the history of Hensol Castle and Gin and how they make it at Hensol was very knowledgeable as well as amusing. Would highly recommend anyone to go and try Hensol Gin.
