Reviewed 22 April 2022

The room at this hotel was very nice but it was obvious there were problems in the kitchen. Guests had to fill in a form to say what they wanted for the following day's breakfast - almost as though someone had to go out and...buy the food from Tescos or the Co-op as they didn't have it in stock in the hotel kitchen. My husband had kippers which were obviously cooked in a plastic bag and not a nice big kipper on a plate. I had cereal and was given a bowl with a small paper bag of museli. It was such a disappointment as we have stayed at the Nanteos Hotel before and we were well looked after. Apparently now they just do bed and breakfast (and the breakfast is not very good), with mainly weddings for the rest of the year. You can have a hot meal in the evenings at weekends - as long as no wedding is taking place - but generally this lovely hotel has let itself down and we are very disappointed.More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel in early April and ate at the restaurant on the Friday evening. The tasting menu was superb - every dish was cooked to perfection and Alec our waiter was brilliant from start to finish. It was such...a shame that the restaurant was quieter than it should be, with SY23 taking a share of custom at the moment. Would highly recommend this place. Ps also the Welsh breakfast in the mornings was up there with the best breakfast I’ve ever had.More

Was extremely disappointed to call at Nanteos this evening for a quick drink with my elderly father, only to be told that they were “open to residents only”. Well, that translates to ‘locals not welcome’. That is, unless they pay for a room there.; but...nobody living nearby are going to be doing that, are they? Reason? COVID! I wonder if anyone else can see the irony here? Us, being the Ceredigion locals, are not going to be the primary Covid spreaders. However, they are happy to put up people from wherever, to come to Nanteos and the spread it around Aberystwyth before they go home. OK, so they might wanting to protect us, from them...but, as mentioned, after they leave Nanteos, they’re free to spread it where they choose, so that doesn’t cut it. So, a local National Heritage of ours has now become a Covid haven for the affluent, who want to escape to rural Mid-West Wales. And by the looks of it, that could be for a long time to come. I won’t be supporting this place when “it’s all over”.More

Came here in May for a night, at the end of a week away. I thought it would be a nice treat for us. How wrong I was. Clearly an old mansion in various states of repair. Tried to go on this theme but the...basics aren't there. The food was decidedly average so not a "dress" event as though, despite the cost of dinner ( Michelin prices). Breakfast was poor and clearly prepared the night before or out of a packet. Simple things were not there, for example the dining room windows were filthy and easily cleaned with a pole etc. The WiFi wasn't great, and some of the decor in public places like the stairs was poor. So it wasn't a treat in fact we left as quick as we could after breakfast, which we hardly are. And the coffee was poor.... And why do the staff wear black gloves which they don't take off...More

Enjoyed afternoon tea here whilst overlooking the beautiful Welsh countryside. Everything was freshly prepared and very tasty, the bara brith and Welsh cakes were exceptionally yummy... Such an amazing place, full of history and has been authentically restored to retain the feel of a country...house. The staff were friendly and very helpful and allowed us to look around the beautiful house, do not miss the music room if you visit! DiolchMore

My wife and I spent 4 days over Christmas at Nanteos with our little dog. From the moment we booked the communication was very good, they wanted everything just perfect for our Christmas stay. It really was a home from home feel, we was very...well looked after and nothing was to much trouble. The mansion was lovely and our room Colonel Powell was quite special., the whole setting was outstanding. But our biggest Thanks goes to Jon, he works so hard making sure everyone and everything is just perfect for everyone. He is a proper people person and is very very good at managing his great team of staff who also works very hard. Jon is a great asset to Nanteos and we hope he stays there for our return in the new year. Well done to you all.More
