Reviewed 22 April 2012

We stayed for a long weekend at the Manian Lodge and it was absolutely fantastic, lovely hosts, excellent food and the cleanliness was outstanding. Will be definitely staying there again, cannot speak highly enough of the hotel. First class

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 5 are larger rooms but overall the whole of Manian Lodge is excellent.

well we came we stayed and we enjoyed, room clean and tidy with all you need to enjoy your stay lots of sockets to plug those pesky travel items in like laptops and curling tongs. Food was very tasty and good value we had an evening meal and relaxed in the large comfy lounge area, we didnt see much of Mike as he was beavering away in the kitchen but pleasant company and good service from Julie.

If we are down this way again we would certainly stay here and enjoy Mike & Julies hospitality.

Julie and all the staff were very helpful and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The room was very comfortable and nicely decorated, and the food and service was superb, so much so that we decided to stay an extra night. Will definitely return and recommend Manian Lodge to all family and friends.

I was delighted to find this accomodation for our family visit to Folly Farm, but please be aware that Manian Lodge's website can be deceiving with regard to the self-catering apartments. I wish I had read the reviews on this site about them prior to booking. The hotel itself looked absolutely beautiful, and obviously deserved the stars it was awarded, however, please note that the apartments are NOT graded. Whilst being spotlessly clean, I have to echo what has been posted on this site previously; they are accessed by steps that do not look particularly safe, the fire escape is overgrown with plants, there is a lack of plug sockets, space, privacy from the rest of the family whilst dressing and having a shower is not an option with the trickle of hot water that comes through.
The front door opens into the living area, the floor of which in our apartment was on a noticeable slant, such that it made me feel like I was on a ship. The living/kitchen area has only mainly a huge glass window and between it and the main bedroom. The glass in this window did not appear to be safety glass and I was very worried about my children banging into it. The children's room and bathroom were both only accessible from our bedroom - the children like sleeping with the light on, so thanks to the huge permanently open vent above their door it meant our room was lit up all night too. We had an absolutely horrid night, which was then followed by a ridiculous pantomine of trying to shower. We had booked for 2 nights, but left before the second night as we could face another night in this apartment. I feel very disappointed that the website leads you to believe that the apartments are much nicer than they actually are!

Room Tip: I'm sure the apartements were lovely 40 years ago. They are clean but that's about it.

The Manian Hotel offers a level of accomodation, food and friendly efficient service rarely experienced in the UK.
The room we had (No 5) was large, clean, tastefully decorated and fully equipped with all one could wish. The public rooms, (bar, restaurant and reception) were also both comfortable and showed a real flair for design.
The menu for evening meals was extensive and more importantly the food was of excellent quality and beautiffuly cooked. The full English breakfast was also excellent.
The hosts (Mike and Julie) were did everything to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a high class hotel base in southern Wales
