“Ambience, ethos and service spot on”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

The new owners seem to have done all that was necessary to create a luxurious and fresh interior both in the public rooms and bedrooms. The cleanliness and flow of the public rooms made me think this is a well loved and cared for property. The new carpets throughout added to that impression. The staff took a pride in helping to make us feel 'at home'. It would have been quite easy to curl up in front of the log fire and read a book instead of exploring the beautiful grounds or walking along the Wye river trail which is easily accessible from the hotel. Wellies and umbrellas are available at the door but, even though this is Wales, we didn't need them! Our bathroom was large, airy and spotless with a roll top bath in which to soak - an activity I'd highly recommend. The bed in our lovely state room was very comfortable. We ate in the main restaurant on one evening and in the lounge on the other. Both times, the food was freshly prepared and thoughtfully created. (Llangoed Hall's own duck eggs were used in one dish.) The same was true of breakfast where we were told that the smoked haddock was smoked on site. The service throughout the hotel was discrete and efficient. We were really able to relax and unwound.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay here and we were sad to leave. We felt so well looked after and so relaxed throughout our stay - can't really fault the place!

Room was very clean and newly decorated. The whole hotel is full of character, clean and beautifully presented. Lots of lovely paintings on the walls and plenty of places to sit and relax. The open fires are just lovely.

Can't compliment the food enough and would recommend all of it. We ate from the lounge menu on the first night and couldn't believe the quality as we were sort of expecting it to be like bar food - but it's easily of restaurant quality with regards to taste and presentation! Even the sandwiches were great.
The dinner menu in the restaurant on the second night was a delightful experience, the chef is a genius! The menu is varied and all of the food is divine.

The wine list has over 200 wines to choose from and the ones we had were lovely.

The staff were all so lovely and helpful, nothing was ever too much trouble.

All in all a great experience albeit slightly pricey but oh so worth it for the quality and the service. We can't wait to go back.

I only have one thing I think could be improved and that would be to have tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

Would recommend this place to anyone!

Have just returned from a two night stay, lovely room,great service from all the staff. I think possibly the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in.
The food was very good and very good value, however afternoon tea a little pricey for two cocktail size scones! Although they were very tasty.
The only negative was it was very very quiet in the hotel which is not great as you can overhear everyone else's stifled conversations.

Simply cant get enough of llangoed hall! This is a fantastic hotel with service to match. We love the tranquility and quality tat you get at llangoed hall. Eagerly awaiting the arrival of the spa facilities ( sometime soon we hope!) when I'm sure we will be back again.

Llangoed hall has a distinctively country-house atmosphere and evening drinks are served, not from a bar, but by yourself from a huge selection (dozens of whiskies) on a large antique table in the statuesque drawing room. On the walls are wonderful paintings mostly from the first half of the 20th century, all collected by former owner Sir Bernard. In my corner of the drawing room, there is a Harold Gilman oil of a young officer and a Henry Lamb portrait. There is a whole room of Whistler prints, a Cadell landscape and fine full-length dashing portraits of society ladies - an artists paradise!

The blue dining room has lots of portrait sketches of the period and succulent still lifes of fish and vegetables. Food is sourced and grown on the estate or from nearby Cardiff and the house wine is from the vineyard of a friend of Sir Bernard’s in Provence. My sumptuous bedroom is room 4, and from its many dreamy landscape windows, I could gaze at sheep in the bright green fields with mist wreathing the Black Mountains beyond. The are over 10 acres of gardens and park, leading down to the Wye in the valley below, are lush with lawns, pillars and outbuildings.

Staff can't do enough to look after their guests. As soon as we arrived to the moment we left everyone made an effort to get to know us, remember our preferences and take time to get to know us as individuals. You truly feel welcomed and "at home" feeling. This is a true country house hotel offering fist class accommodation and welsh foods.

I feel reluctant to write a review as I want to keep this place op secret! But alas this place is to good not to emphasise how nice this place really is. An ideal place to come relax and unwind, a romantic escape, read a book next to a log fire away from the city life. We will be back soon but not soon enough!

We completely agree with all the positive comments that have gone before. This place is absolutely fabulous. We particularly loved the "at home" feel to the place which makes it really special - not a reception desk or bar in sight. Impeccable service, beautiful décor, great food. We called in for some lunch and were bowled over - wonderful.

My wife and I booked 4 nights at this wonderful venue as a base to explore the Brecon area. As we drove up to the entrance we were impressed with the setting; the experience continued as we entered the Hall. The stateroom we had was perfect, as was the attention to detail with perfection in the bathroom, the bedroom and lounge area, the main dining room and the various lounges. The staff were perfect; the food plentiful and excellent. We started with tea on the terrace and never looked back with the breakfasts setting us up for active days of touring. A wonderful hotel that treats you as if you are staying in a friend's grand house - we hope we will return.

I booked afternoon tea here as an experience for mum as a birthday treat. We were not disappointed! The service was excellent we were all made to feel very special through out the whole time at the hotel. It is an amazing beautiful house set in a stunning location which made us feel like millionaires. The tea, sandwiches, scones and cakes were all absolutely amazing. I would recommend this experience to any one.
