Many thanks Breconglesni,

I have passed your comments on to the housekeeping team and they were very disappointed to hear of this. I am glad you had a wonderful stay other than this and look forward to seeing you again very soon.

Great hotel in an idyllic location. Large rooms very comfortably furnished to look like a bedroom rather than a hotel room. Food was of exceptional quality nd a good range of wines and ales available also. n terms of vale for money this establishment would have to be rated as exceptional and we would recommend it to all those seeking more than your usual chain hotel or staying in the local pub. Very quiet surroundings and comfortable beds make for a good sleep.

Nice old fashioned hotel, great location, close to Aberystwyth.
Staff are very friendly and the food is excellent.
Rooms are large, we had a twin room, a bit old fashioned, but had great views over mid Wales and the nice gardens.

I stayed here for 2 nights for work, and I couldn't fault it. The views are amazing, very peaceful, quiet and great if you want to just relax. My room had amazing views. Food and service is very good, and I have never felt so relaxed in a hotel to be honest (even if I was there for work)! Parking is good, so no problems there. It's about a 3 mile drive from Aberystwyth so handy for the town also. Breakfast in the morning is the usual cold buffet but they also do a good cooked breakfast. I would highly recommend this hotel to stay or if you are nearby to visit for an evening meal. I don't seem to be easily pleased by hotels these days (fooled by good photos obviously taken by a Budding David Bailey) but I was very surprised by this one. Highly recommended! Try the cream tea too - delicious!

I think I've stayed in 5 different hotels in Aber by now, and this is by far the most pleasant I've experienced. It's outside the town on the south, and NOT walkable into town, so you'll need a car or a taxi. There are rooms in the main building, and others attached around the back, which is where I stayed. The room was excellent, very comfortable, very spacious, great views.

Breakfast was a treat, and consistently good (I stayed a working week). Didn't stay for dinners, as there are plenty of nice places to eat in town (reviewed elsewhere).

There is a fine lounge for relaxing and reading in, but not a whole lot else to do. It's fantastically quiet, which is great, or dreadful, depending on your circumstances. It was exactly what I wanted. It had loads of car-parking, and free WIFI that was a little hit-and-miss.

I am hard to please, but I will certainly be back. Value was exactly as I would have expected. Neither expensive nor cheap at the price I paid.

Room Tip: My room, behind the hotel, looking out over the fields, was fantastic. There were other rooms, oppos...

This is a traditional farm house type hotel with some additional rooms built onto the main building. I have stayed a few times now and feel a review is valid.

The rooms are very old fashioned and the main building a little grubby in parts. The view across the mountain is fabulous though and the staff are always courteous and friendly. The menu for dinner is limited but what you get is beautifully prepared and very tasty.

If you're a person looking something modern, then this isn't it, that said I don't know anywhere better in the Aberystwyth area.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms outside the main building for a more modern feel. Unfortunately Wi-Fi is only avai...

Only stayed one night, arriving latish and despite a problem due to failure of agency to confirm booking we were dealt with courteously and efficiently. The bedroom, on the first floor, was spacious with comfortable bed, armchairs etc. with superb view over the Ystwyth valley. The breakfast was first class with efficient yet friendly service. An altogether satisfying experience and strongly recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3 and would request the same on our next visit
