“Falling Leaves Getaway”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Our children bought us this weekend package as a 40th Wedding Anniversary present. The Court is a lovely looking building in a beautiful setting with Pen y Fan mountain part of the scenic backdrop. The staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming and we felt that nothing was too much trouble for them. They seem to have anticipated our every need. Our room was extremely comfortable, warm and cosy - the bed too. The breakfasts were amazing and the evening meals delicious. My only criticism would be the lack of green vegetables. Coffee and petit fours in front of the log fire in the lounge rounded off the day. Our last evening saw a horrendous gale cause a local electricity cut. The staff beavered away lighting candles, preparing snacks and doing their utmost to plan an alternative feasible menu whilst contacting the local Electricity Board to obtain updates on their re-connection attempts. When the electricity was eventually restored around 9pm, the staff worked extremely hard to ensure everyone had their full evening meal. This meant they were all working well past their normal hours. We learnt the following morning that another local hotel had cancelled all their bookings, so full marks to Llansantffraed Court. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and would not hesitate to recommend this venue. Indeed, we hope to return next spring with all the family to experience a 'Llansantffraed Afternoon Tea'.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the lake.

The staff are wonderful,so very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. We had Sunday lunch which was superb although green vegetables would have been welcomed,roast potatoes,parsnips and a hint of something "smeared" looked a tad lacking. The hotel is in the most gorgeous setting and the beds very comfortable,however,it is all looking very tired and worn and generally unloved,such a shame. Our bedroom was sadly quite mucky and in real need of a deep clean to justify the cost. Breakfast was quite the best we've had in a very long time and everything served at the hotel is local produce. We would return because of the peace and quiet,comfort and food,but would love to see an improvement in decor and cleanliness.

I visited Llansantffraed Court a few months ago as a potential wedding venue and thought the building itself and the grounds made it a lovely location. Sadly I found the interior to be a little tired and it wasn't quite what we were looking for but I found both the reception staff and the wedding co-ordinator to be extremely helpful and professional both towards myself and to other guests who were checking in to the hotel at the time.

Warm welcome when we checked in. Room was lovely and spacious, only criticism was they must have an insect problem as there seemed to be a lot of dead ones on the window sills and on the carpet. In the bar a couple of chairs looked a bit tired with their coverings hanging off but cant mark them down for that. Had the taster menu in the evening with the paired wines and it was delicious, service was very good. Breakfast in the morning had a very good choice and very tasty. Had a lovely stay in a lovely location.

My now husband and I were grateful to be stranded at this Hotel during a rainy February 2012 due to a broken down car as it gave us time to decide (whilst waiting for AA) what a lovely venue it would be for our long put off wedding!, and how right we were.
August 2013 gave our days of what can only be described as uncomplicated, well run, friendly bliss. Yes there were a few minor hiccups, but even hoteliers are human.
The staff were polite and clearly proud of the establishment, Ken who looked after a nervous bride was a brick, and Lauren masterminded the event with an elegant ease.
Our own and other guests dogs were made to feel they were no trouble (which they weren't being well behaved!) and for that we thank the management so much since they are a big part of our lives. It was so special to have them involved in our day.
Our guests commented on how fabulous the food was and how well different diets had been catered for. Our breakfast was served with precision and no one was left waiting, also wine waiters were attentive.
The evening continued with the fabulous Richard Harris Quartet as recommended by Lauren.
We will definitely soon be back, especially to check out the restored glass house.
Thankyou all for making our Wedding Day so Perfect X

We had a very relaxing three nights at this hotel. We avoided going at the weekend as they seem to be busy then with wedding parties. The hotel itself has the style of a historic country house set amidst beautiful countryside.The bedroom was comfortable, although a few cobwebs in the corner suggested that housekeeping needs to be addressed a little more thoroughly. The bathroom was modern and clean:even though it was not large we had plenty of shelving space for our toiletries.The view from the bedroom window was of a lake (what a pity it is so weed covered!) with a little private church beyond it,providing the perfect venue for a wedding.
The star of the show at this hotel was undoubtedly the food which was absolutely superb. Although the hotel doesn't yet possess a Michelin star, I feel sure that it is only a matter of time before it gets one. The tasting menu on our first night was delightful, but the nine courses defeated us, even though we would class ourselves as big eaters!!How one of the other reviewers of this hotel could possibly say that they had left the table hungry is absolutely beyond my comprehension! I actually preferred our second and third nights when we simply chose the set menu. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and demonstrated really skillful cooking. On those two evenings we avoided feeling over-full as we had done after trying to eat all of the tasting menu.
Certain parts of the hotel have a slightly shabby feel, no doubt indicative of the huge maintenance costs involved in running a house of this age.However, we found the staff to be extremely pleasant and always keen to help whilst at the same time keeping a low profile. We had the lounge and the log fire to ourselves on several occasions.The hotel would not suit those looking for night life or people who want a spa and leisure centre (none exists).On the other hand,if you simply want to relax in front of a real log fire, in quiet surroundings and indulge in gourmet cuisine, then this is the hotel for you.

Room Tip: Ask to overlook the lake and check the size of the bed if you don't want a standard double.
