We have just spent a lovely afternoon here as part of a large group having afternoon tea, food was lovely and plenty of it, staff very pleasant and nothing was to much trouble. Lovely setting, pity it was raining, the gardens are lovely.

We returned after eating here a couple of months ago and on that occasion everything was first class, we were also keen to dine again due to a recent award at the restaurant. Our return visit on Saturday evening was disappointing with a very average experience. The sea bass were minute portions, although I recommend the hake.
Our wine was literally plonked on the table, and we took the top off and helped ourselves.
There were plenty of staff around but some inexperienced working with little assistance in the restaurant. We were told it was a busy evening due to a large party of private diners.
Regrettably not an experience we'll be repeating for some time.

I stayed here for two nights on a recent visit to the area.

17th century listed building, with elegantly-furnished public rooms. My room. with a view of the lake, was comfortable and more than adequate.

All the staff I encountered were friendly and helpful, and behaved as if they enjoyed their jobs.

Other reviewers have commented positively about the food, and I can only agree strongly. Six-course tasting menu with wine flight on the first evening, This was excellent, with the wines wide ranging and well matched. Some unusual choices among them, including a local - yes, local to Abergavenny - chardonnay, which was first class. The table d'hôte menu and a glass of Ironstone zinfandel on the second evening. Unusually and commendably, almost all the wines on the list are available by the glass at a price pro rata with the bottle price (ie a 175ml glass for a quarter the price of the bottle).

Breakfast was not up to the same standard as dinner. The buffet was poor. The cooked breakfast was, unusually, presented in 'fine dining' style, ie the food piled up in a tower - sausage and bacon on the bottom, tomato and fried bread in the middle and egg on top. In my view, It would have been better presented distributed on the plate in the usual way.. There was clearly a problem in the kitchen on the second morning of my stay. I came down to breakfast around 8am, and despite the dining room being open at 7.30am, I was told that the chef had not yet arrived but would 'be here shortly' to cook breakfast. Plenty of toast and coffee.

In many respects, this hotel deserves a rating of 5 ('excellent'), but I've rated it 4 in view of my breakfast experience. I would be very happy to stay here again if I'm in the area.

We had a travel zoo deal for an overnight stay and 7 course meal and a welsh breakfast. The food was fantastic and would highly recommend the restaurant. We will definitely be returning for food.

We stayed in a deluxe room but it was run down. I would expect an old fashioned themed room with the hotel being older but this is not where our disappointment was. The dressing table was in a poor condition, the carpets were stained/looked dirty and the appliances were very old. The hairdryer has turned yellow over the years.

The room was freezing when we checked in and struggled to get the electric heater to work. It did come on eventually.

Bathroom was nice and clean with a good selection of high quality products.

I'm giving the hotel 4 stars because the quality of the restaurant makes this hotel above average.

Has the tzoo taster excellent offer! We have tried many of these with tzoo, but this is best by far, so far! Lovely place, setting, grounds, hotel , areas all lovely. Room 19 fab views, dual aspect. Furniture bit worn( if that bothers you) its a period hotel so expect this! Service staff excellent. They had peroni beer, our favourite. Choice of first 3 courses fish! Octopus i liked it, husband hates fish, we changed mackerel to wood pigeon ( i dont like ....well thought i didnt!) It was delicious, rich flavours,! Halibut next, delicious! Venison for, main, expertly cooked, so pink and velvety! Big portions for a taster menu. Sweets , there were 2! Panacotta fab, and an amazing choc frothy delight! About 2 half hours of eating! Nice peaceful sleep, good breakfast! Bargain! Def recommend ! Joy salini

DB&B via travel zoo .(£135)
Very impressed . Lovely setting . Excellent food . Good staff.
Upgraded our room ( glad , lovely view & Comfy king )and paid for the flight of wine ( £28 pp)
. Personally would have preferred smaller glass sizes and paid less. Bit of a headache next morning !
The wines would not have been our choice yet it was fun to try and most we really enjoyed with its pairing. Especially lived the welsh sparkling rose.
Enjoyed all the courses , first time for me to like pigeon.
V full by the end though .
Would definitely recommend and had a lovely day next morning visiting Tintern Abbey . Approx 30 mins away .

another visit for the tasting menu - this time a party of 4 and still very good food but wine "flight" selection not to be recommended. Poor value and quality not at the food standard and service at breakfast a disappointment (but they were very busy!). So if you don't want watery tea and coffee and prefer toast and cutlery etc - ASK for it don't just sit quietly waiting. But the food is worth going for.
