“Very good wedding reception.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

We would like to thank Bryngarw House and its staff for an excellent wedding reception this autumn. The location is great and if the weather is kind the grounds are a wonderful bonus. We had a marquee linked to main building which worked out very well. The buffet / carvery meal was good quality and plentiful.

We stayed before and after the wedding. The conservatory / dining room was very good. We enjoyed the evening dinner and the breakfast would set you up for the day. There are a number of nooks and crannies in the hotel to read or have a quiet chat.

The hotel could do with a facelift while retaining its quaint, welcoming feel. The grounds were very nice. The flower beds around the hotel were pretty but needed a bit of weeding.

All in all we were very pleased.

We have been coming here for years and came back for the first time in a few years this weekend, food still wonderful, service very friendly, not rushed and excellent value.
I agree with te comments that it could do with a little updating decor wise, but still clean and in good condition.

Great food, give it a try.

We visit regularly but lately it has improved again! Complimentary extras between courses and delicious bread. Portions are not huge but you'll struggle to finish if you have a wonderful trio of desserts. Coffee also comes with unusual, absolutely delicious petit fours. Difficult to get a table on weekends so book in advance. Perfect for celebration meals.

the hotel itself, although a little jaded, was quite nice and the room we had was enough for the 1 night. pleaty of towels and tolietries, plenty of tea/coffee etc plus if you ran out the staff were more than happy to restock it. The bed I found comfortable which is unusual for me and I did sleep well plus the breakfast in the morning was good (could have done with a spoonful of hot beans) but there was a good selection of cerials and breakfasts with an excellent pot of coffee to wake you up.
The one draw back we found was while the hotel was pretty good in that aspect,we were attending a wedding and during the buffet they ran out of food and then plates.Some guests ended up eating whatever was left of the buffet from tea plates, again when the desserts were brought out they ran out of tea plates so they had the profiteroles and chocolate fondants from serviettes. What I fail to understand is they knew how many guests there were so they should have had that number plus a couple more plates of both sizes available. The buffet itself was nothing to shout about but the desserts were good however I have seen the same desserts in several places so they are not "home made" they are all out of a box. Apart from a few boiled new potatoes everything else came from boxes or packets and just had to be plated for serving. Hence the 2 halves to this place.
The area surrounding the hotel is a park and there is a duck pond with a variety of wildlife on it and surrounding it. In the evening I noticed a badger wandering through, heard a fox trying his luck and saw a fair sized rat running across the path and through the shrubbery. There was also a wasps nest around the side of the building but it didn't cause much of a problem. About 6:30am there was a fairly large heron on the pond looking for his breakfast plus a good selection of smaller birds to keep you interested. I'm normally awake quite early and when in a different place I like to view it without the disturbances you get from other people as there is always more to see.

Room Tip: room 2 was relatively quiet although it did look out over the back yard and wedding marquee so there...

We stated 3rd Aug in room 20 and had the deal.. £80 got dinner, bed And breakfast. Such value for money, very polite and helpful staff, the room was nice and the meal was outstanding! The chef should be applauded for the gorgeous good that he served us! Such a relaxing break for a working mum and dad of three! Will definitely be back! Thank you bryngarwg house :-)

We stayed last night on a 'Mid Week Offer', which included Dinner, Bed & Breakfast. What an excellent offer ! The room was lovely, very clean and comfortable, bathroom well stocked with toiletries, hair dryer and lovely fluffy towels. Dinner was excellent, so much choice, it was hard to decide, with tasters and apertisers offered. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. Unfortunately, it was raining otherwise a walk around the gardens on a summers evening would have been lovely. Breakfast was a selection of full english, cereals,Croissants, fruit or yoghurt from the buffet table.
With a walk down to the duck pond after breakfast...all in all a wonderful evening!
Will be looking out for these offers in the future!

Excellent hotel and value , would definitely book again , food was excellent in the conservatory on a lovely evening and drinks outside on a warm night very peaceful with the ducks quacking, there was a wedding going on but couldn't hear them , stayed in the executive room in the annex very hot with no air con but that wouldn't put me off staying again as it was a hot July this year. Can't wait to stay again
