“peaceful beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2005

We stayed over a weekend in the Renoir room. The room was very pleasant and uniquely decorated. The grounds and surrounding bird wildlife sanctuary were lovely and completely peaceful. The hotel is run by its owners who were always present and the service was careful, attentive and absolutely excellent. The food was outstanding. This is an example of a great small hotel in the UK, actually something very rare.

Stayed September 2005

We came here on the spur of the moment, and were bowled over by the glorious location. Lovely views from our windows to mountains, and hotel is set in delightful grounds close to a nature reserve. Hotel is extremely comfortable with unique decor complemented by the artist owners' paintings - each bedroom is named after an artist, all with striking colouring and decor. Clearly a favourite haunt of the smart money, the owners are discrete, friendly and helpful. And the food - amazing! Dinner ran into several spectacular courses, with a 'tasting menu' and wines to match. Not sure I've ever had a Michelin starred breakfast before, but this was a poached egg and smoked haddock to die for.....!

Only 2 niggles - no fridge or kettle in the room, so even getting an early morning cup of tea without fussing with dressing gowns and knocks at the door was not an option. Also, the general wine list was pretty expensive, although the house wines were reasonable and well chosen.

We will definately go again, once the bank account has recovered from the last hit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Ynyshir is a five star restaurant with rooms near the Snowdonia National Park, Aberystwyth and Machynlleth. The Michelin Star restaurant at Ynyshir is one of Wales' best contemporary fine dining destinations and holds four AA rosettes - one of only two restaurants in Wales to hold this distinction. Michelin Star chef Gareth Ward serves alternative British tasting menus using the very best of Welsh and British produce. The menus showcase the best of Welsh ingredients following the seasons, such as Welsh Wagyu Beef and Anglesey Onions throughout the year, as well as locally foraged sea herbs from the estuary and greens from the woodland floor and Ynyshir's extensive gardens. During hunting season expect to see wild deer and local duck, grouse and partridge, and in summer Welsh Lamb from the Dyfi valley. Gareth and his team pickle, salt, ferment and preserve fruits, leaves and berries carrying the harvests through the winter and into the spring. Expect to see dishes such as 'Not French Onion Soup', 'Mackerel Sweet & Sour' and Gareths take on a Tiramisu all served alongside a carefully selected wine-list whilst overlooking the Cambrian mountains and Ynyshir's extensive gardens Ynyshir has a total of ten luxuriously furnished guest rooms, each with its own unique style and character. There are seven rooms within the main house and three deluxe rooms directly adjacent. Each guest room has an en-suite with a separate bath and shower and feature premium Temple Spa products. Most rooms offer views over the gardens and Cambrian Mountains. ... more   less
