What a lovely hotel this is! 9 of us stayed here for two nights, (ages ranged from 56 - 90!) and we couldn't have been better looked after. The rooms were lovely and warm (windows opened if it was too hot, radiator worked well if it was too cold) and exceptionally clean.
The restaurant decor set the tone for an elegant dinner, with choices from the A La Carte or Bar Menus plus a Specials Board. Food was served hot, beautifully presented and obviously cooked to order but a chef who actually cares about food and takes pride in their work. Wines were very reasonably priced and complimented the dinner perfectly.
Breakfast was also cooked to order (try the scrambled eggs - delicious!) and again served on hot plates - a real test of quality which not many hotels manage to achieve these days.
Whilst the ladies visited Abbergavenny and Crickhowell to shop, the gents dabbled on the golf course and followed some of the recommended walks across the local hills. Perfect!
Personally, I can't wait to return in the Spring for another mini break. This hotel is excellent value for money, set in a wonderful location as long as you're not looking for a city break or loud music!
