“Beautiful area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

Stayed at Caer Beris on a Groupon offer and therefore very well priced. The grounds are wonderful although we were unable to take advantage of this fact due to mobility problems. To sit in the conservatory for lunch overlooking the river was fantastic. We had the 7 course taster meal on the first night and this could not be faulted. Initially when the first course arrived, my husband thought he would be starving as it was small. However after the fourth course, I was full and on completion of all courses, my husband was as well. Fabulous flavours in all courses and the frozen cappucino was to die for. My breakfasts were wonderful - eggs Florentine and eggs Royale but my husband had full English and it was a little overcooked. The room was large, the bed very comfortable and everywhere very clean. My only complaint was that I was so looking forward to some Welsh lamb for my evening meal on the second night. This was not to be. They did have lamb fillet on the 5 course meal but not on the a la carte and the chef refused to serve the lamb other than if we had 5 courses. Such a shame. I bought some lamb in the butchers (J Williams & Sons) in Llandrindod Wells and took it home and it was wonderful - well priced and the butchers were very amenable. Maybe Caer Beris should go to him.

What a fantastic place. Room was good (room 1 ). Warm and cosy,shower above bath great. Welcome was good showed us around the hotel and offered to carry our bags. Dinner 7 course taster menu was brilliant even though I am vegetarian, wine reasonably priced. Waiters were lovely and really concerned that we were having a good time. Cannot speak highly of this hotel, should be 4 or even 5 star. We go away regularly but this is one of the best, we will certainly return

Caer Beris is set in grounds of 27 acres, surrounded on 3 sides by the R. Irfon, the site is spectacular, it boasts the remains of 12thC Motte and Bailey castle adjacent to car park. The rooms were of good size, clean,warm,and comfortable. the staff were welcoming, and for a country house of some status, the atmosphere was unpretentious.
The food was excellent.
The hotel is dog friendly. Wildlife abounds, there is an otter hide opposite a holt in the grounds

Room Tip: Only experience of one room, from what we could see all ok, those on S side would have best views ov...

Friendly hotel with excellent food and good wine list. Dog friendly which we found wonderful, even though we don't have a dog! We stayed in suite which was fabulous. We intend to return with friends in September to explore the extensive grounds.

Only stayed for 1 night at Caer Beris but I can honestly stay it was lovely. The room was a little outdated in decor but fitting to the properties antique style. Bathroom was modern and everything worked great. Both bathroom and room were immaculate and spacious. The grounds of the manor are beautiful and well worth a long walk around Builth Wells itself. Staff were great, very friendly and helpful. We had the 7 course tasting menu for dinner and it was fantastic. The food was brilliant and the service was prompt with friendly waiting staff. Breakfast was equally lovely. I would definitely recommend this hotel and quite fancy returning.

We have just returned from a two day break at this hotel, which included a 7 course tasting menu on the first night. We booked through Travelzoo and so had a very good deal, but notice that a similar deal is also available directly through the hotel. We can not fault our stay - our room was huge, clean and very comfortable with everything we could need including a large four-poster bed, a great view over the river and a comfy sofa. The bathroom was fitted with a bath and separate shower and was also very clean. We took our two dogs and do not often get such a great room! The staff were very friendly and we were made to feel very welcome, including the dogs. The tasting menu had some tasty and interesting dishes and although quantities were not large, after the 7 courses, we felt satisfied. On our second evening we had the brasserie menu which was 3 courses for £20 - food was good and we though this was very reasonably prices as were the bar prices. The ground were pretty with interesting walks beside the river and also other walks direct from the hotel. All in all a most enjoyable break in beautiful surroundings -we will certainly come again and can thoroughly recommend the Caer Beris Manor
