“Such a shame ”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

We had a change of plan and decided to visit hotel. It was short notice so we booked with hotel which was a similar price per room on their site to booking.com around £70. On departure we had a bill for £140 the young girl said it was per person. It was embarrassing and they still have not replied to querie. If you plan on staying here check price 1st. The stay for b&b did not warrant this money !

Stayed June 2014, travelled with friends

We went to the hotel on a weekend break. We had a warm, friendly greeting from the receptionist who showed us around as soon as we arrived. Our room was spacious and clean and well decorated. The bed was very comfortable, and we had bath and shower in our en suite. The hotel is very old in parts and yet it's tastefully decorated and well cared for. The gardens are lovely. They could do with more TLC and time, but to be fair, a team of gardeners would be needed to get the gardens back to past glory. The otters hide and river were added attractions. The 7-course "Taster" meal was very unusual and exciting. The three course meal next day was generous in portion size and delicious. We would recommend this hotel to all our friends.

Room Tip: Go for the room upgrade if offered. The hotel was quiet but probably if a wedding was being held the...

We booked a table for lunch and were very very pleased. Really relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Sat in the conservatory overlooking grounds and river. The menu was varied and 'specials' tempting. Food was excellent, we all ordered different items and all were enjoyed. The staff were attentive and pleasant and we thoroughly enjoyed our first meal here - many more to follow I'm sure and hopefully with better weather so we can explore the gardens.

We have just returned from a lovely night at the Caer Beris Manor Hotel. Everything lived up to expectations of the good reviews that I had read prior to booking.

Really helpful,friendly staff,good food and beautiful gardens to explore. Both rooms booked were comfortable and nicely decorated. There were lovely views of the garden from the conservatory windows while we ate our meals and dogs are made welcome. Our spaniel had a great time too!

A huge and heartfelt thank you to Peter and his wonderful team for making our special day absolutely perfect. My partner and I celebrated our Civil Partnership at Caer Beris on Sunday (25th May 2014) and spent a wonderful 48 hours at this hidden jewel of a hotel in the company of family and close friends.

The staff could not have done more for us and all of the detail that we had meticulously planned with them over the preceding months was followed to the letter thanks to events coordinator, Dafydd, ably assisted by Claire and Bethan.

Despite the pouring rain, nothing could have dampened our mood as we felt that the hotel was a real home from home in the lead up to the big day with wonderful touches such as the sublime afternoon tea with its glorious home made scones and to-die-for vanilla cream that we enjoyed on Saturday.

Sunday was the most magical day with our ceremony held in the Gallery underneath the hotel with the beautiful gardens providing a backdrop so sublime it was breathtaking. Specially created 'Pink Lady' cocktails and photos followed and then we went upstairs into the Irfon Suite for our wedding breakfast.

We cannot praise Madeleine and the whole kitchen team highly enough for the incredible food that we were treated to. It was beyond delicious and again every detail was to our specification including the trio of desserts which we had created with Madeleine in the months leading up to the ceremony. The compliments we received were outstanding and our guests felt that they had been treated to something really special.

The catering team, the events team, the waitresses, cleaners and housekeepers are all unique people dedicated to making your stay as perfect as it can be. They certainly made our day the most incredible day ever and we cannot thank them enough. I would recommend Caer Beris as a 5 star location at which to hold your special event and am looking forward to spending our first anniversary - and hopefully many more - at this truly inspirational hotel. Thank you all.

Room Tip: The Swansea Suite is spectacular with real 'old world charm' and a view of the gardens and r...
