The drive up to the hotel is a long drive with sheep walking freely and this gave a lovely welcome to the hotel. The building, although now a hotel, still has the feel and character of a country house and staff are warm and friendly without being overbearing.
My room was lovely, overlooking a garden with a gentle sound of trickling water coming from the pond outside, and as there are no cars on the road to hear, I was able to sleep with windows open on one of the hottest nights of the year. I never sleep well in most hotels, but this was an absolute joy!
I was warned that the wi fi may not be as good at this end of the hotel but there was no problem at all with internet access.
Room service was from the same menu as the restaurant and this was a wow! Beautiful, 12 hour braised confit lamb shoulder with gorgeous red wine, garlic and rosemary gravy. Well presented, hot, fresh and delivered really quickly. Unbelievably good value for money and I want it again!
Breakfast was in a lovely room with French doors opening up to the beautiful welsh countryside and service was attentive and relaxed. Food,again was perfect.
If I am in this area again I would definitely return. Thanks 'the manor' for making a business stay a pleasant experience rather than a chore.
