“What a Charmer”
Reviewed 6 May 2011

My wife and I stayed at Pen-y-Dyffryn for five days in late April/early May. Our room (the Garden Room) was large, clean, comfortable, bright, and blissfully quiet. The view out our window was gorgeous. The bathroom, with tub and shower, was clean and spacious.

The hotel staff could not have been more accommodating. They were attentive, friendly, and always nice to be with.

A hearty breakfast (included) fueled us up for full days driving around Shropshire and Wales. The dinner menu was different every night, and the food was to die for.

In short, it was for us an idyllic place to stay while enjoying the beauties of the region.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We extended it by a night too - first staying in coach-house 1 and then The Terrace Room. Both rooms were clean, well furnished, had a full compliment of facilities and both could accomodate our dog. The view and location is stunning and we did morning walks whilst we were there that took in the full beauty of the english and welsh countryside. The staff were very friendly and professional and there was an air of professional elegance about the place - whilst still being relaxed and friendly. The food was superb and we felt the price fully reflected the standard of the accommodation, food and service and was of great value for money. We cannot wait to return!!

We had coach house room 1. It was well presented and our patio area was glorious. The view was stunning and the sun trap meant we sat out until early evening in T shirts, even though it was mid April. Next time we go we will take our dog as the local walks were varied and interesting. All the staff we met were friendly and very helpful. There is so much to see locally, but you could easily spend a day quietly at the hotel soaking up the views.

Memory plays tricks, but I think that this was our fifth visit to this hotel and once again it did not disappoint. As ever, the staff were cheerful and welcoming, the quality of the food splendid, and the room in the coach house comfortable with beautiful views. Although it is a little pricey (especially drinks) we feel that it is worth returning to because we always find it such a relaxing place to stay, and in such stunning countryside. The choice of walks from the hotel is a major attraction.
This time we also took advantage of an offer to stay a night at their other hotel - the Castle in Bishopscastle - still a "work in progress" and a pub with rooms rather than a country hotel, but nonetheless comfortable and with good food. We will certainly return to both.

We have visited this hotel on a number of occasions and are never disappointed.
The experience always starts with a friendly welcome from one of the young managers, what an asset they are to the business.
Yet again we could relax and enjoy the wonderful views, great food, and exemplary service.
Whatever the season there is something to enjoy.

We had a very relaxing stay, welcomed with tea and scones, we found our room had been upgraded. It was a very spacious comfortable room, with attention to detail and a view of the attractive gardens. carpeted with snowdrops.
Dinner was excellent, with an imaginative menu, well cooked food and attentive staff.
