Our second stay at Pen-y-Dyffryn was a Winter mid-week break. The hotel was reasonably quiet and we were pleased to find that our room booking had been automatically upgraded - this along with the complimentary tea and freshly baked scones on arrival set us in an excellent mood for our stay. The rooms are extremely comfortable with nice touches of luxury that include a spa bath. However one really stays at Pen-y-Dyffryn for the wonderful food. Breakfast choice is wide and the food excellent. Dinner, included in our package, was superb: high quality, local ingredients prepared as delicious dishes. The weather wasn't great during our stay so our planned walks were somewhat curtailed but there was always a warm welcome and a warming log fire to sit beside on our return to the hotel. The staff at Pen-y-Dyffryn are unfailingly attentive and friendly - so all in all a great place to stay.
But a word of warning re dogs: the hotel prides itself on being 'dog-friendly' - a good thing in principle and great of course if you are a dog-owner. Just be wary that if you are uncomfortable with dogs that you could find yourself surrounded by other guests' dogs whilst sitting by the fire. Having said that the hotel does have clear rules for dogs that include not being in lounges after 6pm and the hotel owner appreciated and promised to act on our suggestion that one of the two lounges could be designated 'dog-free'.
