“Yet again, great service, great food, great venue!!!”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

This is the fourth time we have used Caer Llan for company business. Yet again, nothing is too much for Jake and Vicky. The service is top class and the food is so fresh and just so tasty.
Jake and Vicky are constantly adding to the venue and I would recommend Caer Llan to any business or even a family or friends what a great venue for a party or wedding.
We will be back soon, anyone considering such a venue, I highly recommend a visit to discuss your requirements as nothing is too much for Jake and Vicky!

Room Tip: There are so many different types, but room 1 has a great bathroom with superb views

From start to finish planning our wedding at Caer Llan I couldnt find a fault if I tried! We had 70 guests and all of them commented on how amazing the venue was.
We decided to do a weekend away and in our search came accross Caer Llan, we knew straight away it was the perfect place for us. The views are stunning, the rooms are comfortable, bathrooms/wet rooms are great, and the space for the wedding party was exactly what we wanted, a good mix of bar, dance floor and comfy sofas.
The food was outstanding, every meal was generous and tasted delicious, especially the Hog Roast, Jake cooked it to perfection. We had Lamb for our Wedding breakfast, I wish I could cook Lamb that well!!
Jake and Vicki have been so helpful, always able offer honest advice, which we needed as we don't live near by. They worked so hard to make our weekend stress free. The team that works there has a really friendly approach...it felt very relaxed.
The location is wonderful, some beautiful views, great for photos, of which we have loads!!
All in all we have some fantastic memories at Caer Llan, we wouldn't have changed a thing - Thank you!

Annually, 50 friends take over Caer Llan for a weekend of catching up...and it's just the perfect venue. Rooms are very comfortable, bathrooms are new and very well appointed and while we amble around the wonderful relaxed grounds or hang out at the bar, dinner is being prepared in the kitchens and sitting down to eat is a pleasure. Jake and family - staff count as family! - seem to tune in to guests requirements - are attentive - and forever trying hard to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable.

There's lots to do locally if you want to jump into the car - or you can leave keys in your room and go wander......gardens.....local walks....or only as far as the terrace with a GnT to enjoy spectacular views.

Breakfast is a highlight - on this occasion a full Welsh sensation - all the trimmings and more - and if I have to appoint a number 1 fave I'd have to nominate locally made fat sausages - herby and meaty - fantastic. Well done Jake and all At Caer Llan - see yo unext year.

We have just spent our 9th year at Caer Llan - a long weekend with around 40 friends. Every year we enjoy it more. The location and views are fantastic, and the facilities are constantly improved. Jake and Vicki make us all feel very welcome, and work really hard to ensure their guests have a great time. The food is excellent, and there is loads to do in the area. Our children who are now in their teens and early 20s love it, and look forward to our stay their enormously. Thank you Jake and Vicki.

This is a great place to stay if you are travelling in a large group for a social, wedding or any other event. The location is superb and the vista is breathtaking, with views across the valley to the Black Mountains. The owners and staff are really hospitable and will try their hardest to accomodate your needs. Rooms are nice and bathrooms very modern. We just stayed as part of a social group of around fifty people with our family of four and were there for three nights on a full board basis. The food was superb and freshly prepared and the bar is well stocked ! It is a great place, warm atmosphere with so many things to do in the local area, i can't reccomend it enough

This is easily the best hospitality I have ever experienced within a 'group' field trip environment and a personal holiday as well. I was made to feel very welcome and everything I was provided with went far beyond my expectations: great food, great evening atmosphere, and most of all fantastic views to wake up to every day! Would love to be able to return one day.
