Just spent an evening at the hotel with my partner to celebrate my 50th birthday. It took a good few minutes before we were able to find anyone who could check us in on Friday afternoon but it wasn't too bad as there are plenty of interesting art works and furniture to study as well as a massive bouquet of scented pink lilies to admire. The hotel is a genuine country house that has only been used as a hotel for the past twenty years. It is full of character as are the gardens.
We stayed in a room called "Scott" - a so called "superior room" and more expensive that the standard and luxury and I must say I expected something a bit more special. It had a nice view with a tiny balcony but was rather dark,not very big and over stuffed with furniture. The bathroom however seemed new and was very luxurious though the "luxury toiletries" were nothing to get excited -about just one large Gilchrist and Soames shower gel and one shampoo.
The dining room "Llygad yr Haul" (Welsh for In the eye of the sun) is light and airy with a lovely view of the garden. The food was delicious , the only complaint being that the main course was slightly salty, the service immaculate - friendly and attentive without being intrusive. An impressive wine list caters for all tastes and pockets and there are plenty of sofas to relax on in the lounge for your aperitifs and coffee. We had booked dinner for 7:30 and were shown to our table at 8:10pm having had a plateful of mouthwatering canapes while studying the menu. We did not find this a long time to wait for our table but we could hear another couple loudly complaining that they had booked dinner for 7:30 and had expected to be at their table by that time.
Over all a relaxing, quiet break in elegant and romantic surroundings.
