Recently spent 2 nights at the chateau on a Travelzoo deal which included breakfast and evening meal on the first night.
Chateau Rhianfa is part of the amazing group. Location is stunning. The garden which is well maintained is set in tiers down to the Menai and full of beautiful magnolia. The character and decor of the hotel and its many public rooms are amazing. We were fortunate to be given a turret suite with beautiful views across the Menai and to Snowdonia. The rooms are large, spacious,clean and have that little extra luxury feel. Other guests were less fortunate and were told a supplement of up to £100 is required for a upgrade to a room with a view.
The staff were all very friendly and attentive to our needs.
As the hotel advertises it is part of the Amazing group and I cannot argue with that statement regarding the building and location.
It is a beautiful hotel just like a Fairy castle however it does have some negatives.
Two single beds had been put together. The mattresses are far to soft and my husband hardly slept as he felt he was in a trough and had severe backache.
The food is dissapointing and does not compliment or compare to the luxury of the hotel.
Breakfast was basic. The same each morning with limited meat and cheese selection for continental breakfast. Cooked breakfast was of a good quality but without variety. Eggs benedict or scrambled egg and smoked salmon may be choices to add to the menu of a hotel of this calibre, or some typical welsh dishes.
Our voucher entitled us to a 3 course meal on the first night but were given a taster menu. My understanding of a taster menu, which I have had quite a few is ment to showcase the ingredients, culinary skills, and artistick impression of the dishes presented. Very dissapointing forget the canapes and petit fors which are not worth having. Portion sizes very very small and definitely would of been very upset to pay the full price per person for food that I could of prepared at home. Ate out the second night.
Car parking at the hotel entrance is limited. There is extra parking further along the road quite some distance away from the entance and down a steep drive which is very poorly maintained.
Having the voucher was value for money but not sure if I would stay again and pay the full price.
