My husband and I booked for two nights in room 8 the Duchess Suite. Whilst the hotel location and our room view was amazing sadly quite a lot let it down. On the positives...besides the view and location was the staff who always appeared to have time to chat and help in any way. Rhianfa itself has been renovated to a good standard but after being used to 5 star hotels Rhianfa lacked tremendously in lots of ways. For example on arrival we were offered coffee/tea in one of the lovely lounges but disappointingly the glass top table had many crumbs left from previous guests and water rings from wine/water glasses. Any chrome/stainless steel in the bar/reception rooms needed shining and the cream carpet from reception up the stairs and along the many landings was beyond stained. I had to call reception to clean our bathroom floor as there were hair clips laying on the tiled floor presumably left from previous guests which indicated the floor had not been cleaned prior to our check in. The room amenities were very limited certainly compared to luxury hotel standards. The food was good but limited choice. The main breakfast hall had the dirtiest floor I have seen in any hotel for many yrs. The dining room had a pipe low down on the wall running around the floor area and whilst that was very discreet the crumbs/paper/etc that was beneath had not been swept up for a long long time and was quite off putting. Overall we were glad we had only booked for two nights and would only return if changes to cleanliness/hygiene were greatly improved. We paid top price for our stay and really expected more.
