We booked a two night break at the Chateau Rhianfa after seeing such good reviews on Trip Advisor. Without a doubt the hotel has a real wow factor as soon as you walk through the door but from there it goes downhill. Having said that our room which was a delux was very nice although had no views. Being a bit of a foodie I was very much looking forward to the "dining experience" thinking it would be something very different and not what you would cook at home. Sadly no, although very pretentious. On our first night we basically had a bacon chop as the main course, yes it had been tarted up but bacon is bacon. On the second night the main course was belly pork, not what I would call fine dining. By trying to make the experience last all night there was an inordinate wait between courses, not acceptable. The one saving grace during our stay was the staff, although very young they were both friendly and helpful. In my opinion this hotel is certainly not deserving of its 5 star status based on the 4 star establishments I stay in on a regular basis.
