The Lake Country House & Spa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We recently spent two nights staying at the The Lake Country House & Spa on a Guardian Escapes offer which was excellent value. Our suite was clean, comfortable and spacious and the bathroom (clearly recently refitted) was excellent with both bathtub and large separate shower cubicle. The grounds are wonderful and we particularly appreciated the rhododendrons and azaleas which were in full bloom. The spa facilities were immaculately kept and the swimming pool was a good size. Treatment vouchers were included in our package and we both felt better after Drift Away massages.

Dinner started with a drink in the main drawing room which felt more like being guests in a country house than staying in a hotel. The food was excellent and our taster menu (part of the package) included the best lamb I have ever tasted. Service throughout was excellent - attentive without being fussy. We had originally planned to eat elsewhere on our second night but we were so impressed on the first night that we decided to eat in and were not disappointed. Breakfasts, served in the less formal conservatory, were good too.

In the heart of south Wales, this hotel is as peaceful as it gets, the only noise we could hear from the room was the bird song which was complemented by beautiful views over the lake and grounds.
The staff are friendly and professional, restaurant is very good and there is a fully equipped spa. My only regret about booking a stay here was that it should have been longer.
We booked a suite and it was really very good, well decorated and spacious. I'd recommend to anyone.

What a fantastic place to stay, I recently stayed in one of their lodges which was set in the most gorgeous 50 acres of countryside. I took full advantage of the spa and had a wonderful treatment, worth every penny !

We visited the sister hotel, 'Northcote Manor' in Devon earlier this year and was expecting similar exceptional standards.
On arrival staff were helpful and courteous. The room was small and cosy, but well equipped. The bathroom was in need of a bit of TLC, with toilet roll holders falling off and paint fading on the walls and bath.
During the evening meal, we did not feel the service was quite up to what would have been expected at a hotel of this stature. Many of the waiters and waitresses were surly and rude, dropped food and water over the table upon service. Furthermore, contrary to what is stated on the website, many guests turned up to dinner in t-shirts and jeans, which took away the ambiance that should have been created.
However, the grounds, gardens and spa were fantastic! It was exquisitely quiet and relaxing throughout the whole grounds.
It is well worth a visit for the relaxing weekend, however be warned that dinner service is not as would be and should be expected unfortunately.

We would highly recommend this hotel. In tranquil settings you will instantly unwind. Beautiful food, lovely walks in the ground and a fantastic spa (hot tub is a real treat).
Each morning at breakfast you get some day trip recommendations which we followed, a lovely touch and made for a great weekend away.
If you do venture out we loved Elan Valley and had a beautiful meal at the Carlton Riversidr restaurant (about 4 miles from the hotel).

We stayed for 3 days, 2 nights, & were definitely much more relaxed on leaving!
The hotel is in a beautiful & isolated location & is very peaceful.
Our room - large & roomy, with large soft bed & big bathroom with separate bath & shower. We had a lovely view over the lake & the swans with their 8 cygnets. The old Toshiba TV needs updating with something modern which can be moved & watched in both rooms - & pretty please - more mirrors - preferably a full length one somewhere. There was only one in our suite other than the bathroom one, & one of the nice things here is the dress code; all the guests made an effort & looked nice every evening so a long mirror would be very useful.
Beautiful grounds, all very well kept - but please Mr Groundsman don't park your white van in front of the hotel every day & spoil your guests photo's!
There are lovely walks all around the hotel, most unsurprisingly involving hills, & the river & lakes on the grounds are beautiful.
Dining - food presentation was great, with the taste matching the looks of the food on our 2nd night in particular. However, we agree with previous comments that portions are on the small side - especially the cheeseboard we had on our first night! The restaurant staff were great & there is a good wine list, but the descriptions on the list could be improved as the hotel did not have a sommelier during our stay.
Spa - we had a lovely massage treatment, & had the pool & sun loungers completely to ourselves.
Disability access - be aware there are quite steep slopes & no lifts in any of the buildings, although there are ground floor rooms & restaurant/conservatory access; it is a very old building.
Overall, the atmosphere when we stayed was restful & relaxing, & the environment beautiful, & the staff were without exception very good. However, the hotel is starting to look a little tatty around the edges - frayed carpets etc, & will soon need to benefit from investment to justify their full prices. We were there on an offer & were happy with what we paid.
Our stay was exactly what we wanted - so thank you very much.
