“A lovely summer evening meal!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We met with friends for a relaxing meal to catch up. If you want a quiet,inexpensive meal you cannot go wrong.Sitting outside in pleasant surroundings to enjoy a drink then moving indoors for our meal. The specials board is as cheap as chips but 3 of us choice the rump steak, it was the best piece of rump steak I have tasted in a long time, with crunchy onion rings, chunky chips,mushrooms and tomato,cooked to perfection all served on a board. Mouth is watering just thinking of it. My only disappointment was that I did not leave enough room for dessert! I would certainly return with friends and recommend to anyone. I haven't seen the hotel rooms,but the setting is lovely.

We've just had our daughter's Christening party at St Mary's. We decided to return there following the success of both our son's Christenings 3 and 6 years ago and I must say that the venue and the service has got better and better. We had 88 people in total including many children, todlers and babies. The function room and decking area was perfect, allowing room for children to roam in an enclosed area and space for our entertainer too. The food was gorgeous and staff, especially Alison, great. We had booked to stay the night and were given a high standard spacious family room... 2 double beds and a single... it's not often that hotels truly cater for a family of 5!! Great venue for an event and a gorgeous place to stay the night... all helped by fantastic weather!!

Although I was a lady travelling on my own, to visit family in the area, I was warmly welcomed, and felt at ease as soon as I had checked in. Old world charm oozed ~ oak beams and exposed brick work. My room was very comfortable with a double sleigh bed, and a luxurious bathroom fitted with whirlpool bath and gold plated fittings. The views are over the golf course ~ started feeling tempted to take up the sport, which appears to be very popular there. A comfortable dining room, and watched the sun set while I enjoyed a delicious meal. I slept very well and had a tasty breakfast. Excellent value for money and wouldn't hesitate in staying there again.

Stayed at St Mary's for a friends wedding and had a very nice stay. The reception staff were helpful before we had even arrived as I called the hotel previously about whether or not we could check in before the ceremony and was advised to call back on the day to see if it was possible and we were lucky our room was available at 12.30.

I have to note a lot of other hotels would charge for early check in but not St Mary's. Check in was quick and the lady on reception was very helpful. We stayed in room 2 on the ground floor and very close to reception and facing out onto tthe courtyard. I was expecting some noise from the evening reception but it was hardly noticeable at all.

The bedroom had everything you needed and was spotlessly clean. The decor was in keeping with the age of the building and while not overly modern (not a bad point I prefer character to corporate) it was very charming. There were two beds in the room, one double and one single. Very comfy mattresses and nice pillows too. The ensuite was also spotless with plenty of toilet roll (better to have too much than not enough!) and a beautiful shower over a jacuzzi bath which takes no time at all to fill as the water pressure is great.

The food we ate at the wedding breakfast, evening buffet and breakfast the following morning was all delicious and plentiful and that is from 2 guests who have very good appetites.

Everything was organised very well and was a beautiful venue for a wedding. From a guests point of view we didn't seem to have long to wait before each part of the day and weren't shuffled around from room to room. The prices at the bar were cheaper than we had been expecting too which was yet another plus. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who needs to stay in the area. It's well sign posted and very close to the motorway not that you would know once you arrive and see how peaceful the location is.

Our wedding was on St David's Day 2014 (March !st).

Absolutely fabulous, our day was anything but traditional and ''Roger'' accommodated all of our special ideas, We used the conservatory for the whole function because we needed the room arranged in a way to have everyone in two rows due to some of our guests being elderly and some a little infirm , No Problem to St Mary's staff at all.
We had 13 rooms booked not one complaint or even poor comment, just praise for how good everything had been done.

Room Tip: St Mary's is a listed building and as such has no lift but it does have excellent ground floor a...
