We stayed overnight Saturday 26th July and we can only say that we wished it could have been for longer. First of all we were not going to arrive before 5 o,clock and so i telephoned ahead. The lady who answered said it was no problem and gave us instructions to find the room key however the lovely lady on reception stayed until we arrived, which was not much later. We were shown around the facilities and guided to our room which had en suite. We arrived on a really hot day and the room was very cool and had tea/coffee facilities and even a large bottle of drinking water. After eating out at the local pub, which we could highly recommend we had a great night sleep, very quiet.
We were served breakfast the next morning in the court yard cafe and we were greeted with a warm welcome. We can only say that both the staff we met were very welcoming.

4/5/6th july 2014 -What a wonderful weekend and a wonderful venue for the wedding of my daughter .The grounds were beautiful and our rooms in the courtyard was excellent . The staff were so welcoming and friendly ,very warm and nothing was too much trouble for them. This helped all of us relax as a 100 ( about 50 from each side) enjoyed a barbecue friday evening and a busy bar with more friendly and smiling service late into the night on both friday and saturday . The wedding breakfast on saturday was a culinary triumph with wonderful starters and puddings and the most beautiful pork loin which melted in your mouth and surrounded by delicious gratin dauphinoise withlovely fresh veg etc and extra crackling !! (Thanks ) . The salmon was perfect and the veggie dish a real treat so i must especially congratulate Heiko ,the headchef and his team for all their efforts.You will not be disappointed for they are very good and believe me I have dined in many top restaurants worldwide and the quality for a large party such as ours was first class.
To Shirley who was the main contact for the booking,and Jayne and Shelley , to James who led the team on both nights and Dave and colleagues on the bar and all the lovely girls, Gertie ,Jasmine,Beth ,Kate,Kate ,and all the others who made our stay so enjoyable,our many thanks.

The hall is set amid stunning gardens at the heart of an extensive estate, a superb setting. We stayed overnight to attend a Gregynog Festival concert in the Hall's Music Room and were very satisfied with the whole experience. The staff are wonderful and very friendly and our room in the main house was huge and comfortable - the only minor drawback being not ensuite but there are plenty of WC's and shower/bath room along the corridor. The two course dinner was very nice and very good value with an excellent choice of wines available in the dining room - unfortunately the same cannot be said for the performance interval wines! However, a good range of drinks is available in the Cellar Bar post performance. The Hall provides a nice buffet breakfast and although we didn't try it, the Cafe offers a good selection of snacks, meals and drinks throughout the day.
Gregynog Hall is well worth a visit, even just to spend a few hours in the gardens or walking along the wooded paths. For us as Festival-goers a stopover made the whole event just that bit more special and we shall certainly do the same next June.

First of all, do not eat at their restaurant: it is terrible and management should be sacked. There is a pub nearby where the food is good. Apart from the grounds and the lady who works in Reception/Shop there is nothing to admire: this place is not a grand hall.

A do not think that the Managers care about people's feedback.

I'm very sorry Sir that you were disappointed by Gregynog but hope that you can permit me to change a factual error; Gregynog is a historic house conference and events venue, not a halls of residence. Indeed, our website goes some way towards demonstrating this, containing articles on Gregynog's historic importance and film footage of its beautiful art collection and grounds. That aside, I wonder if you are able to be more precise about your complaint so that I can thoroughly investigate as customer satisfaction is very important to us. A recent assessment under the Hospitality Assured scheme awarded high scores and 'premier' status but I a conscious that things can sometimes go awry in any establishment. I have checked the restaurants comment book for the whole of June and can only find very positive feedback;
'Lovely food, lovely staff'. 'Fantastic place, beautiful gardens and wonderful food'. 'A lovely place to stay, delicious food and friendly staff'. We haven't received any complaints from residents or visitors during this period. Would you therefore be so kind to contact us on enquiries@gregynog.org so that we can attempt to put things right please?

The gardens of this stunning little setting are wonderful.
The shop has many lovely things and the afternoon tea was wonderful
Fabulous walks for dogs and they were made very welcome - bowls of water, bones and rawhide chews are available with afternoon tea.
The outside of the house is equally picturesque.
A must for anyone visiting the area

I recently organised a conference at Gregynog. The staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating, and did everything possible to make our stay go smoothly. The rooms (we were in the main house) were large and airy, with great views over the grounds and surrounding area. The food was plentiful and the staff were happy to provide healthy alternatives to the desserts on the menu to our delegates that requested it. Best of all, I could take my dogs with me - there is a kennel available for hire that includes a lockable shelter, a covered outdoor area and an open yard. My two terriers were very happy during their stay, especially during the long walks around the grounds.

Room Tip: Don't be put off by the shared bathrooms, there are plenty to go round and they're clean and...
