Ty Mawr Mansion
Ranked #1 of 1 Cilcennin B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 October 2007

I found the Ty Mawr Mansion through a glowing review in the Guardian and booked 2 nights there because of the review. We were not disappointed - in fact it is now our favourite place to stay in the UK.

Ty Mawr is a beautiful house set in nice grounds in the beautiful welsh countryside. The interior is just as nice - beautifully decorated and nice and airy. Our room was great - big with great views across the grounds and countryside. The best bit was our bathroom which had a rain shower and a separate bath (on feet) from which you could look out onto trees and hills.

As other people have said the food is fantastic. Really great and I had one of the best puddings I have ever tasted (in my top 2 of all time). Breakfast was also great - especially the bacon and sausage from their own pigs. If I was forced to say anything bad I would say the juice could be better but that was not a big deal.

On a final note I must say how friendly and welcoming the owners Martin and Catherine are. We could not have felt more welcome. We even got a full tour of the whole hotel and grounds. I felt so at home I occasionally forgot that I was at a hotel (oops).

We can't wait to go back!

I stumbled across the hotel from a listing on late rooms and then came to Trip Advisor to read the reviews - only to find that there weren't any (so I'm trying to remedy that now that I'm back home).

The owners, Martin and Alison, were very welcoming and attentive. I particularly appreciated Martin coming to the car to meet us and carry our bags to the room.

The room was a large size and the bathroom was great with whirlpool bath and huge shower head - but surprisingly a tiny corner sink.

Dinner was excellent - an interesting menu, an informal atmosphere, food cooked to perfection.

However, for the price I would expect a few extras: there weren't any bathrobes or slippers in the bedroom; no olives or nuts were served with the pre-dinner drinks; the cooked breakfast was fantastic but the juices were cheap and there wasn't any yoghurt; and a 10.30 checkout does seem particularly early.

If you do stay I'd recommend a trip to New Quay - a beautiful seaside location a short drive from the hotel. You can go on a dolphin-spotting boat trip, go for a walk on the beach, or paddle in the sea.

We have just returned from 3 fantastic nights at Ty Mawr Mansion and wanted to let people know what a great place it is!!

We were greeted by the owner and show to our room, all I can say is WOW! The room had a fantastic bed, Widescreen TV, Sky, DVD, Internet in a great seating area with 2 sofas and a fantastic bathroom with great jacuzzi bath and rain shower!!

We would have been happy not to leave our room for 3 days but the surrounding area has loads of great places to visit, although we did come back for an afternoon nap each day cos it seemed a waste to only use the room at night!

Onto the food...

The food and atmosphere here is as good or better than any restaurants we have been to including top restaurants in USA and Michelin Restaurants in UK. Each course is full of flavour and perfectly presented by friendly and attentive staff, including the owners.
Breakfast is fantastic, using local ingredients including their own pigs!!

I could go on and on but would rather you went and saw for yourself. If you need a relaxing break then this is the place for you!!

Arrived in a terrible storm on July 20 to receive a very warm welcome from Martin. We had a superb suite. Home made biscuits were provided . Bedroom was huge with large screen TV and luxurious bathroom. We stayed 2 nights and ate in on both occasions. Cooking superb from a varied and imaginative menu. Wide choice of reasonably priced wines.Excellent breakfasts using local ingredients and the best toast we have ever eaten.Service was attentive throughout. Impossible to find fault in any way. We would certainly go back.
