Reviewed 4 June 2012

Spent a week at this amazing Country House with fellow travellers on a Coopersmith's Castle and Garden Tour of S.W.Wales.
Martin completely won our hearts with his attentiveness, and wonderful humour. He even made us popcorn while we watched movies in his "flicks in the sticks"- a great home movie theatre.

The staff was very friendly and the meals first class--and beautifully presented.

So peaceful to be in the lovely Welsh countryside.

We were celebrating my best friends 30th birthday and what a choice of accommodation.
From the moment we arrived and were greeted at the car by Martin he made us feel at home, we were given a tour of the mansion and it is simply beautiful !
We stayed in the Sienna Miller suite and our friends the Keira Knightly suite which were both out of this world.
Tasty home made biscuits awaited us in our room don't eat them before dinner though as in no way should you spoil your appetite as the food is exquisite I have dined at the burg al Arab in Dubai in their underwater restaurant but the dinner at Ty Mawr is better ! Fresh locally produced ingredients that simply melt in the mouth as well as a stunning gin and tonic sorbet to the cleanse the pallette WOW !
The service from Martin and Kath was exceptional with every last detail thought of including taking umbrellas out if raining so you don't get wet ! They are truly a unique couple who make their guests feel like they are staying in their home and want you to treat it as such
Thank you Martin and Kath and your beautiful daughter carys for making our friends birthday a memory of a lifetime we will be back very soon

The Hotel is a lovely building and is well appointed, and the room was nice and the bed comfortable. My wife brought me here to celebrate my 50th birthday and to have relaxing, peaceful and romantic getaway, which is pretty much what the hotel offers on its website.

We weren't overly impressed with the Keira Knightly shrine in the lobby, was a little offputting to erect such a tribute to someone who once stayed there, I wonder what she feels about it!

The unfortunate thing was at breakfast we were unhappy to find a young baby at a table with her family, this in itself wasn't so bad, what was appauling was that the parents switched on a toy that played nursery rhymes loudly for the entire duration of the breakfast, the staff did nothing about this, which totally spoilt for us the breakfast and the stay, we could have had this kind of thing at a local travel lodge and paid considerably less.

The food in my opinion was good but tried to be too clever, and some people might find it difficult to find a dish that suits them.

The younger members of staff were very good and courteous, but unfortunately some of the older female members of staff were less than friendly, which to me is unacceptable in this price range.

We won't be coming back, and would recommend the Falcondale as a better alternative.

The website for Ty Mawr highlights its celebrity guests. To be honest, this slightly put me off. I have had bad experiences with hotels that have pretensions. However, I could not have been more wrong: this place makes everyone feel special. The rooms are large, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Breakfasts were superb - and generous. Evening menus offered a range of largely local produce, imaginatively cooked and well presented. Little touches like good wines by the glass at sensible prices and the overall cost will appeal to us salary slaves. The standard of service was very high from both the owners and staff - professional and friendly. We felt very well cared for. I could wax lyrical about the fantastic location, peace and quiet. However, my suggestion is that you check the website for yourselves. We shall be going back.

Room Tip: As we plan to go back, we looked at other rooms. I can say we woudl happily take any.

I have to say the gesture of Martin meeting you at your car and helping with the luggage is indicative of the welcome you will receive at Ty Mawr Mansion. They make sure you have a pleasant break and not, like so many hotels, just out to take you money. Clean, great food and a great atmosphere. We took our 4 year old son and he was very welcome. The cinema is great too. I would recommend it especially as a place to feel comfortable with a little one. Our son could play in the grounds and feed the chickens! They even offered to watch our son in the room next to the restaurant if we felt he was being too loud. Not many places offer that! At Ty Mawr it is all about you having a fabulous time!

Our hosts Martin & his wife were welcoming & unpretentious. The hotel was home for a weekend & particularly room 4 was a haven where we could relax.
Romantic setting, entertaining animals..especially the chickens running into their house..!!
The rooms were delightfully quiet with no intruding sounds form other guests, just blissful time with ourselves... a very ,very special weekend thank you Ty Mawr....

Imaginative food, first class breakfast & gorgeous taste .....

Room Tip: Room 4 spacious & romantic

We arrived at Ty Mawr Mansions on the 24th April 2012 for a two night stay. Martin, the Manager,met us at the car with an umbrella and helped us in with our luggage. We had booked the suite downstairs which was very luxurios and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant that evening and the food was first class as was the breakfast in the morning.Everybody was so friendly and polite and Martin was helpful. We will certainly tell our friends and family about the hotel and certainly hope to stay again one day.
