“What can we add?!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2012

Ty Mawr Mansion is a perfect blend of luxury, comfort and homely charm, all set in idyllic surroundings. Martin, the owner is the perfect host and is rightly proud of his exquisite hotel. We stayed in the Keira Knightley Suite and can easily describe it as one of the very best rooms we have ever stayed in, simply stunning sums it up. We were unfortunately on a whistle stop trip and were unable to sample the delights of the restaurant but if the breakfast is anything to go by the food must be exceptional. We are already planning a longer return visit in the near future in order to take full advantage of the hotel's wonderful facilities.

Room Tip: I suspect all the rooms are tastefully decorated, well equipped and extremely comfortable but the Ke...

Thank you mart146 for taking the time to add a review. It was indeed a whistle stop trip for you, but at least you got a taster of Ty Mawr Mansion and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future for a longer stay.

We recently celebrated our wedding anniversary at ty mawr . Martin made us feel very welcome nothing was too much trouble . The food in the restaurant is truly excellent and just cannot be compared with chain restaurant meals and pub grub. The service was fantastic . A hidden gem. What more can I say? Other than we will be going back soon ....

Thank you Keiran01 for your review, I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do try to offer a very personal service here at Ty Mawr and our team try to go that extra mile to ensure that all your needs are catered for.
The restaurant while small has a big heart and under the watchful eye of our head chef all dishes are prepared from local seasonal ingredients in our kitchens to showcase the best of Ceredigion.
We all look forward to welcoming you again to Ty Mawr Mansion and thank you for your comments.

I wanted to take my wife away for 1 night of luxury following a medical result. I chose this hotel as it had a direct line number, and I could by-pass the usual irritating booking sites.
We were so pleased with our stay! Arrived in the pouring rain to a most beautiful part of Wales, and we were greeted by the owner, who showed us our room. It was large, en suite, with separate sitting room. Oh what bliss!
Dinner was superb, in all respects. As good as you can get! Cardigan Bay scallops particularly delicious, as was the pork dish (3 types of cut- lovely!). The area is great for food, and the chef knows how to prepare, cook and present it properly.
Breakfast lovely, also!
We really would love to return, and we recommend this hotel to others,

Room Tip: I am sure this is not needed. We had room 1, and it was lovely. Bathroom facilities as website says...

Thank you Graham P for your lovely review, I am glad that you chose Ty Mawr Mansion as your venue for some well deserved relaxation. Although I am sorry that we could not do something with the weather for you. I am glad that we lived up to your expectations and that you enjoyed the local produce showcased by our team of chefs.
The chef has a very strong local ethic, but also like to showcase his skills by using modern techniques and the pork dish is a great dish that combines three very unique elements of the pig together.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Ty Mawr Mansion in the future.

Stayed here for 2 nights and wish that we could have stayed for longer. As we approached the Ty Mawr Mansion we were greeted by Martin, the owner who made us feel very welcome and helped us with our bags. We were given a complimentary upgrade to the "Keira Knightley" Suite which is simply stunning; the room is beautifully decorated and spacious with THE most comfortable bed, a huge bathroom with jacuzzi bath, fluffy towels and robes. Homemade biscuits and a plentiful supply of refreshments were in the room along with cd, tv and computer.
Breakfast was quite simply, fabulous! We ate here in the evening which was also excellent (see separate review). I would recommend this hotel for a romantic and/or relaxing break. I will definitely revisit.

Here at Ty Mawr Mansion we try to offer the things that are most important to guests and the one thing that comes above everything else is a good nights sleep, which is why we have and continue to, invest in the best quality beds we can find, to hope that this would give our guests the relaxation they deserve. A good breakfast to set you up for the day is also important and so we strive to offer the best locally sourced and produced ingredients to use in our kitchen.
I look forward to welcoming you back again soon and if you look out for our special offers maybe it could be a longer stay next time.

As my girlfriend and I arrived we were greeted at the door my the owner and immediately offered drinks and shown to some seats in the lounge. We were given a quick tour which was lovely and had a good chat with the owner. The food was fantastic. Well presented and tasted even better. Was very pleased to hear that almost everything on the menu is of local produce and hand-prepared by the chef. At this point I should say how the steak was the best I've had yet. The passion fruit sorbet was like a fruit explosion. The service offered by our waitress was great. For a three course meal with a round of drinks came to just over £60. What a bargin, considering the quality of everything. Cant believe I havent come here before now. Hope this review helps, cheers!

Thank you Glyn J on your review, I am pleased that you enjoyed your experience whilst dining here at Ty Mawr Mansion, our chef does indeed have a very strong local ethic and being a local man himself is very aware of some amazing suppliers right on our doorstep. As everything we serve from the bread right through to the sorbets is made here in our own kitchens we hope that our guests can see the commitment that we have to our guests.
I look forward to welcoming you again to Ty Mawr Mansion in the future and thank you once again for an amazing review.

We stayed for two nights D&B&B and could not fault it. Super food, excellent bedrooms with massive bathrooms and a jacuzzi. Sublime! Martin and his team provide the personal touch which is so important to an enjoyable stay. It is so good we shall be visiting again which says it all. JohnC.

This is the second time my wife and I have stay in the Ty Mawr Mansion. The standard of service, quality of the rooms and the food was excellent. Being greeted by Martin on arrival added an extra special touch to the whole experience. We would highly recommend Ty Mawr Mansion.
