Characterful hotel in beautiful surroundings

4 out of 5
by from Chester
Posted Aug 25, 2015
Pros: Beds were supremely comfortable. Room spacious and well furnished.
Cons: Energy saving lighting in the room could be brighter for reading, etc. Service at breakfast needs improvement. Got order wrong 2 out of 3 mornings.
Stayed three nights for the Green Man Festival. Hotel has late breakfasts which suited us. Two mile walk to festival site which is very dark for return walk at night! Loads of outdoor activities available on the doorstep of the hotel.

Excellent escape

Devoid of Muzak, badly behaved children blessed with a superb chef and some traditional good manners. What a gem

Traditional Country House in rural setting

5 out of 5
by from London
Posted Nov 18, 2014
Pros: Traditional feel and atmosphere. Lovely grounds and walks around. Nice lounges to relax in.
Cons: Could be given a coat of paint in some places
Ideal for a restful break. Glorious autumnal colours around the house. Log fires in the lounges and dining room. Bedroom comfortable and warm, slightly on the small size, but perfectly adequate. Minimal mobile signal but the WiFi was fine. Excellent breakfast. Friendly staff, but the english of some of them could be better. Highly recommended.

Weekend break

2 out of 5
by from Essex
Posted May 19, 2014
Pros: The area, views and grounds are delightful.
Cons: The general condition of the hotel's fabric is tired and in need of some extensive maintenance to justify the premium room rates.
Location: The area is both beautiful and scenic.
On arrival at the hotel gates there is an expectation of grandeur and a fine luxurious country estate awaiting you. However, upon closer inspection of the main house along with the very basic decor and facilities, the feeling of grandeur is soon displaced by disappoint. The service was overal quite ordinary despite a very welcoming and accommodating receptionist, the barman's distinct lack of charisma and general unwillingness to offer any service was really quite off putting and frankly poor in comparison to that of a generic chain hotel like an Express by Holiday Inn, which usually cost about half of the room rates of this particular establishment.

Good hotel for summer walks or relaxing

Comfortable countryside hotel, suited to more mature couples, not really for families or business travellers. No fitness facilities, but good bar and excellent menu.

A great winter retreat.

5 out of 5
by from UK
Posted Mar 4, 2013
Pros: Staff and overall atmosphere.
Cons: Lack of alternative to formal (read expensive) dining.
Location: Quiet, country, river nearby, wildlife. And with the charming Crickhowell nearby (10 mins by car).
We are a couple aged 60ish. Went looking for quiet, comfort, warmth (it was early March), big fires, countryside, chill out etc etc. And we found it here. What do you get? Remoteness, perched in woods over the RIver Usk. Extensive grounds leading down to the river. A big log fire and wood burning stoves (in public rooms). Warmth (even during bitterly cold days). Great service from friendly staff. We had a 'Cottage Room' away from the main building. This was a superb room. Huge with massive bed and warm as toast. Tons of hot water but the shower was a bit lacking - very weak. But great for having a huge hot bath after a long hill walk. The one thing you need to be aware of is that the only meals available in the evening are a choice of 2 or 3 course meals at £32 or £40 a head plus drinks of course (so budget £100 total for two). Superb cooking and worth the money. But if you are staying longer than a couple of nights (we stayed 4) then eating in the hotel starts to become very expensive. So much so that we only ate in two nights (went to Crickhowell the other two). If only there was a cheaper alternative such as bar food that would be a welcome addition. But, as I said, we'll be back!

Beautiful Country Hotel

5 out of 5
by from Kamloops, BC, Canada
Posted Nov 1, 2009
I travel a lot for work and pleasure and it has to be said this is one of the nicest places I've stayed. I was travelling on a budget and the cheaper rooms are still very impressive. The old world charm of the hotel gives your stay a taste of what it must have been like in yesteryear and the grounds of the hotel are absolutely stunning. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food in the restaurant is excellent. The only drawback for the very fussiest of traveller is the fact that the nearest town is a short drive away which is slight inconvenient if you're partial to a drink. However, the reason for staying at this gorgeous location is really the ambiance of true, classy country living.
