Picturesque Romantic Country Escape
"The service was excellent and every staff member we came across were helpful and friendly. We stayed in one of the lodge rooms in a separate building to the main hotel. Our room was spacious, comfortable and spotless. The owner let us look around some of the other rooms before we left and they were also lovely and large with stunning views. The food was excellent. The canapes we had to start were a nice touch. All of the courses were well presented and cooked perfectly. If the hotel were closer to home we'd definitely come back for the food. Breakfast was nice, there was a good cold selection and a good selection of juices. The sheet of paper on the table about the day's weather and what to do nearby was a nice touch. There's plenty to do at this hotel. We spent a lot of time at the spa which wasn't busy at all so was nice and relaxing. They also have a billiards room you can use and lots of space to walk around the lake and grounds. As a dog lover, I also like how dogs are welcomed. We would return and recommend."
A Perfect Rural Retreat
"We come every year in January because we like the warm welcome we receive. We especially appreciate the fact that dogs are also warmly welcome. We adore the beautiful rooms, fabulous gardens and surrounding landscape. It is very peaceful here, so lots of opportunities for relaxation. The food was especially good this year, enormous thanks to Josh Donachie and his team. It is not often you get a Masterchef to cook for you. Especially liked the lamb and sea bass. Not to mention the celeriac soup which was Devine."
Friendliness of Staff Topped Off the Perfect Mini Break
"3-night stay at this wonderful hotel. Our 3rd visit and just as relaxing/rewarding. Superb suite and dining experience. Great spa facilities even had a few frames of snooker coupled with warm friendly staff and all in such a beautiful setting. We were almost pleased the weather was so bad as it was an excuse to stay in the hotel and just soak it all in… perfect."
"Had a fantastic stay at the hotel for my birthday. The staff are so friendly and helpful and I even had a complimentary chocolate brownie treat after my evening meal saying happy birthday on it. If you're looking for a peaceful and relaxing night away then I highly recommend."
A Lovely Atmosphere Throughout
"We had a lovely "Dinner Bed & Breakfast" stay. We were immediately upgraded to a suite which was beautiful. Hotel is in a lovely setting and the staff were all very friendly. We had a nice lunch before having a swim in the pool. The Spa/pool is a short walk down a drive slightly away from the hotel overlooking the lake. The evening meal was a very nice experience with scrumptious 'tasters' offered to accompany our pre-dinner drink. The meal itself was superb and service excellent. The hotel has a lovely atmosphere throughout with log fires and log burners adding to our comfort on this very chilly day"
"The service from the staff was second to none and everyone was so friendly and made us feel extremely welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. The lodge was very clean and well equipped with an en-suite bathroom which had a bath and a shower. We thoroughly enjoyed the 4 course evening meal and the food was outstanding as was the service. We used the spa facilities which were also excellent - the hot tub overlooking the lake is a lovely feature."
New Year Holiday
"Lovely country hotel situated in the Brecon Beacons in wonderful countryside. The hotel is very cosy with good rooms and sitting areas. Our suite of rooms in the front of the hotel looked out across the lawns to the open countryside. Excellent celebration on New Year's eve, starting with champagne and canapés, followed by excellent dinner. Evening continued with dancing to live music and at midnight everyone gathered outside to watch an excellent firework display. New Year day spent walking around the grounds before taking in the spa to enjoy a leisurely swim. Again dinner in the evening was excellent. Altogether, a very nice 3 days of spoiling and relaxation."
Love, Love, Love this Hotel
"Our 2nd New Year break at this lovely Hotel. From the minute we arrived, we were greeted by cheery, welcoming staff. We stayed in the Lodge - a lovely spacious suite with beautiful views over the gardens. We had excellent food. We did notice a difference between this stay and last but that is not to say that the fare was not as good - it was. We learned afterwards that there is a new chef who had only been there a couple of weeks. What an amazing job he did, considering the hotel was full and on New Years Eve and everyone was eating at the same time (huge house party). Congratulations to the Owner (who was also waiting on tables) and all of the staff, who go the extra mile to ensure that your visit is the best it can be. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone."
