"One of the most enjoyable overnight stays I’ve had for quite a while. Dinner was superb, beautifully presented with wonderful flavours. An excellent breakfast, with freshly brewed coffee served in a china cup and saucer, a lovely touch. Bedroom was immaculate."


" We received a lovely welcome when we arrived. The room was gorgeous - very well decorated, lovely bathroom, full size fridge and the Welsh cakes were a nice touch. We had some very nice cocktails, some of which were devised at awr by the very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly bar manager. I can recommend the darwin medal. Breakfast in the restaurant was great. The restaurant decor is lovely. I would thoroughly recommend."
