Great location in Newport, ample parking and spacious rooms that are very comfortable. The staff are a credit to the hotel, friendly and welcoming. Fabulous breakfast. A short walk and then you are in the centre of Newport.
We have stayed in many hotels around the world, but this one takes artisan care and local sourcing to the next level. The dinner was beautifully cooked and presented. The theatre of cocktail creation and end result was fantastic. Well done to the team
We visited for a birthday dinner and ate in the gorgeous new secret garden pods. We had our 2 dogs with us who were made most welcome! The secret garden set up is really beautiful, quirky and romantic. We loved the fire pit and made use of the pod heater. The food was the real highlight though! Amazing standard. We shared the croquettes to start which came with delicious pickles. For mains, we both had the lamb which was beautifully cooked and accompanied by hispi cabbage and roasted carrots. Both incredible! The cocktails were delicious and unusual and the wine list good and well priced. The staff were all attentive and charming! Already planning another visit. Worth the 3 hour drive just for this restaurant!
Absurdly good food, comfortable room and friendly, attentive staff. A winning combination. We stayed for one night but it certainly won’t be our last and has already been recommended to family. Our Labrador, May, was welcomed in to the hotel and bar which only added to the experience for us.
Room gorgeous. Food delicious. Secret garden was delightful. Visited with our dog who particularly loved the secret garden and surrounding village and nearby beach. Nice touch was having fresh milk in the room.
We were really looking forward to a touch of luxury to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, We were so hugely disappointed - luxury price but certainly not a luxury experience. We were in room 5. The carpet on the stairs is not at all welcoming - so badly stained. The design of our room was certainly not luxury, other than the bed linen. The bath had no plug which I reported to reception- who could not help. My husband eventually found the plug underneath the roll top bath- so whoever prepared the room did not do a thorough job. The surface of the bath also left something to be desired. The most disappointing experience was the dining room. It needs a thorough clean, especially the seating . Breakfast was very poor . Young staff with no evidence of superiors . The quality of the food was not what we expected from the reviews we had read. Poor quality orange and apple juice. No honey. I had smoked salmon with very runny scrambled eggs on the first morning. My husband opted for the vegetarian breakfast- the glamorgan sausage was not cooked thoroughly. We had booked an evening table to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary - big mistake - for me part of the special experience is to have a calm. relaxing, inviting dining room- not families dressed in shorts and flip flops dashing back and fore noisily to the secret garden . I would suggest that the dining room should not be used as a throughfare. My husband unfortunately was not at all well and just wanted a light supper. He had the mackerel starter which was served with a poor quality olive oil. I had the lobster - which had thank goodness been located about 30 minutes after we sat down. There was no salt nor pepper on the table. I asked for a finger bowl - I am sure the young waitress had to go and ask what that was. The irons for the lobster were not good enough. The biggest shock was to see that the hotel only has a 3 Food Hygiene rating. If we had known this before we booked we certainly would have decided against staying at this hotel…
The "secret garden" is out of this world -- eating amazing food in your own pod in the garden. Innovative garden, great staff -- enthusiastic and knowledgeable, delicious food, just a fabulous concept. Room was great, bed very comfortable. Artwork added to the experience.
We'd always wanted to stay here; my wife's family is local and we know the area well. The hotel is a beautiful old house in the middle of this popular seaside town The recption staff were lovely. Our room was admirably clean, had posh bed-linen and good "amenities". It wasn't until night-time that we discovered that the bed- side lights were so low powered, we couldn't read in bed. The bathroom was poor. A bath/shower with no non-slip map and no hand grips just won't do and is dangerous; the modern lighting was useless for anyone who shaves, puts on make-up or inserts/ takes out contact lenses. The hotel used to be well-known for its food. The two evening meals we had were excellent BUT the service was egregiously slow and the subject of conversation amongst fellow diners. On both evenings, the service was so slow that we we'd got no patience for a third course not least because sitting waiting while muzak dominated. I timed our second night's meal and we finished our main course two hours and twenty minutes after placing our orders. A symbol of the lack of supervision was that the small vase of wilting flowers that decked our table on our first night was still there at breakfast on our second morning, heads hanging and leafless. And muzak at breakfast time was awful. Maybe we should have stayed in better days.…
Utterly divine food for our group of 14 last night, interesting cocktails, scrummy wines and beers and the most amazing roast leek starter. A special thank you to Amber who went out of her way to accommodate the children with their own order pad and pen! Put simply it's the best place to eat and drink in Pembrokeshire. Thank you all for being consistently brilliant. ❤️
They saved our holiday! We booked another hotel but when we arrived during the night it was closed. We asked help to the Lliys Meddyg staff and they offer us a beautiful room with a very good rate. The hotel is really nice, with a deliciuos home made breakfast. Hotel and breakfast staff absolutely lovely. Thanks for this experience
