Our trip was a surprise for my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had our wedding reception at chateau rhianfa back in 2016. It was a magical day and we both fell in love with the building but only managed to return recently. WHAT ON EARTH HAS HAPPENED???? Firstly when we arrived we were told we were not staying in the chateau we were in a building off the gardens. Disappointed but still we thought ok. I requested a room with a bath and was told on the phone weeks earlier the room had a bath. Well when we got to the room after dragging the cases across the gardens to the hostel like building. We found that not only was our room smaller than any hotel room either of us have come across it had no bath or shower or toilet??? There was a shower and toilet. Next to someone else’s room?? To add insult to injury we were told that the key to lock it was missing and we’re advised to put a towel on the floor to make sure no one walks in. Ok now we felt like things were starting to fall apart. We went to reception to complain and talk to the manager but unfortunately he wasn’t able to come see us. To be fair to the receptionist they said he’s watching the Liverpool game on his phone and won’t be out for another hour and a half. That made us chuckle I admit. An hour or so later we came back to the main building for our champagne afternoon tea. We sat down and relaxed and started to reminisce about our wedding day. My husband popped to the water closet in the bar where he saw drinks being poured as he exited. They turned out to be ours only it wasn’t champagne. The member of staff had poured us Prosecco not champagne. We asked about this and they said oh we always do it no one can tell the difference. My husband immediately sent them back and said no we are paying for champagne and accompanied them back to the bar and watched them pour fresh glasses of champagne. Our food arrived. The sandwiches were nice but the cake was clearly all store bought. I mean come on the price we are paying and we get that. That night we had to call the reception with our mobile phones (the phone in the room didn’t work) we asked for a heater because the room was just to cold. An hour later we got a knock at the door. We don’t have any sorry. My husband drove to a Tesco a few miles away and got us hot water bottles and we EVENTUALLY got some sleep. The next day we woke to look at the views we fell In love with. Only to see the window was steamed up and had dirt all over it and a few spots of mould. That was the final straw. We went down to breakfast but when it arrived it was cold and unappetising. We left it. We went to check out and saw the General Manager. He seemed very uninterested in what we had to say and just kept repeating YEAH YEAH YEAH. YEAH YEAH YEAH. To some it up the room was cold the view was invisible and the WiFi didn’t work. What happened to this place? From having such amazing staff with enough to attend to the guests to a skeleton crew that don’t know what there doing. I did ask a member of the team and they said well the approach of the General Manager is if you need 10 staff run a shift successfully. Use 3 so we can make more profit so I get my bonus. Again this made me chuckle. I will return but I’ll leave it a while till they get back up on there feet and get a higher food hygiene level. If we had known that the staffing levels were so low if affected this we wouldn’t have come back yet. It’s not the building’s or the staffs fault. It’s just being miss managed at the moment. Training and development needed.

Spent the weekend here for a break away from the crazy Christmas I had back in London and although the views were amazing and the room was decent some of the head staff was just rude. I had an accident on the stairs in the hotel and I just got told to be more careful next time. Will never book there again

Lovely hotel with amazing views. over the Menai Straits and across to the Welsh Mountains. We stayed in the” Beaumaris” room which had a wonderful view and had the benefit of a huge shower room in the Turret. The double bed was very comfortable and made for a good nights sleep. The plated Breakfast, (no cereal, fruit, yoghurt or pastries were offered) on the first morning was good but not so much on the 2nd morning. We chose not to eat in the hotel as found the menu to be repetitive and somewhat overpriced. Bar Meals or Snacks were not available. We found bar closed, the lights turned off and door shut at 8pm whilst dinner was being served due to a shortage of staff. Overall a good stay but not great.

We booked to stay for two nights but left after one. The room we booked had stained carpets, mould in the bathroom and was very dusty. We booked afternoon tea which we paid £56 for the two of us. That is to say when it arrived we sent it back. For £56 you get fresh out the packet Mr Kipling's cakes the wrong sandwiches and a pot of tea with miss matched crockery. When we raised these issues with the General Manager Dylan his reply was that it was the nature of the business and these things happen. After explaining to him for some time that this was not acceptable we informed him that we would not be staying any longer. Some of the staff (Not Management) we’re absolutely amazing. I can not fault them in anyway. Wouldn’t recommend staying here unless substantial improvements to how it’s managed are put in place which is a shame because with work it can be an amazing hotel.

Public rooms are magnificent and the staff very helpful. Bedroom was comfortable but had some quirks. In the bathroom, the razor point was above the loo, a long way from the sink and shaving mirror. The shower was great. I think on the catering front, they really could do better. Breakfast was really average, for example the sausages were really lacking and tasted if they came from a catering pack. The toast was flabby and not crisp, and there were no croissants or similar, nor were we offered yoghurt or fresh fruit. I feel for the standard of the room, and food, the Château is expensive.
