We found Pen-y-Dyffryn Country Hotel quite by mistake browsing the internet but what a find.
In all the reviews I post on Tripadvisor I always start by saying that they are my personal opinions and therefore cant be responsible for how readers interpret them and given the recent media interest in the accuracy of reviews posted I would confirm that my thoughts are my own and are true reflection of our stay.
From the moment we arrived the staff couldnt have been more helpful. Everything was explained clearly and any question answered promptly. Complimentary afternoon tea including scones and homemade jam was taken in one of the very comfortable lounges complete with log fire. Pre dinner drinks were taken in the small but cosy bar and we were given plenty of time to study the dinner menu. Dinner was excellent, the chef obviously knows whats he`s doing and it was lovely to see as much use as possible of locally sourced ingredients. A comprehensive wine list is available with something for everybody.
We stayed in one of the "Lower Court" cottages which had obviously just been redecorated to a good standard and was very comfortable. If I only have one negative comment it is that there was a considerable gap around the door and its frame and as the wind was howling on the night we stayed there was quite a draft blowing in.
Overall our stay was extremely comfortable, welcoming and helpful staff (a rarity these days), with lovely lounge areas and bar. Restaurant was very good as was the standard and cleanliness of our room.
All in all the ideal weekend retreat or longer if you wish.
