“Superb!”
Reviewed 22 May 2012

We were fortunate enough to be the first paying guests in the Nightingale Suite to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. The house has just been re-furbished to its original condition and is sumptuous. One must remember that it is still a work in progress with some minor exterior ground work going on, nothing to worry about though. A swimming pool and spa are still under construction, about a year away!! Can’t wait!

The staff were very helpful and welcoming although some were a little nervous. However, given they were a totally new team (many never having worked in a hotel before) and this was their first "real" guest weekend I felt more than a little sympathy. Over our 2 day stay you could see them beginning to grow in confidence. It will come.

The rooms and building are fabulous. The restaurant is a great place to eat with a varied menu and delicious food. We sampled the afternoon tea (on two days), which due to a promotional opening offer was very busy and booking is recommended. This also was fantastic. A three tier cake stand full of goodies and all ours! Only one point, the making of tea seems to be a mystery here, and at afternoon tea and at breakfast we had to ask for the tea to be re-made with a sufficient amount of leaves to actually impart some flavour and colour.

There were a few small teething troubles due to it being the first guest weekend, but the real test of a good hotel is how these things are dealt with, and the manager couldn't have done more to put things right.

However, it's new, people are learning, they have a very good starting point and it will become right. Visit here and you won't be disappointed. It's very special.


Many thanks to the General Manager Mr Mark Rawlings-Lloyd, Warwick the Maitre d', the Chef (apologies I can't recall your name) and all of the staff who made it such a wonderful stay.

Me and my family where greated by a loverly doorman, then was shown into the reception and was gob smacked at the helpfullness of the receptionist and the sheer awe of the beauty of the reception hall. We where then shown to our rooms and fell in love with Dyfi suite which had fantastic views. The loverly doorman then brought up our bags from the car, what a loverly gentleman.

The evening meal was very fancy, but tasted great, and the same can be said for the breakfast the following morning.

Will be coming back again, Thank you Nanteos for a loverly time at your hotel.

Room Tip: There all good, i asked for a tour of some of the rooms.

By chance we picked the Nanteos Mansion and glad we were. It is stunning, beautiful location and the rooms are amazing. The whole place has been refurbished to a high standard and we felt very comfortable. It was just a shame we only had the one night, if we come by this way again, we won't hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Pay the bit more and stay in one of the suites, it just feels like you are back on the set of Upstai...

Arriving outside this lovingly renovated 18th Century Country Mansion Hotel, situated in the beautiful Welsh countryside, I was greeted by a very helpful and friendly porter. This excellent service continued during the duration of my stay, and the breakfast food and service was second to none. Highly recommend a visit soon!

Most unwelcoming; having received an invitation to tea, was turned away. Front of house hospitality and organisation is something they will have to work on to merit 5 stars. The grounds were unfinished and the entrance foyer lacked atmosphere and warmth.

Mark R, General Manager at Nanteos Mansion, responded to this review, 1 June 2012
It was with some dismay that I read your review, our recent afternoon tea promotion to celebrate the opening of this historic Mansion has been a tremendous success. So much so that it has meant that booking has become essential over the month of May to ensure a table for afternoon tea. We did not initially ask people to book, as we presumed that anyone travelling to Nanteos, due to the nature of the property would phone ahead to assure themselves of a table.

This has proved the case and I am delighted with the repines and very kind comments from all the visitors to the Mansion.

With regard to the exterior works you refer to, the Mansion had only been open a couple of days, and due to rather inclement weather we were waiting for the grounds to firm up to enable these works to be completed.

I am sorry that your first impressions of Nanteos has been of a negative one, which is certainly not our aim, hopefully you will visit us agin in the near future to enjoy the delights of Nanteos, and on this note, should you decide to do so, please do not hesitate to contact me personally to make the necessary arrangements.

With kind regards.
