Quality and Value

Several overnight stays here. Miguel continues to improve the environment; something new every few months. Great meal last night. For what it's worth, it was Tuesday and I had to wait for a table - That tells you all you need to know about the quality and value of the menu. Room prices are good too. Pleasant setting and easy to access a lot of South Wales.

Great atmospheric eatery

Great atmospheric eatery/hotel in beautiful location. I had the Boquerones starter and the venison which was totally on point. Superb. Washed down with some Veuve. Had a sneaky taste of my friends Ravioli which was awesome too. Not a big pasta fan normally. Will be back with more friends soon. Thank you!
