This is not a hotel in the normal sense. Its a restaurant with rooms attached. The tasting menu in the restaurant was fantastic (note takes 4 hours to serve) but this was the only dining option at the hotel. There was nothing else, not even basic food at the bar. Given the remoteness of the location other dining options involved...

A must visit idyllic hotel. Arriving and approaching the hotel up the gravel driveway whilst surveying the immaculate gardens you just knew you were in for a treat. Greeted as we stepped from our car, bags swiftly whisked away and deposited in our room, while be wandered to reception. After checking in we were given a brief tour of the...

My wife and I stayed and ate at Ynyshir Hall for my wife’s surprise birthday weekend, and from start to finish it was pretty much faultless. The hall itself has recently relaunched itself as a Michelin Restaurant and Luxury Rooms instead of being a hotel, but I suspect little has physically changed. The hall, which sits within 14 acres of...

Don't go here unless you enjoy paying ridiculous prices for small quantities of weird food. We stayed in the pink bedroom. I mean PINK. My wife who is a very good interior decorator thought the entire property was unusually decorated and was "tired".

I'm utterly amazed to see a 'disappointing' review. I wonder if this was the same place. The building itself is lovely with great staff. But the the food being 'OK' is bewildering, it has a Michelin star. I have been fortunate enough to to travel a lot and have stayed in some lovely places. The food here was the best...

We stayed for 4 nights and when we booked it was a "hotel" but before we arrived it had changed to be a "restaurant with rooms". But with the one price menu at £95 each we went out to dinner in local gastro pubs. After arriving around 3 pm from a 4 hour journey we asked for afternoon tea, which...

We had booked dinner and overnight stay. I am sorry to say that the experience was disappointing. Although the staff did everything possible to make our visit a success, there are some basic irritants that need to be changed. On arrival, we had a drink in the bar which looks in desperate need of renovation. The furniture is tacky, and...

I treated my partner to afternoon tea here for his birthday. The lady who showed us into the lovely, sunny room said we could have a free upgrade of afternoon tea and as well as the lovely sandwiches and welsh bread (Barabrith?) we had a gorgeous selection of tiny desserts which were all delicious. The upmarket hotel is beautifully decorated...

My overall impression of Ynyshir is similar to some other reviewers. I had not visited previously but it would seem that the kitchen are running the show here and they do not always make good hoteliers. There was no doubt that some of the dishes that we ate were fantastic but they alone did not compensate for other severe shortcomings...

The restaurant is impeccable but the hotel services lag behind for the price. The food has to be tasted and the 11 course tasting menu beautiful. The sommelier was excellent and his advice impeccable. A bit more attention to service detail in the hotel will make this one of the best experiences.
