Jan S,
"Lovely warm welcome and great food"

Lovely to see a small boutique hotel like this thriving. Big plus point is the bar where the gin list to enormous and the restaurant which, though pricey, is worth every penny. Food is delicious and unusual. Definitely worth a diversion.

"Great little boutique hotel"

Great little boutique hotel just outside Bridgend town centre. Beautiful exterior as you drive in. Quaint style room, great fashionable restaurant and really lovely attentive staff. Will stay again that’s for sure.

"Night away"

First time to stay at this hotel. Myself and my husband booked the regal suite for one night. Staff were very attentive on arrival. And catered to all our needs . We booked into their restaurant that evening where the food was amazing and they couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast the next morning was very tasty and a nice variety. All in all an amazing stay and will definitely stay again in the near future.

The food is fantastic. Highly recommend
