“Good value, glorious views and exceptional trouble taken to ensure guests enjoy their visit ”

“When you arrive you will be offered complimentary high tea. This is a welcoming place and, like a cruise liner, Pen-y-Dyffryn produces a daily news sheet (for example, ‘Good Morning, it’s Thursday’) with a weather forecast, suggestions for local activities and a ‘walk of the day’. The owner (a retired academic) circulates among the breakfast tables with helpful advice. You feel strongly that she and her husband want you to enjoy yourself. The rooms are not cutting-edge modern, but they are clean, comfortable and have fine views. Some baths have spas that tickle you with bubbles. The astonishing value is underlined by the good four-course dinner and hearty breakfast that are included in the room price.”
