My Husband and I visited Llyndir Hall this month for a wedding. Despite the final leg of our trip being somewhat tense, up a narrow country road upon which expensive 4x4s demonstrated limited regard for other road users, initial impressions of the hotel itself were very positive, with the lovely old house set amidst well-maintained lawns and mature trees.
We received a very warm welcome from reception upon arrival, and this remained consistent throughout our stay. I couldn't sing the praises of the majority of the staff highly enough, with a particular mention to the two ladies who were on reception during our stay. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble ... which was very helpful, given that the key cards for our room required regular reactivation, so I had call to speak with them a lot!
We were in room 47 - a bit away from the main part of the hotel, I found this to be pleasingly quiet for most of our stay. The room was very spacious, and immaculately clean on arrival and had pretty much everything you could ask for. There was a very informative little hotel directory in the room, summarising everything from breakfast times to the TV channels. One small gripe would be that the Wi-Fi connection was terribly slow. I suspect this may have been due to our room being so far from the main "hub" of the building.
Both the other half and I were very impressed by the breakfast offerings. An all-you-can-eat arrangements tends to go down very well with both of us, so it was already off to a good start. I was also very pleased to see that they offered freshly cooked eggs of your choosing, in addition to the Scrambled manifestation available on the buffet. I never cease to be amazed by a well-poached egg, as I can't seem to make them myself, so a big thumbs up for that! The lady who greeted us for breakfast on the first morning, whose name I did not catch, was especially lovely. Upon enquiring as to whether we would like tea or coffee, she responded very attentively to my request for "all the coffee. Strong," provided me with coffee for two (for one) and for the duration of the breakfast checked back with me to ensure that I had enough. Given the early hour, this was hugely appreciated and arguably contributed positively to the establishment of a harmonious marriage!
The wedding food was spectacularly good, particularly the main meal in the daytime, and once again, the staff very approachable and helpful throughout.
Overall, a very enjoyable and lovely stay. Neither the other half or myself would have any reservations about returning again if we were in the area ... indeed, he expressed his willingness to do so based on the breakfast alone! less
