“ Country hotel of the year - Exquisite service and attention to detail combine to leave you giddy with luxury. There's the bespoke gold-leaf china on which they serve tea in front of the fire; the choice of breakfast eggs laid by the hotel's chickens, ducks and quails and the stellar art collection ”
The Sunday Times (Ultimate 100 British Hotels)
“ Tucked away in the Wye Valley in the heart of the Welsh countryside is the elegant Edwardian Llangoed Hall country-house hotel. As soon as you arrive on the grounds, the charming and helpful staff lead you to an entrance hall, which immediately sets the tone for your stay: Hunter wellies and Llangoed Hall umbrellas available to borrow, original artworks and letters from past prime ministers on the wall and inviting roaring log fires.
Further along the wide corridor are numerous drawing-rooms and a games-room, perfect to retreat to with the Sunday papers. The hall is now privately owned, and one of the loveliest things about the romantic interior decoration is that it reflects the building’s Ashley-family heritage, but is not overpowering. A framed apron, the first piece Laura Ashley ever made, was hanging in the hall by our suite and was a truly lovely touch ”

“ The motto for Powys – the county that Llangoed Hall resides in – is:
‘Powys – the paradise of Wales’ and with a classic countryside backdrop providing the ultimate feeling of escape, it seems an apt name to us. To the front of the property, a woodland hillside hugs the tranquil River Wye, which meanders its way through the fields that back on to the house. With a croquet court on the lawn, you’d be hard pushed to find a more quintessentially British scene in the height of summer. Next to the lawn you’ll find Llangoed gardens, which flourish from spring onwards, and here chickens and ducks roam free and and lay their eggs, fresh for your breakfast. On that matter, the lavish breakfast is something special indeed; if you’re feeling particularly naughty then you can even treat yourself to duck eggs and laverbread for an exquisite Welsh twist. After breakfast, pop into the neighboring Whistler Room for a private view of the work of James Abbott McNeill Whistler, the renowned British-based artist, whose sentimental and delicate paintings are displayed especially for Llangoed Hall guests ”

Wedding Ideas Magazine
“ Stepping into the grand hall, we absorbed the opulent atmosphere of this historic hotel – yet the surroundings also felt instantly homely. We quickly soaked up its tranquil country house atmosphere and settled in for a few days of luxury seclusion ”
“ Service is refined yet welcoming. Efficient and polite staff seemed to materialize just when needed. Each of the bedrooms has been recently decorated and furnished individually to an extremely high standard. We’re lucky enough to have eaten and stayed at Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. Llangoed Hall presents the best food, accommodation and welcome I have experienced since ”
The Western Mail Newspaper
“ The sounds break the hush of the plush morning room at Llangoed Hall, a country-house hotel snuggled against the Brecon Beacons in deepest Wales.
There is no better place to escape the hurly-burly, surrounded by plump cushions and sipping tea from a Caverswall china cup (just like Prince Charles has in his crockery cupboard at Clarence House)
The Daily Express Newspaper
“ Britain’s Most Romantic Hotel - The experience truly lifts the heart – a mixture of the intimacy of a grand country house party of the past, with that attention to detail and discreet staff who know you want that gin and tonic even before you do, to lavish luxurious of the present.
At Llangoed the idea of a romantic idyll with brilliant service may also be simple, but the fact that it runs like clockwork is down to a dedicated team and the taste, in every sense, is exquisite
The Daily Mail Weekend Magazine
“ What an absolute pleasure this visit has been. As soon as my sister and I were ushered to our bedrooms we fell for them, and not just because the retro bedside radios were spouting The Archers as we walked in. They had magical views of the Wye Valley and Black Mountains, charming pictures, ornaments and antiques, decanters of sherry, fresh garden flowers, Welsh wool fabrics, Peter Reed linen on the beds and luxurious new bathroom with Penhaligon’s products. They were perfect because they were personal and made us each think: this is mine and it feels right ”
The Daily Telegraph
“ In the paneled dining room we sense that everyone is thinking the same
thing: this is mighty special and something of a secret. Not for long. I suspect that Nick Brodie will soon be awarded a Michelin star but, having seen him picking raspberries in the rain, I don’t think it will go to his head. Llangoed Hall is the real deal ”
