One of the best hotels in all the world.
I have stayed in hotels all over the world and Gellifawr is one of the best.
An absolute treat. Friendly helpful staff, fantastic food, beautiful child friendly grounds and gardens and ponds vibrant with wildlife. As a couple of disabled guests that are occasional wheelchair users we were well looked after. A free parking space outside the reception entrance. Porters to carry all our luggage from car to room no problem. We didn't even have to ask, it was offered. Ok there was no lifts (pointed out to us when we booked) but as we can scale stairs this was no problem, bannister was sturdy. Showers are stand in the bath type and could perhaps benefit from a grab handle for safety but our bath was none slip, low sided and we didn't feel unsafe. Stunning views set in an area of outstanding beauty full of wonderful suprises and things to see and do. A perfect joy. Thanks to all who made our stay so wonderful. Adrian Davies-Ratcliffe.
Two days away
We enjoyed our stay at Gellifawr so much we intend going back soon.
Excellent service, comfort, food, peace and quiet, all together in the beautiful Pembroke countryside. A very convenient centre for exploring the hills, beaches and valleys.
very picturesque place to stay but quite remote
We enjoyed our stay very much even though we didnt realise how remote the hotel was we stayed in the coach house which was lovely and enjoyed the peace and quiet because we didnt have signals on our phones so no nagging families the only thing the hotel needs is some kind of entertainment over a weekend I know its a quiet retreat but its nice to have a little entertaining otherwise couldnt fault it even the food was lovely all cooked from fresh local produce plus the staff were very friendly and helpful a delightful stay thankyou
Excellent stay in beautiful location
Excellent hotel in the pretty Welsh countryside.
The staff were lovely and welcoming. We decided to stay and eat here too - turned out to be a very good decision as the food was very good and on visiting Fishguard the next day before catching our ferry we discovered the food options there were extremely limited.
Would I go back.?.........no brainer.!
Such a beautiful little welsh treasure hidden away.
This was our first stay at Gwellifawr Hotel (I stayed in The Cottages ).The next time we shall be taking our family.
Excellent apartment and excellent location!
We really enjoyed our stay, wish it was longer.
Nice little cottage, well decorated, fully equipped kitchen.
Lovely location, great food, ideal for visiting Ffald-y-Brenin
Lovely place, lovely people
Gellifawr is in a lovely, quiet setting.
The lakes round the back of the property a worth a look, though they are not safe for children on their own. Newtown is only a short drive away for basic shops, we went further afield to see different bits of the magnificent coast. Breakfasts are generous and varied, between 8.00 - 10.00 am. We ate in on the first night, food was delicious, but the menu is quite limited if you wanted to eat in every night. The service was very friendly and the room was very comfortable, beautifully clean. A very restful holiday for us.
Good accommodation but needs overhauling during the off-season to bring it up to standard
The accommodation was characterful and spacious.
There was a comfortable bed and adequate storage space. The kitchen was clean and large and generally well equipped - although the crockery/cutlery and kitchen equipment was sparse - could have done with some good knives, a jug to measure milk and a mixing bowl - this is self catering so you do need to be able to cook without bringing everything with you. The fridge door seemed to have dropped and it was difficult to keep closed. All the of the doors in the accommodation squeaked really loudly - not good when sneaking out to the loo in the middle of the night. There was a problem with the blind in the bedroom - very high and almost impossible to close, even with the pole provided (also the window in that room had not been cleaned for some time). The blind over the fire door in the kitchen had also been taken off which meant you are exposed to the outside world if you pop into the kitchen to make a cup of tea in your PJs. There was a lovely little communal garden in the centre of the apartment buildings, but it would be nice to have a small table and chairs outside each individual smaller unit so you can have a drink outside in the hot weather (there are benches outside the larger properties). We were told the property had only recently been taken under new management and it does look like there are a few maintenance issues that need to be addressed, and I am sure they will be over the next year. In particular, the beautifully designed grounds and gardens are in real need of a good gardener to get the gardens back into shape before the design is lost altogether. The bar area in the hotel is nice and the staff very friendly. My only objection here is that they were charging £3.25 a pint for the local ale which is brewed literally 2 minutes away, where you can buy the same beer at £1.75 a pint. Obviously the hotel buys it in bulk for less than that so should not be trying to make possibly £2 a pint profit - champion the local, sell it at a good price and more will be purchased. We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was really good - although I wonder whether it would be possible to have a menu that let you have just a main course, instead of just the £23 per head 2 course (or more for 3) which is quite high - I know we could only afford to eat here once during our stay - if you had a family I doubt if you would come into the restaurant at all. For a spacious room, the tables for 2 are much too small. One poor couple with a baby in a highchair next to them, did not have enough room on their table to put their vegetable dish and had to put on another table and keep getting up to get it. This when the restaurant was empty except for us and them. For goodness sake, when it is quiet, let couples have the luxury of sitting at a large table.
This all sounds a bit petty I know, but things like this make or spoil a really good break and if this establishment wants to keep to the 'boutique' end of accommodation, they need to up the standards a little bit.
We booked this cottage last minute and the service we had was superb.
We arrived late and the cottage was immaculate, couldn't of asked for better. Such amazing value too. We felt right at home so much so we didn't want to leave. All staff were very polite and helpful with advice on things to do and see in the are. Highly recommended. I have already told friends and family they have to go ;-)
