4AA Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
PENDOYLAN ROAD , Pontyclun nr Cardiff, CF72 8ND

Recommended by Condé Nast Johansens

Our inspector loved "The Oak Room, perfect for a small private dinner party."

Easily assessable from junction 34 of the M4 and only 20 minutes from Cardiff this privately owned 4*hotel offers free Wi-Fi, parking and health club, and boasts the culinary wonders of a two rosette-awarded Meisgyn Restaurant. This magnificent 19th-Century Country House is one of Wales' most beautiful and impressive hotels set within 22 acres of idyllic landscaped gardens. With breathtaking views and a relaxed ambience of secluded tranquillity guests have everything they need to embrace their indulgent desires.

Each of the 43 en-suite rooms are individually designed and decorated and are imbued with the same sense of personality and charm that permeates throughout the rest of the Hotel. From cosy, quaint cottage twin rooms to sumptuous, elegant four-poster suites, there is a room for everyone to enjoy. Each room is furnished to the highest standard and includes all the facilities one would expect from a hotel of this calibre, including; free Wi-Fi, digital TV, complimentary toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities, trouser press and hairdryer.

No visit to Miskin Manor would be complete without first sampling the culinary wonders of the two rosette-awarded Meisgyn Restaurant. Serving freshly prepared, locally sourced Welsh produce in a menu that encompasses modern British and rustic cuisine, the food is innovative yet classically scrumptious. The restaurant itself is located in the main manor house and boasts luxurious surroundings coupled with scenic views of the magnificently maintained grounds.
The illustrious Miskin Manor Hotel is steeped in local history and intrigue. A great deal of care has been taken to ensure that the original charm and character of this Grade II listed building has been lovingly restored and maintained. From the delightful galleries in the Minstrel Hall to the effervescent beauty of the gardens and grounds, the atmosphere is rich with the romanticism of a bygone era. At Miskin Manor Hotel, comfort and relaxation are the cornerstones of their ethos. The superb health club offers an indoor heated pool, an extensive selection of gym equipment, a sauna and a beauty spa. For those that prefer more natural surroundings, the sublimely cultivated gardens offer a vibrant expanse of exquisite blooms, secluded glens and shady woodlands.
As a privately owned hotel, the team take great pride in offering an attentive and personable service. Such exceptional commitment to customer care has contributed greatly to their enviable reputation for hosting events. With the facilities and flexibility to cater to any company's needs and requirements, the hotel is the perfect place for corporate delegates. There are several diverse function rooms available, ranging from small, more intimate rooms to large high ceilinged venues with sweeping views. It's not all business though, from anniversaries and birthday celebrations, to gala dinners and staff parties, the hotel offers an extensive range of service options that guarantee a unique, personal experience. Whatever the event, the professional staff and the fantastic events co-ordinator will be on hand to ensure every detail runs smoothly. The Hotel's wedding facilities are particularly impressive. From glittering champagne receptions and elegant banquets, to the photogenic beauty of the stunning gardens and the timeless elegance of their reception rooms, it is the perfect venue for that most special of days.

Despite cultivating a sense of idyllic seclusion, the hotel is only a 5 minute drive from Junction 34 off the M4 and, with free parking, is easily accessible. The city of Cardiff is just a 20 minute drive away and it is 40 minutes to Swansea. Cardiff Central Rail Station provides transport links to most major destinations across the UK and there is a local station at Pontyclun, an 11 minute taxi journey from the Hotel. If flying in, the nearest international airport is over an hour's drive away in Bristol, whereas the local Cardiff-Wales Airport is only 35 minutes. The Hotel also offers free helipad use.
The nearby local area provides visitors with a wealth of exciting attractions to explore. Only a 12 minute drive away is St Fagans National History Museum, Wales' most popular heritage attraction. Standing in the grounds of the grandiose St Fagans Castle, a late 16th Century manor house, this open-air museum is a true celebration of Welsh culture and tradition. From galleries and exhibitions to live craft displays and activities, it offers a spectacularly vivid representation of Wales through the ages. Less than half an hour away is Rhondda Heritage Park, a former coal mine, offering fully guided underground tours and a reconstructed period village street. Golf lovers will be especially keen to visit the famous Vale of Glamorgan Golf and Country Club. With world class facilities, two well-established championship golf courses and an array of top industry accolades, it is required viewing for anyone with even a passing interest in the game.

With an ever-increasing choice of attractions, coupled with its' close proximity to the coast and mountains, the city of Cardiff truly has something for everyone to enjoy. From charming Edwardian and Victorian arcades to ultra-modern shopping centres, quaint cafes and restaurants to stylish bars and vibrant clubs, it offers a wide spectrum of retail choices. Culture lovers will be sure to visit the National Museum Cardiff, home to one of the finest Impressionist galleries outside Paris, featuring works by Monet, Picasso and Renoir. In Cardiff Bay the Wales Millennium Centre stands next to the Grade 1 listed Pierhead building, offering a varied programme of opera, dance, theatre and comedy. The Norwegian Church, where children's author Roald Dahl was christened, is now an arts centre and cafe with a Nordic flavour.

No Lighting!
Our first room had no light in entrance and three bulbs had gone in various lamps, making the room dark. Also the heated towel rail in the bathroom was broken it was leaking.this was in room 15.
we were asked if we would like to change rooms which we did to room 6 which was smaller but cosier,towel rail did not heat up in this room either,and not all lamps working. Went for a swim and the pool and changing rooms were cold. The reason for our stay was for my mothers funeral we thought we would stay somewhere which would be a bit cheerier than a Premier Inn we were wrong.

Room
The room was very comfortable (especially the 4 poster bed) but also very dated and in need of a makeover. The large sparten bathroom was in dire need of some modernisation

Building and grounds are beautiful. Rooms decorated to a high standard. Attention to detail required
Room (31): tiny tv in corner, difficult to see and also offset from dresser so u can see wires running down the wall. Get a bigger tv and centre it above dresser! Also this room is directly above front entrance - ban smokers from standing outside front door as the smoke comes straight into the bedroom when window is open - appalling! Buffet breakfast was not great - fruit and pastries not replenished after 845am, hash browns very rubbery, utensils not wiped. I have had better breakfast buffets in a travelodge and would expect more quality and attention from a 4* hotel.
finally re the spa. We had express pedicure - £18. But that only entailed a shape and polish of nails, lasted 15 mins. No soaking of feet or anything else. Very poor value for money.

Not very welcoming
A very dark and imposing hotel. The lights are on timers and this makes the hallways very dark and eary at night time.
Food was nice, staff were friendly. Wouldn't stay here again.

Our new favourite hotel
We have stayed at many hotels in around Cardiff and this one is definitely one of our favourites. Only 20 minutes from the city centre, it was very convenient for the purpose of visit. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The furnishings and decor were very in keeping creating lots of atmosphere and it is a delightful place to turn up to. Our room was great, very spacious and a good size comfy bed. The bathroom would benefit from a little refurbishment but was clean and warm and stocked with everything you would expect of a 4 star hotel. We hope to find another good value deal on late rooms.com for a future visit to this hotel!
