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.

Great Place ,Great Staff, Great Food...Don't go Saturday Night
Miskin Manor has been beautifully restored by the current owners, and as such has a wonderful atmosphere about the place, both in the interior and the lovely grounds it stands in. The staff where lovely, very friendly and helpful. The room itself was very clean and tastefully decorated, we stayed in one of The Cottages connected to the main part of the house. We had both afternoon tea and an evening meal during our stay and the food was of a good standard, although we had a one hour wait for the main meal to be served, though it has to be said we were pretty relaxed and in no rush to get back to the bar or our room.
The only real problem (and it was a big one) was the noise on the Saturday Night. At an establishment like this you naturally expect Weddings and party events to be staged at the Weekends, and with that you expect a certain level of activity and noise, which is mentioned both on the Miskin Manor website and on your booking form when you get it. What you don't expect is a P.A. system next door to your room. Luckily we were out on the Saturday evening and didn't return until 11.15. But we still had 45 minutes of the loudest music I've ever experienced in a hotel, to get an idea of how loud it was, we had the telly on full blast and we couldn't hear it. Thankfully at midnight it stopped. But if you're planning a romantic weekend away, I think I'd avoid Miskin Manor. If we'd have been there all evening we wouldn't have been happy at all. It's a shame because this hotel rates very highly in many areas. Yes we'd return to Miskin because we loved so many aspects of it, but it would only be a midweek stay.

Room a bit chilly on arrival, ok after boosting heater. Took almost 10 mins for hot water to begin filling bath.

I have stayed before and it was very good; however this time it was a very noisy and poor experience overall. Some of the service was careless and demonstrated very poor training. However other staff members were very good. As usual, finding people to provide tea and coffee and a drink was a hunt and a hide and seek exercise.
The lamb was tough and I left most of it on my plate. Scrambled eggs should be fresh!
I looked forward to staying but not sure if I would do so again.

Miskin Manor
i booked a single ensuite room, on arrival was shown to a massive double room. The hotel is beautiful - although a little chilly the staff couldn't be more helpful-they fetched me an extra heater for my room without hesitation and I was so warm after that it made a huge difference. Breakfast was lovely, buffet style hot & cold but if requested they will make anything not there - poached eggs for example.
The decor is a little worn and the hotel appears dated - but let's face it-the place is older than all of us!!
The only off putting thing was the cat that seemed to live there-I am not a fan of cats and to find it at the top of the stairs and on the seat in the hallway was creepy! If I was with my partner I feel we'd have had an issue as he is allergic to cats-maybe it should be mentioned before booking.

Beautiful Grounds and Hotel
Even though it was January we really enjoyed strolling around the grounds after our breakfast. We only booked for one night but we will certainly be back again. The staff from checking in to checking out were very helpful.

Miskin Manor Country Hotel
This is a great place for a weekend away. Amazing period facilities, lots of history and plenty of space to wind down. The food is well presented and satisfying. Staff are courteous and welcoming. The only criticism is the lack of strong WiFi in the rooms. For us we had a conference call with our colleagues in the US and had to go downstairs to get a decent connection. For leisure this is ideal. For business, not a good location unless you are happy with not getting WiFi in your room.
