Spent one weekend night at Pen-y-Dyffryn in November. In line with many/all of the reviewers of this hotel, we thought the food was very good indeed, with the standard of the breakfast being just as good as the dinner. The staff are excellent and always on hand and the idea of tea and scone on arrival is a nice touch. Sadly, our room was something of a let down. The first room we were shown to was nice enough, if a little small, but with only a queen-sized bed, not really what we wanted. We asked if a room with a larger bed was available and were given The Terrace Room which indeed does have a king/two singles. The beds themselves were very comfortable, but the room was small and really of the standard of a tired B&B at a much lower price.
Now we did book last minute and maybe the rate was discounted a little but we parted with £200 for one night's dinner bed and breakfast for 2 and call me old fashioned (or even a miser) but by my way of thinking, I expected a little better.
Having said that, the overall experience was very good and we would certainly recommend this hotel to others.
