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)

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

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.

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).

Fantastic location Fantastic staff Fantastic stay! Room fully equipped, comfortable bed and beautiful bed linen. Dinner and breakfast were both excellent. Staff very attentive and made the whole experience more enjoyable so thank you.


This must be one of the best hotels I have stayed in .. not just because of the facilities but because of the setting, the service, the quality of the food and the art work!!! Not many hotels have original classic art on the walls. This hotel is pet friendly with 2 rooms set aside for dogs which worked out really well for us. The hotel is magnificently furnished but still has a very homely and welcoming atmosphere . Great restaurant with excellent menu both for evening meal and breakfast .. and if you can manage it afternoon tea.The grounds are magnificent with beautiful gardens and lots of walks all around A great base for exploring the Brecon Beacons and close to Hay on Wye. Will definitely be back.
