We stayed over on a Friday night due to attending a friends wedding at The Maes Manor.
We arrived at lunchtime to be greeted by Jennifer in the car park showing us through to check in
From this moment on, nothing was too much trouble!
Paul kindly drove us to the wedding avoiding the need for a taxi, really kind gesture
We stayed in the Black and White room, that was nicely decorated and tastefully furnished
The ensuite whilst a little small has a good hot shower and the little touches such as shower gel and moisturiser were well received
Upon our return from the wedding we had a drink in the bar noting that our hosts had laid on nibbles free for the guests.
Breakfast was available in the morning in the lovely kitchen area with a wide range of options
We have been lucky to have travelled extensively throughout the world but rarely have we experienced such excellent customer service. Very good value for money.
Thanks Jennifer and Paul for making our visit to Blackwood memorable.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Your hosts Paul and Jennifer Taylor extend a warm welcome to you here at The Rock. The former winners of the Enterprise Inns National Pub of the year competition have put their plans to emigrate down-under on hold. Having taken on the tenancy of The Rock in July, they have completely refurbished the entire hostelry throughout. We offer an elegant, well stocked bar, choice of real ales, interesting selection of wines and some old fashioned soft drinks which all catch the eye as you approach. The menu is comprehensive, predominantly fresh food based, catering for both those on the move lunchtimes, as well as those who prefer to linger. Our specials are innovative and changed regularly. ... more less
