Me and my beautiful new wife had to bring our wedding date forward so had to pick somewhere quickly to stay on our honeymoon and after reading some good reviews plumped for this hotel and wow what a stay. The staff were extremely friendly and only to pleased to help you in anyway possible from making you feel relaxed and comfy to carrying your drinks from where you are sitting waiting for your dinner to your dinner table, even only to happy to bring spring water and tea and biscuits to your room. The rooms were spacious, homely and the double Jacuzzi was to die for. As for the food it was just out of this world. The home made bread and butter, the delicious blueberry and almond tart with the most gorgeous home made pastry and the wonderfully cooked pigeon breast and pheasant, everything was delicious even the cooked breakfasts were better than anything you will ever try. If you are looking for a one off 5 star four course meal then the food alone is worth the stay. The courses were brought out gradually so you could digest every tasty morsel and not feel rushed into finishing. And when we went to congratulate one of the two chefs she was a young lady of about 21 but wow what a chef. We also had an in room massage from a
wonderful lady who although we paid her for two massages which lasted two hours she stayed for nearly three making us feel relaxed with foot spas, very friendly and we both had an absolutely fantastic massage. She was extremely professional, friendly and we definately reccomend this as part of your stay. Overall this hotel is five star on everything and we plan on going back every year for our anniversary especially as we can snuggle up by the warm log fires in the lounges while we sup on a nice pint of lager.

Another excellent visit to our favorite hotel. Once again everything was great including the weather, perfect area for walking if a little steep in places.( Offas Dyke!)
The view over the garden from the Champagne room was sublime, snowdrops in abundance together with a large variety of wild birds to watch.
The food, housekeeping and welcome was as usual first class.

I do not generally write reviews but feel the need to do so in this instance. We have recently returned from a two day break at Pen-y-Dyffryn having had a great time. The food was excellent, the wine choice just as good and the hotel had a very nice cosy feel about it. The service was very friendly and professional and the rooms above average I would say.
The location of the Hotel is perfect, offering a host of choices on how to spend your daytime. We managed Chester, Iron bridge and a local a local walk then sadly ran out of time. We look forward to returning soon and have already sent many recommendations to friends all promising to give it a try. They will not re disappointed.

We found Pen-y-Dyffryn Country Hotel quite by mistake browsing the internet but what a find.
In all the reviews I post on Tripadvisor I always start by saying that they are my personal opinions and therefore cant be responsible for how readers interpret them and given the recent media interest in the accuracy of reviews posted I would confirm that my thoughts are my own and are true reflection of our stay.

From the moment we arrived the staff couldnt have been more helpful. Everything was explained clearly and any question answered promptly. Complimentary afternoon tea including scones and homemade jam was taken in one of the very comfortable lounges complete with log fire. Pre dinner drinks were taken in the small but cosy bar and we were given plenty of time to study the dinner menu. Dinner was excellent, the chef obviously knows whats he`s doing and it was lovely to see as much use as possible of locally sourced ingredients. A comprehensive wine list is available with something for everybody.

We stayed in one of the "Lower Court" cottages which had obviously just been redecorated to a good standard and was very comfortable. If I only have one negative comment it is that there was a considerable gap around the door and its frame and as the wind was howling on the night we stayed there was quite a draft blowing in.

Overall our stay was extremely comfortable, welcoming and helpful staff (a rarity these days), with lovely lounge areas and bar. Restaurant was very good as was the standard and cleanliness of our room.

All in all the ideal weekend retreat or longer if you wish.

Went for a long weekend. Was absolutely brilliant. Lovely welcome with tea and scones. Brilliant dinner with local produce from a small but ever changing menu. Good strong wine list as well. If you're into you walking there are brilliant routes with spectacular scenery. The owner will help you plan where you want to go over a cracking breakfast. The staff can't do more for you and the ambiance is the right side of homely with out being stuffy. If you like a chain hotel with health spar and loyalty card scheme I wouldn't bother. If you're looking for the personal touch with good food, friendly and helpful staff along with a treck through the countryside then get yourself there.
