Great Place for Couples to enjoy a special weekend
This is the third time we have stayed at the Rothay Manor and we were not disappointed. The whole experience from beginning to end was delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts and the evening dining was a joy (word of caution - not really suitable for those who expect a large serving of meat and two veg followed by pud as the menu reflects the creative flair of the celebrity chef and is a whole facinating dining experience in itself). Friendly staff do their best to make the visit special. We will be back!

6/10 Good

Poor value for money
The room didn’t correspond to the price or star rating of the hotel; nowhere to put the suitcases other than middle of the floor and impossible to open windows on the middle of a road literally only a few metres away. This is not 4 star accommodation and certainly not worthy of (well) over £200 per night. It’s a shame as the hotel is pretty and probably has nice rooms; ours was shamefully overpriced in terms of value for money. The breakfast was very good and varied, but dinner was very limited in choice and the imposed service charge not appreciated.
