"Beautiful Converted Chapel"

Our family (6 adults, 2 young children and our dogs) stayed at Capel Cartref end of March 2014.
Firstly, the booking process went incredibly smooth thanks to Marnie. She ensured that whatever we needed (cot,baby gate etc) was ready and available for our arrival. Although I have not met her, I felt like she was an old friend of mine as she is so friendly and attentive in every email.
On our arrival at Capel Cartref we were blown away. The place is even more impressive than it appears in the photos. It's been renovated to an incredibly high standard and a great amount of thought and detail has gone in to every bit of space.
Every bedroom was beautifully furnished and all the bathrooms immaculately clean and spacious. The whole place is well equipped.
The best room by far is the large open plan lounge area that has 4 sofas, however we spend the most of our time sat in the kitchen/diner with the French doors open and enjoying the views over the river.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone, you won't be disappointed. I can't wait to go back later this year.

Wow! What an amazing review! The photos are fabulous - thank you. It's great to be able to see you actually sitting in the chapel and using it as a family home - the children look well happy. We are so glad that you had a good time there and very glad to see that you will be coming back sometime soon. Thank you once again. Take care and kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

"A perfect place to stay with friends and family"

Couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Plenty of room for the nine of us and with three bathrooms there was no queuing! Very well equipped kitchen, plenty of towels supplied and loads of extra blankets although these were not needed as the chapel is lovely and warm. The chapel is beautifully restored and has such a homely feel about it. I was feeling a little anxious as I was responsible for booking the chapel for friends but the reaction when they arrived and looked around was great. None of us wanted to leave! We will all be coming back again and have recommended the chapel to so many friends and family.

Wow! Thank you so much for such positive feedback. Thank you also for looking after the chapel so well. Please, come back! We are chuffed that you chose Capel Cartref and that your friends and family were happy with your choice. Thank you and kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

"Wonderful experience in a gorgeous chapel."

Fabulous location. Lots of walks, golf, scenery, pubs, history and even the famous healing waters right near the chapel. It was a birthday celebration and Marnie laid on a welcome birthday pack that was a great surprise. Very comfortable and spacious chapel suitable for large groups and small.

Hi there, thank you so much for your lovely review. We are very happy that your birthday celebration was a positive one. Thank you also for looking after the chapel during your visit. We would gladly welcome you back! Take care and kind regards, Yonni and Marnie
