“Fabulous break.”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2016

Beautiful house. Pool was lovely and warm and with 5 teenagers, a 6year old and 4year old, was hardly ever not in use. Hot tub also great and where we spent our evenings. Everything beautifully clean and very well equipped. Mary, Thankyou for your warm welcome and kindness, you too are fabulous. Would definitely recommend this house and would love to stay again sometime

“Lovely Week at Hafod Lodge!”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2016

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at the gorgeous Hafod Lodge! As soon as we arrived we could see how lovely the grounds/lodge were, stunning property & in the summer months the gardens will look amazing! The Pool & Hot Tub were amazing! We all as a family spent lots of time in here as the pool was heated which was a huge bonus! We had a lovely meal in the Vineyard bistro which was 2 minutes away & the boys played a game of golf which was also 5 minutes up from the Lodge. The Lodge is well equipped & has rooms to suit everyone, from chilling in the conservatory to being snug in front of the log burner in the living room. There's plenty of room here & we would highly recommend this Lodge to others. Thank You Mary!

“Fabulous, great place for a get together.”

Reviewed 27 Jan 2016

What can I say, we were celebrating my sons 18th birthday, 16 of us from all over, from 4 yrs up to 73, lots of room, so your not all on top of each other, great kitchen, nice and big, huge table every one could get round, it's a lovely place if there's a lot of you, even extra beds in the bunk house, the hot tub was a big hit, also the pool, lovely and clean all over, a big thank you to Mary for being so helpful, showing us around, and being on hand if we needed her. We would definitely stay here again.

“Perfect International Destination for Group of Friends for 2015 RWC”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2015

Myself and seven friends rented the Hafod Lodge for the last week of September as we were visiting the UK for the Rugby World Cup. The house was incredibly spacious for the eight of us (it would be comfortable with so many more people!) and had all of the amenities we could have possibly needed. We had tickets to matches in Cardiff, and the proximity to the city was perfect. Mary was incredibly helpful with setting us up with things we needed before we arrived, including recommending taxi companies, where to order groceries from, etc. Although we could have spent every day lounging in the heated pool or relaxing in the hot tub, we still went out every day as the Lodge is so close to great places. Cardiff is about 15 minutes away, easy to get to by car or taxi and a wonderful place to spend a day exploring the castle or just shopping and drinking. Other days we explored nearby attractions including Caerphilly Castle, the Brecon Beacons national park, and the delightful vineyard that is directly across from the lodge. This was an absolutely wonderful stay and I'm sure there isn't a better place we could have stayed. The layout of the Lodge allows large groups to have great social spaces, enjoy meals and cooking together, and relax in the evenings in the hot tub outside. We will definitely recommend this place to others, as well as try to make it back again ourselves. Tips for others/recommendations for the owners: - The wifi connection is really only available in one room, not a deal breaker but it would be great to have it throughout the Lodge - There is no coffee maker.. I'm not sure if this is as big of an issue for everyone else but we ended up getting our own to bring with us - We didn't realize there wouldn't be an ice maker in the freezer and were without ice for a couple days, it's easy to buy one at the local grocery store, just something we hadn't thought about ahead of time I highly recommend booking the Lodge for groups of all sizes and families or friends, we had an incredible time and can't thank Mary enough for all of her help!

“Great place to stay”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2015

Hafod Lodge is in the ideal location just a couple of miles from J34 of the M4. It is next to a hospital and The Vale Golf Resort so there is some commercial traffic first thing in the morning that will wake up a light sleeper, not too early though. Most of the day it's peaceful and nice and quiet in the evening. The pool and hot tub are lovely, the grounds are well kept and there is more than enough outside seating. The lodge has everything you will need but could do with a little more attention to bring it up to a 5 star rating. Every toilet seat in the lodge was ill fitting, The huge downstairs lodge shower cubicle had nowhere to rest your shower gel so you had to leave it on the floor. There is a sky package but only in the lounge and the wifi is weak and only usable if you are sat in the lthere. Decent wifi is a must these days. People tend to gravitate to the kitchen and a tiny investment would get the sky working on the lovely flat screen in there. The dishwasher bottom tray had a broken wheel which meant that every time you pulled it out it crashed in the hinge gap. Quite a problem when you have the weight of 20 or so plates to lift out. Don't let these minor issues put you off because this is great place, it just needs a few minor tweaks to bring it up to five stars.

“Fantastic weekend away with the guys at a fantastic lodge”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2015

What a great house! Great for partying in the hot tub or heated swimming pool or great for relaxing in the middle of the countryside in peace a quiet. The property managers were great with us and really made us feel welcome when showing us around the property. All the rooms were brilliant and perfect for the 15 of us. The kitchen was great for hosting and really well stocked. The pool and tub were brilliant and we were hardly ever out of them. Perfect location for a group gathering and only a 10 minute taxi ride from Cardiff city centre. Would recommend to all.

“Wedding accommodation & after party!”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2015

We booked the lodge for our wedding at the nearby vineyard to accommodate the large number of friends/family who were staying from the North. We couldn't have asked for a better place! The pool and hot-tub were used well after the wedding celebration finished, with no neighbours you can have a blast in the massive garden until you get too tired to carry on. Full Sky Sports helped the hangovers the following day. Two big BBQs went down a storm, we had around 40 people in the garden comfortably for lunch. I can't speak highly enough of the place and the manager who ensured we had everything we needed. Great place.

“The ideal venue”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2015

I have stayed here both for a short holiday break and, most recently for a business conference. It is beautifully private, yet towns and other facilities are within easy reach. Every need is catered for and a t a very reasonable cost. Can't wait to go again.

“What a unique place to stay”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2014

Our large family group of 16 (8 adults & 8 children) recently stayed at Hafod Lodge for 5 nights. We absolutely loved the character of the house ! We had plenty of room to accommodate everyone and the kids were well entertained with the pool and spa. Mary was extremely helpful with directions to the local amenities (only a short 5 min drive away to a very large supermarket). The house is well located close to Cardiff for sightseeing, but is also a great retreat away from the city. We would recommend Hafod Lodge to anyone seeking a relaxing stay in Wales and hopefully will return in the future.

“Fetching lodge with a plethora of charm”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2014

It was the perfect place for a group of 9 to have a relaxing time whilst making sure to stay up late and socialise in the pool and hot tub into the wee hours of the morning. The house is well stocked and we cooked some amazing meals and made sure to make use of the BBQ too. We definitely recommend it. The lady was lovely and are thinking of coming again maybe next year.
