We’re Food Award Wales Finalists!

We were absolutely thrilled to learn that that Mellington Hall Country House Hotel has been shortlisted for the finals of the 4th Food Awards Wales 2018 in the Hotel Restaurant of the Year – Mid Wales category. To have achieved this just 5 months after taking back control of the hotel is a wonderful tribute […]

In cold weather, it always helps to have the right gear

This wintry weather is getting everyone down but is made bearable at Mellington Hall by the fact that we have the right machinery to clear the snow. Our trusty Volvo went on to fill the wood chip boiler (which heats the Hotel and provides all the hot water) before getting back to other work. Pretty […]

Our 11th room is now ready for booking…..and it’s very luxurious!

With sumptuous bed linen, king size bed, two arm chairs and a flatscreen mounted tv, you may […]

It’s getting better all the time

One of the nicest spaces at Mellington Hall (in a building full of fascinating corners) is the William Morris room, named after the designs by that great artist which adorn the ceiling. As part of our continuing improvements we have just refurnished the room to bring it up to standard. Morris himself urged us to […]

Hats off to our chef Tom

There’s probably only one thing better than tucking into a rib of beef that has been cooked to perfection and that’s seeing the look on the Chef’s face when all his time in the kitchen pays off. Be honest, did you ever see anything as mouth-watering as that beef, or anyone quite as proud as […]

A room with a view. Well, actually, we have a 10 of them.

Most of us live in streets in towns and cities so our view as we look out from our bedroom windows is mostly of cars and houses. That’s why staying at Mellington Hall is so special. Look at these views from two of our bedroom windows. Even in January you can see for miles through […]

A man walks into a bar…

No, this isn’t the start of joke. The man in question is Chris Offa, Sales Manager at Charles Ransford & Son, the sawmill in Bishops’s Castle owned by the same family as own Mellington Hall Hotel. The bar in question is Offa’s Bar in the Hotel, so called because Offa’s Dyke Way runs throught the […]

Speaking of five star ratings….

….we couldn’t help reflect (as we sat by the log fire in a brief lull) that since we took back control of the hotel on 1st November 2017 we have had 18 reviews on tripadvisor. Of those, 17 have given us a five star rating whilst the other gave us four stars. It has, as one reviewer said, […]

A five star rating for Mellington Hall Hotel

We are thrilled to have been awarded a Five Star Hygiene Rating under the Government’s food safety ratings scheme: you can’t get better than this. The award is a great tribute to the teams of people who have been working really hard since we took back control of the hotel less than two months ago but of course […]
