Better than the Celtic Manor Hotel. Everything was perfect. Tips: Relax and enjoy the property.Couple from Pontypridd - 5th June 2017
Peaceful and the people of South Wales were all so welcoming. As we weren't there on holiday we didn't do much sight seeing but we would recommend Folly Farm for families!Family from Fife - 14th January 2017
