I was going to say Billy Zane stayed there but then realised that he isn't as famous as you.    ;D       Those hills?  could it be in the Wrexham area?

The Worthenbury Manor and the Grosvenor Pulford Manor look like nice hotels if you are in that area

No, I am much deeper into Wales at Llangoed Hall between Builth Wells and Brecon. The drive here almost all on the A470 was spectacular, 100 miles or so of beautiful unspoilt countryside and villages.
I was at a yarn fair at the Royal Welsh Showground and today I am going to visit the National Botanic Garden of Wales.
The hotel was owned by Bernard Ashley, husband of Laura Ashley. When he died the family sold it to Von Essen hotels which went bust so I think they had a difficult time then.
Pleased to say the place is still looking fabulous. They have a wonderful private collection of paintings.
The famous guest the waiter was telling me about was Theresa May!

Very nice, DaveR.

Is that the hotel with a few artificial surface flat bowling greens onsite?

That's the one, Bri. They seem to have a lot of bowling tournaments out of season.

Where did you stay?

We stayed a couple of time a few doors down in the Louis Phaethon Beach Club when the kids were younger?

I will always remember walking up to a bar near you to watch a football match and talking to a Mr Trevor Whyatt who informed me he used to be the Conwy Harbour Master.

Small world !!

Just had a little break at the Grosvenor Pulford outside Chester. Great hotel and the Spa there is fantastic - highly recommended.
