Bit disappointed to be honest. No green veg. Tired choice of dessert. Was expecting a lot more for the price. Been to lots of places and they are far better value for money. The food was nice just expected more when you are charging that much.

Meal advertised at £32.50 per head. Was shocked that vat was added to this and priced wines on wine menu. Very disappointed by what I view as underhand costing of food. I have NEVER had VAT added to advertised prices like this. The meal actually cost £32.50 plus 10% service+ 20%vat making it over £40 per head. The 10% I was aware of but not the VAT. Very disrespectful to customers.

Great value for money. Lovely food however needed to wait for gravy jugs to be refilled on several occasions, also waiting staff not as attentive to the food replenishment at Christmas. However a great afternoon for all of our party, thank you very much.

Celtic manor was lovely and you get treated with such respect, first time I have every visited the Celtic manor been told so much about it booked me and my wife to stay away for Saturday night for her birthday, was all good up to the restaurant the food that was served was horrible ate about 1 plate of food then about 20 minutes later went up to the room and was being sick for hours and the wife was up all night being sick, not sure what it was that made me be sick but the food quality was not up to my standards as I thought it’s a lovely hotel resort and to have that poor food was disappointing I’m not sure if I will be going back anytime soon.

I went to the Olive tree with my husband as it was his birthday and was very disappointed with our food the Yorkshire puddings were so hard and when I mentioned to one of the staff they just said ok I also tried one of the ask in dishes but not impressed quite tasteless. Won't be having food there again.

Attentiveness was poor we sat with empty drinks for the majority of the meal. Seemed to place attention upon mature couples as apposed to family tables.Made to feel like a nuisance. Food however was to a good standard and the morning breakfast host very friendly with our 1 year old.

An outstanding array of excellent food with a wide variety of traditional British, Welsh, Asian and Italian menu's. Custodio Fernandez (Table Service) and Bethan (Guest Reception) were especially attentive and courteous, remembering us from previous visits. All staff are attentive in all aspects of caring for diners.

Disappointed to see the lack of gluten free menu choices. Asked for some GF bread to go with the soup for my starter, took until I had finished my main course to arrive! (and no - the restaurant wasn't busy) That said when I asked about some GF dessert, the chef prepared a small plate for me. Had I not asked, the only option available was fruit salad - very unappealing when looking at what was available for gluten eaters. I had let the restaurant know about my allergy when booking the table but no one was aware. Perhaps notes should be put on the reservation list, that way the little touches of bread etc could be ready at hand?

We had a wonderful stay, the food in the olive tree was excellent with a wide variety of choices from different countries that we could sample. However we both felt better could have been done with the cheese selection to promote Welsh cheeses at their finest sadly it fell short on this occasion.

Simon, our waiter, was excellent - attentive, polite and helpful throughout. An excellent meal - we opted for the beef as a Sunday roast option for main and it, along with the accompanying veg, was extremely tasty. Compliments to the chefs.

The food wasn't bad but was not at all what I would expect from a hotel like the Celtic, it was average at best. The service was again just ok.
