"An exceptional institution where seriousness and laughter, and camaraderie and solitude, have a vital place"
Times Higher Education
"Gladstone’s library is a remarkable place. A haven for reflection, study and quiet..."
Wales Arts Review
"I have visited the Library on several occasions but this last visit has been beyond what I expected. Without exception every member of staff is excellent and this really adds to the feel of the place. "
"As a working writer, I’ve gone to many places to work…but I have never found anything as appealing as this strange and beautiful institution in Wales"
"Its books and sense of history were a blissful, secular balm...this place is truly special."
I stayed five nights last week with a friend and we were both charmed by it. As a keen Victorian, I was delighted to stay in a John Douglas building brought up to modern standards."
"It's not just a B&B, it’s a peaceful, restorative retreat...It will feel like a privilege."
"Great Place to read, write and relax.
An absolutely perfect place for my needs, great library and facilities, comfy bed and room, great food and good conversations with other guests."
