Stayed at above last weekend with our labrador Flake. Great position, good food and clean but needs tidying. Safety issue no outdoor lighting at rear entrance and there is a 200 ft drop at back of garden just a couple of rails which dogs and children could fall through

Second night of our roadtrip. A little difficult to find out amongst the hills, but once you do the views are stunning. Hotel and room clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. Both the evening meal and breakfast were very good and filling. If you have had a long day you can just relax here, refresh yourself with a drink... More

We were on a Freerein horse riding holiday travelling a section between Devil's Bridge & Tal y bont. We were dripping wet when we stopped here on a very rainy day with our horses. Despite our condition we received a genuine warm welcome. Our wet gear was hung up in the boiler room & some of our clothing was even... More

This is only a two-star hotel, and is VERY old - George Borrow did stay there! - so the rooms have very thick walls and heavy doors (which are rather difficult to negotiate with bags, etc.), and ours, No. 4, was fairly small (given that the ensuite facilities had to be fitted in.) Having said that, the view from the... More

How many hotels can boast, from their Beer Garden, a view down a dramatic 200 foot gorge with a waterfall plunging into a raging river? The George Borrow can, and Hotel Reception is accessed via the Beer Garden where you'll see the gorge with its stunning backdrop of hills for the first time. The hotel was smaller than I'd expected... More

The staff were very friendly and the food extremely tasty and well priced. It was also child friendly as our granddaughter was able to play out in the garden while we were finishing our food inside. My husband chose steak which was cooked to his liking and I had the most tasty pie with lovely pastry and filling. The only... More

A lovely hotel which goes out of its way to accommodate its guests. The room was warm, clean and comfortable. There was a small ensuite also. The views were outstanding. The food is of a high standard and extremely good value.

The location of the hotel is ideal. The scenery is beautiful. Check in was friendly and welcoming. The hotel is rated as 2 star and I wouldn't give more than this. It was clean, but basic. Decor is dated and tired. Our en suite room was in the attic, it was compact and very warm. Bedding is synthetic and pillows... More
