We stopped for the night on our way North. Hotel in a lovely location with a stunning view to the back. For the price the food and accommodation were fine and breakfast great. A very friendly welcome. I would recommend it. It's quite basic but all you need for a good night's rest.

We stayed overnight after visiting the area, we requested a larger room and found room 3 to be a good size and comfortable, it also had some amazing views. The hotel is situated on the busy main road and does have a small garden and seating area. The hotel does offer evening food which is served in the small restaurant... More

This is a quaint and rather endearing, friendly , family run small hotel in Mid-Wales. Quirkily old-fashioned but this rather cheers me up versus modern hotels. Room 4 was compact, but cosy, and was gloriously south-facing with a magnificent view. Breakfast was OK, and evening meals were substantial, well coooked and good value. Lovely sun-trap beer garden. One or two... More

Not sure what to say. Friendly, but slightly reluctant helpfulness.Prices probably adjusted on booking to reflect perceived pocket depths of visitors. Rooms on 1st floor attractive and spacious, those on 2nd floor small and needing decoration. This split of pleasant and in need of attention is reflected in all areas. We have always enjoyed our stays, finding the George Borrow... More

We stopped here on the off chance of accomodation being available which it was. The staff were friendly, the room was clean but small however the toilet/shower room had that damp smell about it. Meals were good and plenty of choice and bar facilities were good. Price of 75 ounds not over the top but we did stay at many... More

We enjoyed a 4 night stay at this well appointed small hotel in Mid Wales. Our double room was clean and had the most spectacular view (Room 4). The room had a compact en suite with shower which worked efficiently, and there was every amenity including hairdryer. The staff were always cheerful and helpful and it is very obvious that... More
