Felt compelled to write a quick review of our stay at The Y Talbot Hotel this weekend. We were looking for a hotel in the middle of the Cambrian Mountains and we found this little gem of a hotel. From the moment we called to enquire about availability we were treated as valued guests, the owner/manager couldn't do enough to... More

A restaurant/pub with rooms. What a lovely place. We stayed two nights in a refurbished room - extremely well appointed with power shower/bath. The food is excellent (try the sea bass) and there are plenty of areas to have a drink from the lively bar to quiet lounge (please though think of lighting the open fire in there!). Offers excellent... More

Had a fabulous time, room was really nice. The bed was fantastic and so comfortable! The meal at the restaurant was the best we,d had in a long time. Bar has a nice selection of real ales and malt whiskies, and the atmosphere was lovely. Also we had a really nice breakfast!

The service is efficient and friendly. We go often, sometimes just for cappuccino which is second to none. There is a good selection of meals and snacks which are always well cooked and hot. The front bars/restaurant areas have a log burner and open fire so always cosy in the winter and when the days are a little chilly. No-one... More

Y Talbot must now be one of the great inns of Wales. I was there on holiday and the accommodation is superb and tasteful. The restaurant has a fine choice of dishes and a well priced wine list. On top of this there are super bar meals and some great guest ales. Altogether a memorable experience ...and I caught some... More

We stumbled into this hotel/restaurant to find somewhere for lunch. Food was not overtly advertised on the outside of the building, just quality beer and fine wines. So it was a real pleasure to find a good a la carte menu at lunchtime, midweek. The décor is very olde world pub broken out into different rooms, so privacy can usually... More

We're delighted that you stumbled on us and look forward to seeing you again. You made a very interesting point about external signage, we'll review this for our programme of winter works. More

Recently come back from a 2 night stay at this hotel whilst attending the Harness Racing in Tregaron, and what a disappointment it turned out to be especially after reading the great reviews on this site. The first issue we had was the poor décor in the old style rooms of the hotel, paint & tiles coming away , shower... More

Whilst we always welcome feedback, both positive and negative I must take issue with most of your comments. The Standard Single room that you stayed has been renovated and refurnished in the last two years and offers an excellent value alternative to our luxurious Superior rooms, on inspection today there is no evidence of tiles coming away or the shower...

We really had no idea of what to expect of our booking at Y Talbot other than a suggestion by a fellow Trip Advisor for a one night stopover here. Well we absolutely LOVED our one night stay, superb! While the town itself is very quiet we really enjoyed it...it was so nice to get off the beaten track and... More

Just spent one night here on my annual ancestry hunt but i will definitely return. The interior of the hotel and the rooms have been very tastefully modernised but retain character at the same time. We had a lovely room overlooking the square (surprisingly quiet) with the most amazing bathroom! We arrived about about 3,30 having not had lunch but... More

Y Talbot, or for those of you who don't speak Welsh, The Talbot (the 'Y' is pronounced 'uh', to rhyme with the, rather than wye). On pulling into the car park at the rear of the hotel, it is immediately apparent that someone has made a substantial financial commitment to the place. The hotel has been extended greatly, the garden... More

The elephant visited Tregaron with a travelling circus in July 1848 and unfortunately passed away after drinking contaminated water from a nearby well and was buried behind Y Talbot, we have left it to rest in peace! Fortunately the water quality is excellent these days but if in doubt stick to the beer. We look forward to welcoming you at... More
