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

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

The standard of the hotel is impeccable. Very clean rooms, comfortable beds, really good food. If you are fans of vegetarian burgers you cannot miss chickpea burger! Also exceptionally competent, friendly and helpful staff. If you are staying in room 3 you might be unlucky to hear some noise of other guests. Not sure whether I should blame thin walls... More

I have stayed at Y Talbot several times now, the latest being 1 midweek night before early meetings the next day, (these were in Lampeter, an easy & very scenic 30 minute drive away). As I was on my own, I booked room 9 on the 2nd floor, overlooking the square. This is smaller than several of the other rooms... More

Spent three nights at this hotel to explore the local countryside. It's very close to Strata Florida, and close enough for a trip to Aberystwyth too. Lovely countryside and friendly people. The staff were a great team, easy to approach, and dealt with our every need. The hotel has been updated to a high standard without losing the feel of... More

Strolling around in Wales we found on a warm afternoon, the Wales rarebite hotel Y Talbot. The warm wellcome was overwelming, what a friendly staff in this mediocre old posthotel. Inside recently renewed and very tastfull refurnished (especially the restaurant) Our room, also renewed, was top, the high pressure shower a party in itself. Having a beer on the terras... More

The hotel has been updated very thoughtfully. The room and en suite bathroom was excellent as was the dining room. The food in the restaurant was also excellent. We like the way the old drovers pub has been kept as it was. It offers an informal contrast to the dining room. The staff were very welcoming and efficient.

The receptionist gave an excellent welcome, he showed me to my room and helped me with my bags. The single room was lovely, many hotels would have put a double bed in. It had an ensuite with an excellent shower, was nicely furnished and decorated. I was thirsty after cycling the Welsh hills so popped down to the bar for... More
