Spent 3 nights at the Malt House in a twin room overlooking the front garden with shared bathroom. The owner, Mike, very friendly, helpful and good standard of breakfast provided. The house is well situated for cycling or walking along canal, Taff trail etc. Brecon 7 miles. Beautiful scenery and only 2.5 hrs from London. Recommend the White Hart opposite... More

Now and again you stumble across somewhere that is special. This weekend, my wife and I found that special somewhere. Located in the Brecon Beacons, just East of the town of Brecon on the way to Abergavenny in Mid Wales, UK, is a wonderful village called Talybont-on-Usk. It is only a small town, but it is blessed with lovely people,... More

Beautiful surroundings, fantastic property, brilliant hosts! I can't say any more than that. We arrived to glorious sunshine and a very welcoming host. There are a host of walks right on the doorstep and a number of great eateries and places to grab drinks. The B&B itself had a lovely homely feel and was exemplary in appearance. Well worth a...

Headed to Talybont for a weekend of mountain running. The location of the Malt House was just right and on my first evening I met a fellow runner who was also staying there. My room was large with a very comfortable bed. The free Wi-Fi was appreciated and the bathroom was well appointed, although anyone over 6ft tall would have... More

We very much enjoyed our short stay at The Malthouse. The staff were very attentive and friendly, the substantial breakfast was excellent, and the B+B itself is perfectly situated, surrounded by stunning countryside and an ideal base for exploring the Brecon Beacons. The B+B is spotlessly clean, and every effort was made to ensure that we felt at home. Recommended.

We enjoyed an excellent stay at the Malt House. The room was warm, cosy and clean. The shower was powerful. The breakfast was substantial and delicious. There is a very comfortable sitting room/lounge with a selection of board games and DVDs. We also watched the 6 nations rugby on the TV. On the last day our car broke down, and... More

We found the double room that we booked to be spacious and comfortable. The bed was comfortable and we had a restful night's sleep. The noise in the bedroom if you flushed the toilet in the bathroom was quite loud as the pipes ran the length of the room. I know it cannot be helped but it was a bit... More

My Wife and I returned for a second stay at this beautiful family home for a new year break for two nights after a hectic Christmas. As before, the service and welcome were warm with the host (Mike) making us feel very welcome in his home. The room (No 3) was comfortable, spacious and with the most relaxing bed resulting... More

Working in the area and needing a place to stay after being outside in the cold winds, this ticketed all the boxes and more! Was greeted by the owner who was very friendly and welcoming, we were shown around the ground floor and told we could use all the facilities/come and go at our will (lounge very welcoming and comfy,...
