If only we had had a room in the main House then I am sure it would have been very good but it must have been full as we had to stay in the holiday cottage which the bedroom was very, very small. No Tv only a shared one in the Lounge with the other bedroom. No Dressing Table in... More

Stayed there with the lads for 1 night after hiking in the Brecons. Very friendly staff. Clean facilities. Amazing gardens and stunning outdoor swimming pool. Would certainly visit again. Beds could be better

Set within beautiful grounds, this B&B really was a lovely place to stay and relax. The bedroom was immaculate, with good tea/coffee making facilities and en-suite. The breakfast was brilliant and catered for our vegetarian and gluten-intolerant dietary requirements without any fuss whatsoever. It was great being able to explore the beautiful garden and relax by the swimming pool. The... More

Lovely clean room, super comfy bed, beautiful garden and pool with helpful owner. Good breakfast with local produce. Would highly recommend and would happily stay again. The only single thing we were disappointed in was the lack of full length mirror (we were there for a wedding).

We stayed two nights at The Malt House. The location is great for exploring the Brecon Beacons, there are four places within walking distance to eat and lovely canal walks. It is a large building nicely decorated throughout with plenty of off road parking. We stayed in one of two 'attic' rooms. The room was quiet and had a lovely... More

Stayed for two days only - weather glorious. Such a pretty and peaceful village location. Nothing was too much trouble for Mike the proprietor and his wife. This is a very warm and friendly establishment and the breakfasts are superb - cooked fresh to order. The pleasant grounds are extensive and there is the added bonus of a lovely outdoor... More

Second time here. Will be coming back next year. Fantastic service, smart and clean B&B with a great breakfast. Lovely room with views over the gardens and swimming pool. Good local places for food and many walking and cycling routes to choose from.

We stayed here with our 8-year old daughter for a couple of nights, and had a wonderful stay. Its a great base for exploring the area, very peaceful location with lovely gardens to explore and great hospitality. Our family room was very clean and comfortable, plenty of room for the three of us to chill out. Would definitely like to... More

My wife and I chose The Malthouse as a base for exploring the Brecon Beacons with our young son during the half-term holidays and it really didn't disappoint. The grounds for the B&B were more akin to that which you might expect at a large country hotel (swimming pool, and very large grounds for my boy to run around) and... More
