This is a charming and well run hotel set in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons. Nothing was too much trouble with generous -sized breakfasts that would sustain you for a days walking in the amazing scenery that this part of Wales has to offer. The owners are very well informed about all the local attractions about and places of... More

My friend booked this for our ultra marathon run in the Brecon Beacons and as it turned out the race start was literally across the road at the pub. The owner was very welcoming from the start and showed us where everything was that we may need. There were quite a few other runners staying and due to the early... More

I just spent 2 nights in Talybont On Usk, staying at The Malt House and had a lovely stay. I stayed in a twin room, which was warm and cosy with lovely fresh smelling bed linen. Breakfast was excellent, as were the packed lunches that you can order and the owners were welcoming and very accommodating. The surrounding area is... More

We stayed for 2 nights over the weekend as we were running a 47 mile ultra marathon in the Brecon Beacons on the Saturday. We didn't arrive until 10pm on the Friday night but were welcomed like old friends. The property is absolutely beautiful, but cosy and welcoming at the same time. We stayed in one of the top floor...

We had a great stay here for 2 nights to explore the Brecon Beacons. The location is fantastic for this and Talybont-on-Usk is a charming place with everything we needed. There were lovely walks along the canal and a local shop to be able to buy a picnic for our walks. Mike was very welcoming and friendly. Brilliant breakfast with... More

We were so impressed with this beautiful house and gardens, Mike took extra time to show us around the self catering cottage also. Great breakfast, clean comfortable rooms, and added bonus, the beautiful lounge! We will be recommending....

Friendly and cosy large house in a small village in an excellent position to get around the Brecon Beacons. The village has several good pubs that serve good food and drink and all within a few paces. Plenty of parking within the walled garden. Shared the facilities across the hallway but all was good. Excellent choice for breakfast and plenty... More

Pleasant house but we should have been told that the digester system in our room means that there is loud noise in the room at times, incl. during the night! (it seems to happen whenever enough liquid collects in the sink or WC or in the pipes - and NOT only when flushing the WC, which we did not do... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Malt House for 3 nights. It is a beautiful house with quite quirky decor (some might say old fashioned!). The owner was polite and friendly and showed us around on arrival. We stayed in the attic room and, as others have written, the beams are extremely low! We are both fairly tall and... More
