My partner and myself stayed here last weekend and had a fantastic two nights! The owner had previously been extremely helpful over the phone when we phoned up with an enquiry and to but an extra nights stay, we only wish we had booked an even longer stay! The room we stayed in was lovely and breakfast the next morning... More

At first sight a very clean, smart, well maintained house with a lovely garden and swimming pool. It could have a slightly larger sign outside; we drove straight past it. Breakfast was fine though not exceptional and with a good range of choice. Having said that though, we were taken aback when a guest asked for an omelette and was... More

We spent 3 nights at the Malt House in a room with double bed and ensuite shower, sink & loo. Mike, the owner was a nice guy, happy to chat without being intrusive. The location is really good with the river running by, the White Hart pub and bunk house across the road, the Swan Inn (twice local CAMRA pub... More

Stayed here last week for our anniversary weekend and had a lovely time at this goldmine of a B&B. It's a great place to unwind and just relax. Our room was beautiful, very clean and home from home. The staff that we saw were very lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was amazing with a choice of all... More

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
