Wanted to revisit Wales and the Brecon Beacons area in particular. Research and good reviews suggested we book the Malt House Hotel. Very glad we did. This is large house style hotel set in 2.5 acres of ground. We chose the top floor with a nice view of Welsh hills and garden. Could have had a free upgrade on first... More

We stayed at The Malt House on the basis of the reviews we read and we were not disappointed. We were greeted by Mike at the front door who gave us a warm friendly welcome. We stayed in one of the attic rooms, which for me at 5'7" and my wife 4'10" was not a problem (didn't hit our heads... More

What a fabulous find this B&B is. We were made to feel like part of the family from the moment we arrived. Mike is so friendly and makes your stay very pleasant. A group of us stayed for a friends 40th birthday which involved gorge walking in March, needless to say we arrived back bedraggled, wet & very cold. Mike... More

We have just returned home after another three day stay at this wonderful B&B. Mike, his Wife, and staff cannot do enough for you and you are made to feel very welcome in his home. The breakfast is very filling and a good source of sustenance before a days walking around the hills of Brecon. We brought our own lunch... More

Fantastic place to stay ! Myself and four of my friends stayed in the cottage. It was warm and comfortable and just what we needed after walking and travelling all day. The breakfast was spot on and the pub across the road (The White Hart) was a great place to have a meal and a few pints.

Stayed here for 1 night in Mid November and I was not disappointed. Mike was very helpful, informed and welcoming and we benefited from his local knowledge. The House is lovely although difficult to find in the dark. The room was very comfortable and we had exclusive use of the adjacent bathroom as no other guests were sharing. Lots of... More

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...
