We stayed during the busy period of the Hay book festival, and found The Malt House a very friendly, warm and professional place to stay. Despite being fully booked, the house and grounds were very tidy, and obviously efficiently run. Breakfasts were excellent, with Mike and his team catering for regular, vegetarian and gluten free meals, apparently effortlessly.

We stayed here for 2 nights so we could explore and walk through the Brecon Beacons. The owner was very friendly and helped by discussing our walks. The lounge was lovely with lots of room, books, maps and a great view of of the rear window. The bedroom was ok, beds comfy. We weren't brave enough to take a dip... More

The owner here has clearly modelled himself on Basil Fawlty with his erratic behaviour ranging from telling us we are in the way and complaining about our tea and coffee orders to lying about having run out of milk. Most odd. As we are on the subject of breakfast sadly all 6 of us were in agreement it was very... More

Stayed one night at the Malt House. We were in the area for a friend's wedding. Mike and hid wife are a very warm welcoming couple. Mike showed us to our en suite room located on the first floor, facing the front garden. The bed was very comfortable to sleep on, especially after a long 4hrs drive from London. The... More

10/10! Stayed here for the night as it was a friend's wedding down the road. Mike, the owner, showed us around and to our room. Room was really nice, very clean and generally pleasing with a lovely ensuite bathroom. Downstairs had a lovely living room which he encouraged us to use. We had pretty reliant wifi! Next morning had a... More

Pleasant B&B in a very good location for visiting the Brecon Beacons and waterfall country. We booked two rooms. One was in the main house and had a shared bathroom something we hadn't appreciated when making the booking although this may have been our fault or maybe not clear from Hotels.com. so would be worth checking what you are booking....

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
