Me and my girlfriend stayed in the pool house, which was very reasonably priced. Our favourite surprise was the chickens and bees kept at the back of the garden. Mike was brilliant and helpful as was all the other people we came across, the room was great, very clean and a very comfortable bed. A pool at the foot of... More

Only stayed for one night, which was a shame, as Talybont-On-Usk is beautiful. The Malt House itself was also Excellent. Very clean and well kept, as are the grounds. didn't get to use the pool as we didn't have time, but will be staying here again so will next time. The host was very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was very... More

Four of us stayed at the Malt House whilst we competed in the Race the Sun event in Brecon. We all stayed in the pool room (the 4 bed cabin by the pool - the clue's in the name!) and it was great. Comfy bed, good shower and opens out onto the pool and garden. Perfect for us. The owner... More

Fantastic gardens. Beautiful river running the length of the garden. We slept as a four in the bunk house at the end of the pool. (Yes a pool as well). Lovely breakfast as well. Oh and very good value. Spent a very happy evening listening to the river running past just a few yards from my head.

A beautiful, unpretentious house with kind hosts who serve a fabulous breakfast. Talybont on Usk is delightful and perfectly positioned not far from Brecon. The swimming pool at the end of the garden is an incredible bonus.

Booked this place due to its previous reviews and the pictures. Have to say, it lived up to its 'reputation'. Mike and his wife have a wonderful place that is very much a place of comfort and solitude. My partner and I were staying over for a wedding at a local venue and really enjoyed our stay. The room (attic... More

Most charming, inviting, full of character and homely bed and breakfast we've ever been to. Surrounded by stunning Brecon Beacons National Park and the pub just across the road - it is a pefect place. Plenty of choice for breakfast, beautifully presented and tasty. Will definitely return.

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
