This is a proper B&B where we were treated like old friends.The facilities were spotless and the food was excellent.There really are Kingfishers on the river! If you are looking for a base that is handy for Aberglasney and the National Botanic Garden,you couldn't do better than stay here.

I booked the rooms for my family based on the reviews read. Steve is an excellent host, went out of his way to accommodate us, nothing was a problem. The rooms were clean and airy. The breakfast was excellent. Went out of his way for my two grandsons even had child plates. Ideally situated for visiting the area.

Ty Castell came highly recommended by other reviwers, but the reality was it really was that good. Steve Anderson the proprietor met us and showed us the room. It was clean, modern with all the facilities you expect, plenty of tea and coffee. Breakfast was excellent and Steve the most helpful owner I've come across and it was value for... More

Stayed here last night as on a course in the area. I have to say this is a fantastic value B and B. It's clean, Steve very welcoming. Nice clean room, very quiet. Off road parking, near the centre. Infact I am going to suggest to my manager to recommend this to the contractors who come on the course.

A relatively plain room; place was a little hard to find, but had ample parking. Walked past old church down into town and the castle, with pubs along the way. Breakfast was good. Price was right. Host was very helpful with a minor car problem. Had nice conversations with other guests.

Stayed one night only but would have been happy to stay more. Steve (owner) very welcoming and helpful. Cheap price for a clean, warm and comfortable stay. Really good breakfast. Can't beat this for value for money. Will definitely stay again if in the area.

Unable to find accommodation in Cardiff for the rugby world cup, we chose a B&B in Caerphilly instead. Turned out to be perfect for us - great value accommodation moments from the train station (20mins to Cardiff). Steve couldn't be a more welcoming and accommodating host, serving up a massive breakfast and being really flexible on check in and check... More

I need to correct the reference to grading moving from 2* to 3* , when the website and notices actually say 4* to 3*. It is graded 4* (Guest House category) until April 2014. The room referred to has a wet room for regulation disability access, so there is more steam and condensation. 'Musty' is a rather a derogatory term... More

A cheerful genuine welcome from Steve. This with reliable fast wifi and off road parking have been rare in our travels. Good hot shower, spotless newly decorated and fitted out bathroom. Bed was comfortable and breakfast lovely. This would have to be the best value accommodation in 10 days travel in southern UK. We prefer this uncluttered and unpretentious type... More
