After reading reviews on tripadvisor we were expecting a lot more, the room was very basic, the welcome was polite but not the friendly one everyone else seemed to get.The food was nice but we were offered exactly the same set menu each night. Saute potatoes were over cooked crisps and I've had better breaded fish in Wetherspoons.Was it because... More

We booked late, for one night, Saturday 20th June. Only one room left, (Irfon Room) which we were told was very small. It was small, but very comfortable and well equipped with a pretty view over the river and out towards the square. The bathroom was excellent with a full size bath and versatile shower. Dinner was just superb. Really... More

A lovely place located right by the Irfon river. Lovely walks and spectacular scenery just a short drive away. Our hosts Mary Ann and Alan were a joy and made us feel so welcome. The food was outstanding and Alan was on hand with helpful advice about the wine.

Alan was a very convivial host serving the best gin and tonic and... More

We booked a gourmet break which included a very comfortable, well equipped, room, a customised 4 course menu with a flight of wines and full English breakfast. The meal was excellent with the highlights being the beetroot jelly, the... More
