Every fall we spend at least a week somewhere in England in B&B's. Three nights with Allison & Julian were enough to put Glan y Dwr easily in our "Top Ten" ever. The combination of very friendly and knowledgeable hosts with a beautiful house and very comfortable/spacious room(Pen y Fan which we chose because of larger bath) was perfect. I... More

We had a wonderful stay with Julian and Alison at Glan y Dwr. The house and our room are beautifully decorated and there was lots of space for my husband and I and our two young children. The beds are very comfy with nice fluffy pillows, perfect for a good nights sleep after a long day of driving. Breakfast was... More

We received a cancellation from the B&B we initially planned to stay at, which at first was slightly annoying but oh, we couldn't have been luckier as otherwise we would have never stayed at this amazing B&B in the lovely town of Crickhowell. Alison agreed for us to stay on a short notice even though they had made plans to... More

Thank you very much for your kind review of your stay with us. I'm glad we were able to offer a room and you were so appreciative of it. We managed to take our granddaughter to Peppa Pig World on the wettest day of the summer, but it was worth it for her! Come again, you'll be very welcome. More

This B&B is really nicely designed and furnished with high quality pieces of furniture and provides ample opportunities to withdraw in the living rooms. The B&B rooms are very clean and quite cosy. We especially appreciated the extremely kind owners who showed a genuine interest in our stories and discussions. In the morning, they gave us very valuable tips and... More

This is our 2nd stay with Alison and Julian and hyacinths fault it. Arrived early and Julian very kindly moved his car so we could park on site and Alison provided the room key whilst we went off for the day which was exceedingly helpful. Room was great as was breakfast and bed was very comfortable. Thanks again for another... More

I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone. Our room, the Sugarloaf, was very clean and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. Alison and Julian are fantastic hosts and did not miss any little detail. As guests that have dietary requirements, they ensured everything, from our breakfast spread to our room snack, met our needs. Alison is a fantastic cook and... More

We were only passing through for one night. But Julian and Alison provided such a warm welcome to their beautiful home that we are already thinking it would be an excellent idea to return for a few days holiday. The rooms are spacious, elegant and spotlessly clean and the breakfast a delight. And there are plenty of good places to... More

We booked two nights in Glan y Dwr B&B for a wedding in May this year and had a highly enjoyable stay in this homely B&B. We booked two rooms, Sugarloaf and Skirrid, both were to an immaculate standard with everything that you would need. Very clean and very spacious rooms, tastefully decorated.
