Fabulous hosts, immaculate rooms & domestic accommodation with a breakfast to die for. Perfect location for town and also for the many local walks into the Brecon Beacons. Nothing was too much to ask for. Highly recommended for anybody staying in the area.

Thank you for your very kind words. We enjoyed having your group to stay for the weekend, it gave a house party feel, and made a lovely happy atmosphere. I think you also enjoyed the Walking festival events , so Crickhowell benefited from your visit too! Please come again, you'll be very welcome! More

Work takes me to Crickhowell once or twice a year and for the last three or four years I've stayed at Allison and Julian's wonderful B&B. When you travel around as much as I do you appreciate the high quality of the rooms, service and food on offer here. Quite simply the best B&B I visit (anywhere in the UK).... More

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
