The owners are super helpful and friendly. The bed rooms are superb and the breakfast is perfectly indulgent. A great bed-n-breakfast experience in Crickhowell. The parking spaces were very handy. The location is also at the heart of the village, so it's easy to get everywhere by foot. We'll definitely be back.

We picked this B&B based upon the reviews. It not only lived up to expectations but exceeded them in every category. The room was wonderful, the food great and the way the house is decorated was worth the stay. The hosts were fantastic. I stayed in Crickhowell because my great-grandfather was born there. Allison directed me to the town's archives... More

A very warm welcome, beautiful rooms throughout, super breakfast and service. All in all, couldn't have been better. Will definitely go back when I am in the area again. Ideally placed in Crickhowell, only 2 mins walk from the High Street, very easy to find with excellent private parking.

We could not have wished for a more friendly, warm welcome! This was such a perfect place to stay. Alison and Julian's attention to every detail and comfort would be very hard to surpass.

Everything was amazing......the house, the bedrooms, the breakfast and the yummy homemade cakes with a cup of tea, even the weather! The service could not be faulted and so friendly. Local information available if at a loss of what to do. Crickhowell has fabulous eateries and many scenic walks thank you so much for a lovely time, see you soon
