We enjoyed Crickhowell so much last year we booked a return visit with a change of venue. The Dragon is being renovated and the work did not spoil our enjoyment of a lovely old building. From other reviews we were careful to try and not squeak the floorboards but in No 12 it was impossible. Our dog was accommodated in... More

I booked in here because I couldn't find any vacancies in Talybont where I was weekending (even at this time of year, the whole area seemed to be heavily booked). What a lovely surprise. Coming from the car park, I was courteously directed to reception by someone (turned out to be the manager) just exiting the kitchen. His attitude was... More

Like bpblackhawk, I stayed at The Dragon whilst attending the Food Festival. It was my third stay and I was disappointed that we didn't get room 20 (we tried but were bumped for a wheelchair user - fair enough). I was going to give a full review but now feel like I should apologise to bpblackhawk as it looks like... More

We stopped in at the Dragon Inn this weekend on an overnight stay in Crickhowell. When we arrived we were promptly shown to a table and immediately served our drink of choice. I ordered the 8oz Welsh Burger for my main meal and my wife ordered the Beef Stroganoff. The food is prepared and cooked fresh and we only waited... More

I stayed in the Dragon Inn this past weekend with my family while attending the Abergavenny Food Festival. We stayed in the family suite (room 20) and while there were undoubtedly several positives (the size of the suite, the standard of decoration and the food in the restaurant) there were unfortunately a number of negatives as well. This has to... More

bpblackhawk - Once again the Abergavenny food festival was a great success, not only in itself but in attracting a variety of visitors to Crickhowell and the Dragon Inn. On a festival weekend we as a local family business aim to cater for all our guests and I am disappointed that despite the positives in your review your experience was... More

We, 7 friends, have just returned from spending two nights at the Dragon Inn, Crickhowell and we had a wonderful time. The welcome was great; staff were very friendly and efficient, hotel was clean in all areas in spite of the ongoing refurbishments. The food was very good, breakfast and evening meal and very good value for money. The staff... More

The food was delicious, the lamb chops and the monkfish are to be recommended! We had to wait a little while for our mains but they were very busy and had a party of 20 in... More

We needed an overnight stop with meal, in this part of Wales and this hotel fitted the bill. A tiny car park behind the hotel, immediate attention by pleasant , though busy, manager. Shown to No 1 room newly decorated. Two singles pushed together made a vast double. Smart new bathroom and shower in the bath. A very good evening... More

We've been to the Dragon quite a few times over 15 years, (mainly due to its excellent location) with a variety of experiences. Our latest visit last week points to it being on the up again. Some recent refurbs in the dining area are really good and the food was really superb, both in the evening and at breakfast. There... More

Stayed on a Saturday night whilst attending a wedding at The Manor, we found the room to be very clean, very comfortable and very welcoming with everything you could need. Alas we didn't really spend much time at the inn but would love to come back one day to stay at a more leisurely pace. I did think for the... More

Hello, Many Thanks for your review and I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. Re: the breakfast, our menu states that the prices shown for the cooked breakfast are for non residents and as a guest you could have had a full breakfast or similar included in your room rate. Please accept my apologies that obviously this was not... More
