We parked up and David in his chef's overall comes out to greet us. David makes all the difference, his approachable nature and sense of humour immediately puts you at ease. We stayed a couple of nights as we were booked in at Phil Price's Rally school which was an hours drive away. The New White Lion is a very... More

I stayed two nights at the New White Lion while fishing on the Towy. You know you are somewhere special the moment you walk in - everyone of David's team introduces themselves and you are on first-name terms for the rest of your stay. My room, I think the smallest, was easily big enough for me and probably for a... More

We stayed here for couple of nights whilst attending the Hay Festival. Hay is only 30 miles away and everything nearer was full or had trebled their prices, so it was by a happy accident that we found ourselves here. The welcome was warm and genuine, the rooms delightful and the food was delicious. The honesty bar in the lounge... More

A lovely small hotel that you won't be disappointed with. Very friendly owner and team who made us feel super welcome straight away. Room was gorgeous, romantic and well appointed. Food excellent. What more do you want?! Stay here (and try the granola).

From Singapore to Sydney and from Tobago to Toronto, we've stayed in many hotels both near and far. Apart from one or two - in Moscow and in Scotland, in case you're interested - we'd have no hesitation in going back because no significant disappointments spring to mind. Okay, it may have rained and the other guests were not all... More

After a long walk in the Brecon Becons the New White Lion is the perfect place to stay, comfortable rooms, superb food, delightful lounge and wonderful honesty bar with a great selection of gins. I could go on but what more can I add to the many wonderful reviews already posted? Stay here you won't be disappointed

We stayed for two nights and loved it. Really friendly owners who make you feel at home and relaxed from as soon as you arrive. We stayed in the smaller room (Twm Sion Cati) and it was clean, comfortable and quiet. Not a huge amount of space for luggage (which was fine for us as we were only two nights)... More

We spent 2 nights at the New White Lion and went there based on recommendations of a good friend. We were extremely pleased with the accommodations, the warmth of our reception there, the food, everything! We had the "Physicians of Myddfai" room, which is a tasteful combination of the old architecture with modern fixtures making it comfortable and cozy. The... More

Where to start ? From the time my wife and I walked through the doors until the moment we left NOTHING was too much trouble, Dave and his team ensured we need do no more than sit back, relax and enjoy our time with them. Freshly baked scones and hot coffee were gratefully accepted after a long walk in the... More

Through a random series of events involving our daughter winning a Sensible Dave Granola competition (created by Dave the owner of The New White Lion), we have just had the most amazing mini break in this beautiful hotel. We felt so at home and relaxed that it seemed to last a week. Dave is the most accommodating and generous host... More
