The rudest man I've ever met owns this place. Got berated for requesting a receipt and wanting to pay my bar bill for checking out in the morning! I always say: if a place is dirty in the places you can see, imagine what it's like where you can't see!! Seriously, avoid staying here at all costs.

It is what it is a very old Building with lots of history. As the walls are so thick the rooms can feel slightly chilly in the evenings , the decor is dated but in such a small family run business i`m sure it`s difficult to keep up with the Jones`s . It is friendly with good breakfast choices and... More

Weirdest place I've been to in a long time. I'll quote my conversation with the bar man (owner?) "Have you got Fruitshoots for the children?" "I don't do fruitshoots!" "Blackcurrent squash then?" (He pours the drinks) "A sparkling mineral water..." "I don't do sparkling!" "Lime and soda then..." "I don't do soda!" "Erm, coke then?" "I don't do coke!" ...ad... More

We stopped here for 1 night in July. We had read the reviews and was unsure what to expect. Well it ain't as bad as people have made out. The owner and the staff were pleasant and friendly. The food is very good. The rooms are a little small but they are for sleeping in and this is done well... More

Nice hotel, staff and manager. We had an evening meal in the bar area so we could enjoy the open fire. It was a lovely atmosphere and the food was very good and cooked to order. The breakfast was also cooked to order, with tasty sausage and nice bacon. My egg was perfectly cooked. The bedrooms were comfortable and clean.... More

The bar here is quite traditional with an open fire which is very welcome in winter (and sometimes in the summer here too). The beer is reasonably priced and the bar meals are well prepared. The range is the standard pub meals but nicely presented.

We should have been suspicious when we booked this over the internet and we were asked for 50% payment at the time of booking. When we arrived [to stay for two nights] the remainder of the money was demanded before we were shown to our room. It is a misnomer to call this a hotel - it is a public... More

Once again we had a lovely weekend at the Tyn-Y-Groes. Derek was extremely helpful whenever we needed something, and we would recommend this hotel if you're visiting coed y brenin. Breakfast is the perfect size if you're planning on heading out on the bikes right after breakfast, and the 4 meals we had in the evening were also excellent. Room... More

Well if I was to read all these reviews and take on board comments I would not have stayed let's hope most are open minded. Derek and his family are lovely and obviously work very hard. He is a very accommodating man who strives to do his best and make sure your stay is comfortable not sure if some of... More
