Booked very much last minute but they were happy to accommodate us and put us in the charming Room 8 which was perfect for our small family. The staff are all wonderful and go the extra mile to make sure your... More

Having spent 3 nights researching the ideal place to stay for my father-in-laws 75th birthday celebration back 2 months ago - we arrive after a 2.5 hour journey to find out that the Hotel had only reserved 1 room for us and not the 2 that were booked and that they had received the deposit for. The Manager was made... More

I was booked into the Brigands for a one night stay, I arrived and walked down to the Inn, unfortunately I slipped on the path way, fell and twisted my ankle and to top it all off I was now covered in mud. I entered the inn and was welcomed by a young man who showed me where to check... More

Whilst on holiday nearby, we visited Brigands for an early evening meal as a family which included 6 adults, 1 teenager and 2 children aged 6 and 2. We were greeted pleasantly by staff and seated in an area which suited us perfectly. We were very impressed by staff offering to bring out the 2 children's meals first and these... More

Stayed here for one night while visiting the Eisteddfod which was being held nearby. Received warm welcome upon arrival and the member of staff kindly resolved problems quickly and in a friendly manner. Problem one was I couldn't get the television to work (there were instructions though - problem was me not television!) and problem two was the pillows. I... More

What a pity we could only stay for a night here. We had booked 2 rooms - spacious, full of character, clean and comfortable. We had a wonderful evening meal and breakfast and the staff were very attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. Diolch yn fawr!

When first entering The Brigands we were greeted by Frank the manager , what a truly nice man and fantastically helpful with a good sense of humour. A totally faultless stay , first class breakfast , lunch and evening meal . A lovely Inn with breathtaking surroundings. The best place I have ever stayed . Highly recommended. Thanks to Frank...

Fab hotel, lots of charm and charector. The staff are brilliant under the watchful eye of Frank along with great food. The views are breath taking, we loved the residents lounge. Good wifi connection in all areas of the hotel which is invaluable when you run your own business. We will definitely be back. Cheers Nigel & Kim
