We really enjoyed our stay at Plas Mawr. Good location right next to ynys hir bird reserve, and near the osprey sanctuary. very welcoming, professional hosts who produced a great breakfast with lots of choice. Good attention to detail- all the books, maps, snacks, games provided. This makes the difference between a good and a great B and B.

Came to this neck of the woods for business and needed a B+B for 4 days, Plas Mawr was just down the road from my work. The house is right on the main road and my room faced towards it but I found it quiet and not a problem at all. I arrived at 8pm, Dave greeted me and welcomed... More

This is our 3rd stay at this lovely guest house. Very high standards. Cosy and relaxed atmosphere, you are made to feel most welcome. Great position to visit Ynis Hir as it situated just in front of the reserve. You are able to walk to the reserve. I can fully recommend a stay here and breakfasts are amazing.

We stayed here to visit the Dyfi Osprey Project (amongst other places) which is just a few miles down the road. Without doubt, an excellent place to stay. Very comfortable, fabulous food (and lots of it !!) and a very friendly welcome from Tina & Dave. Not our first visit, and hopefully not our last.

We decided to stay at Plas Mawr as were keen to visit relatives nearby and also go to the RSPB reserve at Ynys Hir as well as the local Wildlife Trust reserve, to see ospreys. It is an interesting old house of great character, which has been sympathetically updated and very comfortably furnished. Each bedroom has TV, free WiFi, en... More

Thank you for your kind words, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We are aware that some drivers do not always stick to the 40mph speed limit, parking is free, and we are always willing to assist guests when required. We look forward to seeing you next time you are visiting your family. Tina More

Totally recommend this fantastic little B&B! Perfectly located by Ynis Hir Rspb & with Machynlleth easily accessible too. We ate at No. 21 which was really yummy food. Booking is required as it gets quite busy! A visit to the Osprey Project is a must too! :-) Thanks Tina & Dave! We'll be back!

We had such a lovely stay at Plas Mawr. Tina and Dave are so welcoming and friendly, and we felt very well looked after. Very comfortable rooms, we had the best night's sleep we'd had in a long time! Highly recommended!

A friendly welcome, a comfy bed and an excellent breakfast - what more can one want? Parking for one car per room alongside the property. A very comfortable sitting room is available for guest use, with TV and some books and leaflets.

This is an excellent B&B with every guest made to feel very welcome. Nothing has been overlooked and the property is in first class condition, spotlessly clean throughout. With a comfortable double bed, an en-suite shower room and a flat screen TV in the room there wasn't anything missing. Breakfast was particularly good.
