We made a last minute decision to get away for a few days and our choice of venue could not have been better. Warm welcome on arrival very good room and wonderful view from bedroom window. Breakfast was good and plentiful. Tina and Dave were helpful with where to eat at night and places to go during day.

I stayed at Plas Mawr whilst attending a two day course in Machynlleth. I could not fault it. There was a warm welcome when I arrived and was impressed with the room and particularly the bathroom. The bed was comfy and I had a great nights sleep. The next morning I had a full Welsh breakfast which was served early... More

Excellent stay , wonderful view from our cosy room . The house was beautiful and really in keeping with its period. Tina was an excellent host and the breakfast was good quality food. Liked the idea of choosing your time and menu for breakfast the night before.

Hi Michelle, glad you liked the house, and the views from your room. Guests are welcome to order from the breakfast menu in the morning, or as you did, pre-order, which is ideal for those who want to make the most of their day. Hope you can return soon, Tina. More

Just as friendly and welcoming as we remembered. Stayed in the smaller (but still ample size) bedroom overlooking the garden. Fell asleep to the sound of owls and awoke refreshed after a sound sleep in very comfy bed . Shower ensuite with toiletries provided and fluffy white towels . Breakfast cooked to order which left us ready to face a... More

It was so nice to read your review, and am glad the owls added to the experience. The bird reserve is now seeing the arrival of summer migrants, and of course the countdown has begun for the arrival of our resident osprey! Look forward to seeing you again soon, Tina. More

Our second stay and everything was just as lovely and Tina just as welcoming as the first time. As mentioned in my first review Plas Mawr is a quirky house and full of character. The renovation has been carried out sympathetically and even the maternal roost of very rare bats has been taken good care of! This time we stayed... More

No complaints at all, just like the other reviews everything was lovely and our host was welcoming and very friendly. We got to use the locked garage for our bikes and when I needed emergency repairs to a missing button on my trousers a needle and thread were quickly provided. We have stayed in many guest houses and hotels but... More

My wife and I were planning to attend a conference in Aberystwyth in August. Having had some bad experiences of hotels in the town (and some good ones) we decided to try somewhere new this year. Plas Mawr was the result. Aren't we glad! Yes, it's on a main road but traffic in this part of the world virtually stops... More

This was our second visit here having stayed last year. So we were totally confident that our stay would be equally as enjoyable. Everything in the house is immaculately clean with gleaming white absorbent Bath Sheets & beautifully ironed sheets. Once again we slept in a back facing room & slept very soundly. My daughter had a front facing room... More
