We have stayed here lots of times when visiting family in Machynlleth, always had a very warm welcome from Tina. The rooms are very clean the shower is gleaming. A cuppa on your arrival is very welcome and there are snacks in the dining room for you to buy. Breakfast is fantastic, you really don't need anything else till dinner.... More

Lovely homely b&b. Room bight and airy, proper sky TV. Breakfast very nice. Welcome drinks when we got there were very welcome as it was quite warm. There is no restaurant within walking distance so bear this in mind. The closest town Machynlleth has some nice pubs.

Unaware of Graduation week in Aberyswyth and needing a B&B we made north towards Machynlleth & were pulled in by the £35 ppn sign outside the house . After a superb nights sleep, if this had been one of those 10 in a bed series , I'd have paid more . This was one of the few places that had... More

Third visit to Plas Mawr last month and the high standards are being well maintained. It may only be a three-room B@B but Plas Mawr certainly punches above its weight. You'll find comfort, cleanliness, and a superb welcome from host, Tina. A more than ample breakfast choice will also set up any traveller for the day ahead, discovering the beautiful... More

We stayed here for three nights whilst visiting the Osprey Project. Fabulous food, wonderful proprietors, and a spacious comfortable room. Although it overlooked a busy main road it was quiet at night, would definitely recommend it and use it again.

We secured rooms for our family who came to our daughters wedding nearby. The one twist was that the family members barely spoke any English. Not only had Tina and Dave researched the language to create a Polish Translation of the Breakfast menu but they had learned a few words as well. Anyone who is prepared to go that far... More

Our second birdwatching stay at this amazing B+B. Unbeleivably, it was an even better stay than the last time! Tina and Dave have made this the No 1 Mid Wales B+B. All standards here are the HIGHEST. We would recommend staying at Plas Mawr just for the experience of being totally pampered by people at the top of their game.... More

Everything about our stay was excellent. We had a very warm welcome and the room and en-suite were very clean. Tina could not have been more helpful with regards to our stay and suggestions of where to eat in the evenings. Tina and Dave have worked wonders on the house over the years with their renovations. The breakfast was plentiful... More

Hi Graham & Barbara, I'm glad to note that the efforts we have put into the various renovations have not gone unnoticed. The thing about the wonderful countryside and wildlife in the Dyfi Valley is that it is never the same twice. Already we have the swallows returning, and are looking forward to see if the swifts nest here again... More
