I am slightly disappointed as a local visitor that after all the refurbishment the floor still looks and seems sticky . Tables remain with crumbs on them and the place smells of the toilets and other unpleasant aromas . Other (cheaper and less luxurious places) locally are cleaner . Please sort out these issues .

Recently taken over by The Bulldog Group and refurbished to a high standard. It's great to see this lovely old hotel which was once the town house for the Earls of Powis busy and bustling. Good menu, friendly staff, nice furnishings in the public areas. We had dishes from the tasting tapas menu which were really good. Great coffee too.... More

Lovely hotel, clean and comfortable. Very helpful porter and staff. Rooms clean and furnishings nice. Its in a lovely spot and Welshpool is definitely worth a visit. This hotel is a good place to stay as a base to explore the area.

Staff were lovely. All were Friendly and helpful. Food was fine although with a menu as big as the one on offer i was dismayed by the vegetarian options in the mains section. My choice was salad or one pasta dish!!! Had welsh rarebit as a starter -however this was actually mushrooms on toast - very nice but NO cheese.

Stayed for the weekend in June for the air show, hotel was clean and bed was comfy, staff were very helpful and the food was lovely. We arrived late and starving and requested a table for dinner, we were quickly accommodated and made to feel very welcome. There was live music in the bar as well which was very good.... More

Nicely decorated pub with a nice atmosphere. Tastefull decor and relaxing ambiance. Exposed beams add to the charm. Food was lovley though a little pricey. Staff were friendly and helpful. Liked the books that were available to browse. Seperate areas to eat and drink which afforded some quiet private areas which was nice. Shame there's not much in Welshpool itself... More

Only stayed for one night but found the staff very friendly and helpful, and would go back and stay longer next time we need to be in this area. I was traveling with eldery ladies and the staff carried their bags and helped them to their room. It was refreshing to find such lovely service. The Dinner and breakfast was... More

Welcomed with a warm friendly smile, the reception and the main rooms offered us promised a good stay. Our room however was on the small side and a little dated, it also faced the main road so was noisy. Yes the room had tea and coffee making facilities as well as a TV, but no wifi as apparently BT had... More
