This place is maybe 300 yards down a track on the right, opposite the suzuki car showroom as you drive from Welshpool, maybe a mile-ish to Newtown proper. Met by the couple that own the... More

Beautiful location. Absolutely fantastic hosts. Made me feel very welcome and part of the family. Quiet place and very peaceful. Would highly recommend as business or leisure accommodation. Good breakfast in the morning and very clean rooms.

I went to Newtown several times and my stays in The Gro were really positive. Mik is a great host and really looks after the house and the guests - he even offers to take you to or from the station which shows what a nice guy he is! Make sure to book in advance because there are many people... More

I was very pleased with my stay at Gro Guest house. Breakfast was lovely, location is nice and only short distance from a shops. Also hotel is dog friendly as this was very important to me as I was travelling with a dog. There is land around hotel to walk dog. Very friendly staff. I would stay there again!

The room once reached down a long narrow hall was large contained all the necessities and very clean. The bathroom had signs of mold in the shower area, the windows could do with a cleaning and to top it off the... More

I stayed at this B&B while working nearby on many occasions over the last 2 years. It is a first rate place to stay with large rooms full of character, great breakfasts and it is fantastic value. Mick and his wife are lovely people and I have happy memories of this my nights at The Gro.
