We visited recently as two couples. Horseshoe is great place to stay. Good location for visiting Rhayader and the kites. The staff were very helpful and obliging. Ample on-site parking. A few good pubs nearby.

We stayed in room 3 (overlooking the front road) and room 5 (stone wall in photos) with a small window over looking the back. Parking on site was fine. We were warmly greeted by our host on arrival who checked we had a dinner reservation for that evening at a local restuarant and happily suggested other options for lunch/drinks during... More

Had an very good experience at the Horseshoe. Paul was very friendly and accommodating. The room had an authentic rugged Welsh cottage feel, and was very clean and perfectly adequate. The breakfast was very good, with plenty of choice and great quality.

I stayed in the ground floor twin room with disabled access and en suite wet room. I'm not a wheelchair user but the room would be very tight to use for someone who is not able to move independently, without the chair. Ideal for someone who uses a walking frame or sticks. The mattress was quite hard for my taste.... More

We stayed here to visit the red kite feeding at Gigrin farm. Paul, the owner is very attentive and the rooms are very pleasant and clean. The breakfast was excellent and there was plenty of everything. We would definitely stay here again if we visit the area.

Having stayed in Rhayader several times, I can confidently state The Horseshoe to be the nicest experience to date. Paul and Laura are excellent hosts and made us feel right at home. Superb breakfast and very comfy rooms.

I was part of a group of friends on a weekend away. We had an excellent dinner on the Friday night. The breakfast was superb and Paul and Laura could not do enough for us. The rooms were nice and the beds very comfortable.

We stayed in this guest house for three nights. Staff were polite and welcoming and the bedroom reasonably comfortable, but a bit cluttered. Disappointing factors were the strict hours imposed for breakfast (7:30 - 9:00), the noise from both the street and neighboring rooms, and the constant "beeping" of the faulty fire alarm that want unfixed for two near-sleepless nights....

Made welcome. Room very good and comfortable - shared shower WC for the single room very good. Breakfast good - excellent coffee. No problem having early breakfast. Wireless internet very good but an open network. Most rooms are en suite but if you are on your own the single room is more than adequate and the bathroom is right next... More

I recently stayed in the Horseshoe for 3 nights with my husband and 2 year old daughter. Having had a terrible experience on our 1st night in Wales (pre-booked accommodation) I arrived on Pauls doorstep early in the morning desperate for a room! With this being Royal Welsh Show week, I was less than optimistic about finding somewhere but as... More
