Stayed for one night and had booked a king sized bed!. Very comfortable but room a bit chilly when the radiator went off. Bedding good and attractive, Excellent tasty breakfast and fantastic fresh food. Only took cash and debit cards so the booking.com got their facts wrong! They said credit cards accepted. Excellent value and Rhayader is a lovely town... More

Stayed here for the weekend as a base for some mountain bike riding. Paul (the owner) was very friendly and a keen cyclist himself, so it immediately became clear that this was a great choice for any kind of cycling. The guesthouse is not on the main road so very quiet. There is a great pub just up the road... More

Got a lovely welcome from Paul when I arrived. He was a good, helpful host and cooked a fantastic breakfast! The bed was comfy (if a little creaky) and I slept well. The bathroom I was sharing was clean and right next to my room. There is plenty of parking, it's on gravel but it's quite compact and medium sized... More

Good position with off street parking & for walking to the many Pubs with good food, in Rhayader. Old historical building so don't expect modern facilities. We stayed 4 nights in a very comfortable clean room with ensuite. Enjoyed our stay and Hosts friendly and helpful. Rhayader is an excellent town to put the bags down for a few days... More

My father and I stayed as part of our Wye Valley Walk and received a friendly welcome after a hard day's walk. Room did everything it said on the tin and the Triangle Inn was a great recommendation for our evening meal. Breakfast was a great start to the day and the host family made us feel right at home.

Cycle touring in the Welsh Marches this was the nicest place we stayed. Safe bike storage, welcoming hosts, comfortable room and good breakfast. What more could you ask? Very conveniently situated for Elan Valley

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.
