A nice clean hotel with an incredibly friendly welcome. We really enjoyed the three nights we stayed here and Paul cooked us a lovely meal on one of the nights. Loads of pubs to eat out if you want. It's well located for mountain biking in the Elan Valley and there's bike storage available.

Greeted by Paul on arrival for my one night stay. Had a single room. Good size and very clean. Plenty of pubs locally to eat at. Breakfast hot and fresh. Very cosy hotel in a picturesque part of Wales. Thanks Paul the mountain road was great.

The first of 3 nights in 3 different hotels across Wales. This one was always going to be a short stop, with a late evening arrival followed by an early start before breakfast. A good size room with wet-room. Helpful host. The town seemed pleasant with a large number of pubs serving food and friendly locals. We were in town... More

We stayed at the Horseshoe for two nights having booked by phone speaking to Paul who was really friendly. On our arrival, we were given a room which was overlooking the front of the building but this was no problem as the road is so quiet. Our room was not the largest but was comfortably furnished and very clean. This... More

First time in Rhayader and four of us stayed for a weekend. Paul is a welcoming and helpful host. Rooms were of different shapes and sizes but all were well furnished, clean and fine for us and breakfast was just right.

We stayed here for six nights and were made welcome by Paul. Room was ok but quite dark as the building was old but the size was adequate. TV signal was poor so viewing was very limited. No ITV Toilet was noisy due to Saniflow. There were tables and chairs outside which is a nice touch and there was secure... More

Thank you for coming to stay. I am glad you enjoyed your visit. You are right saniflows are more noisy than a normal toilet, that's why I have the newest quietest model but there is no getting away from their use when you have such an old building. I hope that the character of the place shines through as a... More

Greeted by Paul the owner in a very pleasant natural manner and assured that our motorcycle would be secure in the parking area (very sensitive at the moment as only 3 weeks old!). Provided with a key to the room and outside door then shown to our room which was number 3 upstairs. Very pleasant room with nice en-suite only... More
