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.

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.
