The Hotel is easy to find and has a good size car park, the entrance is a tad narrow. Watch out if you have an oversize SUV or similar. The building is showing signs of wear and could do with redecorating inside and out but overall acceptable. The entrance and reception is a bit untidy and detracts somewhat. It would... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this very charming hotel. All the staff were amazingly attentive and welcoming. The décor in the room was very pleasant and the view over the garden was picturesque. Set in a quiet location and very comfortable. The meals were extremely good value for money and the breakfast was plentiful and all ingredients were very... More

I agree with a previous comment, the reception was a mishmash of dresses, albeit beautifully made, and random jewellery and other trinkets for sale, mixed with some nice art. It was a very odd welcome when you first walk in, think just a simple vase of flowers would make it feel more like a reception. However, the staff were so... More

We stayed here recently for one night. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and our room was a good size. This is a country hotel with good views and the normal early birds chorus We had a meal and drinks in the bar which were a good price for a hotel. We ordered cottage pie, chips and peas,... More

We stayed here as a group of friends en route walking across Wales from Knighton to Aberystwyth. Excellent food, good rooms, delightful hosts and amazing location for walkers - recommended! They have a function room which we had exclusive use of - ideal for a group briefing over dinner; good breakfast and packed lunches.

We stayed here about three years ago, and we keen to return, albeit circumstances enforced a longer delay than anticipated. The hotel has not changed, which pleased us. It is a small, comfortable family run hotel, sat in the Elan Valley. Our room was large, comfortable and clean. The hotel has a lounge which we used more than once. The... More

An excellent base from which to explore the beautiful Elan Valley! Very welcoming, friendly service and nice rooms at decent prices. Best of all is the restaurant, we had a fabulous dinner that exceeded all our expectations.

We stayed here for one night. A lovely location even on a wet and windy day! The building is attractive although the decor is very dated. Our rooms were well appointed with a good tea tray and very clean, unfortunately the decoration and bedding is pretty tired and the bed was too firm for our liking. We had dinner in... More

Stayed just the one night. Room was clean, comfortable and warm. The chef / barman / receptionist (multi-tasker!) was friendly and helpful. I've only given 3 stars because, unlike previous reviewers we weren't impressed with the evening meal - perhaps it was an off day as there was only one other guest staying in the hotel. As it was the... More
