We stayed here for one night and were very disappointed. This place is very shabby, tired and run down despite a so called recent face lift. After check in we were left to find our own way to our room which was clean on the whole although it did smell strongly of something like 'shake and vac' or plug in... More

One small window opened & one small fan was all the ventilation / cooling available. I asked for another fan - none available and no other rooms so... More

We booked this hotel as a last minute booking and confused it with the Élan Valley Hotel which is situated just outside of Rhayader. First impressions was of a tired dated hotel but with a happy bunch of staff who were very welcoming. We stayed for three nights and for all those nights I decided to park my car elsewhere... More

Someone I met at Rhayader on my last visit had recommended this place (I now think they must have meant the Elan Valley). The pub toilets were right next to the first floor room and alternated between strong disinfectant and urine (the latter in the evenings). The rooms at the front are very noisy with smokers directly under the windows... More

Room 8 is very small - view of a rusty shed next door - bathroom is surreal, as it is behind slatted wooden doors. The light switch for the bathroom is well-hidden behind the wardrobe! When we used the shower, the drain blocked, and had to abandon showering. The breakfast was adequate, but no organisation at all, missing cuttlery, sauces,... More

Stayed here on Saturday (28th Apr 2014). Arrived, seemed okay. We were in Room 3, had driven down from South East England as had a race nearby on Sunday. Dinner was so so, nothing special nothing to moan about but the noise was crazy. It kicked off around 10pm and went on until around 1am. I'm not sure if all... More

Booked for a stay with my wife and another couple for just one night bed and breakfast. We were checked in by Clare who was very welcoming and who showed us to our rooms. The rooms themselves are not large but are perfectly adequate and well equiped. The rooms were very clean and bed linnen crisp and properly white. The... More

We live locally and on our way through Rhayader thought we would stop for drink and snack. We were disappointed to see that we were too late for breakfast,but when we went in we received a very friendly welcome and when we asked if there was any chance of a bacon sandwich we were told that would be fine. We... More
