After reading the reviews on here before we went we were not sure exactly what to expect but we had a great time. We spent two nights at the hotel in the Rowan 1 room. Clean and tidy but in need of a little tlc. The four poster bed was really comfortable. On the second evening we ate in the... More

Stayed here for a two night groupon break. We loved our room which was the studio a converted attic, very quirky and unusual. The location was good for the elan valley. We had a lovely cream tea and enjoyed our breakfast. We also decided to eat dinner on both evenings and we enjoyed

Hi I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay at The Brynafon Country House Hotel. The Studio is one of my personal favourites, albeit a little bit of a trek up the stairs. I will also pass on your comments to the chef who is always happy to hear that her food is appreciated. We look forward to seeing you... More

My partner and I booked the hotel through Hotels.com and were unsure what to expect but the photos of the rooms and hotel looked great! We stayed in the Studio room. We requested wine in the room as it was my partner's birthday. We discovered in our room sparking wine (in an ice bucket), complimentary home made chocolate truffles and... More

Hotel in need of refurbishment but our room was quirky, clean and comfortable. However, one evening we were locked out ,having not been given a key to the outside access door to our 'annex'. Neither emergency telephone number was responded to and it was only because the kitchen area of the hotel remained unlocked (presumably inadvertently) that ,eventually we were... More

We stayed for two nights on an online voucher deal and weren't disappointed. It is evident from the beginning that the hotel is in need of a revamp, however the staff are aware of this and had put signs up apologising for any inconvenience during our stay - we had no problems. We stayed in the Rookery and had great... More

4 of us stayed in 2 rooms on a wet and windy weekend but had a great time as e.g. Elan Valley was even more dramatic than usual. Beds were all super comfortable, food was great (especially the bacon at breakfast and my steak) Our thanks to the new owners who honoured our booking, even though they have taken on... More

Lots of work needs doing to this hotel inside and out but with how rude the staff are and their attitudes I don't think people will be returning as I certainly won't be visiting again. Total shame as with the right people this could be a lovely hotel in a lovely location.

Unfortuantely, I am unable to identify any booking at The Brynafon Country House Hotel for you. However, I see from your Facebook account that you live locally, perhaps you would like to call into the hotel to discuss your experience personally with me. More

Our weekend stay at Brynafon was a groupon gift so we weren't sure what to expect. Upon arrival we found the grounds are in need of some work but hopefully will be carried out in warmer weather. We were welcomed by the staff and shown to our room. We had to walk outside to an annex which on first impressions... More

A old and quirky building but kept very clean and tidy by the new owners. Very nice people and very welcoming and accommodating. Room 1 was a reasonable size with a en suite shower/toilet. Bed and sleep was good. Breakfast good but the owner did struggle to serve everyone single handedly. We did not eat/drink in the evenings but walked... More
