I've been staying at the Raven Inn for a night after hiking Offas Dyke path. All staff members were super friendly, check-in was efficient and fast, the room was really spacious and clean. The food and drinks in the pub have a fair price and are absolutely delicious. I can only recommend to stay at the Raven Inn, it's worth... More

Room was great - clean, spacious & well decorated but the toiletries in the bathroom need improving, a couple of liquid soap bottles is too downmarket. The main issue is the restaurant which is the only place to eat for miles. The menu & specials board was vast in the number of choices and apart from chips everything must be... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your impressions of your stay at The Raven a couple of weeks ago and for giving us 4 out of 5. We’ll definitely look again at our provision of toiletries, though no-one has mentioned this before. As for the menu choices these have been increased in number this summer due to popular... More

Stayed here when walking Offa's Dyke. Such a nice place. The rooms were clean and comfortable and perfectly adequate for making drinks and preparing breakfast and snacks. The staff, both in the pub and in the shop a few yards away, were so friendly and helpful. The food at the pub was really nice too.

We had two meals here during our stay at Gweryd Lakes. Where do I start? We were allowed to take our two dogs (through to the designated area for four-legged customers) so that was a bonus. The staff were helpful and cheerful and provided quick,efficient service. This is a brilliant community-run pub with volunteer staff. Love the place! The food... More

We stayed in the 'King studio' for one night and were delighted with the spacious room and comfortable bed. The inn and the small shop nearby are run by the community of this small Welsh village and it is clear that they are doing their best to make a success of it. Thank you Laura, the room was great.

We stayed in two of the three rooms, and found them very comfortable, and cosy, although it snowed one morning. Dog friendly too. Overlooks the parish church in centre of the village, just a mile or so from Offas Dyke and Clwydian hills. We ate in the pub a couple of times and food was great, good choice and well... More
