We stayed for two nights just before Easter. It was a part of the world we were unfamiliar with but thoroughly enjoyed. The town is small but with everything you'd need. The Guest house was lovely; a gorgeous old building with oak beams and plenty of character. Rosie and Norm were very welcoming and did everything to ensure our stay... More

We have visited this establishment many times before with two previous owners. The latest owners have made many improvements, all to the good and made our stay even better. Breakfast was superb especially the home made bread. Beds were very comfortable and shower was excellant. A perfect weekend stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay at the Old Brick Guest House. The family room with intercommunicating double and twin rooms was perfect for our family as the kids could go to bed earlier without us having to sit in the dark. There is enough space in either room for an extra travel cot if needed. The rooms were comfortable,... More

A lovely house with plenty of character.Friendly welcome from hosts Rosie and Norm. Parking just behind the house was useful. Really comfortable bed and good shower. Breakfast was superb. Homemade bread and marmalade.Locally produced food.I was even given the choice of 2 different types of vegetarian sausage. My husband, not a vegetarian,loved the 'welsh dragon' sausage. As a bonus, the... More

I have been on many walking holidays, with a small group of friends, mainly in central and southern locations, and we have stayed in many B & B establishments and small hotels of varying quality. On our most recent trip, the accommodation was booked by my brother, with two of our group staying at the local pub, and the other... More

We spent a very pleasant night here. Easy to find and park. Comfortable room and excellent breakfast. Our hosts were friendly. Would stay here again. We had an attic room which had a compact en suite, but large enough - the water pressure was good.

Old building so not everything is going to be pristine but even so there could be a bit more done to make guests comfortable. Bedrooms okay but no controllable heating, only one small bath towel per person which is never changed and so remains damp even if not dirty, and the house generally has a fairly musty smell about it...

Rosie R, Owner at Old Brick Guesthouse, responded to this review

Thanks for your comments although I find it hard to believe that you were not able to raise some of your concerns with us during your 3 day stay. Firstly our central heating has been set to 20C for some time now but we do recognise that the Willow room doesn't get the heat that it should probably due to... More

We were keeping strange hours as we swooped in for only about 18 hours total for a friend's wedding. We told them in advance that we would be arriving earlier than the normal check-in; they worked it out for us. We told them we would be leaving a little earlier than expected, and they made us a wonderful breakfast — first... More

We stayed here whilst attending a friends wedding that was happening locally. Nothing was too much trouble, including letting us check in early so we could change for the wedding. We were allocated the Ash Room, which is a family room with a large double bed & two single beds in what is actually two adjoining rooms. This provided us... More

Excellent service from the owner of this b&b Rosie. I called ahead to advise was running late, and she offered to run across the road and book a table with the local pub so I would be able to have something to eat. This was very much appreciated. The room itself was the attic room, twin beds, well laid out... More
