“An exquisite stay courtesy of friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

Our recent stay at the "Bell Country Inn" was most enjoyable and comfortable. As a large group, we were impressed by the stylish decor and hospitality of the owners. The food was wonderful and the rooms were beautifully decorated and offered a terrific night's sleep! Alongside the breathtaking surroundings, I would not hesitate in recommending this wonderful establishment to others interested in staying. Well worth it!

We stayed 3 nights in a modern comfortable room with the largest en suite bathroom ever.
Nothing was too much trouble for the charming hosts. The breakfast selection amazing and all perfectly cooked. Restaurant good and obviously popular with the locals. What a joy to find such a gem.

The Bell Inn is the perfect alternative to the tired Victorian Hotels in Llandrindod. It is small, friendly and spotlessly clean. The staff are charming and the atmosphere in the bar/restaurant is perfect for couples and families alike.
Really great.

We were in town for a wedding and the hotel were really helpful - letting us check in early so that we could be at the church on time & letting us have a late key so we could come back after the hotel had shut up for the night.

The room was big, clean, bright and modern & the bed very, very confortable. I prefer the sheet, fleece blanket and cover all to a duvet. Warm, cosy and much more hygenic than a duvet! We only wish we had had more time to spend snoozing!

Next time we will make a proper stay of it - and trust me, there will be a next time!

I stayed here a couple of weeks a go for 2 nights, wanting a change from the hotel I had been 'placed' in previously (pretty bad). All arrangements were dealt with efficiently by phone prior to my visit and I found everything to be just as expected on arrival. The staff were very friendly and helpful, despite arriving just before end of service in the evening.

My room was very comfortable (No 8 a twin), all as the review above, and so nice to have a selection of herb teas (not just fruit teas). Bathroom lovely, clean & modern, although it would be nice to have a slightly larger towel! A measure of a good place to stay is that the shower is as good as home and it certainly measured up here.

Breakfast was very good and efficient, coffee good. Not more to say really except that I have rebooked for my next trip down to this neck of the woods in a couple of weeks. It almost felt like home-from-home!

I used to stay at this Inn before it was refurbished so was interested to see how this had been accomplished and whether it warrented to increase in prices. From my first contact to make the booking, right through our stay and departure I found the service very good and felt it was worth the increase in price. The family who run this were charming and helpful throughout our stay

The refurbishment is very stylish - lots of wood and modern art - which makes the Inn feel warm, welcoming but light and spacious. The bedroom (no 2, a single) was good with all the usual - flat screen tv, hair dryer, selection of water, fruit teas etc. The bathroom was modern with a good shower. My only comment is that I would have expected a duvet in a newly refurbished room - those brown blankets are very old fashioned and unnecessary these days!

We'd booked a table in the dining room for an evening meal but having seen the bar menu decided this was better for the vegan in our party. We had a number of different food requirements in our party which were written down carefully by the watress but not always carried through by the kitchen staff (cheese on a crouton in the vegan soup - needed to be returned) but the food was tasty and well presented. Despite being busy we were kept informed by the waiting staff about the length of time each course would take to arrive - good communication which prevents frustration.

Breakfast included the usual selection - we were asked what time we might be eating so that they were parpared as the rooms were all booked.

This was agood experience and I'd recommend the rooms and restaurant - a great alternative to the Metropole which until now has had the monopoly in Llandrindod. An additional bonus for parents staying here is that the daughter of the family is a registered childminder and offers a baby sitting service - so you can enjoy the food with peace of mind!
