“Great welcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Stayed for two nights as base for going to the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff for a Wales-Argentina rugby international.
If you're looking for ultra-modern accommodation this is not for you.
But if you want a comfortable place to stay and an excellent breakfast that will keep you going through lunch, read on.
Park Place is a Victorian house and is still something of a work in progress as far as renovation is concerned, so not everything is perfect.
However, despite being on a main road the interior is remarkably quiet and our bedroom was peaceful, providing a good night's sleep.
The family are welcoming, polite and attentive and go the extra mile to help you feel at home.
Breakfasts are substantial - if you want the full works - and very tasty.
Dinner is provided on request though we did not take advantage of this service.
Would certainly stay again and the countryside around Crickhowell is superb.
One major benefit for us at least is that there's not a wind farm to be seen!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the house are away from the main road and very quiet.

On our arrival Maxine greeted us warmly with a lovely cup of tea and welsh cakes whilst we sat relaxing in the lounge. The atmosphere as soon as we arrived was so welcoming and warm. Our double room at the back called the Rose Room was an absolute delight,all decorated in a very subtle victorian fashion, Little things like, boxes of tissues, hand cream, cotton wool, plenty of tea, coffee and hot chocolate was ready for our use, even chocolates on our pillow every night. We had a huge bathroom, with fab shower and bath, again soap, shower and hand cream all ready for our use,(big beautiful bottles too) Although we had no TV due to poor reception, we could use our lap top and we did have a radio for our use. The TV was in the cosy lounge.
Breakfast time, there was a variety of times to come down, The first morning we had a huge Welsh breakfast which set us up for the day, We were always asked if we wanted more, even offered sandwich bags when we had a continental breakfast the following morning so we could take the left overs and make sandwiches. Maxine was always on hand to offer advice on where to go, prices and how far we would travel. She had even written a handout on local eateries and their prices. Prices were expensive, so we ate out in Brecon late afternoon,and just had a snack in our room later. I would seriously advice anyone to visit the Big Pit, its free and such an eye opener.
There is a dry room for any wet gear, which is very handy in this part of the country.
We certainly would stay again, this time for a longer period as there is so much to see and do, and the hospitality was second to none.

Room Tip: Rooms at back overlook a quiet garden, with sheep and chickens, the front is the main road. Also th...

My husband and I stayed here last night as we were in Abergavenny for a friend's wedding and also planned to visit the food festival. Maxine, the owner, greeted us and her friendly and warm welcome was felt throughout our whole stay. While waiting in the lounge, Maxine brought us tea, coffee and welsh cakes (much appreciated). We had the room in the loft (Honeysuckle) which was one of the most charming rooms I've ever stayed in. It had an ensuite and was very clean and cosy. We were also very amused by the "baa-ing" out the window from the sheep in the back garden (there were also chickens and dogs). Breakfast the next morning was well cooked, tasty (we had the Welsh and continental) and portions were very generous. We would definitely recommend the B&B, and would return next time we visit the town.

Room Tip: The car park is just next to the guesthouse.

We stayed at the Park Place for 3 nights over the August Bank Holiday weekend and really enjoyed our stay there
Our room was very clean and comfortable with views over the beautiful countryside surrounding the guest house. The Welsh breakfast was tasty and the portions were generous it set you up for the day. Maxine the owner was very friendly and helpful and when we arrived a pot of coffee and welsh cakes were soon in front of us.
The guest house has ample car parking and it is only a 15-20 minute stroll into Crickhowell.
In all a very nice place to stay and we hope to return in the future

Stayed just 1 night as we were biking the following day and only arrived 7pm ish the night before.

The B&H was ok for out purpose of a crash pad and was nice and clean.

Breakfast was a bit of a fry up in a traditional way, nice sausage but greasy bacon, unhealthy fried bread, with toms and shrooms on the overlooked side. A shame really as can be made so much more healthy these days without the artery atack !

Bed was a single, lob sided and repaired but clean anyway which is the important thing.

Decor very dated sorry to say and the lounge smells of age !

As I say it was fine for what we wanted as lads away mountain biking but that's all. I'd be sad if I was here longer on a holiday.

By the way don't bother with the food in the pub next door ... Awful, boiled chicken type place !!

Stayed here for a night before a friend's wedding, had the perfect welcome from Maxine with tea and welsh cakes and a very comfy night's sleep in the attic room. The best thing about waking up in the morning was the idyllic view over the Welsh countryside and the fab breakfast that was rustled up for us downstairs. Fantastic stay, highly recommended!
