Very clean rooms, excellent and flexible breakfast service. Free wi-fi that works and Freesat multi channel TV are not what you normally expect in this price range. Perfect hosts and offstreet parking too.

I stayed for a week whilst on business but will definately come back with my family!

Maindee is prefect, comfortable and clean with freesat tv, free wifi and lots of parking which is a real bonus when you are here on business.

Breakfast in the mornings was second to none, as they cook everything fresh, you have none of that terrible cold beans and rock hard eggs that you so often find on hotel buffets.

Maindee is a 2 minute walk from the river which is a lovely walk in the evening, and on the other side is the town which has plenty of evening activity and food to keep you entertained.

I managed to have an afternoon off and explored the local damns and red kit feeding centre which was so pretty and interesting i must bring my family back to see it.

Thanks to Lee and Jo for such a friendly and welcoming stay!

Lovely fresh new room and en suite. Delicious breakfast. Free off street parking. Wish we had longer there. Lee and Jo are delightful hosts and nothing asked is too much for them... we wish them all the best for the future too.

I stopped here last minute on business. I needed somewhere comfortable with parking and close to the Showground! There isn't alot of choice in Builth for places to stay, and especially as my last trip i stayed in the Greyhound - which i ve vowed never to stay again...! So, i called into the maindee on a whim and was pleasantly surprised to find a warm welcome from Lee. Both Lee and Jo were very happy to help with what ever i asked for, and Lee cooked a splendid breakfast the following morning. I'd certainly recommend the Maindee to others and wouldnt think twice about staying there again.

We booked this B&B at short notice when we decided to stay overnight at the Hay Festival. We warned them that we would be arriving late, and when we finally got there near midnight we received a friendly and helpful welcome from Lee.
The room was fine - comfortable bed, tea & coffee, small ensuite bathroom though a large locked cupboard (probably housing something important in running of the place) took up some of the floor space. Consequently there wasn't room for bedside table both sides, and there was only one bedside light - this could easily be remedied. Also no hairdryer in the room, though it was readily supplied on request, but often you don't realise that there isn't one till you are dripping!

Breakfast was very good including a large cooked breakfast (different options available on request if you request the night before, but we were too tired to think of those at the time - however what we had was fine).

The best aspect though was the 'can do' friendly and helpful attitude of Jo and Lee. This should be something to find everywhere but unfortunately it isn't, and many visitors to Britain probably go away with a less than positive attitude to British standards of service. Fortunately there are exceptions, and this is one of them.

There are plenty of interesting places to visit in mid-Wales and Maindee B&B a good place to stay to see some of them.

Great location in lovely little village. Jo was very helpful in her recommendations for local places for an evening meal and also helped us in choosing great routes for our bike trips!! We were able to park our motorbike in a lock up garage which was a nice touch too. Rooms were clean and bathroom was newly fitted. Could do with a mirror in the room though. Lee cooked up a full cooked breakfast, which u could choose a large (2 of everything) or small (1) which was good to have the option. Nice selection of yogurts bread and croissants too. Nice stay and jo, thanks for the route advice!!!! They were amazing!!!!!

This a delightful Bed and Breakfast, with owners that are friendly and eager to help. The bedroom was of a very high standard with a really good bathroom. The free WiFi is also of a good bandwidth.

The owners are keen to improve the standard and are clearly putting a lot of effort into this establishment.

Many thanks for an enjoyable stay.
