5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Wow if all B & B's were like this people wouldn't go abroad.
Hosts, wonderful and welcoming.
Room with Spa bath ensuite, spotless and decadent.
Breakfast, fantastic start to the day in a lovely room.
Would use again.

Room Tip: Our room was at the front with a spa bath, lovely decor and quiet. Very comfortable bed.

We stayed her one night on our mini road trip around the UK and wished it was for longer. Jill and Mark were the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them as they bend over backwards to make our stay perfect.

When we arrived we were greeted by Gill as she was a long lost friend and immediately makes you feel very welcome. After a while we fancied making use of the beautiful spa bath in our room but unfortunately we couldn't get the water hot. After speaking to Gill, she couldn't apologise enough and in a few moment, had Mark on the case and within minutes, all was fixed.

Gill recommended a pub in town to eat and we were certainly not disappointed. After a beautiful nights sleep in the gorgeous bed, we went down for breakfast which was amazing. Plenty to eat and prepared perfectly. We sat in the window, watching three baby squirrels playing in the tree.

There is plenty to see and do in this area so make sure you call Gill and Mark for a stay as you certainly won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: We had room 4 which was perfect for us. Honestly couldn't find anything of concern.

My wife and I have just returned from a lovely 2 night stay at the fantastic Red Kite B&B. Hosts Jill and Mark are absolutely wonderful and couldnt do enough for us to make sure we had a great stay. We were greeted on arrival and given details of the B&B and also some information about the local area, where to eat,visit etc. The place is immaculate, absolutely spotless. They clearly take a lot of pride in the Red Kite. The room was again, spotlessly clean, spacious and the robes were a welcome addition with the towels, my wife certainly enjoyed wrapping up in one after a long soak in the enormous bath. The bathroom was massive, with a large shower as well as the bath. Breakfast was in keeping with the rest of the B&B, fantastic! A selection of cereals to begin with and then we had a full cooked breakfast. Good quality ingredients, well cooked and just the right size portion wise and served in a lovely bright room with full length windows and beautifully set tables.

All in all we were sorry to be leaving to head home and we will definitely return. Very highly recommended.

We booked at the last minute to get away for the weekend and we were very pleased to find such a gem! Very welcoming, lovely house and rooms with great service at breakfast. Jill and Mark were very friendly and we'd stay again on our next visit to the Elan Valley.

Sometimes when you need to get away you may choose to stay in a large hotel, so you can just blend in. The thought of spending time in a smaller place can seem daunting for some. This is not the case here, Jill and Mark are brilliant, so friendly, you could not wish for better hosts, you are put at ease right from the start.

The whole place is spotless, and decorated to a very high standard, its a joy to stay here. I have been though a seriously rough time recently & needed to get away I am so glad I found this gem.

The Red Kite is surrounded by some of the best countryside I have ever seen, and full of rare wildlife too, we visited Gigrin Farm which is a Red Kite feeding station which is a wonderful place. Jill & Mark pointed out lots of other places to visit locally so we will be back to explore.

The Red Kite is our bolt hole now, and the Prozac are in the bin, as we plan our next visit. If you are feeling stressed,don't bother your doctor ring Jill & Mark. You wont regret it.

Room Tip: All 3 are simply perfect.

Wow we stayed one night here in a fabulous room with spa bath, it was spotless,warm and comfortable.Our hosts Jill and Mark were lovely and friendly and helpful we could not have asked for more, the breakfast was delicious too, my husband and I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: For added luxury choose the double room with spa bath
