“Great Welcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

The Old Barn provided a great welcome from Jill and Peter. The breakfast was superb, great bacon and sausage from a local producer. Easily accessible for Cardiff. We hope that we will be able to come back next year.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2011

We stayed here for 4 nights , 13th- 17th June and made the mistake of paying just after arrival. We noticed that the longlife milk curdled after we had a cup of tea(after we had drunk it), got an apology and the milk was replaced. Then we noticed that some of the cereal packets were out of date. That started us looking, a mouldy sandwich (one bite gone) dated as use by in May in the fridge. Freezer door forced off because of ice build up. The frying pan used for one of the cooked breakfasts, placed in the oven and produced again 2 mornings later, unwashed. No thanks. The dish drainer with mould on it, dirty tea towels. We made a mistake and paid the price. We left a note and received and email apology. I should have demanded our money back and left, but we chose this place because Take That were in Cardiff and a British Song Competition was on so no accommodation for miles. It could be nice with a jolly good and consistent clean.
We could not recommend this.If it seems to good to be true, it probably is, beware "the bargain"
