We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The grounds are beautiful and breakfast was delicious. Our 7 year old loved the pool and chickens. We could hear the rushing of the river in the house. I found the room charming in its simplicity and our hosts were incredibly friendly and welcoming. I would love to stay here again.

My husband, 14-year old son, and I stayed for two nights at The Malt House, and while the room itself (the attic room) was cramped, it was clean, quiet, and had a lovely view of the back garden. But the three main reasons I give this modest guest house a "very good" rating are 1) the incredibly kind and friendly... More

Visiting Brecon in summer to attend two friends' wedding at Buckland Hall, a short distance away, i looked at local B&Bs for my accommodation. Recommended by two friends that had stayed the last but one New Years Eve, I opted for the Malt House. Located opposite The White Hart Inn and Bunkhouse, the Malt House is a classic property with...

The buildings is lovely and so are the extensive grounds (outdoor swimming pool), with free parking. I was slightly taken aback when the proprietor asked about the "purpose of our visit" when completing our registration. I felt it was none of his business. However, he was welcoming and friendly enough apart from that. Unfortunately we had one of the second-floor... More

Whilst in Wales on business I stayed one night at The Malt House in Talybont-on-Usk. This is a beautiful setting and a stunning 7 bedroom property with 2 acres of grounds, an outdoor swimming pool, a separate holiday let cottage and the river running right past the side of the property. I arrived at dusk and the house was illuminated... More

Mike is a great and attentive host. He is very clam and flexible with us. Breakfast is plenty full with various choices of eggs, toasts and cereals. Poached eggs are really nice but a bit overcooked. The room is even bigger than in the pictures and the lounge is well decorated with antique stuffs. If you wanna walk your food... More

We stayed at the Malthouse last week. The BNB is well located and easy to find. We were greeted well by Mike the owner. Breakfast was amazing with great variety and of a high standard. We stayed at the pool house (triple occupancy) which is why we were so unhappy. The room is away from the main house so you... More

Thank you, Maria, for your review. With regard to the Pool House toilet which is of a caravan type with a 19 litre cassette. Regrettably I found when reviewing matters after Maria's stay that her family had not listened to the instructions on its use and had overfilled the cassette. This type of toilet is sold very widely for situations... More

I was the first member of our cycling club to arrive at the Malt-house . It has a very impressive entrance hall and I thought that this accommodation looked very promising indeed.
