We stayed for 2 nights in our campervan ,and it has to be said it was the best ten pounds we have ever spent,granted there was only a water supply on site, but the hosts could not have done any more to make our stay better We arrived with an empty gas bottle,and having asked Colin if he knew where...

Loved this place! There isn't a lot more you could ask for. The hosts are excellent, the beer is good, the food is well priced (£8/9 for a main) and good quality, and there is a beautiful hill walk directly from the Inn itself (just look in the walking book at the bar for info). I'd definitely recommend and would... More

We stayed here for two nights as we had a wedding nearby at Pentre Mawr House. The room and en suite bathroom were large and very clean. The owners were very accommodating and even waited up for us on the wedding night to open the front door for us, which was a nice touch. Breakfast included a lovely cooked breakfast... More

We stayed here on our second night along The Offa’s dyke Path. The hotel is in a very quiet village and is full of character. The room was very spacious and had a huge en-suite. Great value for money. The pub menu was comprehensive with quite a few reasonably priced curries available. Also the bitter was well kept. The locals... More

We have recently stayed for two nights at this lovely pub. The rooms were beautifully clean with all the amenities and super comfortable beds. Breakfasts were excellent, nicely served and perfectly cooked. Colin and Helen are charming hosts and made us feel very welcome....we shall certainly be back to stay in this little gem.

Travelling along Offa's Dyke and the Golden Lion is a must stop along the way with few B&Bs nearby otherwise. However, it is also a beautiful pub with spacious clean rooms and really helpful staff. I had stupidly not brought a map (just using a travel book) and coming off the OD course led to quite a lot of confusion... More

We spent one night at the Golden Lion Inn which was the closest accommodation to the Offa's Dyke walking path for that night. This Inn is roughly 1.75 miles from the trail but it was worth the descent. A very clean Inn which served good beer and an excellent breakfast. In the morning the Landlord offered to drive us to...
