Found this hidden gem via the MrandMrsSmith.com website. The hotel is exquisitely designed with forensic attention to detail and the service is outstanding. Each room has a distinctive theme and no expense has been spared in the design. Highly recommend sampling the restaurant also, the food is exceptional. The staff are also first class. It's a place you will talk...

We booked a room at The New White Lion for the night of our wedding and it did not disappoint. It was a beautiful space, thoughtfully and stylishly decorated and the staff were exceptionally friendly. They even left us a bottle of fizz with their congratulations (which we sadly forgot to take with us)!

Great service even before we arrived - we were a complicated group, i was not sure how many of us would be staying as we had non committal teenagers and a frail grandfather - nothing was too much trouble and we had total flexibility on the reservation and taxis were all booked in advance on our behalf. This is not...

Stayed here as a couple, booked at very short notice and explained we'd be late for dinner but nothing was an issue. When we arrived we were greeted by name and shown to our room, it was beautifully decorated and spotless. The dinner was excellent and there was plenty of it, breakfast was the same. Had a very comfortable night...

All you could wish for in a boutique b&b. Lovely afternoon tea on arrival, extremely comfortable and attractive room. We were there for a party locally as were all the other guests that night so Sylvia booked us all a cab, we enjoyed a drink from the honesty bar before we left and when we returned. It was like staying...

Second time we've been lucky enough to enjoy the wonderful hospitality of Dave and the lovely Diane. One of the most friendly and relaxed places we've stayed - beautifully designed and with locally sourced food that is out of this world (try the chorizo and prawns..). Great walking in the Brecons right on the doorstep, and then settling down in...

This is one of the best hotels/inns I have ever stayed in. The hosts were fun and engaging, the food (lunch and dinner) was scrumptious, and the accommodations were fabulous (clean, roomy, comfortable). I especially liked the honesty bar in the lounge. I would recommend it to one and all, friend and foe.

My partner booked one night at this little gem of a hotel. The place is pretty, quirky, friendly and full of character. The surrounding area isn't great (with a used tyre business right behind the property) but nonetheless, it does not impact of the beauty that is inside. The tea and coffee on arrival was great and meant we relaxed,...
