Wife and I stopped over Saturday night having attended a daytime function in town. Parked up mid morning and went to announce arrival through a side door to bar. The duty manager greeted us warmly and offered to check us in early which was great for us. We had booked at £60 b&b but she said they had an offer...

I stayed here for two nights in January. I booked it online and paid £40 per night for bed and breakfast. When I arrived a huge sign on a beam said all our rooms are ensuite and £30 per night. I had paid already and asked the waitress how do I get that deal for another occasion. She didn't know...

Overnight stay, arrived late so no staff available. Key left for us to let ourselves in. Seeing cracks in the walls was not impressive. Rooms basic, don't think the carpets have seen a vacuum in a fair while and the curtain were falling off the rail, but the bed was reasonably comfy, running hot water and the electric shower worked,...

Mostly friendly staff, although the breakfast waitress seemed unwilling to crack a smile or talk. The place is very run down - see photos, very grubby, dusty, sticky and just yukky. The Ladies toilet I found easily enough as it had Ladies written on it in marker pen. The new tiling was lovely, shame about the peeling back flooring in...

Room was basic but nice, and clean, decor a little dated and only an electric shower, but did the job!! Breakfast was billed as full welsh but nothing Welsh about it unless you class deep fried mushrooms as Welsh!! Bed comfortable

We had a really nice stay at this pub/hotel. The hotel is very comfortable and the food is really nice. The place has a real opportunity to be really good. The place needs to be scrubbed up a bit and is in need of redecoration. The place could really make a feature of its history. We overheard an American couple...
