Firstly may I say I has absolutely no problem with room. It was very clean and spacious. The Pub during the day was very hospitable with a good selection of Beers. However the party I was with had been invited to a social gathering elsewhere in Knighton, thus meaning we enjoyed a drink before and after the event. How anyone... More

Great pub food, attractively presented, enjoyed in a flower filled courtyard. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Knighton is obviously very popular with walkers using the Fosse Way and other distance footpaths. We were passing through on our way to North Wales. Glorious scenery and traffic free roads.

We visited this for a weekend away and not too far from us. The building is simply beautiful with a wonderful old coaching courtyard.

+ Slightly more expensive than other B&Bs but well worth it. Place was a palace with spacious rooms. Big bathroom, and everything clean as well. Kind people too. Restaurant nearby by same owners, also recommended. Good location and value for money. - No downsides.

Difficult to fault any aspect of our stay. The room was lovely, lots of space, clean, nicely decorated and private without being seclusive. Food was also really good. Excellant evening meal, vegetarian options, real ale and a hearty breakfast. A perfect start to day 1 of Offa's Dyke.
