Second visit to this B7B, very clean with well equipped rooms, good shower and toiletries supplied. The host is a very welcoming and friendly guy who is happy to help and give you tips. Breakfast was good with both cereal fruit and a good hot breakfast to set you up for a day on the bikes. Good value for money... More

I'm so glad I read the reviews as we were not disappointed. We stayed because we were viewing properties for sale in the local area. The owners were so kind and friendly and really made us feel at home. Our room was spotless; modern and very quiet, overlooking hills to one side and town on the other. Plenty of free... More

Stylish, homely, gorgeous place to stay when exploring Rhayader. Paul, the host, could not be more welcoming and helpful, and the rooms are beautifully furnished. We have stayed in the attic room twice, which has the added benefit of a second, twin room off the main room, perfect if you are travelling with children. The sitting room is very cosy,... More

We took our mum and our teenage daughter so needed extra rooms. Were given a suite in the attic (two bedrooms and a bathroom) plus another room directly beneath. All were very comfortable and well supplied. Guests also have access to a large lounge so we were able to spend our evenings playing games and socialising. The breakfasts were gorgeous,... More

Paul, the landlord could not have been more friendly and helpful. Good room with all you'd expect. The breakfast was great. Well cooked and hearty. Very well placed if travelling up or down central Wales. The wifi was a bit hit and miss but this was not a major issue

We love this place! Very comfortable and clean, couldn't be more relaxed and welcoming. Paul the owner is so friendly and obliging and he cooks a great breakfast! Also this is one of the most dog friendly places we've ever stayed. There are some good pubs within easy walking distance who do good pub fare with excellent beers. We intend... More

A lovely dog friendly guesthouse in a central location. Good hearty breakfast to start off the day included in the price. My room was very reasonably priced and my dog was welcomed. There is a small amount of off road parking but plenty of street parking is also available. The lovely river walks were close by as is Gigrin Farm... More

Stayed for one night and had booked a king sized bed!. Very comfortable but room a bit chilly when the radiator went off. Bedding good and attractive, Excellent tasty breakfast and fantastic fresh food. Only took cash and debit cards so the booking.com got their facts wrong! They said credit cards accepted. Excellent value and Rhayader is a lovely town... More

Stayed here for the weekend as a base for some mountain bike riding. Paul (the owner) was very friendly and a keen cyclist himself, so it immediately became clear that this was a great choice for any kind of cycling. The guesthouse is not on the main road so very quiet. There is a great pub just up the road... More
