We stayed here twice, as a base for doing the Wye Valley walk. We couldn't have found a better place. Cooked breakfast got full marks from all of us, on the one night we ate in, Paul cooked us an excellent meal, and the small wine list is good value too. Rooms aren't big but they're comfortable (check on facilities,...

A nice clean hotel with an incredibly friendly welcome. We really enjoyed the three nights we stayed here and Paul cooked us a lovely meal on one of the nights. Loads of pubs to eat out if you want. It's well located for mountain biking in the Elan Valley and there's bike storage available.

The first of 3 nights in 3 different hotels across Wales. This one was always going to be a short stop, with a late evening arrival followed by an early start before breakfast. A good size room with wet-room. Helpful host. The town seemed pleasant with a large number of pubs serving food and friendly locals. We were in town...

We stayed at the Horseshoe for two nights having booked by phone speaking to Paul who was really friendly. On our arrival, we were given a room which was overlooking the front of the building but this was no problem as the road is so quiet. Our room was not the largest but was comfortably furnished and very clean. This...

We stayed here for six nights and were made welcome by Paul. Room was ok but quite dark as the building was old but the size was adequate. TV signal was poor so viewing was very limited. No ITV Toilet was noisy due to Saniflow. There were tables and chairs outside which is a nice touch and there was secure...

Thank you for coming to stay. I am glad you enjoyed your visit. You are right saniflows are more noisy than a normal toilet, that's why I have the newest quietest model but there is no getting away from their use when you have such an old building. I hope that the character of the place shines through as a...
