Spent a lovely couple of days in The Mews. Great to be able to book a self catering cottage just for a couple of nights during Summer season. Lovely walks nearby and the Kite a Feeding Centre is definitely worth s visit.

Great value for money (£60) excellent service. They had thought of everything, we had a bag each full of breakfast (oats, croissants, cereal bar & orange juice) room was very clean! Gorgeous surroundings, great food just 2 minutes away. Highly recommended.

A building full history having been a work house. We stayed in the loft house room above the old stable.Fantastic amount of space and very clean. Great food and very friendly. Huge car park and well off the road.

We were 3 couples and all had brilliant quirky bedrooms with great facilities. The owners and staff were very friendly and efficient. The Elan Valley is great to explore and the Red Kite feeding station next door is an amazing experience, Unfortunately the hotel is being turned into self catering units, but I am sure it will still be a...

Some reviewers were very unkind about this hotel just because it needs renovation - which is currently well in hand. The important questions to me about any hotel are: Are the staff friendly? Is the room and bed comfortable? Is the bathroom clean? Is it quiet at night? Is the food good? Is there free WiFi in the room? And... More

Our arrival at 3pm coincided with the feeding of the red kites at the neighbouring Gigrin Farm, so we had a spectacular view of the amazing aerodynamics of these birds. The hotel looked beautiful cloaked in ivy of great autumn reds and golds. It is an old building, a former workhouse with many quirky features. The staff here work hard... More
