Renamed a while ago as the Llety Brynawel Bed and Breakfast, I have had the pleasure of staying here many times in the last 12 months because, simply, it sets the standards for what I expect from a B&B. There are 4 rooms and I usually take the largest at the front of the house - there have been recent... More

Stayed in the super kingsize room at Llety Brynawel. This is a lovely village with great scenery around it. Very comfortable bed (2 singles put together), good sized room and ensuite larger than average. Breakfast and dinner at their restaurant pub The Riverside is excellent. Our host Glynn made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble.

Fabulous welcoming stay at Llety Brynawel. Lovely comfortable en-suite room, splendid breakfast at the Glan yr Afon, (Riverside Restaurant). We chose to eat at the restaurant both evenings as well. Couldn't fault anything, lovely ambiance, staff and plenty of choice on the set and a la carte menu. Really loved the owners' taste in the works of Welsh artists. Hopefully... More

What an "Escape" this is - although Brynawel is the name....hosts Glyn & Corina provide a friendly relaxed service. Rooms are delightful and the food served in their restaurant just a couple of minutes walk away is truly excellent. Glyn cooks a mean breakfast! This was our 2nd visit and I am about to re-book!

Just spent a second visit at this very friendly, welcoming and comfortable house. The owners (Glynn and Corrine) could not be nicer if they tried, Glynn even remembered what car I drove on my last visit. We ate at their Riverside Restaurant and the food was delicious. I had steak which was ' melt in the mouth '. The whole... More

Lovely room. Comfy bed. Have been smartly redecorated since photos taken. Excellent breakfast and welcoming hosts. Great for exploring mid Wales and surroundings. Lovely food at the pub down the road where breakfast is served

I'm always a little nervous booking accommodation from the internet, but we were so pleased with our stay at Brynawel (the current - and more appropriate - name of this lovely B&B). We were in room TRI (Welsh for 'three'), which had a big, comfy bed that made for a very good night's sleep. Brynawel is a substantial old house,... More

It has changed names and hands since we were last there last but the standard has been maintained, if not improved. All rooms are individualy decorated and well cleaned and maintained. The linens are good quality. Breakfast is taken at the Riverside, 5 minutes walk which could be a pain for some if it is raining. Cooked breakfast includes the... More

This was our second visit to Brynawel. The new owners have redecorated the rooms to a very high standard. The rooms are spacious. We were in room 3, lovely high ceilings and original fireplace. We had a shower room with a hot shower, just what was needed after a long day out. We were welcomed by Glyn and Corina and... More
