Rhedyn Guesthouse

Reviewed May 18, 2014

It's always a bit of lottery choosing somewhere to stay a couple of nights from some pics on a website rather too late at night and in a hurry.

This place is stunning. The room was clean, comfortable and attractive with its own door to the outside. The welcome was friendly. And the dinner (pre-booked) was very, very good both nights. Breakfast did have the old standards, but done superbly with a fruit compote to die for and limitless top-ups

The places I stay in are rarely worth writing about - they're usually unexciting but competent. This one is actually worth going out of one's way to visit and to relax in. Pure undiluted excellence for an accessible price.

We were so pleased that you chose to spend your birthday with us. We had a very good evening together which Ciaran and I enjoyed as much as you!

The best spontaneous, romantic Easter trip ever. The "stables" room was perfect...clean, quiet, comfortable and warm with an amazing shower to wash away the many walks from the day. The "house in the field" is a gorgeous secluded cottage away from the hustle and bustle but within easy driving distance to all the beat locations for walking, canoeing, riding, cycling etc...Muiread and Ciaran were excellent hosts with excellent knowledge of the local areas. All the reviews so far rave about the food...this one will not be the exception. The evening meals and breakfast were simply outstanding. I highly recommend this guest house for a thoroughly relaxing, romantic and revitalising trip. We'll definitely be back again to explore more of the Brecons. Lewis and Rosie

Recently stayed at Rhedyn Guesthouse on our travels through england, ireland, scotland and wales.....what a fabulous place right in the middle of the welsh countryside - Muiread and Ciaran are wonderful hosts. Our room was clean, cosy and beautifully decorated as was the rest of the house..... food was superb and our stay thoroughly enjoyable. Love to go back someday.

My Wife and I have just returned from a supurb weekend with Muiread and Ciarans at their wonderful home.
Where can we start, well the food and hosts was of Michalin Standard.
The Rooms were so cosy and welcoming.
The Location Wonderful, Central but surrounded by wonderful Welsh countryside.
It was our Anniversary and Muiread provided some Excellent Extras such as Flowers,Cava and
even delicious Canapes pre Meal.
I am surprised there are not many more excellent Reviews but can only assume everyone wants to keep it for themselves
Well Ciaran and Muiread the cat is out of the bag!
You are going to have to put up with me returing again and again to sample your wonderful Hospitality.
I have probably missed loads of other great things to say especialy your Wonderful Cooking.
Just go and Treat Yourself!

We've been privileged to enjoy Muiread and Ciaran's hospitality and welcome for the past three years during the Royal Welsh Show .. and we're booked for 2013.

The evening meal is exquisite and always original, served in the dining room with views of garden and those green Welsh hills. The breakfasts are irresistible - particularly Muiread's home made jams The setting - in the middle of a field surrounded by Welsh hills - confirms that you really are away from it all. The rooms and their facilities are excellent. The hosts are very special. Grab a stay while you can.

My girlfriend and I chose to spend Christmas at Rhedyn this year on a recommendation from a friend. It was absolutely wonderful! Muiread and Ciaran are so welcoming, warm and helpful with lots of suggestions should we want to be active. We visited Hay-on-Wye, went to a local cider farm and went on brilliant walks. Our room was beautiful, with lots of lovely thoughtful details like local guides, magazines and great,cute toiletries We still miss the fabulous shower!
Special mention must be made of the food! The food!! Great value for a three course meal but the dishes they served us were seriously high rate restaurant standard! Most meals we had featured Ciaran's homegrown veg and on Christmas morning we had homemade crumpets with homemade jams. We have already booked to return in April and are delighted we have found such a treasure.

It was other hoteliers in the area that recommended us to Rhedyn Guesthouse and after the glorious weekend we spent there we understood why. Muiread and Ciaran are wonderful hosts and Rhedyn is just lovely - spot on! To go out for the day on any number of fantastic walks with outstanding views, come back to 'MasterChef' standard cooking, enjoy a glass or three by the log fire and have a great crack with your hosts and other guests - it doesn't get much better. Just relax...just eat....just lovely....just go!
