This was our second trip to this specific Hotel. We had unfinished business with Pen-y-fan! The last trip we had a room at the front overlooking the A40. The windows in this Old Hotel are....old... noise is a problem for me. This time however we had a room at the side and barely heard a thing except a very unusual sounding bird first thing - that was rather lovely!.

Friendly, helpful family run hotel offering great food and a decent real ale (I wouldn't choose a hotel for the beer but it certainly makes me happier when it's there!.)

Several people in the bar were repeat visitors which I think proves that this is a good hotel.

Unfortunately we had to leave too early for Breakfast as I had an appointment at Wembley for the Olympic footie but as you might expect with this place, the owner was happy to leave some things out so that we could help ourselves

The Hotel is old, a funny shape and has strange levelled floors....but that just adds to the charm of the place and with the attitude of the family running it - I love it

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper - ask for a room at the back.

Stayed for two nights over the Bank Holiday weekend and had a wonderful time. This B&B has lots of character and our room was very comfortable. The staff were very attentive and friendly, and they really looked after us during our stay. The food was very nice indeed and the breakfast was especially good. One nice touch that I must share; we checked into the B&B an hour or so before the bar opened. I happened to mention that we’d had a rather long drive and that I was looking forward to a nice cold beer later in the bar – such was the service that the owner appeared two minutes later with a lovely cold pint of Old Speckled Hen, which I then enjoyed sprawled out on the rather comfy bed!

Room Tip: We had a superior room and liked having such a large bathroom.

Camped nearby and visited Castle Coaching Inn for dinners on two consecutive evenings. Menu was simple, traditional, and local. Found the food to be of high standard, Would love to come back and stay in the inn next time. A great base for walking and, in my case, fly fishing, in the area.

Found this hotel last year when looking for a replacement for the Kings Head Llandovery after a bad experience there when it was full of noisy navvies, who were rude and kept us awake all night . We were impressed that the landlord remembered that we had been before even though it was only for 2 nights a year ago. The hotel looks in need of a little TLC outside but is comfortable and has excellent food

Room Tip: The stairs to the second floor are steep and narrow so if you have mobility problems ask for first f...

We had a very warm welcome and found the delux double room comfortable and warm, with nice large modern bathroom. Just the ticket for a cold wet weekend.

The food was fantastic! All really good quality. The steak in particular was top notch and the ales selection was great. Breakfast was yummy too- great coffee and nice relaxed service, we felt very much at home.

Also, our room had lovely views, as does the rear patio area- perfect for a pint in the sunshine when the rain subsided :-D

It's an old building and so a little character is to be expected. Do agree with fellow reviewers regarding first impressions; we arrived in very wet stormy weather and it was obvious the building needs a little help with the rainwater goods and paintwork. Don't let it put you off though! A bit of tlc over the summer months will see this get a 5 rating, easy.

Room Tip: The refurb rooms are modern decor; less floral.

A grubby looking building. First impressions from the outside were bad. Poor paintworl and leaking downpipes. Friendly greeting. Room warm. A mish mash of old furniture but a nice size bathroom. Duvet had stains as did cushions. Shame as this spoiled the room. Dreadful walls in need of rendering and wood work given a wipe. Bed was comfy though. Food was ok. Just lacking some attention.
