My wife and I have just returned from an excellent 3 night stay at Park Place Guest house. Maxine, the owner couldn't do enough - on arrival we were welcomed instantly with a coffee and tea and a smile! She then took us to our room, which was amazing! It was even better than the images on the Internet! It was very quaint, clean and surprisingly spacious. The bed was exceptionally comfortable, but the views from either window were just amazing! Though the guest house was situated on an A road, no lorries travelled past and very few cars! At night,not a sound could be heard - beautiful!!
The breakfast was delightful - all freshly cooked! There was a plentiful amount of food and the staff couldn't do enough for you in the morning! Excellent!!! The evening meals were also excellent to and I would highly recommend the Welsh lamb chops, but the vegetables that accompanied the meal were all fresh and tasty. It was all brought locally and prepared on the day, and best of all - home made!
The location was great, it is so nearby to two great pubs - one down the road (The Vine room) and the other over the bridge (The Bridge Inn). Apologies if the titles of the pubs are not correct, but they are both within a 5 minute walking distance and offer excellent food and real ales! Really worth a visit! To the centre of Crickhowell from Park Place is a short relaxing walk - no more than 10 minutes, but there are some beautiful views, which my wife and I would not have had the pleasure of experiencing if we had stayed elsewhere!
Something worth commenting about town centre locations: My parents stayed at The Bear (apparently the best in Crickhowell), and they were paying twice as much and they were both disappointed! The room was dull and had a hotel feel about it! They said they just felt like another customer! When they visited Park Place, they to were amazed with the quality of the room and views! My wife and I feel that we had a lucky escape as we were going to stay there originally!!!
Overall the guest house was superb and value for money. Maxine, thank you for your superb hospitality and sorry that my mum pinched all the hot chocolate and tea in the basket (something she didn't experience at The Bear) in the room!! We intend to take the children, so they to can experience a truly unforgettable welcome in the hillsides!!
