I would like to thank all the staff at The Old Rectory for making my Ladies Evening a night to remember. The food was amazing and the Staff friendly and helpful, I would like to say a particular thanks to John who acted as maitre d’ for the evening function and made it run without a hiccup and Shawn and Sophie who could not do enough for us. I can honestly say that out of the 52 quests that stayed, not one of them had a bad word to say about the accommodation, service or food which made the whole experience very pleasurable. I would not hesitate to recommend The Old Rectory for a meal, a function or a good night’s sleep.

Booked to stay for a long weekend for a surprise for my wife and I for our anniversary.

Enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back again.

Stunning location, if you haven’t been to Crickhowell you don’t know what you’re missing it’s a delight!!

The hotel was old and grand on the outside but clean and modern on the inside and very warm (no saving on the heating bills there!)

The staff are a credit to the owners and are all friendly and attentive!

It is a family run hotel (father, mother, daughter) which adds to the friendly feel
.
We have stayed in lots of similar hotels in hay on wye (20mins up the road) and this was by a mile the best run!

You won’t be disappointed!

Room Tip: we went for the standared double which was great, but next time we are going to go for a room with a bath in it and not just a shower! but the standered double is lovely!

Just back from a fantastic weekend at The Old Rectory - Room (227 ) amazing , jacuzzi and double walk in shower, the most comfortable bed ever!! Breakfast perfect! was given a menu with every possible combination of cooked breakfast - there was also a great healthy option of cereals, breads, fruit yoghurt etc. Food was that good we had dinner in the hotel both nights, once again an amazing menu (if you like ice cream try the licquorice ice cream with Lemon Tart)
A very relaxing weekend and great service from the staff - have to give Vidal a mention, who goes the extra mile to let you know of all the tourist attractions in the area.

Room Tip: 26 & 27 amazing rooms if you can manage the stairs

Just returned from The Old Rectory as part of trip to watch Ireland beat Wales - sorry Donna! Where to start? The reviewer was part of a group of 12 adults who flew into Bristol airport to be met by Shaun (proprietor) who had organised transport between the airport and hotel. On arrival at The Old Rectory we were greeted by Shaun's wife, Donna, and from then on it felt like we were staying in their home. The welcome was warm and inviting and immediately set the tone for the weekend. The location is stunning, set deep in the countryside, with views across the valley from all sides. Our room (Nr 26) was located on the top floor and on waking the following morning the outlook was breathtaking. The room was spotless, spacious and well equipped with everything a visitor would need; large comfortable bed, ironing board, iron, hairdryer, tv and plentiful tea and coffee supplies. The bathroom, which was one of the biggest I have ever seen in a hotel, had a jacuzzi as well as powerful shower. Breakfast was served in the conservatory to the rear of the hotel, overlooking the Par 3 course attached to the Hotel, and here we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast of cold cuts, cereals, fruit juice, fresh fruit and home baked pastries. The cooked breakfast was delicious, with quick friendly service and for those who like to start on a full stomach you will not be disappointed. With Shaun's assistance once more we headed to Cardiff to watch the match and had a great day shopping, eating, drinking and celebrating Ireland's win. What a great City - intend going back to see it properly. Well, if I thought breakfast was good I hadn't experienced dinner. John the Restaurant Manager showed us to our seats and six of us had dinner - five deciding on fillet and one on ribeye - superb choice with selection of sides and drinks. As well as a full varied menu there are daily specials that some of the party indulged in and spoke highly of. Well presented, piping hot and again that word - plentiful. Struggling, we chose various puddings opting for sticky toffee pudding, cheesecake and the lemon tart with liquorice ice cream. Delicious and very moreish. John provided excellent customer service with his easy attitude and when asked about a local tourist attraction was more than knowledgeable. The only drawback of the weekend was the lack of time. We went for a walk on Sunday morning through the local village and it would have been nice to have an extra day to explore a little more but perhaps next time. Overall, we were more than fortunate with the weather, the location, the hospitality, the service, the ambience and of course the match result. Until next time Shaun and Donna - thank you both so much for making our trip so memorable. A

Room Tip: Reviewer had Room 26 - top floor - excellent views to rear and side of hotel - spacious bedroom and massive bathroom. No lift so need to be able to climb a few flights of stairs but worth getting to the top.

I would have no hesitation whatsoever at recommending this excellent hotel. The room we had was lovely, nice (expensive!) furniture, not the usual way too hot room you get in so many hotels these days and the staff were attentive but not overbearing. We (wife and i) were attending a function upstairs at the hotel and requested at around 2am the staff enable a friend to play his guitar and sing a few songs downstairs and they allowed this and made no fuss whatsoever (i don't think we were loud enough to wake guests, at least, i hope not) The breakfast was delicious and the beer tasty. Thanks to all that made our stay so good. Rich & Sue, Manchester.x
