Stayed 1 night early October. Couldn't fault room, view, food or service. Wel lowrth a visit and they deserve the 4 star rating they've just achieved. Paid £90 for double room B&B.

We booked on a Sunday Special Eat & Sleep for £49.99, which included a two course set menu dinner, a double room and full breakfast for 2 people. Which is amazing value, so full marks for value. The Plough is more corporate than boutique but does it all very well. The room was spacious with a good view over the surrounding countryside, the staff were polite, helpful and friendly and the meals were good. Plus points - the Welsh breakfast with cockles and laverbread, quiet and spacious bedroom, good shower and plenty of towels. Minus points - a shower curtain over the bath (could they not have a shower screen?), one main course was only lukewarm and had to go back, cold plates, more attention to dusting.

I was rather intrigued that this hotel has so many top ratings (45 so far). I would describe it more as a motel (from the style of the buildings and situated on the A40) rather than a boutique hotel. However, the view from the rear of the hotel where the rooms are is delightful and the rooms are set far enough from the road that I couldn't hear any traffic at all. The rooms are very nice, extremely well furnished and spotlessly clean. The staff were all very helpful, efficient and friendly. Booking was very efficient online and I got an excellent rate.
I'm afraid that there is one thing I disagree with the other reviewers about and that is the food. We had the set menu for dinner. My husband's pate and steak and chips were fine. I had a tartlet to start with which was just about passable, followed by fish and noodles. The fish was a tiny dry square in breadcrumbs (fish fingers would have been better) and the noodles were overcooked and had obviously been kept warm for some time. There were no vegetables with either of the main courses. The set menu was very cheap (£16 I think) so I guess you get what you pay for.
The breakfast was a good selection but neither of us had anything cooked so I can't comment on that.

On the edge of the Black Mountains, evening drawing on & had been working/driving all day.
Very nearly passed this, it doesn't look fantastic from the road, but it's deceptive.
The place was clean, tidy & busy. The French accents of the waiters were amusing. They've just got a fourth rossette & it's fitting as the food was very, very good.Reasonably priced & don't miss the fantstic views from the back of the Hotel & patio.
I'll definitely be back.

Staff were very helpful with my gluten-free diet (including providing gluten-free rolls and toast from separate toaster).

This is a very high quality hotel and restaurant which belies its unassuming appearance from the road.

We could not find a single fault with any aspect of our stay. The room was spacious and very comfortable, and the restaurant was simply outstanding and is obviously very popular as a destination for local people too. Pre-booking is advised as a result.
