Bryncelyn Guesthouse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Bryncelyn is a lovely place, as nice on the inside as the charming patio area outside. It was my first visit to Llanwrtyd Wells for the Man v Horse event and I was delighted with how beautiful the area is. Our room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with plenty of tea bags & lots of biscuits. Our bathroom came with plenty of hot water (which friends staying elsewhere in the village were envious of!). Breakfast was delicious; fresh fruit & yoghurt, cereal and toast and the fried breakfast lovely. Lil and her team were friendly and helpful. The whole experience was great and I have already re-booked for next year. Highly recommended.

A lovely, clean ,friendly and comfortable guest house.It was my second stay at Bryncelyn and hope to saty again next year. Lil is lovely, friendly and an excellent host. I stayed with my friend and we shared room 1 which had a double bed and a single bed and an ensuite bathroom. There was always plenty of hot water which is a must after doing the Man v Horse race.Very comfy beds with crisp clean bedding.Breakfast is always freshly prepared when you go down stairs in the morning.Excellent position for the start of the race and the pubs and restaurants. Cant wait for next year.

Lovely B&B, friendly atmosphere. Lil was so kind, open and helpful! The Attic Flat has lots of character and is perfect for families... but surely will be appreciated by anyone! Spotless, warm, cosy... a breakfast that will take you out of bed easily. Great overall experience! Will be back for sure! :)

We stayed here for one night, to be close by to Builth wells for a show the next day. We had a great welcome, and got shown to our rooms. The rooms were spotlessly clean, and stocked up with water tea, coffee etc, and more of the sachets on the landing so that you can help your self, which I thought was a great idea. There's little to do in the town itself, however it's a great place to go for a walk and there's also a few places to go for a bite to eat. The next morning after a good nights sleep, we woke up to yet another lovely welcome and sat for breakfast, with more than enough of a choice from yogurt, cereal, juice etc and of course the deliciously cooked breakfast. Thank you for your great hospitality. We may see you next year!

Thank you for taking the time to leave this lovely review. A lot of guests come and stay with us when visiting the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells as it's a scenic 15 minute drive from us here Llanwrtyd Wells. Hope your family had a good day at the Spring Festival. The weather was beautiful. Hope to see you all again.

As others have written Lil is a very accommodating host. I was working at the Welsh showground and needed an early start in the morning. That was no problem for her and her husband with breakfast on the table at 6.45 am. The bedroom was very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. The only negatives were the non existent Orange phone service and the tv freezing for the same sort of reason.

Thank you for taking the time to post this excellent review. We're happy to cater for early risers.
Most mobile networks are good at the guesthouse - Vodafone network works particularly well - unfortunately you have to go outside for an Orange network signal. We hope to welcome back in the future.

What a fabulous find! We stayed as a family for one night in January when the town of Llanwrtyd was covered with snow. Our rooms were lovely and toasty, extremely well equipped and had plenty of room. En suite bathroom had toiletries, shower cap etc. Tea and coffee making facilities were welcome on such a cold night and further supplies were left out for guests on the landing outside. DVDs and books were also available on the top floor should anyone need one. Lil, the proprietor, was very welcoming and we had a chat about the area after breakfast. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Right in the centre of the town it is a great base for exploring Mid Wales. All in all - an excellent stay

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the front of the building for lovely views
