“A gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

We've always managed to get a couple of nights away somewhere to celebrate our wedding anniversary, but this year we had childcare issues that meant we could only find one free night. I'm so glad we chose Ardwyn House! The setting is gorgeous, overlooking beautiful countryside (and Llanwrtyd Wells can genuinely be described as "away from it all"!) The house is beautiful, Art Nouveau style throughout, but with everything to make it comfortable as well. I've not yet decided whether the best thing about our room was the beauty of the furniture or the fabulously comfortable Egyptian cotton bedding, the like of which I have never slept on. The tea and coffee in the room were FairTrade, a lovely touch (and a very good selection of teas as well). Breakfast the next morning included fresh fruit salad, very good kippers, lovely coffee... I am running out of superlatives here, which is a shame because Roger's Mixed Fruit Marmalade deserves any superlatives you can think of.
All in all, hugely recommended. We will be back!

Customer service, comfort and attention to detail make this a fantastic B&B to stay in the heart of Wales. A beautiful house, which you are made immediately to feel at ease in, and lovely light rooms. Quality food and bedding plus generous and friendly hosts make this a treat as well as a throughly pleasant experience. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: I had a room with a bath which gave me a MASSIVE bathroom!

We stayed here as a family last weekend. Our hosts could have not been more obliging. We felt like house guests rather than residents. Our children were well catered for with toys and even were allowed to interact with their own children which made for an excellent relaxing break. We would recommend very highly for all ages. Nothing was too much trouble. Absolutely excellent in every way.

Room Tip: State your preference as whether you prefer shower or bath.

We initially picked this B&B as we were travelling by train and it's only around 100 yards from the station. As soon as I saw the website I wanted to stay there. The house is beautiful being completely furnished in Art Nouveau style. The owners Roger and Katie are lovely and such good hosts. Roger seems to love making cakes and they are available each day with a good pot of tea or coffee on your return from your walk or exploration. We are vegetarian and Roger had also made vegetarian sausages for our breakfast. They were very tasty. The rooms are very comfortable. A nice touch was the duvet. It was one of those double layer three season types, which Roger split down for us so we could just have the lighter one on the bed. We've stayed at some great B&Bs in our time, but this one is definitely the best!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great! Just decide whether you prefer a roll top bath or a shower.

Great house with evening relaxing rooms, double room was well equipped, very comfortable bed, nice shower, and lovely views. Breakfast excellent, and a very welcoming family.
Our only regret is we couldn't stay for longer.

Highly recommended

What a lovely B&B! I have totally enjoyed my stay at this very well looked after property. Was made extremely welcome by its owner Roger. Homemade cookies and a pot of coffee was made for me on my arrival.

My room was spacious and lovely. Huge free-standing bath. Plenty of hot water. Nice toiletries.

This place is amazing and spotlessly clean. Great value.

Fantastic sleep at night. Ever so dark and quiet. Just as I like it.

My breakfast was better than in some five star hotels. Cooked on order by Roger. Best poached eggs ever!

I would recommend this place to anyone without any hesitation.

Room Tip: All rooms are very good. Great views. Excellent bath.
