Lovely spacious accommodation, spotlessly clean and up market and refined in every way from the breakfasts to the attentive hosts. This is the one to beat. Rather like being at home, without having to lift a finger!

We were warmly welcomed into this beautiful home, and shown to our lovely, comfortable room. Crickhowell is a perfect base for walking and exploring the Brecon Beacons and I can't imagine a nicer place to stay! The breakfast was really delicious, and the back of the menu showed where everything came from - mainly local suppliers, many of whom are within yards of the front door. Guests have use of a lovely sitting room and conservatory, and a delightful garden too.

I think my title says it all! Spent five extremely comfortable nights at this exceptional B&B in Crickhowell. Alison and Julian welcomed us into their beautiful home where we were treated more like friends than paying guests. Our room, or should I say suite, overlooked the immaculate garden with views of the surrounding mountains and the bathroom had a wonderful drench shower which was most welcome after a hard days walking. Breakfast was always a pleasure, a variety of fresh fruit juices, fruit, homemade jams, marmalades and granola together with almost any permutation of a cooked breakfast you could think of.
Not only was the 'Bed and Breakfast' 5* but to have the use of a guests' lounge and conservatory made it truly feel like home from home without having all the hard work! Many thanks to Julian and Alison for a very pleasurable and relaxing stay.

Room Tip: Sugarloaf is a deluxe west facing bedroom!

An absolutely wonderful B&B in the lovely little town of Crickhowell. Of the four places we stayed during our 12 day trip around Wales, Glan y Dwr was our favorite accommodation. Beautiful, comfortable, clean; delicious and hearty breakfasts.... Julian and Alison were so nice and gracious. Loved every minute of our stay!!

Crickhowell makes a great base for exploring the Brecon Beacons.

Glan Y Dwr is a very nice place to locate for a tour around southern Wales. The beautiful mountains offer hiking and driving scenery. The coal mining region is just to the south.
The house itself is beautiful, and Alison and Julian are perfect hosts, accommodating all needs and offering excellent advise.
On our arrival, my wife was becoming I'll with bronchitis. Alison acted quickly, getting her in at the local clinic late on a Friday afternoon. Two hours later she had seen a doctor, acquired an antibiotic prescription, and was on the way to recovery. Thank you ever so much, Alison, for the very needed help.
This is a great place to stay a few days. Stay here when you are in this part of Wales.

This was a fantastic B&B we visited for 2 nights when friends were married nearby in Crickhowell. The B&B and its hosts are wonderful. We couldn't have asked for nicer service, cleaner rooms or more comfortable beds. I am picky and want to stay in nice places when I'm paying for a holiday or I'd rather stay at home. Glan y Dwr lived up to this high standard entirely. Spotless, luxurious, good value, upgraded to a larger room, delicious breakfasts and I really enjoyed the Welsh cakes. There was a lovely pot of tea and freshly baked cookies on our arrival, and one morning Alison chatted with us for ages when we wanted to know more about the area, etc. Lovely. Wish were were going back again!

This is our second visit, this time with some friends. Excellent stay again. Spotless, tasteful, warm and welcoming. Thank you for the loveley coffee / tea with cakes and great our breakfast. Great recommendations of places to eat in the evenings (Gliffaes Hotel and The Travellers in Talybont on Usk).
