I like everything about this hotel. Good real ale and home cooked food. Rooms are clean and large in size. Always a warm welcome form the staff. Breakfast freshly cooked and well presented.

Although on a main rod little traffic noise.

Room Tip: EvEN the main roaD is not A Problem.

Good welcome, clean and quiet room and wholesome pub food ( if the menu a bit long !). Plenty of parking if near the road .

Breakfast as good as it gets .

Good value for what is offered . Would stay again if in the area .

Very helpful staff, excellent value and great breakfast in the morning. Room was nice, clean, plenty big enough and we were made to feel very welcome and looked after well by the staff. I would recommend the Aleppo Merchant.

I went here to take part in a rally driving course (Higgins Rally School, absolutely brilliant!) and it is a good, straightforward place to stay. Clean room, good shower, full-on breakfast and excellent value for money. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for 1 night, 2 rooms. Found through booking.com but cheaper direct, £65 a double room with breakfast. Was disappointed when sign said no availability for evening meal, but when we asked a table had been allocated if we required it - nice touch. Both rooms large and reasonably clean, maybe could have done with quick dust over but certainly no problem. Had some problems with tv but did come & sort it. Tea & coffee with biscuits supplied. Meal was superb, excellent value, drinks from bar great value £1.60 for a single spirit 40p for mixer & £2.70 a pint of beer !!!! Asked on evening for what we wanted for breakfast and at what time.
Great nights sleep. Cooked part of breakfast better than many we've had in 3 star hotels!! Cereal & juice basic but plenty tea & coffee.
Will defiantly recommend to family when we have a wedding nearby in the summer.

Just happened across this place whilst staying at a (supposedly) gourmet hotel and restaurant in nearby Llandidloes, and this was by far the best meal of our stay! An unassuming little pub from the outside which belies the treats contained within - of warm friendly staff, superbly cooked excellent value Sunday roasts, with high quality meats, fresh veg and tasty gravy prepared by an expert hand. Vegetarian roasts are available too. The wines are reasonably priced too with a highly quaffable Merlot at £11.95 - served at an appropriately ambient temperature. This family run establishment is well worth a detour in an area of Wales which seems to be a bit of a culinary desert. Go and enjoy!

The Aleppo Merchant is basically a pub with rooms. The staff are very helpful and will go that extra mile to make sure you get a meal if you are, for example, arriving late. The rooms are clean and comfortable, if a little tired in terms of decor. Updated matresses would help some beds. One problem is the plumbing. Some bathrooms are fitted with macerators which sound like a tractor starting up when a loo is flushed. Can disturb guests in rooms nearby. Road noise is also an issue for rooms at the front of the Inn. Despite the Inn's rural location, locals thrash through the village at an alarming speed (several ending up inthe graveyard which is just over the road from the Aleppo). However, the Aleppo is excellent value and I would stay again for a short visit. The food in the restaurant was good country pub fare, and again good value.

Room Tip: Opt for one away from the road. In winter, check if the rads have thermosatic valves. You can be e...
