We like going to British b & bs, having stayed in about 8 in the last year - every one was a unique and, on the whole, very pleasant stay. We enjoyed our 4 nights at Maenllywd Guest House - for example mid-Wales is a lovely area, being in Machynlleth town suited us (the market on Wednesday is great), we received a warm welcome and had some good breakfast-time chats.
Our bedroom was nicely decorated and comfortable, if a little small. The breakfasts were quite good but nothing more than we expect and didn't match up to several we have had in the last year.
Parts of the guest house need attention. The entrance (at the rear) is really shabby and the woodwork in hallway and on the stairs could do with redecorating. There was a serious plumbing problem in our bathroom that defeated Gareth's efforts to fix it - this was clearly not a new problem. The huge rear garden is wasted - why not a table and chairs and perhaps even some shrubs dotted around.
Taking everthing into account, I believe Maenllwyd Guest House is 'Average' - I am very surprised that 50% of reviewers rate it as 'Excellent'.
