The hotel is housed in a very old building dating from the 16th Century, so yes, the floorboards creak a bit! However our room was very comfortable, although it could do with a bit of a refresh (the carpet was a bit threadbare under the window for example). It was spotless, though, as was the good sized, modern bathroom. It was a lovely surprise to find a large flat screen TV with Freeview, too many hotels just put a small TV in the room.
We were very impressed with the food. The breakfasts were some of the best we have ever had in a hotel, and the evening meals were extremely tasty and very well presented - top marks for the bladed beef! It was nice to see real ale was available, which most hotels seem to find too much bother. All the staff we encountered were excellent, and Presteigne is a lovely little town with an interesting church, beautiful scenery and some very friendly locals!
Apart from the carpet, the only things preventing us from giving 5 out of 5 are the fact that the bar can close early if it is quiet, the heating in the room was difficult to get right (but then it is an old building) and the fact that the heated towel rail caught me on the rear and my other half on the arm, due to its position in the bathroom. The bedsie light switch also required a big stretch to reach.
These are only little points and could be considered nit picking but if put right the hotel would be fantastic insted of just being very good.
