Red Kite B&B
Ranked #12 of 14 Rhayader B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We booked 2 nights as a weekend break here as we were visiting friends in Aberystwyth and did not want to stay there so chose the Red Kite as it was close to the Elan valley and the Red Kite feeding at Gigrin Farm. Reviews were also very favourable on trip advisor. The Red Kite is easy to find as it is on the main road. Very homely, modern, spacious accommodation and a warm welcome from Jill the owner on arrival. This is a beautifully presented property with 4 star facilities. We stayed in room 4 which was a large Bedroom with regular double bed and plenty of power sockets for charging notebooks phones etc. A spacious en suit bath room with modern designer shower and bath tub. There are plenty of towels and a pair of towelling bathrobes in the room. There is a good size LCD TV on the wall. The room also has tea/coffee making facilities and a range of books. There is a large wardrobe with plenty of hangers to unload the suitcases into. A hairdryer is in the room but we did bring one just in case. The location is on a main road but this is not very busy and quite at night with no cars at all. The following morning breakfast was well presented with cereals, orange juice and a full English comprising of egg, bacon, 2 local sausages, mushroom, grilled tomatoes, hash brown, tea or coffee and toast with jam. All presented on white table linen and good quality plates and silverware. At breakfast we met Mark, Jill’s partner, who was very friendly as well and explained details of the surrounding area and the local town facilities.
There is a guest lounge with satellite TV to relax in after a hard day walking or sightseeing. The free Wi-Fi worked well and was fast enough for emails and notebook use. Parking is of the road and the whole area appears rural and safe. The town of Rhayader is a 5 minute drive away and there are plenty of traditional pubs to enjoy dinner at and a pint of local ale.
The Red Kite is highly recommended on trip advisor and I would agree it is a fab place to stay. A big thank you to Jill and Mark for doing such a great job and being so welcoming and friendly. We would definitely stay here again when we return.

This is a great B&B, the owners were really welcoming and could not have been more accommodating. The room was spotlessly clean, with fresh bed linen and towels, bath robes were also provided. The shower was great! The double bed very comfortable. Breakfast was hearty and my request for decaf tea was supplied the next morning. We also had a packed lunch provided which was good. Overall a great value B&B in which we would not hesitate to stay in again.
