Stayed with my 14 year old son in a twin room which had one double bed and a single. Friendly and welcoming owners. Clean, spacious and comfortable. It also had a large walk-in wardrobe, TV and tea/coffee making facilities. Free WIFI, The three springy chairs where a nice touch. The bathroom was large and had both bath and shower. Shower...

I can't fault the cleanliness of this B&B or the breakfast which was nicely cooked and varied enough, but the welcome we received when we arrived was strange. No one answered the doorbell so we tried the door to find it unlocked. We went in and I called out. A man appeared who said he hadn't answered the bell as...

I chanced upon the Smokey Cot when first visiting Wales in 2011 and was made so welcome by Stuart, Liz, and Greg that whenever I have returned to Wales (in 2013 and 2015) I have made sure that I stayed here again. I have now stayed in 2 of the rooms in the house, and the family room above the...

My daughter and I stayed in the family room above the garage. The room was cold, damp, dusty, and the bed linen was disgusting. We had to put the towels on the bed because you could have not slept on the sheets. We were that cold as we didn't want to cover ourselves up with the dirty blanket so we...

This has to be the best value, friendliest B & B in the area, a family home-cum-mansion, shared with the owners, but in total privacy. One enters a handsome wood-floored hallway with full galleried landing (no stiletto's!). Spacous rooms are off the 1st floor landing, Mine had a perfect, massive walk-in wardrobe, spotless shower/toilet/washbasin, with toiletries. The bed linen was...

Stayed two nights 13-15th March 2015. Spacious, warm twin room, en-suite shower room. Everywhere immaculate. Plenty of free parking, location very peaceful, easy to find and not far from Cardiff. There is a pub (Dynevor Arms) about 1/4 mile away that does good-value evening meals. Pleasant owners, good breakfasts, excellent access to rooms in the day if needed. Just one...

“Judging from our stay, I would imagine all rooms are warm and peaceful, we had a twin room facing the front of the house and it was spacious, with a walk-in wardrobe and modern shower-room. Both were immaculately clean.”
