I've stayed at the Dillwyn a few times recentely. Lovely people, clean rooms, decent beer, and a warm welcome. I had the best meal I've had for 3 weeks the other night when Hayley was cooking, a lamb shank, which was great. Many thanks, will definately stay again. Martin G

Rooms are comfortable, clean beds, carpet in rooms could do be updated but for how long you spend in the room it was fine for us. Bathroom adequate, and towels provided. Pub food available looked good.... More
