Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed for the third year running at Royal Welsh show week. The accommodation is first class in a lovely old style building. Good parking facilitate at the front. Breakfasts are good and Paul is a friendly helpful host. An excellent stop off place when in the area. Have booked to return for a fourth year.

After a mix up at another hotel, we managed to book in here at short notice. So glad we did. Great location in the town centre and very friendly and helpful host. Parking on site. Breakfast was very good too.

We had such a lovely stay at the Horseshoe. The bed was wonderful, the room was large and comfortable, and everything was spotless. Breakfast was delicious every time. Paul was so kind and thoughtful in helping us figure out where to go and how to get there. Rhayader is wonderful and everyone was so welcoming we didn't want to leave! I can't say enough good things about it! We will definitely be coming back.

The Horseshoe Guesthouse is a B&B in the centre of the town of Rhayader. We stayed in an en suite double which had a comfy bed, good facilities (including Netflix on the TV). Hosts were friendly and helpful and the cooked breakfast was excellent. One reason for choosing Horseshoe Guesthouse is that it has a charger for EVs. This works well.

We stayed at this guest house for 2 nights. The owner was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the local area. Our room was very clean and there was a very good selection of breakfast available. The guesthouse is on a quiet street but within walking distance of the town centre. There is off road parking. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this guest house.

Traditional country guesthouse in a quiet street close to the centre of Rhayader, very well positioned for visiting the Elan Valley. Small but comfortable room with well equipped shower room, excellent breakfast, and friendly and attentive host. Vehicle charging points are a very welcome feature in an area which lacks public facilities. A very good one night stopover

The selling point for this guesthouse is the host. He is very friendly and helpful and appears to be genuinely interested in what we were doing. Everything else is what you would expect, clean, comfortable, and a good choice of breakfasts. Being able to park here was a bonus as well

Hospitable host, made welcome. Off road parking for motorcycles. There is a “shed”, but already in use. Twin bedded room was well decorated, clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was good. Details in the room stated packed lunches and evening meals available by prior arrangement, but we didn’t try this. Great location for touring. Would stay here again.
