Stopped here for a work visit to the area, room and ensuite facilities were basic, the reception we received and staff during our stay were spot on and although quoted in other reviews as poor the food was actually much better than I had expected.More

The staff was incredibly kind and provided a charming atmosphere (not to mention excellent sound track) for a tea and a bit of writing time for the wild-camping PhD student (should you be one). Would recommend this hotel to any traveller. Many thanks!

Hi Dave Many thanks for taking the time to review us on Tripadvisor. One or two of our Welsh regulars do fancy themselves as rather Tom Jones-esque and it is all great fun, so we are glad you enjoyed youself. Maybe next time you are...More
