“Charming and friendly”
Reviewed 26 December 2008

I have just stayed at the 4 poster for a weekend and although the weather was terrible this little B&B made up for it to make my stay a really enjoyable and memorable experience.
On arriving I was greeted by Ange and Liz who straight away offered to carry my bags! I have stayed in 5 star hotels where this service has been sadly missed. They were very informative about the area and gave really helpful recommendations of places to eat and where to go. I was amazed to learn that they are actually new to the area!!
The room I stayed in was spotless, I gave never seen such a clean and well kept room. The bed was comfortable and the room was very quiet. The breakfast itself was delicious and I was surprised that as a vegetarian that they had a specific meatfree breakfast that kept me full untill well after lunchtime.
We had arranged to meet friends who were also staying at the 4 Poster and when we came back at night Ange and Liz made us most welcome providing wine glasses so we could sit with our friends in the reception area to have a glass of wine and a chat.
It was also Lovely to meet Lulu th Posh Persian and Woody the Cairn who will come out and meet you on request.
I would thoroughly recommend this charming B&B and intend to return for a longer stay in the New Year

This Guest house is a hidden jewel in the plethora of Hotels, Guest Houses and B&Bs in Llangollen. It is situated on Mill Street, close to the town centre by the river. I have stayed in Llangollen many times before but felt I had to write a review of this lovely charming 16th Century B&B. The building has character inside and out. I stayed in a Four Poster room... an absolute bargain at £55.00 for a night. It was one of the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed in, the bed was comfortable, it had a great hospitality tray, plenty of room for my luggage and a superbly filling cooked breakfast the following morning! I did not have to eat until evening time!
The guest house proprietors Angie and Liz were friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for them, they even helped me when I had to repair a puncture in my bike tyre! Now thats service! They had recently moved to the area,but their local knowledge was excellent!
If you are going to Llangollen, stay here, you will not be disappointed. They have a self catering cottage on site which accept dogs and have ample off road parking and lockable facilities for bikes, canoes etc, What more could a traveller want!

This is a cozy Bed & Breakfast Inn, on the main road of Llangollen (North Wales).

First the caveats. You can reach this place either by bus or by private (rental) car. The closest town with a rental agency is Wrexham. The closest train stations are Ruabon or Chirk. Both have bus service to Llangollen.

Unless you are a driving fanatic or plan to tour outer areas, you really do not need a car. You can hire a private taxi to take you to some of the closer attractions (Valle Crucis Abby ~ £10 round trip), but this weekend getaway location is perfect for those who would rather walk the town (Castell Dinas Brân ~ 2km walk; access to canal boat or train excursions off main road).

The Four Poster Inn proprietors are very friendly. The breakfasts are traditional Welsh - enough to hold you 'til lunch, sometimes beyond.

We stayed in their family unit. The rooms are cozy - what you might expect with a B&B -- not too large, but not so small that there is no place to move around. Bathroom is small also, but again, you're there for a short stay. This unit is excellent for a family of 4 or two couples.

Several good places to eat. Store owners are very friendly.
