“Fantastic weekend away”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

What a beautiful place! My husband and I went for a weekend getaway and we had a fabulous time. The hosts, Johnny and Sue, made us feel so welcome and at home that we wished we could stay longer. Clean airy room with super comfy bed and the breakfast was outstanding. Already planning a trio back.

A most welcoming stay in a wonderful location. Big comfortable bed; very clean rooms; amazing views; farm animals; delicious breakfast...a home from home. What more can we say but thank you Johnny and Sue.

Pretty place. Our room was clean and the breakfast was really good (and really big!). The couple who own and run the place were very friendly and normal. Johnny is very welcoming and helped make our two nights there very enjoyable. This was our first trip to this part of Wales but I'm sure that we will be back.

Back again for a great visit, a relaxing and very comfortable place to spend a few days, the best B&B beds I have ever slept in and the breakfast gets better each time, lovely owners in Sue and Johnny, made us feel so welcome as always, can only highly recommend it as a must if your going to stay in the area and prefer to be out of the town.

The Draen provides an excellent B&B with welcoming hosts spotless rooms and a breakfast second to none. This was our second stay and can't wait to arrange the third. We were made to feel very welcome and the private use of a sitting room was so helpful as we were travelling with a baby for which they provided a new high chair at very short notice!

We stayed here last weekend as we were attending a wedding locally. Jonny could not have been a better B&B proprietor, he is a natural host and really understands how to make his guests welcome. The room was very comfortable with a modern bathroom and the breakfast was delicious and plentiful. I would recommend The Draen without hesitation - thank you for a lovely weekend.
