“Amazing value and great hospitality”
Reviewed 3 April 2010

My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at this hotel, first impressions are of a lovely old building full of history and charm, the reception and bar areas are just how they should be for a building of this age, full of old world charm with a few modern twists. On arrival we were welcomed by a very lovely young lady who turned out to be the daughter of the owner, she personally introduced herself and as well as being extremely professional, had a great friendly manner - thank you for your hospitality Sophie, this also extends to your family.

We were informed that the hotel had recently gone through extensive refurbishment and were offered a newly decorated twin room, this was truly beautiful with 2 double beds, luxurious fluffy bedding and original wooden beams running through it. The jacuzzi bath was an added bonus, and the little thoughtful extra's that made it were the huge basket of towels and complimentary products. The decor and workmanship was of a high standard.

I originally had reservations about booking a 3 star hotel but this perfect little retreat had so much to offer, including the price which was £65 BB with laterooms - I've stayed in 5 star hotel rooms that are no where near as plush and as beautifully decorated!!

The hotel is also in a great location for walking the hiils, we managed table mountain - reaching the top was just brilliant! There are many other walks in the area and I would highly recommend visiting the information centre for maps etc, the ladies here are very helpful.

I can't wait to go back!

Stayed here twice in February and had a great time on both occasions. Great location clsoe to Usk, the canal and wonderful backdrop of the Brecon Beacons with the Llangatock escarpment and world famous caves (these are a must see)
Smashing walking country with everything you might need on your doorstep.
Good hotel acccomodation, all modern, very friendly and helpfull staff, excellent food, can't wait to go again!

We have just come back from a stay at The Old Rectory. We booked one of the suites which was extremely clean, polished and luxurious. Our room (room 25) included a massive 2 person Jacuzzi, huge flat screen TV, 2 sofas and a very comfortable bed. The main part of the hotel is fully of nooks and crannies an has the bags of character that you would expect from such a historic building. Prices for our food and drink were very honest and exactly what we were expecting, however we were not expecting the incredible level of service that was delivered in a genuine and consistent manner throughout our stay.

Very hard to beat this hotel for overall value. Supposed to be a 3 star (I would give it 5 start for the luxurious room and fantastic service).

Where do I start - what a fantastic hotel, the location,the staff,the food.
We travelled from Ludlow, we are great foodies and walkers and the Old Rectory has to be one of the best in the area if you love good food and walking.
From the minute we arrived Shaun & his team were helpful, full of local knowledge and very friendly. We had booked to stay in a standard double but were given an upgrade to a deluxe double as they were just finishing off refurbishing a couple of rooms. Wow - we were really impressed with the decor, views and what a comfy bed!
We spent saturday exploring the caves, we were able to set off from the hotel after a hearty full welsh breakfast. In the evening the bar had a gentle buzz about it, and we enjoyed a superb meal in the restaurant my fish was cooked to perfection and full of flavour. The atmosphere was friendly and we soon got chatting to locals and staff, which resulted in my partner joining in for a game of golf sunday morning.
What else can I say a real Gem!
We plan to go back again in the summer for another great weekend.

The website does a good job selling this Hotel with wonderful pictures of the building and modern looking rooms. But on arrival, I have to admit we were a little disappointed as it all looked a bit tired and haphazard. A huge and full skip in the car park, large empty cardboard boxes in the lobby, old coffee cups lying around, plaster board propped up against a wall in a main corridor, holes in walls stuffed with paper and painted over, and just a general feeling of being 'past its best'. Our bedroom door had a poorly fitted lock on it (essentially the door didn't lock at all) and the ensuite was very dated with a yellow light pull string and decaying sealant around the sink. The room itself seemed to have been updated, though some of the furniture was a little old.

BUT from the time we arrived the staff couldn't have been more helpful - very friendly and our door lock was mended by the time we came back from a lovely walk across the hills at the back. We later discovered that the place had just been taken over some 18 months ago and work was underway to make improvements (current modernisation did not affect our stay as it was a weekend). Somehow the place grew on us. The breakfast was great and our bed very comfortable. The hotel's proxmity to Crickhowell was brilliant - not in the town, but just a short walk across the churchyard through a field (with small tarmac path) and over a lovely old bridge.

Would we stay there again? Probably not for us. Would we recommend it - maybe...if you're not looking for a modern retreat. Guess it will improve overtime though, and it was fairly good value at £75 per room for night we stayed. One to watch.

In common with most hotels January /February is our quietest time of year so we do pack our refurbishments in then. I am pleased to report that this work is now complete - we have 5 new suites on our top floor and the skip has gone from the car park!

I am glad that you enjoyed your visit overall and would recommend another visit - perhaps try one of the new rooms next time?

We stayed in adjoining rooms - double for us, twins for the kids. The setup was cosy and suited us well. One of the rooms was VERY cosy - would have been a bit too tight if we didn't have the other room too.

The rooms, particularly the bathroom were well done - new and to a high standard - although no bath, just shower.

Our main gripe is that the lounge and bar lacked atmosphere - it was very quiet during our stay. Also according to my husband, the beer served was too gassy and cold.

All in all though, we had a good time and would consider returning.

A large group of us stayed on a biking & walking weekend and had a fantastic stay. This is a really nice hotel at the very top end of 3 star. The manager (shaun) was full of good advice and really looked after us. Perhaps the best thing we can say is that we are staying again next year.
