We stayed a short while ago (May 2014) during the Bank holiday weekend and Hay festival so my review is probably biased. Actually this was the only room we could find for a decent price at the last minute in a 60 miles range.... so I would take this in consideration when reading the review.
First of all, the staff were amazing. We arrived at 9 pm and were immediately greeted with a warm smile. Our luggage was carried for us to the second floor which was quite a break and the room was enormous with many small treats by the kettle. The downside was the separated beds, the thin walls (lucky our neighbors with children were extremely polite) and especially the bathroom which was not ensuite. It was quite an adventure walking around the floor in our jamas and I am aware it was due to last minute and high occupancy but it was a downside for us. Almost forget the 'antique' tiny TV which could not be operated with the remote so I literally needed to go up to the tiny TV to change the volume and channels. Breakfast was fabulous and the staff were extremely nice. Of course the major attraction is the scenery and we loved the drive to and from. It was a good solution for our needs but if we had more to choose from, this wouldn't have been it. I should say, though, that the house's history is quite interesting on itself.
