“Excellent guesthouse”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Due to unexpected traffic delays we telephoned guest house to say that we would be arriving later that the 22hrs arrival time. We were pleasantly surprised to be told that this was no problem and without no anticipated time for our arrival the owners volunteered to await for us at whatever time we arrived. When we arrived at 22.35hrs and were even offered food.

Rooms were very clean, comfortable with excellent facilities.

Breakfast out of this world. Couldn't have done enough for us.

Will definitely use this friendly excellent hotel if we come to the area again.

Thank you very much.

Thank you for posting this lovely review. It was no problem waiting for your arrival - in fact it was very good of you to keep us informed of your journey's progress - as the delay was no fault of yours. We hope to see you again in the future.

Thank you for posting this great review. This is a particularly lovely time of the year in Mid Wales with the Spring flowers, especially the daffodils. The lambs are just arriving too. We look forward to you staying again soon.

We've always loved staying at this guest house. The owners are so lovely and make you feel so welcome. The rooms are so comfortable and it's spotless. The town is really tranquil, a real escape from the stressors of everyday life. The breakfast was delicious too. Really can't fault this at all and we are so looking forward to staying again soon.

Went to the Real Ale Ramble weekend with friends and stayed at this hotel. Lil, the owner, was fantastic - friendly, caring and interested in her guests. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was great and the rooms were spotless and charming. I had room 5 on the side of the hotel which meant that it was quite - away from the road. I couldn't fault the facilities in any way. My friend was provided, for a modest fee, with a packed lunch for the walk that he thoroughly enjoyed. We immediately booked again for next year, such was the impression. We have stayed in other places in the town on previous walks and non comes close.

Room Tip: Lil did warn me that the TV and Wi-fi reception in room 5 was erractic and she was right. It didn...

I have been visiting Llanwrtyd in the quiet period between the Mid Wales Beer Festival weekends with friends for about twenty years. This is the first time but not hopefully the last that I've stayed in the Bryncelyn.

There are several excellent places to stay in Llanwrtyd each with their own character. Bryncelyn offers modern comfortable facilities with a great breakfast and excellent value.

There is also free wifi which varies in strength around the building.

I organised our company cycle challenge in September and we stayed at the Bryncelyn Guest House on our first night. As you can imaging the cyclists were exhausted after their 8 hour, 75 mile first day of riding but were overwhelmed by the welcome we recieved. Hot drinks and cakes were available as we walked through the door along with a warm welcome from Lil and Malcolm. The rooms were excellent and the breakfast even more so.

As the organiser I particulaly liked the ease of booking and payment. My job was to ensure the cyclists had everything they needed and Lil made my job so much easier.

The cyclists were that impressed by the set-up they insited we book the entire guest house for our 2014 cycle challenge.

Thanks again for the warm welcome and we will see you again in September 2014.

Room Tip: Talk to Lil and Malcom about your needs as they were great at advising the best room for our guests...

Thank you so much for your lovely review. What a lovely group you were and we're delighted you've booked again for next September. There's always a great atmosphere in the house when we have a group booking especially at breakfast when everyone chats and plans their day. We look forward to seeing you all (& a few extra) next year.

I only stayed 1 night but the service was top class.The room we had was very spacious and comfortable & had everything you would need. The breakfast was lovely and kept me and my traveling companion going all day. Would definitely stay there again.
