Stayed at this hotel over a Saturday night in October 2010. It was my second visit as I had previously patronised this venue 2-years ago. In the intervening period of my 2 visits I could only note one difference. The price. It had increased significantly.
First the positive points:
The hotel is large and spacious and is situated in a true gem of a town in the beautiful mid-Wales countryside. The food in the hotel is home-made and very tasty. The staff are accomodating and very homely in ther manner and demeanour.
Sadly, now the negatives:
The room was on the grubby side and the furnishings looked decidedly jaded and old fashioned. The oversink-light in the bathroom was defective and the TV did not work (it would not show anything other than fuzz). The bed was without any meaningful support and I suffered a terrible night, which was similar to sleeping on a haystack.
In this age, when it is possible to obtain a room in a Travel Lodge for about £30 (allbeit without breakfast), I was saddened to see that the bill for our room was a very hefty £75.
There is a good feel about this location, and the locally brewed beer served in the bar is first class. However, the rooms are certainly more hostel than hotel and are grossly overpriced and more importantly, less than clean.
If you are looking for accomodation in Llanwertyd Wells I would suggest that you visit this hotel. Have a beer in the bar and even enjoy some of the good food. But for the love of Elvis do not take a room without at least asking to see the room and check the standard of the hygiene of the room on offer. There are many hotels and guest houses in the town which would offer a better, and cheaper option.
In summery ~ sadly I could not recommend this venue to other travellers.
