Plasnewydd Bed and Breakfast
Reviewed 3 September 2009

We found Plasnewydd from the website and it more then lived up to expectations. The room was spotless and had everything we could want. The hospitality tray even had lovely home made cakes. The breakfasts were excellent. Plenty of choices and well presented. Nothing was too much trouble for Shirley as she has such a way of making you feel at home. We had a very relaxing few days and enjoyed exploring the area.
When we are next in the area it will be our first choice stop for accommodation.

From start to finish nothing was too much trouble for hostess Shirley. I was made to feel at home. All the rooms were spotless and breakfast, served to a well prepared table, set me up for a day's motorcycling. My single bedroom had a tea tray and cake, every day, what a lovely touch. Worth another visit, most definitely!

We spent a very pleasant few days at Plasnewydd. The room was very clean and comfortable, and Mrs Allen was very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious, with plenty of choice, and generous quantities. Local facilites are good, with plenty of places for evening meals. All in all, this was excellent value for money.

We were very comfortable at Plasnewydd. It's an older, brick townhouse with a lovely small garden to which Shirley pays special attention. We were the only guests during our stay. The bedrooms are up a steep staircase, but very comfortable with lovely ensuite (lots of hot water in the showers). Breakfast is served in a comfortable sitting/dining room. The boys enjoyed the television and videos in the sitting room. Breakfast was cooked to an order placed the previous evening, large and very tasty.

Llanwrtyd Wells is a small but interesting town--ask about the bog snorkelling! We had dinner the first night at one of the pubs, but would highly recommend the Drover's Arms (not a pub, really a restaurant with rooms) for dinner--fabulous Welsh beef steaks.

The benchmark for all B&B's to strive for. It is an honour a pleasure and a priviage to stay with Shirley every year.
A special lady.

We enjoyed our stay at the Plasnewydd. The B&B was built in 1911, the house has kept certainly most of the style of that period, with only a few rooms that have been modified.
We had the private bathroom which was lovely. It was nice not to have a TV in the bedroom just the radio and to get away from the hussle and bussle of general life.
The only thing that I would say is the kettle in the bedroom did give off a smell which occasionally tainted the drinks.
The breakfast was to your design which was very good. You do have to notify the previous night on the sheet what you would like. It did cater for all our needs.
You also weren't expected in by a certain time before the front door is closed. I would certainly come back and stay at this B&B
