“Excellent!”
Reviewed 20 August 2011

stayed for 2 nights, with our dog.
The room was immaculate, having just been decorated. Really comfy bed and great facilities.
The staff were really friendly and helpful and dog lovers!!
Lovely atmosphere and great food, the breakfast set us up for a days walking and the evening meal was delicious.
Will be recommending to friends and family and would return again.

We turned up here without a booking and asked if they were able to accommodate us. We were with our 11 month old daughter who was very welcomed too. We stayed in a large room with the most magnificent bathroom I have ever seen. It was off a little walkway off the bedroom....with no door but 100% private. Shame we checked in late and left early as this really is a place I'd have loved to have stayed for longer. The food was also excellent with plenty of choice for us being vegetarians.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the huge bathroom!

We had a lovely stay here except for the room. We had a premium room and when we turned the light off at night we could see the neighbouring room's lights shining though where the panel in-fills meet the oak beams. Also we could hear the people next door very clearly.
Despite this we did sleep very well and loved the atmosphere of the place. The menu in the restaurant is excellent but sadly some of the dishes don't quite live up to the promise however the friendliness of the staff more than makes up for this.

We stayed at the Briggands Inn when we went to a mountain bike event in Machynlleth (its quite far out from there so you'll need a car) and had a really lovely time. We wanted to take our dog and she was welcomed with open arms in all areas of the hotel which was really lovely.

There were a few little hiccups along the way (ever heard of a hotel only serving starters for dinner?) but Dawn & the team are really fantatstic and to be honest it only added to the charm of the place. The walls are thin, granted, and we had a very loud snorer in a room nearby but if you aren't an overly light sleeper and are looking for a lovely little base, with hearty dinners, good breakfasts, quaint rooms (we stayed in room 5) and that allows well behaved dogs then don't look any further.

Room Tip: Check Laterooms - it was cheaper than direct!

This is a lovely looking hotel and the food was great. Extensive menu and very good service.The room was lovely and very well appointed but I had a poor night's sleep due to being disturbed by a child having a very long temper tantrum next door, not the hotel's fault the child was having a tantrum granted, but due to the thin walls, it sounded as though he was in my room! I think a little more should be spent on insulation to ensure comfort for all guests. I think if you stay in a pub you expect some noise from downstairs but should not be able to hear noise from next door room!

I particularly liked the fillet steak, with a scallop/white pudding starter, excellent value. great breakfasts, excellent smoked haddock and eggs, and the lovely Mary. we stayed in room 9, I think, very comfortable and rustically furnished. The wall to the next room was a little too thin for privacy, perhaps they could do something about this and make it totally excellent.
good central location giving access to Aberystwyth and Snowdonia. and check out the little church just down the road.

Reviewed 1 November 2010

was invited to a 50th party being held here so decided to make a weekend of it. On arrival, first impressions were very good. Staff were extremely polite and friendly and made us feel at ease when having a drink with the locals. Unfortunately we didn't eat off the menu due to a buffet provided at the party, however, the menu (and the food being served) looked very tempting and if the quality of the buffet was anything to go by then it was of a very high standard. The bedroom we had was lovely, nicely decorated and the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in on my many travels. We were greeted for breakfast by a very smiley waitress who couldn't do enough for us. Overall... very clean, comfortable and friendly hotel which I would definately stay in again and also recommend to others. Oh, and the 2 little corgi dogs are very friendly and gorgeous....
