4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2012

Just got back from 2 nights stay in Room 5 - only hit head twice on beams! Nice room with chairs to sit on a bonus. Easy to find,and Gareth was pleasant & helpful. Good breakfasts with fast service. Gareth if you are reading this, we found the rain just at the border and it tipped down all the way past Birmingham!!!
One tiny niggle to make this a balanced review - sorry - the bathroom could do with a little bit of a makeover: nothing major honest...but we loved the room decor and bed (we have slept in some awful beds here and abroad, believe me) was fine. Top marks for having 2 pillows each - made a nice change not to have to ask for extras. Also easy walking distance into town.

Would definitely recommend.

This was the second time that I've been to stay with work. Gareth is so accommodating and friendly - makes you feel right at home from when you first arrive. I've stayed in room 1 and 5 and both were comfortable and had everything you could need. The rooms were well maintained, comfortable and homely. The breakfasts are an absolute must as well! I just hope I get the chance to come back and stay a third time.

The stay started with an extremely friendly welcome from Gareth the owner. The room (room 2) was very nice and comfortable. The full Welsh breakfast was excellent. We will definitely be back in the future, and would recommend the hotel to friends.

Always a bit cautious about booking accommodation in Wales as often the 'offer' does not match the reality, may be I have just been just been unlucky? I have found a good few places and This is one of them. I booked in for my normal 1 night, just to be safe but ended up staying for a week. A number of reasons contributed to me extending my stay...The Dovey Valley is a real gem on a place, worthy of a week stay and the train service from Machynlleth is great. This B&B really is very CLEAN and fresh, great facilities that work, with friendly helpful hosts who really work hard at making your stay welcome. Great breakfast, plenty of off road parking for those who travelled by Car. A short walk from the town and its amenities and great place to recover for those Walkers who need to recharge the batteries and get the washing done.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the house
