Having had 2 very very ordinary accomodation experiences in the preceding 2 days with equally ordinary evening meals it was with great trepidation that we approached the Oakley Arms. Had run late and dark was fast approaching in the middle of Welsh nowhere when we happened upon the historic pub. Having been caught the previous day with accomodation we took up the staff members offer to look at the room. Up 3 flights of steps to the room was already a worry but when door was opened it was a really pleasant suprise. Large room, large really comfortable bed and actually had furniture( see previous days hotel review) TV, big bathroom with good shower and heated towel rack. Bed was just wonderful. Very quiet room despite being in a pub when Wales had just beaten Scotland. Loved the pub itself with its many comfortable sitting areas and we really enjoyed both our dinner and breakfast. Husband declared was best meal he'd had in UK. It was an utterly wonderful unexpected experience.
