We had tihis stay as a gift for one night. We'd love to have stayed longer, the grounds are wonderful. The food was excellent, we used the bar and the dining room. We did not know that this was a 'dog friendly' place, it didn't bother us at all. The room was basic, but clean, remembering that this is rated...

Didn't quite know what to expect as I've never been on a dog friendly holiday before, Craig Y Nos was brilliant. Staff were very friendly, we ate in the bar both nights, the food was delicious and very reasonable! Breakfast was also lovely. We stayed in TGR with our 2 dogs, plenty of room, really handy having the patio doors...

We stayed in one of the garden rooms with our Golden Retriever. Very good room, large shower room with very warm towel heaters. There is a controllable central heating radiator plus a plug-in radiator in the room which we very much appreciated (it was cold for May!). Staff very friendly and breakfast very good (they cooked me veggie sausages on...

We booked a couple of nights at this Dog Friendly B&B on a special offer even though we do not own a dog! Our room was lovely, clean and quiet with a modern ensuite shower room. Staff are friendly and there is a relaxed informal air. Restaurant food is good for breakfast and dinner. The phone signal is mostly non...

Your comments are much appreciated, and its good to hear of your pleasant stay. I am happy to hear about your good food reports, as will I am sure the Kitchen. Alas yes, mobile signal is dodgy and the BT provided internet is in need of a good upgrade. As you say miles to walk. There is a very good...

We have stayed at Craig Y Nos castle three years running now. We have three large dogs and we are always made to feel very welcome. We have not found many places that will accept three dogs and certainly nowhere that serves them sausages for breakfast! The castle is a beautiful building nestled in the Brecon Beacons, it's grounds and...

Just got back from this fab place. Set in beautiful surroundings with fantastic walks for you and your dog to enjoy. It is extremely dog friendly, staff all lovely and your dog gets sausage for breakfast. A thoroughly enjoyable break that we both loved and Joe our springer spaniel did too.

This is the first time we have stayed in a Hotel with our dog because so many have rules about not letting your dog go on the dining room or other areas of the Hotel, not this one!! They allow dogs almost everywhere and your dog can certainly dine with you and has a sausage for breakfast. We had a...
