Our family of four had two rooms here for a night on an Easter trip around Wales.

Gorgeous b&b, with excellent hosts Christine & John. Beautifully decorated, cosy sofas, cushions, fur rugs, log burner, nice china & plenty of tea & coffee.

What a wonderful place to visit! Friendly staff, well appointed room and a great central location. Would highly recommend to anyone, and be sure to get the breakfast included! Lots of great pubs near its location and the staff were extremely helpful, particularly as we wanted to walk in the Beacons.
