Lovely weekend at the Drawing Room. Small but perfectly formed, the rooms are stylishly decorated and the hosts so welcoming and helpful. There is gorgeous scenery locally with some amazing walks from Talgarth at the edge of the Brecon Beacons. Finally the food is amazing. Perhaps amongst the best dining experience we have had. The care and thought the owners...

This was the fourth visit to the Drawing Room and the fifth won't be long. Mel and Colin provide an exceptional experience for those who appreciate the finest in food and wine. The rooms are all very well appointed, comfortable, spotless with great attention to detail. It is the food and wine that truly surpasses ANYTHING we've enjoyed at the...

BE AWARE OF THE HIDDEN AND RIGID TERMS AND CONDITIONS BEFORE BOOKING THIS PLACE. We booked this last minute and yes that means we didn't perhaps pay attention as we should have. - we thought we had booked bed and breakfast with the option for an evening meal. Oh no !!! Evening meal is COMPULSORY. Not only does it cost...

?? Not true. It is not possible to miss that dinner is compulsory on the MrandMrsSmith website. I also gave you a call to book the time you wanted for dinner each evening and to ascertain whether there were any food dislikes or allergies. You fully understood that dinner was compulsory and you booked 7.30pm for each evening. I kept...

Spent 2 nights DB&B here and can't recommend it highly enough. Didn't really know what to expect when I booked, and was a bit worried that the menu was set and no choices available. Having been asked to state what we could/couldn't eat and what we liked, it was time to take a chance. And we weren't disappointed. I would...

If you like to try a different experience, you cannot go wrong by booking into the Drawing Room. Here you will get very good food,good decor and personal service, almost like sharing their home with you. With just 3 rooms and 4 tables for dinner this is not for those who like crowds. But if you like it quieter then...

The Drawing Room is set within beautiful countryside, plenty of varied walks and wonderful views. The hotel itself is thoughtfully decorated, a real fire in the original fireplace in the welcoming and comfortable lounge. We stayed in the Oliver room; it was comfortable and spotlessly clean. There was an ensuite bathroom with huge roll top bath, and underfloor heating. The...

What an incredible find! We stayed in the Oliver room for 2 nights Feb 14th - 16th and both of us loved every moment. The service was friendly and respectful, the food and wine was outstanding - after walking around the nearby beautiful Elan Valley coming back to dinner of this standard was exactly what we needed. Quite honestly the...

Visited at the end of August for a mid week break after reading the reviews on here about how good the food was, The food at both dinner and breakfast was exceptional, We stayed for 2 nights and the only downside for us was that there is no tea and coffee making available in the room

Thank you for your comments. With regards to the tea and coffee in the room you forgot to mention that you took advantage of our complimentary room service for all your tea and coffee needs. In fact we offer a full drinks service because we are a licensed restaurant. Despite that you thought it was OK to bring all your...
