Quirky and welcoming. A lovely stay with friendly staff, a cosy bar and tasty breakfast. The room was very comfortable with plenty of tea and coffee. Loved the old building with uneven corridors, fantastic artwork and decoration, all of which made for a relaxing and authentic stay

Had a meal with a group of 20 a few years ago, really impressed so to break a long journey home we booked to stay overnight, and to eat. The staff, without exception were extremely friendly, polite & helpful.Our room, number 9 was equally perfect, once again a quirky building with wonky floors but 21st century comforts. Our compliments to...

I recently stayed at the Kings Arms and can honestly say that I could not fault it. From the moment that we arrived up until the moment we left we were made to feel extremely welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Having seen photos online I was feeling optimisitc about the bedroom and was certainly not disappointed. The room...

We arrived here after a long drive through Wales. Our check in was smooth and friendly and our room was clean and comfortable. That said, we overlooked a small outdoor area between the accommodation and bar. This was heavily populated with smokers and there was quite a strong smell of smoke in our room as a result. It also meant...

Clwb Gwawr Y Fenni is part of the Merched Y Wawr movement which is similar to the Women's Institute but all proceedings are conducted through the Welsh language. Twelve of us met here on a miserable wet and windy night in March for for monthly get-together. We couldn't have been more delighted with the welcome, the food and the ambiance....

Stayed at the Kings Arms on a Saturday night. All staff were very attentive and the room clean and comfortable. The hotel itself is old and quirky with its uneven floors and walls. Breakfast was very good. Would recommend this hotel for a stopover.

What a charming hotel with staff who aim to please their guests. The rear of the inn is turned into an undercover annex where they display sporting matches to an enthusiastic crowd, there's also a bar there where refreshments can be purchased. The young lady manager I spoke to asking if the historical place was haunted was very respectful saying...

We were looking for a restaurant which would provide something special for our vegetarian relative. The website published a promising looking menu. This was our first visit to the Kings Arms. We were unprepared for such a super experience. The whipped goat cheese main course was a fabulous success. I was completely bowled over by the dressed crab. It was...

We had a roast dinner here a few weeks ago which was fantastic, however we also ate here recently at lunch time on a Saturday which wasn't great! The quality of the food was good but everyone's food was over cooked, and essentially ruined! I prefer to eat rare meat and mine was medium to well, those who ordered medium...
