Don't let appearances put you off, we stopped here on our way home from Anglesey and we had stopped at a few pubs before getting to Builth Wells and then spotted the Little Chef and Burger King and pulled in while parking we spotted the Llanelwedd Arms and a sign saying home cooked food. So we decided to drive over...

Food as fabulous (and huge!) as ever, and the desserts are still a highlight. Staff all friendly, beds and duvets super comfy and the massive bath sheets are appreciated. We have stayed there for years and will be back next year. Lovely to see non residents eating there as well

This is the third time that I have stayed at this hotel. First impressions indicate dated decor in the downstairs rooms and bar, yet my room (4) was really clean and well decorated. The bed was comfy with a selection of pillows. I did not eat at the hotel or have breakfast as I was up and away early so...

Food looked great but we never got to taste it, as waiting an hour and a half, with no explanation was far too long, we were not the only ones, couple at the table next to us had same issue, we asked fo our money back and left, hungry and disheartened.

Hi We were very busy that day and I told the staff to tell everyone that there would be at least an hours wait. If this was not communicated to you then I am very sorry. I hope you will give us another chance. Again my sincere apologies.

This is the second time we have stayed here and is so convenient for the dog shows at the Royal Welsh show ground, the accommodation is basic but clean and comfortable, the meals are good value and the staff are lovely and very helpful. We will definitely be going back again next year.

Hi Thank you for your kind words. I took over the hotel on 30th March this year and we are trying to make improvements. I have renewed all the bed linen and towels and replaced some of the curtains. The work is ongoing! Look forward to seeing you again.

We waited an hour and a half for our food to arrive. Asked them 3 times how much longer we would have to wait and they went to find out but never got back to us!! By 9.30 we decided we couldn't wait any longer and were soooooo tired from being at the showground all day, so we asked for...

We went during the Royal Welsh for a post show bite. We waited in the bar till our table was ready and the waitress came to get another group who had just arrived. When explaining we had been waiting for half an hour her response of "well you haven't been to see me yet have you" this was not appreciated...

We booked early for the Spring Antiques fair.- thank goodness. The hotel is right opposite the entrance to the Royal Welsh showground - a short walk and we were in to wonder. Back at the hotel and the rooms were fine, very comfortable beds and pillows, no noise from the bars, very little road noise. Everything was clean and to...

Hi, thank you for your kind words. We have installed a 'bean to cup' coffee machine which can make all the coffee varieties. It is fed with high quality coffee beans, so I hope when you stay next time the coffee will be better! We are also carrying out a programme of redecoration of the hotel, so you will see...

Booked a meal here what a mistake, the staff appeared to have no idea what they were doing. The girl on the bar seemed lost to even the simplest request and had to ask another member of staff about everything she did not even know what a slim line tonic was. We were placed at a table that was blocked...
