This is a superior B&B. The rooms are beautifully appointed and everything that you could possibly want is here. The views across Crickhowell are exceptional. Alison and Julian are wonderful hosts and are have extensive knowledge of the area. Just a short stroll to some wonderful pubs/restaurants. Oh, and the breakfast is sensational!

Our room was large and very comfortable with great views of the mountains and a good bathroom with lots of hot water (great after long walks), and as for the breakfast... really excellent - well cooked, local sausages and bacon and homemade...

Beautiful House, wonderful well appointed rooms with on-suite, very clean, perfect position, wonderful views, and that's not the best bit. The friendly owners made the stay even better producing a wonderful breakfast with great chat and knowledge of the area. I will stay here again, oooh forgot to mention, great value.

What a find! We have just spent four nights at Glan y Dwr, where Julian and Alison made us most welcome. The house is beautiful and our room, Skirrid, which had been made up with a king-sized bed, was extremely comfortable and spacious.

The owners are super helpful and friendly. The bed rooms are superb and the breakfast is perfectly indulgent. A great bed-n-breakfast experience in Crickhowell. The parking spaces were very handy. The location is also at the heart of the village, so it's easy to get everywhere by foot. We'll definitely be back.
