Mostly friendly staff, although the breakfast waitress seemed unwilling to crack a smile or talk. The place is very run down - see photos, very grubby, dusty, sticky and just yukky. The Ladies toilet I found easily enough as it had Ladies written on it in marker pen. The new tiling was lovely, shame about the peeling back flooring in...

If i could give a minus score i would.. don't think the place has been cleaned since the 70s. i took a photo of the net curtain on the stairway, it was black with dirt. so obviously window had never been cleaned. cracks in...

Room was basic but nice, and clean, decor a little dated and only an electric shower, but did the job!! Breakfast was billed as full welsh but nothing Welsh about it unless you class deep fried mushrooms as Welsh!! Bed comfortable

We had a really nice stay at this pub/hotel. The hotel is very comfortable and the food is really nice. The place has a real opportunity to be really good. The place needs to be scrubbed up a bit and is in need of redecoration. The place could really make a feature of its history. We overheard an American couple...

We were in the town for a friend's birthday party and so did not get back until 12.30 ish. Unfortunately, the key card to our room failed and we were not...
