I stayed for 2 nights. All meals were delicious. I can heartily recommend the tapas.A hearty Welsh breakfast is also highly recommended. Beer was nice, a wide choice of wines and prices very reasonable. Family owned and run, with friendly staff.

We spent two nights, over the bank holiday weekend, at this lovely B&B. We had great communication with Helen before we arrived and she was there to welcome us and settle us in. Our room was beautifully clean and had tea and coffee facilities which we never got to use but appreciated. The overwhelming memory of the room for me...
