Adrian and Lorna are lovely, welcoming people and made our stay very pleasant. The guest house is well situated near local amenities in the centre of Builth Wells, there are a couple of pubs nearby, shops and restaurants. It is within easy reach of the Brecon Beacons (~30 mins). The beds are very comfortable. The room we stayed in was...

My girlfriend and I stayed here whilst visiting family and were put in the large room at the top. Lorna and Adrian (who own the B&B) were incredibly friendly and helpful, the bed was large and comfy and the room was warm and welcoming. Couldn't recommend Bronwye highly enough if you're staying in the area.

These people attended the cob sale and left our property with out paying and having smashed up one of our rooms, having supplied a stolen credit card number when booking. We phoned them and they said they were on their way home and would put a cheque in the post. I went over to the cob sale and hey presto,...

Stayed here whilst on route to north wales, a very warm welcome, rooms are clean and tidy with ensuite and tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast was spot on and both the staff which i presume were the owners could not have done enough, highly recommended.

We stayed here for one night while on the Wye Valley Walk. The position is superb - our room (a good size with an enormous bed) overlooked a rugby pitch on the other side of which was the river Wye - and consequently there is no noise from outside. However, there were some noises from the inside as the wall...

I'm really glad you loved your room and apologise for the snoring you could hear from the next room. We actually rebuilt the dividing walls between our bedrooms about three years ago and rebuilt them with full sound insulation. However I am afraid if someone snores loud enough i am afraid there will always some noise that penetrates, it is...

The hosts give an excellent welcome and level of service. The room we had was very comfortable where all aspects were of high quality. There was lots of choice at breakfast which was superb. The location is very convenient - central but quiet.

If it were possible to add more stars to this review I would happily do so. This lovely B&B is everything you could hope for: attractive, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, convenient location and wonderful hosts. The Full Welsh breakfast is delicious but there are plenty of optional choices if you prefer something lighter. I had a special request that was...
