This is a very elegant yet homely B and B and the owners are generous in their hospitality. Everything is of top quality and the breakfast is beautifully cooked and thoughtfully sourced. The owners are friendly and professional.

We enjoyed our stay at Glan y Dwr, nothing was too much trouble for our very welcoming hosts. Nicely furnished, well equipped and spacious bedroom/bathroom suite, superbly comfortable bed. Excellent breakfast, well cooked and with great local ingredients. Helpful, thoughtful extras like the news/whats on sheet from the Brecon Beacons National Park blog, available to browse at breakfast.

I recently booked this accommodation for my visiting relatives. They loved it and made the following comment - 'Elegant, wanted for nothing, such comfort. Felt we had known Julian and Alison a long time."

Stayed here in the summer and really enjoyed it. Spotless grand Victorian house. Excellent breakfast. In a good location for Crickhowell, which is a fantastic village, and the surrounding hills. Would definitely go again.

This was the loveliest B&B we have ever visited. The accomodations are superior quality in every detail, the breakfast was delicious and well thought out. The hosts were very helpful, knowlegeable, and active members of the community. I give the highest recommendation and would definitely return!

What a great B&B – I can’t think of anything we could have needed or wanted that wouldn’t have been made available. And, unlike some places, what was on offer wasn’t just a lovely, comfortable bedroom & bathroom with every possible edible comestible and bathroom product you can think of. In addition, there was a gorgeous dining room, a cosy...

From the warmest of welcomes with tea and home made cake to the beautiful house and lovely breakfast I cannot recommend too highly. Great location for exploring The National Parks and close enough for time in Cardiff too.

We stayed here for two nights and I would highly recommend this B&B! The room was spacious with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was brilliant with a bath which was much appreciated after a long drive and some mountain walking!
