I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone. Our room, the Sugarloaf, was very clean and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. Alison and Julian are fantastic hosts and did not miss any little detail. As guests that have dietary requirements, they ensured everything, from our breakfast spread to our room snack, met our needs. Alison is a fantastic cook and...

We were only passing through for one night. But Julian and Alison provided such a warm welcome to their beautiful home that we are already thinking it would be an excellent idea to return for a few days holiday. The rooms are spacious, elegant and spotlessly clean and the breakfast a delight. And there are plenty of good places to...

We booked two nights in Glan y Dwr B&B for a wedding in May this year and had a highly enjoyable stay in this homely B&B. We booked two rooms, Sugarloaf and Skirrid, both were to an immaculate standard with everything that you would need. Very clean and very spacious rooms, tastefully decorated. The owners were very welcoming and the...

This was our first stop in our two week visit to Wales, and what a great introduction. The house is beautifully decorated, and the owners are very friendly and helpful.
