I booked this hotel after looking for a place that had decent storage for motorcycles. And to be honest I wasn't very impressed when I got to the front door as it seemed a little forgotten. But from the moment I set my foot in I was well looked after. Tiv and Nigel are fantastic hosts, the breakfast was excellent... More

I stayed for a long weekend after biking up from Exeter. The trip was partly to visit friends & also to get some biking in on the glorious Welsh roads. Nigel & Tiv will give plenty of advice as to where to ride or you can tour with them. The accommodation is comfortable, with lashings of hot water (often poor... More

Another two fantastic days at the Biker's Retreat. The upgrade to the showers is mind blowing....literally! Nige is the perfect barman, and ask to see the magic Guinness machine he never tires of showing it off. Great food by Tiv, so all in all a great place to stay. If you are after a 5* hotel look elsewhere, but home... More

Great for bikers of all sorts. Somewhere to park your bike at night and even work on if you need to. The hosts become friends with in minutes of getting there and are as helpful all the time you are there.

Stayed for one night on a bike trip around North Wales. Really friendly, great food & magic Guinness. Good undercover storage for the bikes overnight and set amongst some of the best riding roads I've ever ridden. Accommodation is simple, clean and comfortable. Will definitely visit again.

We've just had two fantastic days staying at the Biker's Retreat. From the moment we arrived it was like meeting up with old friends despite never having been here before. The room was comfortable; the food delicious; the company unbeatable. You'll find cheaper and you'll find "posher" places in the area but I don't believe you'll find anywhere more welcoming... More
