A friendly welcome, a comfy bed and an excellent breakfast - what more can one want? Parking for one car per room alongside the property. A very comfortable sitting room is available for guest use, with TV and some books and leaflets.

This is an excellent B&B with every guest made to feel very welcome. Nothing has been overlooked and the property is in first class condition, spotlessly clean throughout. With a comfortable double bed, an en-suite shower room and a flat screen TV in the room there wasn't anything missing. Breakfast was particularly good.

We made a last minute decision to get away for a few days and our choice of venue could not have been better. Warm welcome on arrival very good room and wonderful view from bedroom window. Breakfast was good and plentiful. Tina and Dave were helpful with where to eat at night and places to go during day.

I stayed at Plas Mawr whilst attending a two day course in Machynlleth. I could not fault it. There was a warm welcome when I arrived and was impressed with the room and particularly the bathroom. The bed was comfy and I had a great nights sleep. The next morning I had a full Welsh breakfast which was served early...

Excellent stay , wonderful view from our cosy room . The house was beautiful and really in keeping with its period. Tina was an excellent host and the breakfast was good quality food. Liked the idea of choosing your time and menu for breakfast the night before.

Hi Michelle, glad you liked the house, and the views from your room. Guests are welcome to order from the breakfast menu in the morning, or as you did, pre-order, which is ideal for those who want to make the most of their day. Hope you can return soon, Tina.

It was so nice to read your review, and am glad the owls added to the experience. The bird reserve is now seeing the arrival of summer migrants, and of course the countdown has begun for the arrival of our resident osprey! Look forward to seeing you again soon, Tina.

Our second stay and everything was just as lovely and Tina just as welcoming as the first time. As mentioned in my first review Plas Mawr is a quirky house and full of character. The renovation has been carried out sympathetically and even the maternal roost of very rare bats has been taken good care of! This time we stayed...
