We stayed here 2 nights - received a warm welcome from Janet. Ideal location for walking in the Elan Valley. Comfy bed and great curries. A couple of comments - the shower cubicle was very small and the road nearby was a bit noisy, but...More

Friendly atmosphere goes hand in hand with good pub food. The place has a well deserved reputation for Indian Curries, they serve up a varied choice of really good Indian food. The rest of the menu is a little limited but pub favourites such as...More

Excellent stay recently for work. The hotel was very homely and the staff couldn't do enough for you. Food was great and I had one of the best curries I have ever eaten! A really relaxed place to stay.
