Chose this place due to excellent location for Brecon Beacons walking (just off the main 'heads of the valleys' road - lots of roadworks at the moment though!), and good reviews. What a good choice. The rooms are small but clean, with a lovely comfortable bed dressed with good quality high thread count bed linen. Food and drink in the...

7 of us stayed here for 2 nights as it was our base for Mountain Bike Wales for the weekend. Lovely owners that couldn't do enough to help. Basic but great value food and a great breakfast served to us each morning. Oh and the beer was great and again great value. We will be back!

With little notice I needed to book a room for my daughters. I read the reviews for this place and thought, with some trepidation, I'd give it a go. The Prince of Wales is a typical local public house just outside Rhymney. The landlord, a friendly enough bloke, took me to the room where I was very pleasantly surprised. A...

I stayed here while I was training with my Autism support dog. The landlord and landlady Kerri and John were welcoming,friendly and nothing was to much. The room was a good size, warm and comfortable and the breakfast was amazing. Overall I'm very happy with my stay!
