As a solo traveller am so pleased that I discovered Bryncelyn and it's gem of a landlady, Lil. She is a wonderful, warm and friendly person for whom nothing is too much trouble. Her breakfasts are magnificent! I wanted one a bit earlier than usual as I had to travel to a conference - absolutely no problem. The room was... More

Breakfast is stunning, with a range of different things to choose from fruit, yogurts, full English (which was amazing) cereals. Considering other hotels in the area prices increase due to high demand for the cob sales this... More

I have stayed here many times and every time it is like coming home, only nicer and you always get a really warm Welsh welcome from Lil, the Irish owner. Lil is a wonderful hostess. She unfailingly remembers guests names and keeps a lovely house. The rooms are very clean and tidy with excellent facilities including little touches such as... More

I stayed here for one night with my wife at the start of our honeymoon, it's a lovely little place. The owner is a very friendly Irish lady who cooks an epic Full Welsh breakfast. The room was a good size, nice and clean with a really comfy bed. I'd have no qualms about staying here again.

A great & welcoming b&b in the centre of the smallest town in Wales. Very comfortable bed in a good sized room, large clean bathroom and a great breakfast. What's not to like! Will definitely book again when we're next in the area.

A super b&b with everything you would expect: comfortable bed, hearty breakfast and good sized room. Ideally located with friendly and accommodating owners. A real gem of a b&b in a gem of a town. Reasonably priced and well maintained with immaculate rooms.

Stayed here last week during a business trip to a local electronics distributer in the town. We had a fantastic stay. The owner was friendly, breakfast nice and the room comfortable - and it was very good value. Significantly better than any of the chain joints we had stayed in during the rest of our trip. Would thoroughly recommend.
