Friendly warm and welcoming. With great views. We only stopped for a drink. Great service even though obviously very busy. Looks like a great place for walkers. Although fairly busy road at the front.

We visited the restaurant and a very wet night, but had a warm welcome. The food was local and extremely tasty. We ate Welsh lamb and beef with interesting vegetables and tasty extras including cous cous. The staff were very friendly and helpful with local walks etc. I would certainly recommend eating here.

Lovely country inn, nicely decorated and maintained. Lovely bar area and superb food - especially the breakfast which was included. Our dog was made to feel extremely welcome in ALL parts of the inn, so we didn't have to leave him alone in our room while we ate. What made this place extra special, however, was the staff and owners.... More

Only stopped the one night, but wished it had been longer. Lovely old coaching inn with loads of character and creaky floors. Love it.

My husband and I made a last minute booking for us and our dog, Sidney. We arrived early to check in and was greeted by a lovely, warm lady who made us feel welcome. The room was fine, the hotel atmospheric and old. Even felt a few things! The vegetarian meals were cooked to order, but we weren't in any... More

Popped in on a cycle trip for a coffee and rest. Greeted by log fire and friendly staff. Coffee and cake, advice on the route, a map and chat. Geared up for meals but happy for drinks, appears to be a nice spot to stay overnight with plenty of local walks in depths of midwales. Free wifi.

Impromptu lunch. Busy with half term, lots of children but still received prompt service. Easily accommodated special dietary requirements. Good menu choice of both meals and light lunches. Good surroundings with plenty of parking.

Spent nearly a week in the Brigands on a business trip. It's a lovely hotel, full of charm and character. The food was delicious and it had a varied dinner menu. However, the most positive aspect of the stay was the hotel staff! They were courteous and wanted to please - nothing was too much trouble. I'll certainly stay there... More

We are sorry that this booking was double booked. This was as a result of the booking system which was in place when we arrived. As new owners we have now up dated the System so that the chance of over bookings is now, greatly reduced. When this problem came to light we immediately contacted the person who booked, and...
