    The hotel was homely, comfortable and relaxing. The staff are helpful, freindly and efficient. The view from my room was stunning. The food was delicious. Well worth the money!

    It would be good if the hotel had a lift as the stairs could be difficult for someone with mobility difficulties. this is the only thing I feel that could improve on the experience of staying at the hotel.

    Staff were very efficient and friendly despite concerns about flooding in the area due to Storms. They were never quite sure whether they were going to be able to get home after their shifts but remained upbeat and positive. The location was great - right in the middle of the village. Food choices were good with two restaurants open.

    Nothing, although in the summer I could imagine there may be problems parking as the area is very popular.

    Breakfast was pleasant with a good selection of food although no traditional Welsh breakfast on offer. Certain staff more attentive than others. Location is visually pleasant but a bit run down with empty buildings. Eating out was limited but found an excellent Pizzeria called "Hanging Ape" which was a really good vibe with great food. All proceeds went to help endangered primates. Local area had some nice walks and with the heavy rains and localised flooding the river was a treat although probably became an issue later after we had vacated with further rain forecast.

    Upon arrival told only 1 disabled parking space opposite Hotel and reception staff (one individual particularly) was rude which included attempting pressuring us to pay in full for our 3 day stay. No lift to 2nd floor and despite staff witnessing struggling with luggage said it was above their "Pay Grade" to help! (wtf). Room was rear of Hotel which exposed us to kitchen ventilation which ran all night with staff coming and going. Not enough lighting in bathroom to assist with shaving and make up. In room tv limited to 4 channels and no way of increasing number. TV would not play movies off usb stick either. Bed too hard and industrial for my tastes. Local area quite run down with empty buildings and too many overpriced outdoor shops although local spar had a good selection of items including a bakery. Not enough quality places to eat. Natural local attractions (water fall) was fenced off and had to pay to see nature. Would only accept contactless. If they had built it I would understand but come on!

    Very good stay, room was clean and spacious, and of course it’s attached to the awesome Stables pub! Evening meal at the restaurant was excellent.

    TV signal in the room was a bit hit and miss.

    Pleasant and welcoming staff on arrival and check-out. Value for money was reasonable.

    On arrival, our (stable lodge) room appeared clean and fresh; however, upon closer inspection, there were what appeared to be eyelashes on the pillows, the bed sheet did not fit the mattress properly meaning the top end of the mattress was exposed which uncovered more debris... Both bedside lamps were dusty, there was a dirty cotton pad underneath the desk and the kettle could've done with a thorough clean. Moving onto breakfast (which we were told was served until 9.45am), we arrived just before 9am and found our own table. Once seated, we were not approached by a member of staff for over 15 minutes, when we were finally seen to, we were told that breakfast orders were no longer being taken (this was a joke). This was very off-putting and when we were eventually asked for our orders, we explained that we had not been given a menu. This was not corrected, nor was an apology given and we were simply asked what we wanted, not having any knowledge of the options. The breakfast was average and the overall experience wasn't great.
