Good Hotel Guide Review

Guests enjoy the warmth and friendliness of a traditional guest house combined with all the space and privacy they could wish for at this unusual rural B&B which ‘couldn’t be better’. In gentle countryside, a short drive from sandy beaches, it centres on a pretty Victorian farmhouse, with smart contemporary accommodation in converted stables, granary, mill and threshing barn. Now the Garden Room has been upgraded to a suite, all have a separate sitting room, a kitchenette with espresso machine, fridge, mini bar and microwave, and their own outdoor space. Richard Morgan-Price and Huw Thomas have handed over the reins to Kathryn and Richard Jones, who plan to maintain their excellent standards. In the morning, tables are set with starched linen and fine china for breakfast. Help yourself to freshly squeezed orange juice, organic yogurt, and Agen prunes steeped in triple sec. Hot dishes include cockles, bacon and laver bread, locally smoked salmon, haddock, kipper, free-range farm eggs, the full Welsh or vegetarian. ‘For such an excellent place, the prices are amazing.’ (Dr John D. Lee)

Comments about Penbontbren

Your current review fully reflects the superb standards of this place. It couldn't be better. Richard and Huw have thought of everything a guest could possibly need. For such an excellent place the lowish prices are amazing. - Dr John Lee - September 2020
Richard and Huw are charming hosts. Richard is wonderful at breakfast, chats to all his guests and is always keen to hear what we have enjoyed and reports of restaurants they recommend. We had splendid weather and found our private patio a bonus. It was so relaxing sitting in the sunshine after breakfast or early evening with a glass of wine in complete silence to enjoy views of the delightful gardens. - Janet & Dennis Allom - May 2017
From the moment I arrived at this luxury bed and breakfast, I was made to feel at home thanks to the generous and warm welcome shown to me by the owners Richard and Huw. My accommodation was spotlessly clean, well equipped and furnished by the owners who have a fine eye for detail. The breakfast was excellent. The extensive grounds, even in winter, were well maintained. - AC - February 2017
