Good Hotel Guide Review
The red brick exterior of this former Victorian vicarage set back from the A483 in the Welsh marches might look ‘somewhat gaunt’ but inside are light-filled rooms, a ‘very pleasant lounge’ and a warm welcome. Tim and Helen Withers are ‘good hosts’, welcoming guests, and happy to help with planning days out. Bedrooms, including a family room, have a light-touch country house look with pretty wallpaper, botanical prints and perhaps a cast iron bed or sloping ceiling. ‘A lovely view from the bathroom,’ noted one reader. ‘Our room, Mule, though not huge was perfectly big enough, with an extremely comfortable bed.’ Breakfast can kick off with ‘fabulous’ porridge with Welsh honey followed by a wide range of cooked dishes including omelettes. ‘The simply superb kipper was the best I’ve ever had.’ An evening mezze plate can be arranged for guests wishing to dine in.
