Booked late Thursday evening for a one night stay for the Saturday as meeting up with our daughter and her family holidaying locally. Deluxe bedroom - large with nice views. Very quiet. Freedom to come and go as and when at whatever time. Asked time we would like breakfast - which I must say was magnificent. Large, hot and plentiful...

We stayed for two nights and ate in the restaurant one night. The friendly owners - and their cats - took a lot of time to make us feel welcome, and both the room and food were lovely (especially the chocolate mousse). The room was quiet, warm and looked out onto the garden and the Usk Valley. The breakfasts were...

After a lovely week away exploring the Brecon Beacons, we chose The Travellers Rest as a final night eating place after hearing encouraging whispers. My wife and I were so glad we did - had a fantastic evening eating food that was flawless in taste and preparation in cosy surroundings. If you are anywhere near, you must treat yourself. The...

Booked last minute for a meal and overnight stay and were not disappointed. The food was fantastic with locally sourced simply cooked food which was superb. Attentive friendly service and a comfortable night sleep. Followed by one of the best breakfasts I've had for a long time and a relaxing walk along the canal side.

Such a lovely little place tucked in alongside the canal. Booked a table in here for myself and my boyfriend and it was very enjoyable indeed. The menu included a few things I had never heard of but I took a gamble and went for the smoked duck for my starter. I had never ever eaten duck prior to this...

We had a lovely relaxing 2 night stay here with our cycles. This is a welcoming and friendly place to stay. The room was spotless and nicely furnished. Lovely garden with gorgeous view of the valley and nice areas to sit and take in the view. The breakfast is substantial and with plenty of refills of coffee. We ate here...

Very good point Tess502, we will indicate on our menus that the meat we use is locally sourced, as is, as far as possible all other ingredients. So glad you had a relaxing stay though your cycling sounded anything but relaxed Anyway a nice soak afterward and look forward to another birthday. Thank you

So glad you enjoyed your dinner with us and took time to write this gratifying review We can actually seat 30 by removing the sofas, this for reunions of families, friends etc. If you can persuade Joy to give you her sticky toffee cake, let me know, so far I've failed ( Doug ) Look forward to your return
