I recently stayed in the Tyllwyd Hir B&B over the weekend. I can say this is probably the best B&B I've ever stayed in. The rooms and facilities were immaculate. The food was of the highest standard using locally produced organic products. The husband and wife who run the B&B were so helpful and polite. I'd highly recommend this B&B...

Beautifully furnished, matched bed linen, curtains and wallpaper, all rooms have adequate closet space, and the bathrooms are refurbished with completely modernised fittings and fabulous toiletries.

This B and B is not somewhere you would stumble across as it's up a long winding track and isn't advertised on the road. But the trek off piste is so well worthwhile. The house has been restored from a semi-derelict state into a comfortable home with all modern conveniences. Everything is spotless and the rooms are equipped with everything...

First class b&b. Lovely and peaceful. We stayed a couple of days last October primarily to look at the nearby town of Llandovery where my great grandfather was accidentally killed in the local Llanfair church but also did some sighseeing. Fantastic breakfasts whilst watching the birds feeing. Thoroughly recommended.

Tyllwyd Hir is a truly outstanding B&B, fully deserving of its 5 star status. I've stayed in numerous hotels around the world and this place is up there with the best of them.

From the welcoming text during the afternoon of our arrival with detailed instructions on how to find the place to the wave on departure, we couldn't fault the B & B. Yes, it is hidden away up a rough driveway but so long as you are careful, no damage should be done. We were greeted at the door by Phil...

Would you like to awaken to a serenade? If so, Tyllwyd Hir B&B may be the place for you. Yes, a serenade...and from a chorus, too. Of course, that chorus is actually a clutch of donkeys stabled a stone's throw from your room. Their hee-hawing loudly rends the air as you lie abed wondering whence the cacophony. At this early...
