We have just stayed at Plas Mawr for a few nights. Tina made us very welcome. The bed was sooo comfy, and the Breakfasts were delicious. We would definitely return to this guest house. Well done Tina! and Thankyou very much.

Our most recent visit was just as excellent as previous ones. They say that it's the people who make the diference, and Plas Mawr is the perfect example of this. That, combined with comfort and excellent food, make this our favourite B & B

Stayed for one just night as a break from a rainy camping trip. The room was lovely, and had one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. Breakfast was delicious.
