We drove through mid Wales from Chepstow towards Snowdonia, and this was a convenient stop through very attractive, sparsely populated scenery. The town didn't sound very enticing, but I was pleasantly surprised when I explored the town center. The pub was very busy and friendly, with excellent food and a good selection of craft beers. The sleeping accomodation is in an annex behind the hotel, and was perfectly adequate. Nothing fancy, but comfortable. Breakfast was very good. Overall, it was good value and an enjoyable place to stay. The owner, James, was very pleasant and full of suggestions about routings to follow as we drove north.
