The Radnorshire Arms

Reviewed 9 May 2017

Had a one night stay in the hotel, room was large and spacious with a nice comfortable bed. Large bath with a overhead shower are provided with plenty of hot water and towels. Our room was situated in a building separate to the hotel with easy access from car park behind. Wifi in room was an added benefit as I see from older reviews say wifi was only available in main building. The Hotel itself is a very quaint old building from 16th century but has nice dining room a sitting room.
The lady on reception was very helpful and made us welcome and comfortably settled in our room quickly and efficiently. The menu is varied and the evening meal was well presented and very nice. All in all a place worth spending the night as it's a beautiful area.

Room Tip: The rooms are in the garden at the rear of the hotel, so really very quiet and peaceful. The only th...

This old inn really looks the part with its black-and-white half-timbered exterior and oak pannelled interior. There is a bar with two real ales and a mixture of dark wooden tables, a lounge with armchairs and TV, restaurant and reception lobby. My room was clean and nicely decorated with a roomy bathroom and a comfortable bed plus all you need in your room. There is a large and attractive garden and some annexe rooms.
The staff were very helpful and pleasant, even when busy and generally answered queries efficiently.
The food was OK and, although some effort had been made, not spectacular. The olives on my olives-and-bread starter were rather tasteless black ones, but it also came with sun-dried tomatoes taht were more interesting. The bread was the French stick you put in the oven to finish off and there was lots of good olive oil to dip it into. Main course was the 'Presteigne Trout' which was a bit overcooked for my tastes but pleasant. The skin has lots of sea salt crusting it and it had lemon slices and herbs inside. The vegetables were standard, and also a little overcooked.
There was some lovely fresh fruit, with a grapefruit base, at breakfast time and a generous cooked breakfast.
It is an unspoiled inn of the old style and well kept with nice staff and the decor was in better condition than some such places.
The telephone system is very odd. Wifi in the public rooms.

We visited in order to attend a local funeral . The staff are very helpful and attentive. Our room was clean , tidy , and spacious, with a very good wet room . The hotel was a fine old building dating back to 1616. We had one evening meal and one breakfast, and both were of a good standard. We would definitely return if in the area again !

From the discarded bath in the car park to the broken stone steps we gained a fairly accurate impression of what awaited us within.

My colleague had a panelled room with a recently modernised bathroom. My room was very spacious and light but the bathroom was about 20 years overdue for a refit. Everything was clean, though.

A few little touches would have made a big difference. Like biscuits in the room, a bar of soap in the bathroom and wi-fi that worked in the room, not just in the lounge and bar.

Evening food was filling and well presented, but unexciting. The breakfast was pretty good.

The location is blissfully quiet and the town is pleasant.

Booked the hotel on a travelzoo deal and we were pleasantly surprised at the standard of the room. The building itself is steeped in history as is the local area and it is worth checking out before you travel as the information available at the hotel is very limited and they could do a lot more on this in my opinion. We ate in the bar on the first night and chose the restaurant for the second. On both occasions the food was very nice and served with a smile. The local area has some wonderful walks and we would definitely return if another offer became available

Dreadful. Came for lunch at 1pm and asked for 'Presteigne trout' on the menu. Barman said the trout had 'just arrived' and was not yet available. Half an hour later I asked again. Barman said the trout was not yet gutted. I asked him why the chef could not gut it now. Surely that would take only a minute or two? Was the trout fresh or frozen? Barman said that the trout was fresh but the chef was unwilling to gut it! He didn't seem to be bothered. I took this up with the manageress upon leaving and told her I had not encountered such poor service for many many years. Hence one star.

I've visited this hotel several times over the last two weeks. I've not stayed here overnight but I was looking for somewhere to have coffee and lunch and use the wifi during the week.

The staff here made me feel very welcome from the moment I walked in. The coffee and lunches are really good and very reasonably priced.

The staff here are welcoming and attentive, consistently polite and thoughtful, nothing is too much trouble.

The bar areas, lounges and toilets are always clean too. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Presteigne or the surrounding areas.
