Happy visit - Rating 4/5

A kind welcome to us and our two dogs. A good large room suited us particularly as its door opened to the garden area- easy for the dogs. We were fed very well and enjoyed the variety of dishes offered. Brechfa is accessible to some beautiful walking areas. We would happily recommend the hotel to others.


Dear Mr MaclayThank you so much for your kind review, we thoroughly enjoyed looking after you and Mrs Maclay. We had such fun cooking different suppers for you and spending time with you. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Keep safe and well, all the best Melissa and Paul

Great place, Wonderful Hosts - Rating 5/5

Our 2 night stay at Ty Mawr was perfect. The hotel itself is full of character and charm. Lovely big rooms with a cozy dinning room and lounge. The area itself is really pretty with lots of country walks nearby. Being only a short drive to Carmarthen and beautiful Llansteffan (keeping faith location) it is ideally placed to go sightseeing. Our hosts Paul and Melissa were perfect hosts and make you feel very welcome. Eating there was a real treat. Everything locally sourced and cooked with real passion. Wonderful stay and will definitely be back soon.

The location of the hotel in a quiet valley is most attractive and it is very conveniently located for visiting Aberglasney Gardens and the remarkable National Botanic Gardens of Wales, both about 20 minutes away.A little further away are Cae Hir gardens, Dylan Thomas's house and the coastal resorts of Aberaeron and Tenby.A visit to St David's is well worth the 90-minute drive.

little gem of a hotel - Rating 5/5

I have just spent one night here for B &B and dinner and enjoyed it very much. The hotel is in a lovely, characterful old building with a beautiful large garden where guests can sit with a drink or the complimentary cake and tea served on arrival. My room (double for single occupancy) was spaciousand well appointed with a comfy bed. The vegetarian options at dinner were excellent - I had a wild mushroom pate for starters with a squash and pea risotto to follow. We were also served canapes beforehand - as the weather was excellent these were served in the garden. Breakfast was equally good - a good choice of cereals and/or fresh fruit for self service with a range of cooked options also available. All ingredients are sourced locally (there is ample information about suppliers). Service was attentive without being overbearing and all pre-visit correpondence from me had received a prompt response. I will definitely be returning and next time will spend more time exploring the lovely countryside.

It's always a pleasure to pay Annabel and Steve a visit and these last couple of days ar eno exception.What was exceptional was the fillet on Friday evening. The food is always outstanding here, but we both had the fillet steak with the oxtail. Just sublime. What made it even better was that the farmer who supplies Ty Mawr with the beef was in the dining room too and it was really interesting speaking with him and his wife before and after the meal. What a lovely couple - he is the seventh generation farmer on his property.All in all another great couple of days in this lovely part of the country.

The evening food was very good and the breakfasts even better with a strong focus on local produce where possible. Tea and cake greeted us on arrival and each day when we returned in the late afternoon. Comfy lounge in which to take pre-meal drinks or post-meal tea/coffee. Small but lovely garden with outdoor seating for the better weather. I would have to try hard to find any fault but in the interests of constructive criticism our bed was very noisy (assume it was the springs) when turning over.

After a five hour journey there is nothing like a warm welcome,a large, clean comfortable bedroom, a hot shower and a sloe gin and bitter lemon served in a homely lounge. This was followed by a superb home cooked meal that must be worthy of a Michelin Star (in my world anyway). Rolled pork served on a bed of Bramley Apple Sauce and seasonal vegetables followed by an indulgent home made treacle sponge and home made ice cream. After a sound nights sleep the breakfast was equally indulgent and the fresh food which had been sourced locally tasted superb and would set anybody up for the day to explore the Welsh Countryside.

Just the Best! - Rating 5/5

We have stayed at Ty Mawr twice and, both times, have enjoyed the most comfortable, friendly and top quality stay.The welcome is warm, rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable and the food is excellent.It's difficult to choose from the dinner menu.Everything described sounds so good and you know it will all befreshly cooked local produce.The 'extras' provided - the canapes, sorbet palate cleanser and the coffee and petit fours - are a particularly nice touch.And I could spend as long describing the deliciousness of the breakfasts as I can eating one!The dinner, bed &breakfast rate is, in my opinion, exceedingly good value.So don't prevaricate and compare other establishments - book a stay at Ty Mawr.I don't think you will be disappointed.

Perfect hotel in every respect - Rating 5/5

From the moment we entered this venerable and immaculately restored and maintained old building we felt enveloped in a warm welcome. Complimentary tea and cake on the sunny terrace confirmed our first impression. This is truly a special place. The room, with its view of the garden, had everything we could ever need, most importantly of course a supremely comfortable bed. The ambiance throughout was one of sanctuary, surrounded by old stone and wood but enlivened by artistic and homely touches everywhere we looked. Dinner in the restaurant was substantial and sublime, all locally sourced produce and cooked to perfection. Not forgetting the human touch, Annabel was the perfect hostess, friendly, helpful and somehow always there at exactly the right moment. We shall definitely return.

After a long bank holiday drive we were welcomed by the owner of this quaint hotel.We ate beautiful, locally sourced and fresh food both days cooked to perfection at the hotel.The room was comfortable, peaceful with all mod cons with only the sound of water flowing in the stream at the bottom of the pretty garden where we enjoyed drinks on the terrace.I loved the attention to detail and promotion of local businesses both For the food served in the restaurant and local artists e.g. Paintings and pottery.We would thoroughly recommend this sweet little hotel to friends and family alike.

This lovely country house hotel (but set in the middle of a quiet village, with shop and pub) has it all.Such an interesting history.The location is fantastic - right in the middle of Brechfa Forest and surrounding valleys, but close to main roads, Carmarthen, Llandeilo etc.The food was amazing - would love to be able to eat here as a non-resident.Very comfortable room - and we are fussy about our bed!The level of service was perfect.We are fairly local and this was one night to celebrate a 50th birthday, but would definitely love to stay again (for the food!) and would recommend it to anyone.

The staff at the hotel are very friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. They encourage guests to use the lounge which has large, comfy armchairs and sofas and a wood burning stove. I chose to eat at the hotel and it was a great decision - the price included canapes, sorbet, coffee and petit fours (£25 for 2 courses, £30 for 3 courses). I needed to check-out early as I was attending a business event and they opened the dining room at 7.30am to suit my schedule.

The room was spacious, well equipped, huge bed, lovely bath. Food excellent, good wine menu. Breakfast lovely, good choice. Welcome warm but not suffocating. The place is well positioned for walks, cycling and trips to nearby Wrights food emporium, Llandeilo, National Botanical Gardens. We'd both heartily recommend Ty Mawr.

Great service in a peaceful setting. - Rating 5/5

I recently stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting my friend nearby. It's the second time I've stayed here and it is perfect for my requirements. Annabel and Steve offer great service and make me feel welcome without being too intrusive. The bedrooms are very comfortable and of course it is very quiet. In fact it would be a perfect spot for a very relaxing and comfortable break while also being quite easy to find. What I particularly like is that the hotel has comfortable places to sit away from the rooms so it feels more like a country house than a regular hotel. I enjoyed reading the paper in the sitting room after breakfast and sitting in the sun on the terrace in the afternoon. The hotel provided the prefect setting to entertain my friends. I believe Steve does the cooking and his meals are excellent. The breakfast is very substantial and the dinners are superb. I have no hesitation in saying I will be going back and I recommend it for a relaxing stay in a lovely country setting.

Gardeners World - Rating 5/5

We booked for one night to attend the Gardener's World Radio broacast at the Royal Botanical Gardens . The reception we received at the Ty Mawr was friendly and welcoming with cup of tea served on the terrace. Our room was large and spacious and the king sized bed was extremely comfortable. We ate in the homeland we were glad we did. The food was lovely and the service was "spot on". We had a beautifully cooked breakfast the following morning with plenty of choice.We were so glad we booked the Ty Mawr because it made a special weekend a thoroughly enjoyable experience. we would highly recommend it.

Wales 2 Centre Break - Rating 5/5

Stayed at the Ty Mawr for 2 nights to sample the Brechfa Forest mountain bike trails, before heading north to Coed y Brenin.When we 'rough it' on the bikes we like to sample a little luxury in the evening and the Ty Mawr certainly didn't disappoint. Very warm, welcoming and cosy with excellent food and home pressed fresh apple juice. Wish we'd seen more of Steve (the man behind the scenes who prepares the hearty dinners and breakfasts!)

Charming country welcome - Rating 5/5

We arrived at Ty Mawr later than expected having rushed across the countryside in the dark.It's not easy to find in the dark but Annabel gave us precise directions and we thankfully arrived in time to enjoy a delicious dinner. The menu was interesting and the food very well cooked.The wine was also excellent. We were impressed by the list of local suppliers and actually met the egg supplier as we were checking out the next day.All in all a comfortable and welcoming hotel - the only criticism I have is that the pillows were a bit flat &past their best.

Excellent - Rating 5/5

I am a man of few words... but our few hours experience at Ty Mawr made me eloquent! It was excellent, excellent, excellent!!! To be precise, excellent room done with taste and simplicity;excellent dinner with superlative taste in every respect (of course engaging with local produce, freshly sourced - but imaginatively put together) and excellent reception with a rather serious-appearing lady - but when she smiled! - 'Mein Gott in Himmel!' - the Heavens opened!You might think this review 'over the top' - but honestly, rarely do you find such integrity - and so my partner and I wholly endorse these statements.Thank you!Anthony (and Evelyn)
