Llanthony Priory Hotel

Hotel in Black Mountains (Y Mynyddoedd Duon)

Seemingly growing out of the priory ruins and incorporating some of the original medieval buildings, this hotel is wonderfully atmospheric, with four-poster beds, stone spiral staircases and rooms squeezed into turrets. Bathrooms are shared, and there's no TV or wi-fi. The bar in the undercroft serves simple meals and a good selection of Welsh beers.
