Significant investment and renovation transforms a Mid Wales hotel which is up for sale

An award-winning Mid Wales pub, restaurant, and hotel which closed several years ago has been completely refurbished and put up for sale, providing an opportunity for new business opportunities.


The Lion Hotel in Llandinam, Powys, close to the former home of 19th century industrialist David Davies, was purchased more than two years. Significant investment has been made in that time by the owners to renovate and refurbish it.


Opportunity to own a successful bar, restaurant, and hotel


It had previously been run as a successful restaurant and bar alongside the main A470 in the small village, attracting locals and tourists year-round, before it closed in 2018.


Andrew Turner, a Partner at estate agents Morris, Marshall, and Poole, said the owners, Mid Wales Leisure, had invested a significant figure in the renovation of the building.


They used a professional pub interior designer to undertake the interior design.


"The Lion Hotel is a well-known 18th century pub and restaurant due to its location alongside the main North-South Wales A470 trunk road close to Llanidloes and Newtown. Since purchasing it, the owners had the intention of completely modernising and renovating before placing it on the market as a business investment," said Mr Turner.

"The result is stunning. It offers someone looking for a lifestyle change, or a family looking for a business opportunity the chance to move into a venue that is ready to open."


The hotel now includes a new bar and restaurant, two en-suite letting rooms, three/four bedroom managers apartments together with two residential one and two-bedroom apartments.


There are also five caravan pitched beside the River Severn which runs near to the pub. A stunning beer garden has also been created.

"The property has a beer garden to the side, an extensive car parking, place for a marquee to be erected for larger functions, in all the hotel stands in grounds of 2.6 acres," added Mr Turner.


"Prior to the current owners purchasing the property, the hotel was successfully run with a good reputation for good food and hospitality.


"There are a number of tourist attractions nearby within one hour away, Clywedog reservoir, Hafren Forest, Powis Castle, coastal resorts of Aberystwyth and Aberdyfi, Plynlimon range together with numerous walks, cycle and nature trails.


"The area benefits from tourism and draws tourists into the area for activities such as shooting, fishing, cycling, walking."


The venue is on the market for £695,000. More details can be obtained by contacting MMP/NL on 01686 412567, email or visit
