Myself and my partner stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night to attend a wedding at a nearby venue. I would contact the hotel direct to book a room rather than book through an agent/website as you'll more than likely save yourself some money as we found out (the hard way). It is perfectly positioned just a few minutes... More

Thank you so much for your great review and really glad you enjoyed your breakfast so much. It's a difficult balance deciding on breakfast times as so many of our guests want to be up and out early exploring for the day and other's like a lie in, we've tried to strike a balance. Our beautiful Georgian windows do let... More

We booked this bed and breakfast at the last minute and were very pleasantly surprised to find we had stumbled across a real gem. Lee welcomed us to the beautiful light and newly decorated house and throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was lovely with everything we could possibly need including fresh milk - no UHT... More

We stayed for just one night at this excellent guest house but wished it could have been longer. The friendly and helpful owners, Lee and John, have carried out the renovation and decoration to an extremely high standard in a refreshing contemporary style - no dated floral patterns or chintz here! Parking is free and convenient opposite the guest house... More

I stayed here over the Easter break and signed up to Tripadvisor just to highlight what a great guest house this was.

Look no further if you want to find good reasonably priced accommodation in Brecon. The former Lansdowne Hotel, situated only a two minute walk from the Georgian town centre, is newly refurbished by Lee & John Cox and it is a Welsh Gem! A sparkling example of what determination and good ideas can do to make what was a quiet... More

This is a simply awesome new Guest House in Brecon. Lee and John have done an amazing job refurbishing this characterful old building - Ty Helyg is modern, comfortable and above all welcoming! After a day spent exploring the Brecon National Park and its many attractions, Ty Helyg is a great place to come home to: a well-stocked honesty bar... More

Had a great stay in this new B&B - first class rooms, very comfortable beds and plump pillows. Excellent local produce at breakfast. The guest lounge is very comfortable - especially with the wood burner lit, and the Welsh gin in the bar is extremely good. The drying room is very handy for muddy boots! Lee and John are great...
