Booked three days at the hotel as our daughter had stayed here. We are so glad we made this decision, a group of us had a brilliant time. The rooms had been refurbished & were so clean & comfortable.

Food @ this venue was good, although service @ breakfast was very average. Room was okay overlooking Brecon " High Street". Always thought Brecon was a nice quiet town? Umm not really, loads of noisy drunks roaming the high street throughout the night. Then 7.15am Powys council woke us up with their petrol motored leaf blowers outside hotel. Our room... More

Rooms were very shabby and dated, with cracks in the walls and ripped wallpaper. Only one woman seating and serving people breakfast, tea was stewed and sausage on the breakfast was awful! Other than that, staff were all very friendly.
