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.

Staff turned out top be the best thing about the hotel, Delyth, particularly, looked after us and a large group for an evening meal very well. All staff were friendly and helpful even when busy. Room was basic but Ok. Bathroom door hinge needs fixing (reported to staff) and the basin plug was unreliable in its performance. Staff had tried... More

We were somewhat disconcerted upon arrival as the reception area is also the bar. The room was in a mess when we arrived at 4.00p.m. having been given the key to climb up some severely steep steps to get to it on the second floor. We were given this economy room as, at time of booking, it was the only... More

We stayed 2 nights. First night put in small double. Very hot room with no air. Window opened about an inch. Generator running outside window all night. Very uncomfortable bed. Asked to be moved for second night and given a lovely bright larger airy room at front. So if your not happy then say. Breakfast on second morning was dreadful.... More

The Wellington was our first restaurant we tried when moving to Wales some years ago. We always enjoyed the restaurant due to its rustic style and down to earth food. Staff were always friendly and attentive. Hotel not used so can only revue the restaurant which is open to all non residential which is useful. So if a basic well... More

I hadn’t read the previous reviews before my wife and I visited the Wellington. Bad Mistake. You will note that I very rarely rate a place “poor”. In fact this experience reminded me directly of my last “poor” rating two and a half years ago in a similar pub (in New Zealand). A quiet evening in Brecon seemed to mean... More

Right in the centre of the town, so great for shopping. Limited parking right outside, but a reduced fee is available at a car park not too far away. The hotel is a busy, popular place to eat and drink and the menu and food looked good. We were staying for a wedding at a location nearby, so we didn't... More
