Building itself if great. Inside at the bars & eating areas, really good, cosy, full of locals. Bedrooms. Not sure how upbeat I can remain really. Room 12 was dreadful. Firstly, it physically went down hill, with bumps under the carpet. There was no door on the wardrobe, so no full length mirror. Thick dust on top of the wardrobe... More

Great friendly welcome from the staff upon arrival. Had to move the car and find a carpark but very close to the hotel and only £2.50 The building is lovely, we had an evening meal in the restaurant which was delicious. Great value for money and huge portions. The 'legendary' breakfast was indeed that. All freshly cooked and nothing was... More

Who are all these people leaving negative reviews for this place?! I found it really very good but perhaps I had low expectations after reading the previous reviews. The room was clean and comfortable and had a good nights sleep. I had dinner and breakfast here, both of which were good with excellent service. Only negative was the lack of... More

I stayed here for one night when taking part in "The Fan Dance" event at nearby Pen Y Fan mountain. I got an early warm up for climbing up Pen Y Fan as I had to go up three flights of stairs to get to my room! The room was fine - clean, reasonably spacious and the bed was comfortable.... More

Decided to pop in for some food on our way home from our holiday as we wanted something quick and easy and from the menu there was many choices for myself and the family. As we were waiting for our food, I went to the bar to get drinks and saw one of the waiters sneeze on some food going... More

The Wellington hotel is an old building that needs a refurb, especially the room I had on the top floor, room 32. Also corridor carpet wasn' t hoovered !! Bed was firm so had a good night's sleep. Wifi wasn't available in my room so had to go to bar area. Breakfast was ok and staff were friendly.

The stay here was a sorry tale indeed. I knew the accommodation be basic but I did not expect it to be dangerous. Our first room was clean and functional and as darkness descended I switched on the lights. All was well except for one of bedside wall lights which remained dark. Clearly it was simply switched off, an easy... More

Don't even bother. Very disappointed. Look out for the angry waiter. Same quality food that is offered by other hotels in brecon. Toilet is an absolute filth. Cutlery isn't cleaned. Toilet paper rack is missing. 100% the staff is really racist as the service received by the others are so much better. Spider fell out the ceiling while eating. I... More

This is not luxury accommodation, but then it does not purport to be. Room was spacious, clean and had all the amenities one would expect. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine. For the price (£70 for family room of three), we were very pleased. Excellent value for money.

The hotel was looking tired, investment required to upgrade. Staff friendly and service good. Food was good value and wholesome. The only issue is - do not accept a room at the front of the hotel. Noise! noise! noise! hotel " hardly slept" located opposite taxi rank where people are waiting into the early hours after a night out being... More
