Very friendly staff and great breakfast. Off road parking round the back was good to park our car with mountain bikes in, although they did offer a secure garage for them too. We were very late arriving and this didn't seem to be a problem when I telephoned to let them know. Will stay here again next year.

We stayed for two nights over a rainy weekend in May. The Old Castle Farm was a lovely place to stay; room was warm and comfortable with a good shower, and the size was fine. The breakfast was plentiful, you get to self serve for cereal and yoghurt, then order the cooked breakfast, they were happy to swap out things... More

This is a lovely friendly guest house run by a local family. My wife and I have used it many times over the last twenty years and have never been disappointed. We always get a friendly welcome and the accommodation and breakfasts are excellent. We will be returning again in August and do not expect any lowering of standards and... More

Stayed here for 4 night over the Easter bank holiday. Ideal location with only 5 min walk in to town, owners very friendly, rooms are dated but clean, comfortable bed, tea, coffee, lots of storage, TV, free WIFI and the breakfast is fab! Highly recommended! Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Old Castle Farm Guest House for 3 nights. The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming and the location was perfect for exploring the Brecon Beacons national park. It was an easy walk into the town centre or relatively short drives to a number of the major walks in the area. The owners are very welcoming to... More

Stayed here recently for a weekend’s break walking in the Beacons. David and Mandy are a friendly couple who make their guests feel at home. We had a comfortable twin room on the second floor, with a view of the mountains through the skylight (always useful to check the likely weather). A reasonable breakfast in a good-sized breakfast room (pleasant... More

Very friendly and comfortable family run B&B. The two rooms we had were very nice and roomy, which comfortable beds and great on-suite facilities. Everyone was really friendly and helpful for the three nights that we stayed there. Overall excellent value for money.
