The staff work hard to ensure you have a good stay in Brecon. The breakfasts are excellent and set you up for a walk in the Beacons. Rooms are well appointed and comfortable and there's a lovely summer garden with a view of the hills for pre or after dinner drinks

Lovely setting with a beautiful view of the Brecon Beacons in the back gardens, lovely meal and staff very helpful. Still has old characteristics in downstairs rooms. There is a lot of history regarding the castle and grounds. It is worth visiting the Cathedral which is within walking distance.

We got a Deluxe Room and were pleased with its cleanliness and state of modern decor. The shower had pretty low pressure, but otherwise the room was great and the views were fantastic. I felt I had to write a review, however, due to the sour faces and attitudes of the front of house staff. On Saturday afternoon when we... More

We stayed at this hotel this weekend for a family wedding taking place a few miles away. On check-in, we were greeted by a receptionist who could do with a lesson in customer service and front of house attitude. No warmth whatsoever in the welcome and we weren't even told in which direction/ floor the room was. After going up... More

The rooms are clean, appropriately equipped, quiet and come a wide range of sizes and prices. We ate at the hotel too, both for breakfast which was excellent and for evening... More

Overnight stay 03 July, easy to find and park. On arrival had a friendly welcome and this continued throughout the evening meal, breakfast and check out, which made you feel your custom was welcome. The room was to a good standard and spotlessly clean. Food quality was fair in the evening and to an excellent standard for the cook to... More

Lovely few days here. The room was quiet and comfortable, the food excellent, the staff friendly and helpful, the bar well stocked, the local scenery beautiful. Need I say more? Oh yes: ask about the history; The Castle is actually built on to - yes - a castle!
