We've stayed at the CoB for a couple of nights each January for the past few years, (to go to a commemoration service at the Cathedral). Always been good, but apart from our first visit we haven't left any further reviews. Our visit this year in January 2014 was really good and very enjoyable. Dinner in the restaurant, was one...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here for the two hectic days around a friend's wedding that was happening locally. Very reasonable price, and - although reception were clearly a little over-wrought - they were very accommodating. Breakfast was excellent. Be aware: there is a very big difference between the rooms that have been recently refurbished and the ones that have not.... More

The rates are very reasonable the room always clean with all the facilities you expect from a good hotel. The choice of breakfast is second to none. Everything you could want from a continental breakfast to a full English, and if you want you can have it all. In the evening you can if you want have a meal with... More

My partner and I stayed here for one night on an impromptu trip to the Brecon Beacons for a weekend at the end of March 2014. Very friendly and easy going staff from reception to bar staff and extremely comfortable spacious room with pleasant decor (Room 19). The full English breakfast was the best we've had in ages - beautifully... More

Really pleased you had a good stay with us recently. Our breakfast is particularly well received - rashers of our local bacon is just what's needed when your going for a hike up in the mountains. Thank you very much for adding your review More

Second time at this hotel. The room was small and a little cramped but adequate however it had views over a set of roofs which wasn't very inspiring. Decent bathroom let down by a leaking radiator which didn't work anyway. Good array of toiletries and copious hot water. Bed reasonably comfortable and quite quiet. The restaurant was good with a...

On arrival, we were welcomed and shown to our 'Brecon view' room - nice big room, massive comfy bed, beautiful views. The lady at the reception was helpful with suggestions about where to eat in Brecon. Fantastic breakfast the following morning - a help yourself full English with all the added extras. We both have healthy appetites and there was... More

I stayed here whilst on a business visit, the hotel staff were welcoming and very polite. My room had a great view for roofers ! I had a variety of pitches to gaze at but saw nothing of the lovely countryside. The room itself had everything I needed, the bed was very comfortable and breakfast was again wholesome. If I... More

Having read some of the reviews on here plus pre-judgement that this would be a bit below the standard of the hotels I usually stay in on the business circuit simply because it's out in the sticks, I was thoroughly surprised and happy. My room was large with a beautiful view and most importantly warm as the weather had become... More

We stayed for one night on the way home from North Wales. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly and helpful receptionist. We were given a large room with a beautiful view (we paid the extra for a Beacons view room and felt it was worth it).Comfortable bed and nice toiletries in the bathroom. We ate in the... More
