Could not fault the restaurant, but the twin room was not up to the same standard. Small and definitely in need of upgrading. Extremely small with beds up against the walls and only about three foot between the beds. Easy access to town with adequate parking

25 of my friends and family went here for my aunts 50th birthday. We went in one of the function rooms which had spectacular views over brecon. The table looked beautiful when we arrived, a lot of effort had gone into it. All the food was brought out at the same time and everything was lush! I had the sirloin... More

A large party of us stayed for 4 nights and we asked for one of our diners to have a small pot of baked beans with their dinner and the chef refused stating that she was too busy and that it was a breakfast item only... Not great when we were spending large amount of money at the hotel. Service... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. The accessible bedroom was fine ~ the bathroom thoughtfully layed out and well designed. Nearly all of the public areas of the hotel were easily accessed by wheelchair. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. I shall certainly return.

Really enjoyed my stay whilst visiting family and doing abit of business on the beacons. The food was great and the atmosphere was very calm and relaxed. The only little fault I had was one of the older women on the reception was quite grumpy and very blunt.

I called up on a Wednesday to ask about a table booking for Friday night. I explained it was a special occasion (a birthday), I wanted to book a table outside, we wanted a bar meal and we had a dog. I was informed we couldn't book a table outside but it wouldn't be a problem to order a bar... More

I visit here from time to time for pleasure and the occasional business meeting with a client. I just love this place for a quiet drink with my wife or meeting friends. The garden must have the best view in town and is perfect for a nice cold beer. My wife is a picky eaters and does find the menu... More
