Jen Parry, Roberto Calloni and all the staff went over and above the call of duty, they were amazing. The ballroom looked stunning, the food was delicious, it was the perfect evening from start to finish. If anyone is... More

The room was comfortable, though the flooring was uneven which meant the water bottle slid of the side table and. Toilet seat wouldn't stay up! The rooms were clean, ours was on the small side (though we did go for... More

Stayed here on business after a long drive. I don't understand why some reviewers have said that the staff were un friendly because I was given a very nice welcome indeed. The rooms are basic but this is what you get in an old hotel with lots of character. I ate in the Brasserie and had the soup followed by... More

We had dinner here on Sunday night last weekend whilst staying in Brecon. An excellent meal, well cooked and served perfectly. We also dined here with friends three months ago and again had an excellent meal, One tip. It can be very popular and well worth booking a table to make sure that you get in. Tried to book at...

The food was well cooked and presented and the portions were generous. Sadly our room did not match the rest of the hotel the decor was tired, the... More

The hotel is situated perfectly (although a little tricky to access) atop a mound to the north overlooking of the town. The restaurant food was second to none, with everything fresh and cooked to perfection. Looking forward to my next visit.

This hotel has lots going for it. Firstly, the location ,with its stunning mountain views. Secondly, character by the bucketful. It is let down by difficult car parking, unfriendly reception and some poor presentation in the restaurant ( uncooked vegetables, amongst others). Some of the staff are well up to their job,but others appear to suffer from a lack of... More
