The wife and I decided to have a short quiet break away and this seemed the ideal location. Nice hotel set in a lovely surroundings. Room we stayed in which was room 19 was very spacious, the only drawback was the two triangular stained-glass windows in the room had no curtains so if you're an early riser it's ok as... More

Stayed at the hotel last week paid £120 for a room 101 that was very poor, the bathroom was hidden in a wall and very inaccessible . The ceiling height is less than 6ft and I could not stand up to use the toilet. Door lock jammed, front door was dirty and covered in spiders. First night kept awake by... More

"Olde worldly" - Friendly staff on check in, lovely rooms with fantastic views. Bed comfortable, floor a bit uneven, our bath room was with a step up which caused some sore toes, to be expected in such an old building. Everything was very clean and generous. Food well prepared, substantial and tasty, breakfast room had stunning views and good food.... More

I don't usually give disappointing reviews, so it's a shame really about this one. I stayed here for two nights recently. The room itself was very dated and small, literally consisting of a bed, dressing table, chair, TV and wardrobe with a small ensuite bathroom. There was no desk in which I could work at or eat room service. Credit... More

Stayed here on the off chance. Staff were friendly and room was well appointed and large. Food was good although service was a little slow. Bed was large and comfortable although we were woken at 6am by the fire alarm going off despite their being no apparent reason, explanation or apology for it, then the phones alarm went off again...

Lovely hotel, modern room and bathroom, Very clean. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very nice, buffet style for your cooked breakfast but I selected scrambled egg off the menu which was lovely, would highly recommend and stay again

I live near the Castle Hotel, and having eaten in most of Brecon's many eateries, I can say that this is definitely the best food option in Brecon and possibly the only place in town with a decent wine list, that is also served well. The restaurant menu is good and reasonable for the well cooked, nicely presented seasonal food.... More

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
