I'm there at the moment!! Maybe it's because It's a business trip and not pleasure, but I found reception very "going through the motions"! Again, this is a Monday at the beginning of February 16!! Just been over charged for my meal, only had one glass of wine and not two! Room comfortable , ideally located for Brecon town. The... More

Stopped on on off-chance for Saturday lunch, having been driving round the area. Welcomed in Bistro, and surprised to find table available. Good service and good food, with large portions (loads of meat in belly pork dinner; huge, home made pies; nice bit of gammon, well cooked). Only comment made was on 'catch of the day', where much batter covered... More

We stayed for one night in a cosy room which was lovely and clean, comfy bedding and a super breakfast. There was plenty of choice with 3 different fish breakfasts alone. We ate in the restaurant- beautiful fillet steak with all the trimmings. Staff were friendly and efficient. Will be back.

Spent the night here after the work Christmas party. The room was lovely with a huge bed. However the breakfast buffet the following morning was a little disappointing as the cooked breakfast was self service. They do offer made to order choices but not the full cooked option which resulted in over cooked sausages

Another lovely visit to this lovely homely hotel but sad Roberto the head waiter had left he always looked after us so well the lunch was superb but disappointed the men in our party could not have cheese instead of a sweet as there was nothing they liked on the sweet menu we did ask but were told no for...

A group of us thoroughly enjoyed a Christmas lunch at the Castle of Brecon Hotel recently. We had the Graig Room to ourselves, which was well decorated and laid out perfectly for our comfort. The service was excellent, the food very tasty and plentiful at an extremely reasonable price. It's the Third year running I've organised the 'get together' and... More

Arrived on Friday night before my husband went off for the ultra run in the morning. The staff were very friendly and had organised a special continental breakfast for the runners at 6am. The room was small but clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a good size and very clean (the shower was a bit pathetic but we were staying... More

We stayed here in October 2014 during my partner and I's anniversary and it is where i chose to propose. I had never stayed at the hotel before, but due to the location and adjoining caste it seemed ideal. The hotel itself is fairly traditional and so are the rooms. There is an on site restaurant and bar and the... More

We stayed for 1 night and wished we had booked another. Hotel building is old so size of rooms are set by building - we had the standard room and were pleasantly surprised by the space and standard of furniture and bedding. Restaurant was good - food was very good. It could be better -waiter / waitress spent ages polishing... More
