Stayed here on a business trip but could equally stay with family / friends. I was given a cottage and it was massive! The wifi was weak as with most hotels. Staff were friendly and efficient. Breakfast was made to order when quiet and buffet when busy, though the staff helped a disabled colleague by getting buffet breakfast items for... More

Fantastic views over Brecon - great venue! I call here every time I'm in Brecon and have yet to regret it. Great service and excellent quality food from fresh sandwiches to a superb three course dinner. Recently tried pasta which was again excellent - staff go the extra mile which is appreciated!

We sat outside on the terrace, taking in the lovely views across Brecon. We had a very enjoyable light lunch, my partner opted for a Greek salad which was all very fresh. I... More

We stopped in Brecon on our way to Welshpool, I am so glad we got to spend time in this charming town. We walked the riverfront path, the town and visited the churches. The Castle of Brecon has beautifully manicured grounds, with great views from the restaurant and patio areas. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner here - as well... More

We held our daughters wedding at the Castle in May and had a truly wonderful day to remember. Jenny and Laura organised the proceedings expertly for us and everything ran smoothly. Excellent meal and surroundings. Just perfect for the occassion (helped by the sunny weather!). Our sincere thanks to all concerned.

There was much to praise on our two-night stay; There is ample parking on the level next to the entrance, including that for the disabled. The situation with views to the Brecon Beacons is wonderful. The staff were all extremely helpful, friendly and supportive. The bed was wide and comfortable. The menu was extensive; the food well prepared, presented and... More
