When we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by a very friendly gentleman who really made us feel at home straight away. He ran us through the usual stuff (fire exits, breakfast, bar location etc). before showing us the room. First impressions of the hotel were great; the bar was modern and light, the restaurant looked really clean and... More

Arrived at the hotel to be told they had double booked me (even though I booked over 3 months in advance) so said for me to go to a different hotel in Brecon. The other hotel weren't aware of this so when I checked out they wanted to charge their rates - £20 more. The George tried to refuse to... More

After reading trip advisor reviews we were sceptical about our choice as we had booked first, checked out reviews AFTER. Many other reviews were negative, snobbish & very unfair. On arrival we were greeted by kind & friendly staff and yes there were frayed carpets & wonky pictures but that reflected the age, character & history of the wonderful building... More

We stayed at this hotel in February- I will never return to this hotel again! The rooms are horrid, the place has loads of character but is simply run down. The manager is so rude and how staff tolerate him I don't know. Constantly grumpy and simply barking at you if you asked a question about food... We left and... More

Dear Travel T The George underwent a change of management early March 2015. It is difficult for me to comment on your review of nearly 3 months ago, but if I can be of assistance my email is enquiries@george-hotel.com. Many thanks Matthew Hadfield More

Good points: friendly staff and great breakfast Neutral points: room ok, reasonably spacious, fairly clean, wifi worked Not so good: very small tv Major Negatives: everywhere shabby and tatty, insufficient parking places, very grubby, musty-smelling bathroom (see photo). Must be nicer places to stay for the same money.

We were in Brecon National Park for a weekend of walking, and picked the George Hotel as the base to stay for a night. My first impression was that it looked like the old hotel from the file ‘Hot Fuzz’. The staff were friendly, and the food looked good, however I didn't try it. My room ‘Number 9’ was in... More

Stayed here for a family gathering in March 2015. We had 3 rooms in total. not one would be considered acceptable. Glad we were only there one night! On checking in we asked about parking, all we had in anyway of an answer was a shrug of the shoulders. Ended up in the supermarket next door which involved a early... More

We stayed here over Easter, and although I was less than impressed with our family room on the top floor, we did ultimately enjoy our trip thanks to the local area, good weather and the hotel breakfast! We arrived and found the hotel was very old, which we love, but in need of some refurbishment on the rather grand staircase... More

Booked this hotel without reading any reviews, as the photos of the rooms on the website looked fine, and the description as "comfortable rooms, modern bathrooms" were all we expected for the mid range price we paid. We didn't check out the room until the evening, at which point it was too late to change as we had a tired... More

Dear Sian509 Thank-you for your feedback, and I do apologise for showing you to your room before it had been finished by house keeping. We will be having a small face-lift on the rooms starting on Monday and our owners are having a full re-furbishment starting in the summer. If you would like to return to us after that please...
