Norm and Rosie pride themselves in the running of their B&B and so they should. The room we stayed in was large with space to sit after a busy day. The breakfast is served in a pleasant room by both Norm and Rosie and ranges from a full English Breakfast to just toast and juice, all well cooked with home... More

A group of 4 of us stayed at the old brick guest house over Easter along the offas dyke route. Norm and Rosie were very welcoming and served a brilliant breakfast with amazing homemade marmalade! Norm was even kind enough to drive the walkers a few miles to rejoin the offas dyke route which was lovely. Thanks a lot!

The house is located on the edge of the town centre. It is comfortable and characterful, very quiet and our room ( Willow ) was well equipped. Breakfast was superb, and Norm and Rosie are very personable and welcoming hosts. I spent one night here with my son during a 4 day cycling tour, and it is clear cyclists are... More

Lovely friendly B&B in Bishops Castle, just down the road from the Six Bells Brewery and with extremely inviting and comfortable rooms. We had the Oak and Willow rooms (i think) at the top of the house and they were steeped in character. The owners were very accommodating and stowed our dirty cycles for the evening and welcomed us with... More

We stayed a couple of nights in the Oak Room. The room was spacious with a huge comfy bed and an en suite. The breakfast was great, including home made bread and local sausages. The welcome was friendly and warm. Couldn't ask for more from a B&B.

Lovely warm room, plenty of space, great bathroom facilities. We were able to take the dog with us. Fabulous breakfast. No trouble parking. We loved Bishops Castle and the locals. Dog friendly pubs, The Six Bells a few doors down was great and minutes to get back after a few beers! Great weekend and we will definitely return

I stayed at the Old Brick Guesthouse for 2 nights as I was visiting family in the local area. My stay here was fantastic! I felt like I was at home, the owners Norman and Rosie were fantastic. Stay was comfortable and clean and reasonably priced for the area. I would visit again and would highly recommend this guesthouse to... More

Turned up to be told that my room had been given to someone else. I showed the owner my booking on my computer and he confirmed that he had my name in his book on site this seemed to make no difference to him. The owner was rude and unhelpful and not at all concerned that I now have nowhere... More

We do apologise for the confusion and acknowledge that the situation could have been handled better. However it must be stated that your outburst in response to the situation with comments at an extremely elevated level, with abusive language included, in front of other guests was not appreciated. In fact, this was the result of a genuine mistake as the... More

We have stayed here several times. It is cycle friendly and has secure bike parking. The owners also have good knowledge of the local cycle routes. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the breakfast is always excellent with meat from the local butcher and toast made from homemade bread. I thoroughly recommend staying here.

We spent one night at the Old Brick and loved it. Our room was large and comfortable. Bathroom was clean and modern. Wifi is included in the cost and we had a strong signal throughout our stay. The breakfast was very good. I would go back.
