We spent two nights here so we were well placed to walk and explore the Black Mountains and the Breacon Beacons.
The hotel is situated just off a busy road outside Brecon and there is some road noise in the bedrooms if you sleep with the windows open but we did not find this too obtrusive and did not stop us sleeping.
The hotel is very dog friendly with bowls and biscuits provided and the staff obviously used to four legged guests.
The food is excellent, using local ingredients and where possible vegetables and herbs from the garden. It is worth staying for the dinner bed and breakfast rates offered. The wine list is interesting and we had a good unusual Italian wine.
The staff were friendly and welcoming and the service is good.
Well worth staying a night - just a pity it is not located somewhere more picturesque.
