After three nights in this hotel, I can certainly understand why it is appreciated by the other reviewers to date.
The buildings look like the country home of landed gentry - situated off a quiet road around 25 minutes drive from Brecon. Our bedroom was large, light, furnished in a classic style with a whole range of Molten Brown goodies in the bathroom. The sherry and biscuits were a nice touch upon arrival in the room. My husband enjoyed the small golf course - the hotel was happy to loan him golf clubs - and we over-heard lots of happy guests talking about the fishing. The food was lovely & presented very well.
Confession time? This isn't a hotel we would go back to - no 'fault' of the owners just not quite our style in terms of the atmosphere. My parents would have loved it - it was a little too formal for us. It felt a little like a private members club - with whispered conversations in pre-dinner drinks, ties and jackets encouraged for dinner, waiters dressed in morning suits.
I really would recommend this hotel to individuals who are looking for a hotel with old school charm, who have the confidence to enjoy feeling like one of the upper classes for the weekend.
