Ideal for walking in the Brecon Beacons and the less demanding quiet areas of Wales, The welcome you will get at this hotel is outstanding. Food is great, service is great so check it out when in the area.

A very accessible and thorough display of fascinating local history of alternative sports, spa towns and more. I really liked the videos of stories from local people and the staff were really enthusiastic and helpful.
