A bold statement having not stayed everywhere obviously. But, I would be surprised if any other guest house would adhere to the fantastic levels of customer service of the Ty Helyg. This was complemented by a delightful breakfast and lovely room with plenty of space!

This was the fourth year in a row that we have stayed at this 18th Century bed and breakfast. It is conveniently situated near to the centre of Brecon. The individual rooms are all tastfully decorated and well appointed. The breakfast menu is exceptional. The house has a real sense of family and a nice feature is the "honesty" bar.

We received a very warm welcome to this nicely decorated and well appointed guesthouse. Breakfasts were delicious - healthy fruit salad to balance out the unhealthy but excellent cooked breakfast! Our hosts couldn't have done more to make us feel at home.

This B and B is clean, comfy and central to the town of Brecon. The Beacons and Pen y Fan are a bus ride away. The new owners are friendly, helpful and produce good food. And there's even drying room. Highly recommended!

The room is superb! It's like you're in a hotel. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is really nice. The breakfast is amazing. You can just ask for what you want. The B&B is just 1/2 streets away from the centre. I really recommend this b&b!

We stayed here for 2 nights and could not fault anything. John and Christine were very welcoming and helpful. The guest house is a short walk from the town and parking is nearby. The room was immaculate, very clean, had a comfy bed and tea/coffee making facilities. The breakfast was freshly cooked using locally sourced produce. I would not hesitate... More

Stayed 3 nights whilst exploring the Brecon Beacons. Super Bed & Breakfast and a great base for travelling around. Clean rooms, great breakfast and Christine & John were super hosts. We wish them all the best in the Ty Helyg. Definitely return for another visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay here, not only did we receive a very warm welcome on arrival, we found Christine and John very approachable and helpful throughout our stay.

We stayed here for one night whilst having a travel around Brecon. The B&B was absolutely immaculate, accommodating hosts, a very comfortable stay, great location and really good quality breakfast. Brecon centre itself hasn't got a huge amount to offer but I would definitely recommend this place as somewhere to stay if travelling through. Really lovely.
