We stopped in here on our way home from a weekend away and it was well worth it! The welcome was warm and friendly, menus were quickly handed to us and the special board was pointed out, and the choice was extremely good. I had the steak and ale pie, wifelette had the loin of pork and they were quite... More

Having booked a nice break away for my partner and I (via laterooms) we were so excited to get to our hotel. The pictures online looked great and the rooms lovely and comfy. Upon arrival it was difficult to recognise the hotel from the photos as it's currently covered in scaffolding. The carpark was not signposted and so I popped... More

We stayed at the coaching inn during a charity bike ride in the Brecon beacon mountains and chose the inn because of the location. John the owner was extremely welcoming and friendly and could not do enough to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone visiting the area. The rooms were spacious,... More

We had a short break in Brecon and stayed a few doors down from the Castle Coaching Inn. We were a little put off by the exterior, due to renovation worked being carried out but what a surprise we had! The food was outstanding and the landlord could not have been more friendly. It is also a dog friendly pub.... More

We stayed here for a weekend with a couple of friends and really enjoyed it! The atmosphere in the restaurant/bar area was homely and they served great beer and food. We ate here every night we stayed and weren't at all disappointed. The owner (John) is very friendly and personable. The breakfast in the morning is great, you'll really enjoy... More

Spent a few June days in the Brecons. Walking with family and friends. Self catering in a lovely cottage in Trecastle. One highlight of our stay a visit to The Castle Coaching Inn. Don't be fooled by the scaffolding and renovation work. Inside is a hidden gem. Friendly locals, attentive owners and staff. A great selection of wine to go... More

Came here twice with my 2 sons last week and had excellent meals. It's a traditional uncomplicated pub with friendly staff, great food and great beer. Slow cooked Welsh lamb was superb, portions are good size, we have good appetites and didn't leave hungry! Decent options for vegetarians (2 or 3 fish dishes and a couple of completely veg dishes...

We stayed in Trecastle for a week in a cottage and were literally 20 paces away from this Coaching Inn. It was very comfortable and friendly and the food was fantastic. We ended up eating there 3 nights and my 10 year old was eating the adults meals because he loved what we were having - a favourite was slow... More

Quirky hotel that has much charm and homeliness. Excellent evening meal and a superb breakfast. Made to feel very welcome and all at a very reasonable price. Would be more than happy to stay there again.

Yes this is indeed a very old inn and is in need of some tender loving care but don't be put off by that. The rooms were warm and bed comfortable. We stayed 3 nights and ate there every evening and have to say the meals were of a very high standard. We like to eat in the bar which... More
