We looked for a while for a place to stay in the area before we were recomended the Tower by some friends.
Unfortunately on the drive down we were delayed and arrived very late. We called ahead and spoke to the manager who welcomed and looked after us with food, drinks and secure storage for our bikes.
We had not planned ahead but they accomodated us with an early and excellent cooked breakfast so we could make the most of our stay. The staff proved highly knowledgeable on the routes we planned to take and gave us some sage advice.
Unfortunately one of our group had a problem with their bike that would have ended their weekend but the owner found a local hire company to open and repair it on a Bank Holiday Sunday early in the morning! If this was not enough he then drove him to the repair shop, waited and drove him back.
When we came back wet and tired, we were looked after well and relaxed with a friendly bunch of locals in the bar where we discoverd they also have a very good micro brewery.
The rooms are clean, beds more than comfortable and they have all the facilities you could want including highly important drying rooms.
Don't be put off by the low prices, this is not a hostel but a small hotel and gives you service that hotels costing ten times the price would be embarassed by.
It is not a boutique luxury hotel but a great base to explore from.
In summary, if you are looking for a comfortable, perfectly located (nestling between the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains), bargain of a hotel you will not go far wrong with the tower, we will certainly be back.
