“Traditional Style Hotel”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Priced modestly at £53 per night for a couple I was not expecting much. However the room was large, ensuite, clean and tidy with tea and coffee facilties. The decor was a little dated. No lift carry your cases,up stairs. Check in done by a very pleasant well mannered young woman. Breakfast was very good and other meals from a large typical pub type menu were of a good standard. Able to get parking all night on street outside the door although there is a public car park at the rear of the premise. A pleasant place to stay for a weekend.

Ate here recently and was very happy with our meal. Most meals cost £7 - £8 pounds which was within our budget. Very central and staff friendly would recommend eating here.

We needed a hotel in Brecon for an overnight stay whilst we attended a family function. This hotel is handly placed right in the centre of town and anyone who knows Brecon will tell you that parking is a problem and this hotel does not have a carpark. You can park outside if you can find a space between 6.00pm and 8.00am.
This hotel was booked through laterooms for £40 for a double ensuite room. A friendly greeting and we were swiftly off to our room. Ours, room 30 was up 2 flights of stairs and at the back of the hotel. A small room that has seen better days. The floor slopes and is a strange experience. . A plasma tv with limited channels. The bathroom has a shower attachment on the taps but the hose is not long enough to attach to the fitting on the wall. However the bed was very comfortable and we had a good nights sleep.
We did,nt eat at the hotel but we did have a drink in the bar after eating out and the staff were very friendly and chatty.
Overall, this place needs a facelift and tidy up. The staff are a credit to the owners. For the price it was Ok for one night.

I recently went to a family wedding in Wales and booked into the Wellington in Brecon. It shouldn't have rooms and should stick to being a not very clean pub. Poor decor, poor furnishings, smelly and not very clean and thats upstairs and downstairs.

Room ok for price but due to misunderstanding with a food order they made us pay more for having less food!... Was suppose to be 2 meals for 9.99. They only changed one meal to the right meal then charges us the non offer price after we had eaten

The impression given by the outside of this property is not shared on the inside. Carpets loose on the stairs, potato chips underneath the breakfast table, fittings coming away from doors, windows that either don't open or don't close, dusty tables... A whole cacophony of small but irritating things that made this hotel stand out for all the wrong reasons.

On the positive side, the shower and heating worked, the staff were polite albeit very casually dressed, the English breakfast was served hot and there was free wifi. There is no on site parking, but this is the norm in Brecon.

Someone with an eye for detail who could follow up and generally smarten the place up is needed.
