Tony and Marc are great hosts.
The breakfasts were substantial and excellent, we really felt well set up for the day.
We were given some excellent tips for where to go, park etc..
There is free easy parking at the back of the Coach House.
We may well stay there again and would certainly recommend the Coach House to our friends.

Room Tip: Our room was at the top floor with the bathroom at the back and the bedroom at the south side agains...

A wonderful two nights at the Coach House, great base for our walking trip in the Brecons. Very high quality accommodation, the breakfast certainly as other reviewers have noted is exceptional (smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and lavar bread a new experience and fab), will be back! Great hosts, Marc giving us advice on walks and driving routes and nice to be able to get a drink when back from walking before going out to eat (Robertos Italian another recommendation)

My boyfriend and I have just got back from a lovely two night stay at the Coach House and I would thoroughly recommend it. From the warm welcome by our host to the fabulous welsh breakfasts and the spotlessly clean room we stayed in, it certainly lived up to it's reputation on tripadvisor! There is plenty of parking and yet it's only a 5 minute walk into Brecon town centre which made it the perfect base for exploring the amazing scenery around the Brecon Beacons by day and enjoying a nice meal in the town by night. And what made it a cut above the rest was the friendly and helpful tips we received from our hosts, which ranged from good pubs and places to eat in Brecon to the best walking routes for the waterfalls. Nothing was too much trouble and I wouldn't hesitate to stay at The Coach House again.

We have just returned from a weekend at The Coach House. My husband had booked it as a surprise for my birthday. When we arrived I noticed the sign said 'Contemporary' and wondered if this would be a good or bad thing as we tend to stay in more traditional B&B's and cottages. But The Coach House was lovely, really nicely done, it was contemporary but not in a minimalist and plain sort of way, which I was worried it might be, instead pleasantly surprised by how cosy and classy it was. It is on a main road but this didn't bother us at all as with the windows shut you could hardly hear it and it didn't seem to be so busy at night anyway. The breakfast was amazing, a really interesting menu, it was the first time I had tried laver bread and it was very nice with the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, just wish I had a larger appetite so I could have finished it all off!!

We've just returned from a terrific two night stay at the Coach House. Any reservations of being in a double room on the road vanished in a nano-second given the convenient location, friendly welcome and a room that was peaceful, tasteful and immaculate with a super deep tub (complete with bath salts!) to sink into after a long day walking. The breakfasts were to die for: the Welsh Rarebit and Eggs Brychan were a feast for both eyes and belly and kept us fully fueled for walking. Highly recommended.

We have just spent 3 nights over Easter at this lovely B&B. The rooms are clean and decorated in a nice modern style. I liked how each day the room was tidied, new towels provided, fresh water, biscuits and coffee all replenished, a touch which not all hotels do. The owners make you feel extremely welcome and cannot do enough for you. We were even treated to a cream egg on Easter Sunday and a hot cross bun with our breakfast. Breakfast itself was a delight - extremely tasty and I would recommend the Welsh Rarebit - delicious! Brecon is a lovely town to visit with some fantastic walking on the doorstep. We enjoyed Zeeras indian restaurant and the Fellin Fach Griffin (short taxi) was superb. All in all a great easter weekend. Thank you so much!

Room Tip: Room 7 was on the 2nd floor, large king size bed
