“Do not stay here!!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Book with caution...Up on arrival at this "hotel" we were told there would be no breakfast as advertised (and paid for!) as the kitchen was being refurbished....Room was dirty, smelly & stupidly hot. On arrival back home I have now been charged an extra £150 for apparently smoking in the room....Neither me or my husband have ever smoked!! Unhelpful & uncooperative reception staff & a manager who doesnt speak to customers is making this impossible to resolve!!! I would not recommend this hotel to anyone!!!

I booked this hotel as was close to my business destination and was cheap.

Surprised to find out that the main part of the hotel was closed as did not state this on their website, unless i missed it? This meant I was staying in the annex building at the back. I must admit that this did make me fear the worse although I was pleasantly surprised in the end.

The room is a little dated, but it gives it a cosy feel that the larger chains with their modern and sometimes cold decor don't always achieve. The room was lovely and warm, which was welcome with the temperatures outside being sub-zero. Shower worked very well and the free wi-fi was very useful.

I picked up breakfast supplies from a local supermarket, and ate in my room along with the free coffee provided. This was actually a welcome change from eating the same old breakfast that you get in hotels, and cost me far less than the typical £10+ you would pay for a breakfast.

Most important of all though, I got the best night sleep in a hotel that I've had for several years! Not entirely sure why but possibly because it was set back from the main road and so no street lights shining into the room. It was also quiet and bed was comfortable.

Put simply, I'd stop here if I were to visit Rotherham again.

A friend and I booked one night here at short notice as we were attending the Pulp concert in Sheffield and all other options were exhausted. We were told on arrival we'd be staying in the annex as the main building was being refurbished. So no breakfast, no lounge and no bar. I noticed from other reviews that this had been the case since January which seems a little odd. Anyway the room itself smelt of damp and was rather tired looking, the beds were small and creaky and the shower was very old. Other than that it was relatively clean. The noise from our neighbours was extremely audible so the walls were clearly rather thin. For the money paid this was not the worst hotel I've ever stayed in but you would expect a bit more for your buck. One has to wonder when the main building will be available to guests? I'll check back in six months on TripAdvisor and see. ;)

I have been staying at this hotel since 2011 for work purposes. It is good for room only, price is fair and very close to the town. Room is of good size, warm, internet is ok, bath and shower! Staff friendly. I would highly recommend The Brecon Hotel to people like me who need a room for a few nights a week.

Only thing lets it down is the hotel is set back from main road, so very quiet.

Rang to ask about visiting the establishment and when asked about the sky tv facilities was spoken to in arrogant and rude manner by the member of staff when I inadvertently called it a pub instead of a hotel. Awful, pompous attitude received from the male hotellier/ receptionist so I would not ever visit this place or give them custom. Disgraceful attitude to a potential customer.

Positive Points:
Clean
Comfortable bed
Free wi-fi in room
Dvd player in room
Free parking
Radiators in bedroom and bathroom which warmed the rooms really well

Negative Points:
Woken up in the middle of the night by some guests which, I presume where coming back from a night out
The deco in the bedroom was old-fashioned (Curtains, lamps, bedding) but, the bathroom was modern
