“Great Welcome.”
Reviewed September 4, 2010

WE arrived at the Old Brick Guest House and received a really warm welcome. Beautiful character property that has been tastefully and carefully decorated to a high standard. Our hosts were very kind and full of useful local knowledge. Breakfast is not for the faint hearted - fantastic. We left feeling we had made friends and will definitely return..

The bed was enormous and extremely comfortable, and the breakfast was first rate with home made everything and lovely local sausages with a hot peppery kick to them.. Our dog was made welcome too, for an extra £10. We had no complaints and would recommend this friendly comfortable place to any visitors to BC.

Stayed here with a group of friends for a special celebration weekend in March.
Good points: The location was very good for our purposes, just a short walk into the main area. Allocated parking close to the accommodation which only meant a short walk with our bags. Friendly owners. Comfortable, large bed. Nice plentiful breakfast.
Bad points: Our room was in an extension/separate part to the main building & was a bit tired and dated. We could not get the heated towel rail to work and the shower was luke warm at best. We did not use the towels provided as these smelt VERY musty as if they had been rolled up damp and left to dry and the room generally had a cold, damp feeling. I got out of the shower feeling so cold I wished I hadn't bothered! Having said this, I understand that some of our friends rooms had been refurbished and were fine - I guess it was just the luck of the draw, but based on our experience we felt very short-changed and would not return.

We are sorry that you had a disappointing time at our guest house. I would just point out that since you stayed with us we have upgraded the shower in that room and thank you for highlighting the problem with the almost new thermostatic shower unit. We have also put notices in the room giving directions on how to operate the towel rail in case it is not already turned on. I am sorry that you didn’t like our decorating as ALL the rooms in the guest house have been updated with new carpets, paintwork, furniture, beds and bathrooms in the past few years. Don’t forget that it is an old house and the extension that you refer to was actually done about 70 years ago! We have also taken your comments re towels seriously and enhanced the airing space in the utility room so that towels and bedding can be aired more thoroughly before being used in guest rooms. Unfortunately, our green policy discourages us from using the tumble dryer for all our laundry and even if we did it is difficult to get towels totally dry during the winter months.

Three of us from New Zealand stayed here for one night while visiting a relative. From the moment we were met at the door until we left after breakfast, we felt really welcomed.
We were in two rooms under exposed beams that were very comfortable, each with an en-suite bathroom.
The guest house is located in the main street, so is very handy to everything, shops and restaurants, and pubs attached to local breweries.
On the morning of our departure we enjoyed an excellent cooked breakfast

Bishop's Castle is a lovely town and we really enjoyed our two night New Year stay at the Old Brick, which is a beautiful old characterful building in the centre of the town. Our double room (Oak) was large and cosy and had recently been nicely refurbished, and had a very good size en suite shower room. Our room was on the front of the guest house but was nevertheless quiet.
Our hosts Rosie and Norman were attentive without being intrusive and provided an excellent breakfast including gorgeous slightly spicy local sausages, and also gave good advice on local walks.
In all we couldn't fault the Old Brick, and the price was reasonable as well.

Booked for a group of 9, excellent communication during booking process, and once we arrived we were very pleased with the rooms and the breakfast. Would definitely stay there again, and would recommend to others. The area is a great one for cycling and walking, and good value meals available in a number of pubs nearby.

Our party of 9 booked in for 3 nights for a cycling weekend. The rooms were great, the breakfasts top notch, and the owners were so friendly and helpful. You go a long way to find a better B&B.
