Rooms themselves were what you would expect from a bunkhouse - bunkbeds. But with the added bonus of quite small rooms (4 beds), carpet and ensuite. Kitchen area had plenty of choice of cereals and toast, crumpets, croissants etc. for breakfast. But the real selling point on this place has to be the owners (the super friendly hosts) and the...

I needed a bed for the night close to the Fan Dance event and Beacons Backpackers was only a 20 minute drive away. Had a very warm welcome from Neil who went out of his way to make me feel welcome and couldn't have been more helpful. Food in the bar was excellent (venison stew and sponge pudding) - i'd...

These guys know hospitality! Great service great place and a great price. Great breakfast and the pub meals are to die for. And for Wales (and the UK), the beers not pretty good too. If I'm ever in the Brecons again this is where I will stay Filling out to make 200 characters now

“Rooms on second floor lead to kitchen and pub, so no need to venture outside. Didn't notice any road noise”

“Keep away from room 101 if you're superstitious.”

“Maybe choose the room that is separate from the pub is you want an early night. Remember this is a pub and part of the fun is getting involved and meeting the locals of the village.”
