The Room was welcoming, the hospitality warming, the area inviting and the Breakfast delicious. The fact we could bring our dog along made it all the better... I couldn't fault it. The Car Park is small but had 5 cars in it at most and easily navigable. When in the area again we will definitely choose to stay here.

The staff were friendly and helpful, and the location is excellent. The parking is tight, but a useful addition. All in all a comfortable B&B, which is good value for money. A useful base for touring the Brecon Beacons.

Thank you so much for your very kind review Amanda! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. But, I must point out that Kim, who did your breakfast service, is not Jan's grandaughter! Our Grandaughter is 15 and lives in London! Kim is just a great asset to our business. No relation, just a good friend! Thank you...

A great location to explore the old town and walkways, situated close to the theatres, canals and town centre. A friendly and warm welcome from all staff, rooms were clean and well equipt with all basic provisions such as kettle tv hairdryer shower and seating area. The room was warm on arrival as a nice bonus. Parking is limited and...

A good value B&B near the town centre with off road parking accessed through a challenging but characterful entrance. An excellent location for either walking, running, or even tabbing in the Brecon Beacons. The rooms were fine, with plenty of hot water and good central heating. The landlady was very welcoming and the breakfast was first class. I would recommend...

The quaint feeling given to this B&B by its decor and the building it's in is extremely appealing, and my friends and I had a great stay here. Some of the rooms had en suite bathrooms with a shower, some had to use shared bathrooms with a bath but all were beautiful, clean, comfortable and more than welcome after a...

Centrally located in Brecon with off street parking (albeit a somewhat compact car park!)..The rooms were very comfortable and clean and the welcome very friendly. The breakfast was first class and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Best of all, it was great value for money, we enjoyed Brecon very much, it's a lovely and friendly place and we will definitely...

Stayed for only the one night but next time in Brecon we will definately stay longer. The Borderers is a quirky building with up and down floors, low ceilings and all that you would expect of a property well over 300 hundred years old. The landlady herself was very friendly. The property, we were informed, is up for sale. It...

Just got back from two nights stay and really enjoyed it. Room was clean, cozy and warm with a good size bathroom with a nice shower.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A 17th century coaching Inn - 1645, to be precise, along with all the old bits still intact. We are constantly striving to keep everything up to date, with the addition of WiFi etc. The floors still creak, and we get reported sightings of ghosts.(We have never had such an experience in our 15 years here! Dare we suggest that it may just be the proximity of too many pubs?)Enjoy! ... more   less
