Stayed one night, and had lunch, dinner and breakfast. Food was very good, breakfast was included in my tariff but no skimping, plenty of it and good quality. Accommodation side was a little weak, room wasn't suitable for someone as tall as me, I kept cracking my skull on the overhead beams, the shower barely flowed, and the toilet flush...

Customer service not brilliant. The bathroom had a public hair in the bath and upon pinion this out it was removed but no apology for the room being in that state. Very low ceilings and beams which give it feel and character but also means bumping heads in the dark on the way to the bathroom at night. The dinner...

Having just left the excellent Abergavenny hotel we were hoping for, even expecting, another Welsh gem.

We pop to Brecon often and The Castle is now our only choice.. there's no lift but if your unsteady on your feet there are some ground floor rooms with wet rooms. Perfect for wheelchair users Breakfast is amazing and the views are amazing

The rooms here were very small, but clean and well equipped! Very nice breakfast and friendly staff. Not luxury but good value for money. Close to Pen-y-fan and a good base for walking in the Brecon Beacons.

stayed in room 25 which is a standard room in the front of the hotel. the room we felt was beautifully decorated but really a little small ( there was no stand on which to place a case, only one bedside chair, although there was a stool that accompanied a dressing table) . The whole experience was that it suggested...

Great location and very nice staff. The room is great and the food was very good. Better even in summer time as the views are even more stunning.👍arrived around 5 pm and it was very busy already in the bistro. Even locals and not staying guest are eating here. Would strongly recommend it for a weekend break😀
