Clean room and bathroom. Sharing a bathroom was not a problem, but could become one if B&B full. Squeeky doors should be sorted as you can wake up other guests when using the toilet at night or if you come back late. The pub underneath does not serve hot food on a Monday, which made it hard for us to...

This quiet venue just outside of the bus terminal is perfect for a peaceful and friendly meal or drink with friends or family during the day. There is ambient music that plays in the background that provides an enjoyable environment. This venue also has it perks for families with there being a play area out back for children to enjoy....

Lovely Real ale. Top location in centre of Brecon. Near the Morrisons for shopping. Walkable to all the pubs and tourism aspects. Friendly staff and lovely scrambled eggs on toast in the morning. Can't knock it.

The hotel offers excellent value for money. We stayed in a double room with a shared bathroom, not ideal, but all the other rooms were booked. I suppose that due to the age of the building, there is little that can be done about that. The location of the hotel is only a couple of minutes walk away from the...

Needed accommodation for two nights for a family bereavement in the area. Centrally located in Brecon town centre, with supermarket next door. Private Parking as well. Separate entrance for residents access 24 hours if needed. Free wifi which worked really well in the room (no.6) which is on the top floor. Old building, some steep stairs to climb, I did...

Nice welcome and easy check-in. Evening meal was tasty and good value for money. Bed was nice and clean. However from here onwards it wasn't so good. I waited at the bar for over five minutes before being served, the young barman walked past me twice (there was only a half-a-dozen other customers in the pub) and he was more...

Only ever visit for food so cant compare...

Wow what a place. Atmosphere a little odd but the food and service more than made up for it. Two of us ate two courses each for less than £15 total. The Lite menu is perfect for a lunch stop, just enough to fill you up but not so much that you feel uncomfortable. My friend had soup which said...
