Stayed in the family room after a long day's exploring the region - which is stunning. The room was basic, at best. The shower was abysmal, resembling a trickle from a drain pipe rather than decent pressure. There was unfortunately no happy medium with the temperature, either stone cold or blistering hot. This made for a particularly uncomfortable bathing experience....

One night stay whilst visiting family My room was lovely and spotlessly clean - noticeably so in comparison with considerably more expensive hotels I've visited! No view unfortunately Limited veggie breakfast on the menu but Carol whipped up the most delicious mushrooms on toast I've had in a long time Silly small juice glasses though chaps 😉

Don't be put off by the approach from the car park; this is after all 17th century building. The rooms are small as they've been converted into en suite, but decorated with character and very clean. Adequate breakfast and friendly staff make this a good choice for exploring the hills and easy access to the town. If I could suggest...

What a beautiful place! Stunning views, lots to see and do. The town centre has a mixture of shops and eating out places. Museums and sight seeing close by. We went for icecream, which, if I'm honest, I didn't really enjoy. It claimed to be award winning, but I really didn't think it should be.

This was a last-minute booking but a really pleasant experience in general. Everything you'd expect and hope for from a mid-range 3-star B&B. No frills but all the essentials are there. Very friendly and helpful owners and staff, solid full breakfast with basic continental option, clean and tidy room, basic en-suite and room facilities, staff willing to go the extra...

My friends and I stayed here for a Birthday weekend, to climb Pen Y Fan. We'd never been to the Brecon Becons before and have to say we were really impressed with the place and with Brecon town itself. The Beacons is a perfect location. The rooms were a little tired but clean, warm and comfortable and we had a...

This was booked last minute and we were nothing but impressed by the beacon guest house. The room was clean and bathroom was exceptionally clean. The breakfast was very good with a nice variety. A great little place to stay that is not too expensive.

Had a great weekend staying at this place! Lovely warm welcome. Incredibly helpful and chatty. The delicious home cooked locally sourced breakfast was a great way to start the day! I would definitely stay here again the only thing is i wish we'd had a key to the front door as coming in the back way is a little worrying....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Beacons was once a riverside farm and the 17th Century barns and cottages still remain. The front part of the building was added in the early 1700's and the house has changed little - apart from modern comforts and decor. The original spiral staircase, moulded ceilings and even the meat cellar (now a cosy bar) all add to the character and atmosphere of this lovely home. ... more   less
