Positive Reviews

A warm response to the rooms.

Very clean and well decorated; you look forward to returning to your room after a day in the fresh air. Teas and coffees are well stocked and are a welcome feature. It's a nice touch, too, to include shampoo and toiletries in the bathroom. Essentially, rooms are cosy, warm and scrupulously clean.

Food and drink.

Real ales in the friendly bar and really impressive. Generously portioned breakfast and dinner menus are just what is needed for that break away from it all. The luck is on your side when you stay here. Push that luck a bit further and the weather may be warm enough to sit outside and ‘drink' in this glorious scenery.

Aiming for the top.

It's difficult to find much fault here and whilst the pub is great, so too is the location and the proximity to Pen y Fan ... the Brecon Beacons' highest peak!

Negative Reviews

A few ‘ins and outs'.

It's no big deal unless the weather is particularly unpleasant, but you have to go outside from the room in order to go in to the restaurant.

Noise from a number of directions.

Walls are very thin, so prepare for the old problem of noise from neighbouring guests. Naturally, if it's blowing a gale, the roof will rattle quite a lot too.

A pressure free break

Another constant problem, when staying in many B+Bs, is the low water pressure, leading to a poor shower. Presumably, here, it's due to either the location, the fact that everyone is showering at the same time, or a combination of both.
