Easily found next to the Theatre with plenty of parking nearby. Staff were friendly and we were off on our 8 seater boat within a few minutes. Clean and comfortable little boat moves along at suitably gentille speed. A great activity, would do this again.

Can't remember cost but it was very reasonable. It is not near the Castle Hotel. It is next to the theatre over the other side of Brecon. Probably a 10 - 15 minute walk from the Castle Hotel.
