With at least 14 rooms, this B&B is really more of a small hotel. The building is an old farmhouse located very close to the centre of Brecon with a large car park at the rear.
We stayed in a family room on the second floor, which had one double and two single beds. The room itself was rather old-fashioned, but clean and the en-suite bathroom appeared to have been recently refurbished.
A good choice of breakfasts was served, but only between 8 and 9 on Sunday morning.
The family who run the B&B were approachable and friendly without being too pushy.
We requested a double room and paid £62. In many towns I'd be unhappy about paying this amount for a reasonable, but unremarkable B&B, but the rate seemed to be competitive for the area.
- 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
