“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2006

My boyfriend and I have just retuned from a lovely weekend in Brecon. We were both really happy with the Felin Glais. On arrival the owners were extremely welcoming and helpful. The B&B has a very friendly and homely atmosphere and the house is beautiful. We stayed in the twin room as it was the only room available. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed. The owners had thought of absolutely everything.

I didn't think I'd like sleeping in twin beds but the beds were so comfortable I didn't want to get up. Another good point was that, as well as having a jacuzzi bath, the shower was really powerful which is often difficult to find.

Finally, breakfast was great - everything you could want to keep you going for the rest of the day. We didn't have a chance to eat dinner but, if the standard of everything else is anything to go by I'm sure it is excellent.

I can't recommend this place enough. It's rare to find such good customer service and attention to detail. I'm sure we'll return at some point.

  • Liked — Everything was great
  • Disliked — My only problem was allegies due to the owners dogs but next time I'll just dose up before I go.
  • Tips/Secrets — Go with a big appetite for breakfast!

Had a lovely bank holiday stay at Felin Glais.
Its a great base for exploring the Brecon area - close to Brecon itself but also loads of walks, village pubs, etc.
The owners could not have been more welcoming and helpful - lending us maps and books and also giving lots of suggestions for getting the most out of our 3 days there.
The rooms were lovely and every detail had been though of (loved the big fluffy towels, and bathrobes!).
Breakfast was outstanding - from the full english to all the fruit, cereal, etc. We had the smoked salmon and eggs one day which was lovely.
We didn't have a chance to eat supper at Felin Glais, but certainly will on our next visit after the rave reviews from others.
Highly recommend a stay there, and we'll be back too!

I have had the pleasure of staying at Felin Glais three times, shortly to return for my fourth.
Apart from the magical Brecon countryside Felin Glais blossoms in, David and Chris Arthur, the owners, are the nicest people you could hope to meet.
You are served the most exquisite food - breakfast & dinner. Please eat there if you stay! You eat in the beautiful old Beast House. David is a magician in the kitchen and Chris is quite simple an angel - you cannot fail to adore them both. They make you feel at home instantly and they truly cannot do enough for you.
Many of their guests return as friends and I am half doubtful at recommending them as I don't want to not get in the next time I book.
Do not hesitate to spend time at Felin Glais - you will meet friends and return truly rejuvinated. A jewel in Wales' Crown.

Luxurious Homely Bed and Breakfast just a few miles outside of Brecon.
Gardens and conservatory over look Pen-y-fan and the National Park.
Rooms are very comfortable with a typical British country cottage feel.

The hosts/owners are very helpful and friendly.
Breakfast and the eveing meals are beautiful.
