After seeing the reviews I was really looking forward to staying here. What a disappointment!!!
The rooms and the hotel were very clean and tidy, but all single beds and bunk beds squashed into bizarre corners making them dark, small and awkward to move about in. Through out the night our room was an amplifier for every water pipe, chair creak or corridor walk.
We spent all afternoon in the beer garden - which was enjoyable as it was a lovely sunny day it would have been improved if there was a single beer or larger on tap.
The most depressing part of the day was the evening meal. We paid £17 each for 4 steaks which were terrible and when we pointed this out to the young girl who was serving us she didn't know how to react apart from a sorry. This was the same the following morning when on paying our bill we pointed this out again - the young lady was apologetic and very polite. It just felt that anybody who could do anything about making our stay better had themselves gone on holiday some where else. Unfortunately I wouldn't go back.

Set in its own grounds with ample free parking and located at the foothills of the Black Mountains, it is surrounded by beautiful countryside and breathtaking views. With its relaxing atmosphere and comfortable rooms, it lends itself perfectly for those wishing to visit the area to take part in outdoor activities or for those who just want to "get away from it all" and maybe visit the famous town of books Hay on Wye, with its antiques & book shops and its literary festival held in May, or visit the quaint market town Brecon to join in with its Jazz festival in August or walk the Brecon Beacons, then there is the Royal Welsh Show in July, in Builth Wells. The lodge has its own lounge bar, providing local and international beers and wines. A cosy restaurant with a delicious a la-carte menu serving seasonal local produce, which all makes for a great dining experience.
