Very well looked after thank you - really good breakfasts!
Rooms were clean and modern and the breakfast was good No hot water at 6.00 in the evening. No access to the hotel when we arrived on Saturday afternoon (having been told that the earliest check in was 2.00 we were surprised to find a note on the door at 3.00 saying " back in one hour"). We found somewhere to have a hot drink at the nearby national park but had quite a lot of time to kill which was not ideal after a long journey.
Very clean bedroom & bathroom, in fact pristine. Good sized bedroom and en-suite, well laid out. Very neutral, tasteful decor. Very comfortable bed. Excellent parking facilities. Beautiful rural location. Excellent breakfast. There was nothing I disliked about the guest house. I selected the guest house for the location. I would have preferred a hotel with lunch & dinner on the premises.
Friendliness of staff
informal and friendly atmosphere nothing
Helpful friendly staff. Good breakfast. Not having a restaurant means having to go elswhere to eat evening meals, as a business customer that's a bit of a nuisance.
breakfast was brilliant could n't get telly to work on 2nd night.
The B&B Is spot on excellent clean rooms with excellent service.
Size of the room/quality of the bed Old fashioned and a bit of refurbishment would be nice (there were holes on the bottom sheet.
Staff very friendly Bedroom and particularly the bathroom needed some TLC
The location, food, and willingness of all to help. Only thing was the parking and daily charges for parking.
Welcoming,warm and friendly. Breakfast was a bit bland as are many hotels these days.
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel . Our room was huge and also had a sitting / TV area. It was spotlessly clean, well decorated and comfortable.breakfast was very good and so was our Saturday evening meal. They do a curry night on Friday and Saturday - excellent value , choice and taste. It was all washed down with the House red wine which was very good . Nothing amiss.
Cenral location A bit dated
Close proximity to centre of town. Poor service from the hotel staff.
good room rate. The room was vey hot and we stayed on a saturday night and it was extremly loud and noise outside due to the hotels location but this cant be helped.
handy for town and country side
It was very central for the trains and buses. The hotel was clean and the staff were very helpful. nothing
I would say that the bed mattresses would have to be changed they are quiet bad to be honest. It would have been perfect to have propper loggs for the fire.
Lovely environment. Returned for the fourth time now. The cottage (Glas) represents excellent value for money and is nice and cosy. We always enjoy lighting the log fire burner. There are walks in the local area where we exercised the dog. Richard is a lovely bloke and will go out of his way to make you feel welcome. Shower and kitchen tap were a little erratic but worked fine after leaving them on for a bit.
The cottage was lovely. The under floor heating was excellent and the I really liked the decor. We normally eat out every evening but we just wanted to stay in and enjoy the cosy cottage. Location was great if you enjoy rural surroundings with the added bonus of a Tesco and Asda just a 10 mins drive way. The cottage could do with a clean lots of cobwebs.
Very homely and comfortable. None
Very warm and remote None
The owners of the cottage are excellent. Very welcoming, friendly, helpful, wonderful people. Area is quiet, green, relaxed, the house is so cozy, interior is just more than you expecting from the pictures. I enjoyed every minute of my stay and definitely would pick the same place when i go there next time.
Excellent accomodation, vith absolutely beautiful views.
Very pleasant owners. Excellent views over the valley. Good parking off road outside the cottage. Good walks for dog owners and walkers alike. Sat Nav says you have arrived half way up hill when the accommodation is at the top. The actual signs for the cottages are very small and could easy be missed.
Very clean hotel/rooms. very friendly staff fantastic service and a great comprehensive breakfast. None
The very friendly staff, the breakfast (best selection I have seen outside of some luxury hotels), the general ambience, the peace and tranquillity. I was only there for one night so was unfortunately unable to explore the lovely garden and beautiful countryside around the hotel. I was rather dismayed to find nobody on duty at the hotel on my arrival, and there was already a group of about five people waiting to register. A phone call soon brought a member of staff, but I'm not sure what we could have done without a mobile phone, and anyway they don't all work everywhere. I had booked a single ground floor room, but it was occupied and I was given a first floor double room. There was no additional charge and the stairs were manageable, so no real problem there.
The quality and furnishing of the accommodation was very superior. We were made very welcome by all the staff. The continental breaksfast was the best we've ever had. Nothing.
Very lovely, big house. Very friendly staff. Nice breakfast.
Absolutely superb place to stay. Pristine cleanliness. Food - scrumptious. The staff were wonderful - very friendly and helpful.
Great value for money for the six person cottage, excellent breakfast, and truly lovely staff. We couldn't get breakfast on the Saturday morning as it wasn't served until 8am and we needed to be out for the day earlier than that.
the surrounding area, clean rooms, good selection for breakfast noisy room, you can hear the breakfast room
Was made very welcome, an excellent location and very friendly service. The accomodation was of a very high standard.
We stayed in one of the self contained cottages.It was very warm and comfortable with plenty of space downstairs for family games or watching tv. Views were wonderful and it was very convenient for lovely countryside.Inclusion of breakfast was a lovely bonus
Friendly atmosphere. excellent accomodation.
Friendly & Effecient None
Rooms clean,staff friendly and helpful,and food great.what more do you want I will stay there again.
Clean, spacious and welcoming. Good food and plenty of parking. Only source of hot water at night time was from the shower for some reason. Sink and bath were running cold. All lights fused in the room on one occasion. Squeaky floorboards weren't a problem during the day, but when lots of people decide to trample down the corridor at about 2 in the morning it's another matter!
Very friendly, efficient and helpful staff. A spacious, comfortable and warm room. Very good value food and drink. The displays of photographs of the area in the past; these add to the character and ambience of the hotel.
Basic but nice hotel. Friendly staff and nice food.
Friendly staff and the room was excellent!
The whole atmosphere, nice staff, lovely food, large rooms There was a wedding on the Saturday night we were not informed about this and it was slightly noisy
Finding the place was a little unusual, up on a hill within a relativily new housing estate. However all my doubts were soon washed away, the staff definatley are amazing, pleasant people, nothing to much trouble, really nice and caring people, a real homely hotel. the bedrooms are clean tidy and acceptable. The evening carvery was real home food style, for a tuesday there was well over 60 guests and at the weekend I am informed it can be 300 a day, thats how good the reputation is..with quality and great value.. would stay again and recommend this hotel, a little unusual from your normal hotel chain but on a good side. Thankyou Bessemer. hope to see you again in the future. The walls are abit thin with the odd floorbood squeek, but nothing major.
Freindliness of the staff, and great atmopshere in the bar. The loud music from the club below our room until midnight.
Friendly reception on arrival.
Beautiful surroundings, nice restaurant, warm welcome. The door of the balcony does not shot. When we left, the receptionist was short with us.
The spacious room and bathroom, the pool and the linen napkins at breakfast. Wine list prices very reasonable. The noise from the extractor outside our room.
The food in the bistro was excellent. The size of the rooms was also very good with easy access to all the hotel facilities. The hotel is placed in a fantastic location in the Brecons too, some fantastic scenery.
staff were always eager to help in any way. facilities were on good order and clean
The food and service in the bistro was very good. All in all the staff were very helpful, courteous and friendly. Very professional. My room was not very nice. It was a standard room (no 12). The lighting was very poor with a white bulb above the bed and yellow bulb in the sitting area and was far too dim for a large room with only 1 french door. The bathroom smelt like a hospital. The carpet was cheap and nasty. The phone was covered in dust as was the bathroom radiator. However I was told they are in the process of upgrading the rooms starting with the superior. I suggest you check with the Hotel first.
Very nice lodge with excellent ammenities. We were very comfortable there and wished we had stayed longer. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Nothing
Great food, lovely staff, friendly atmosphere. Could not get S4C or BBC Wales on the TV which was a pain. No mobile phone reception (which could have been a problem)
Excellent food & service, attentive and efficient staff, first-rate location, very good gym and spar facilities No
Comfortable bed, swimming pool on site, food excellent Only continental breakfast included. Room had budget feel about it.
The Spa is great! Staff were friendly. Food was good. Didn't like the strong smell of the carpet cleaner in the room.
Conveniently situated Room was a bit cramped with four of us in a normal sized room with the extra kids beds
Spotlessly clean Comfortable beds Quiet Excellent breakfast & meals generally Storage for clothes not always adequate; storage for suitcases and drawers for underwear etc
polite and friendly staff - cleanliness of room - comfortable bed Only point of issue was only one armchair in a double room! Second person had to lounge on bed to watch TV on a rainy afternoon
Enjoyed our stay had to leave early as I was unwell Could have a phone in the room and may be a fridge
All very good None
Peace & Tranquility The decoration of the rooms needs to be updated. The beds needs to be updated, more staff
relative closeness to Brecon The hotel's food and service was very poor. Too many items on the menu unavailable. The food itself was, seemingly, not fresh and lacked quality and not value for money. Breakfast service slow and very greasy.
The staff were very friendly & helpful. We had travelled to Wales for a family funeral & the staff went out of their way to accomodate seven family members who wated to join us for our evening meal. The bathroom was a little dated & there were damp patches on the wall
nice homely atmosphere staff were a little slow and sometimes nowhere to be seen
No comment The confusion of whether a payment had been made during boooking or when booking out, was a bit disconcerting. I had no idea that I had booked a "Luxury room" it was far from that! The breakfast was excellent, but based on other hotels that I have used (Morgans), I thought it was expensive and very gloomy and old fashioned.
The log fires and the friendly staff. Service at Sunday breakfast was a bit absent minded.
Beautiful location, right smack in the heart of Breacon Beacons- no need for car other than to get there as waterfalls, whiskey distillery and wonderful walks literally on the door step. Room was fantastic (shower five star!), staff were brilliant, roaring fires everywhere and the warm atmosphere and enthusiasm for you having a wonderful experience hits you as soon as you step over the threshold. Really special place, well recommended breakfast wasn't so inspiring but perfectly adequate, Never seen someone advertise that their coffee is made from 'finest instant granules' but then, I quite like the honesty and unpretentiousness and the setting and staff are so nice, stuffing my fat face with hashbrowns and blackpudding becomes less important
Nice location and character of building The signs from Hirwan were not as big as from the other way and were difficult to see at night so keep your eyes peeled!
the staff were responsive and helpful and the setting is lovely the rooms are a little run down and they need to put more towels in bathroom
The rare possibility to stay at a country house hotel at what was a budget hotel price. The restaurant is slightly expensive.
Never recieved an invoice from my cash payment ,could not ask before I left because there was no one present ,there was also a smell with in the hotel I was concerned about leaving my car outside
Staff Uncomfortable bed, loud plumbing noises all night
Staff were very friendly The rooms were directly above the disco which was extremely loud until the early hours of the morning
I am struggling to answer this question as Ye Old Red Lion Hotel had no good points whatsoever - it was the worst accommodation experience of my life to date! Where do I start: The hotel was dirty from the entrance to the bedroom. The television did not work. The carpet leading to the bedrooms looked as if it hadn't been vacuumed for months. One of the stairs represented a health and safety hazard as it was collapsing. The bedroom was less than basic and in need of major refurbishment. The owners should be ashamed to advertise this place as decent accommodation. When I returned to the hotel quite late, an individual was urinating against the front door - I had to wait until he finished before I was able to enter!
They were flexible with my complaint and request the noise come from teh disco downstairs.
the staff were very welcoming and very informative about the area and th regulars were all very welcoming and made me feel very welcome a excellent place to stay.
None The hotel needs total refurbishment
The hotel is dated in decoration, located in a rundown area of the town and it could not offer food. If all you want is a clean bed it's fine.
Lovely lady welcoming us at 2am. We got her out of bed! Coffee and tea collection was nice. Showers were awlful. Sort them out! Cold water or a trickle of hot.
Good value and staff friendly enough, although I didn't receive an explaination about how I got into the hotel after hours, which meant I nearly got locked out for the night. Good value breakfast.
