Brecon Castle hotel

This fascinating hotel (it is 'bolted' onto the side of Brecon Castle ) is perfect for exploring the Brecon Beacons and surrounding areas.

While our room was slightly on the small side, it was still clean and airy. It also afforded us some great views of the Beacons.

That said the view from the dining room at breakfast time (and what a tasty breakfast it was) is truly fantastic.
