THE CASTLE OF BRECON HOTEL
HOTELS IN BRECON, POWYS
Formerly an 11th century Norman Castle, then an early coaching inn and later the residence of the Morgans of Tredegar Park, in 1809 part of the castle ruins and outbuildings were renovated by Sir Charles Morgan to become one of the first ‘modern’ hotels in Wales. Come and visit us, look around our inn, bedrooms, castle, riverside and mountain-view gardens and our facilities and discuss your requirements with the events team.
Brecon Castle retains all the warmth and character of a coaching inn mixed with the formality of a late Georgian hotel. The Regency Ballroom, with the medieval remains of the Great Hall of Brecon Castle attached, is undoubtedly one of the most attractive and historic venues in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The mountains dominate the town of Brecon and provide a picturesque backdrop to ballroom, gardens, restaurant and bar. There are four private dining venues. Civil weddings are very popular and here at The Castle we have a civil ceremony licence for 2 rooms in the hotel.
We have 40 bedrooms providing a variety of different types of accommodation. All rooms in the main hotel are individually decorated and offer LCD TVs and tea & coffee making facilities. We will be happy to discuss your accommodation requirements and the type of room that would be most suitable for your needs.
