Originally built by Bernard de Neufmarche, the brother of William the Conqueror, Brecon Castle is steeped in the drama and romance of Welsh history and it has been welcoming travelers to the town since 1092. As a front-line "marcher" fortress, Brecon Castle was besieged on many occasions in medieval times (including three times by Price Llewellyn, the last King of Wales) but never taken by force of arms. The hotel has been family-run since March 2007 and in that short time it has quickly acquired a reputation for the warmth of its hospitality and the excellence of its locally-sourced food and drink. Located at the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park and with stunning mountain views, The Castle of Brecon Hotel is the ideal base for exploring a region rich in natural history and ancient ruins. This is the land of mountains, lakes, dragons, Celtic hill-forts and ruined castles. The monastic foundation of Llanthony Priory, Roman Caerleon, the book capital of Hay on Wye, the Dan-yr-Ogof caves, the majestic Black Mountains. All this and much more can be discovered within easy driving distance of Brecon.
