Everything was fine with this hotel but can I suggest you give breakfast a miss, really not worth bothering. Lovely deck outside where we enjoyed the evening sunshine. Location easy to find and near the lovely Brecon Beacons.

Simply the best. The best carverry in Wales bar none It's a family favourite of ours mainly because of the quality of the food. The mash is to die for and its real potatoes not powder. So if like us you don't expect powder mash in your carverry you will enjoy it here

We were very happy with the accommodation. Friendly staff. Everything you needed. Great dinning area.The roast dinners were very nice. Loved the Yorkshire pudding. Very clean. Plenty of parking area. We would defiantly recommend to any one.

Fantastic service and a great atmosphere with very polite and friendly staff. I couldn't find any fault with this 3 star hotel and the power shower is the best I have ever used. I would highly recommend a stay here. A very good breakfast and a good price.

Haven't been to the BESSEMER for a few years, but it's still as good as I remember!! Choice of 3 meats, lots of fresh cooked veg!! Good service and organisation!! Really enjoyed it!! Few different options for starters, and a dessert menu! Went for the 4.30pm sitting, very busy and loud in conservatory.

I pressed the bell at the deserted reception desk when I arrived but despite the sound of chattering voices heard behind nobody appeared for about 10 minutes. The swipe card that I was given for my room would not activate so I had to return again to the 'ghost' reception area. Again I pressed the bell and waited... and waited....

Stayed here for before a walk of the Brecon Beacons. On arrival we waited a good 10 mins at reception before being greeted, not a great start. Hotel in general was dated and seemed a little unclean. Room was also very dated and the bathroom had a weird smell that I can only describe as a vomit like smell. Beds...

Visited here a few times and the roast has always been good (aside from waiting to be told when your table should go up to queue for food). When visiting one evening and ordering chips etc however I didn't find the food vey nice and quite expensive too.
