We ate here on Saturday whilst visiting family within the area. We received such fantastic service that we came back on Sunday with some more of our family for Sunday lunch. Food was amazing and great value for money.

I remember eating here many years ago when it was a local run down pub. What a transformation. Highly recommended.

We will definitely come back when we are next in the area.

We celebrated a low key engagement at Foyles with some family and were nicely surprised after mixed reviews. We had a lovey corner table and service was fab with both the bar menu and a la carte available. The cosy, country decor gives a nice vibe that is in between restaurant and pub with food restaurant standard. Great place near Builth wells where there is lack of choice and will definitely return! Thank you More...

We rang last minute and they were very kind to accomodate us for the most delicious 2 course roast dinner yet!! We were also given a complimentary taster to start which was gorgeous! The staff were wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed our cosy experience in the Hudson along with drinks after by the log fire. We took our time and will certainly be booking again very soon. Thank you to everyone! The Siddalls xxxx More...

The staff at Foyles, Brecon couldn't be more helpful.

We had somehow accidentally booked Foyles but in Ireland (not even connected to Foyles, Brecon)!

Reception did everything to find us a room, no mean feat considering it was Easter weekend & fully booked with a wedding party.

I would recommend this hotel. Our stay was warm, welcoming, efficient & attention to detail amazing �

My husband booked Foyles for our anniversary and it was fantastic in every way. Everyone went above and beyond to make it a special stay. Food was amazingly presented and delicious. The room was stunning and had everything you could need in a hotel room. Massive thank you to everyone for the perfect night away. More...

Me and my boyfriend had the perfect valentines evening here! The food was delicious and the presentation was stunning! Service was fab, the staff were very attentive, polite and friendly. The venue itself is beautiful! The decorations they setup for the valentines theme added such a lovely touch to the romantic evening, with confetti, balloons and roses scattered on the tables, they even gave us a valentines card to take home with us which was adorable! Will definitely be returning here, highly recommend! � More...

Stayed for 2 nights and found it friendly, relaxed, but with great service and excellent food.

Ate one of the best lamb pies I have ever had - would visit again just for that.

Nice courtyard too, and just a stone's throw from the river Wye...

Recently renovated, this place is cosy & friendly enough for lunch with friends while still being upmarket enough for date night. Reasonable prices and good food.

Lovely place small local hotel with a very nice restaurant which serves some amazing food at reasonable prices as well, food is great flavours put together well, well presented food on the plate, look good to eat & not to much like a piece of art work. We all had different dishes for starters, mains and dessert, all tasted great to my palate and again very good portions served up for each course. Fully recommend this restaurant and the hotel is wonderful of course, who ever did the décor for the interior had bags of style and flair for interior design top marks all around. All staff deserve a mention from the chef, kitchen staff, bar & waiting staff to front of house all very pleasant and happy in their jobs. My personal five star rating is worth it, as a lot of effort has been put in to achieve that feeling of pleasant luxury country hotel & restaurant. More...

Booked Foyles to stay but also for a wake after my Mothers funeral last weekend which of course was seriously affected by snow. Despite the tremendous difficulty in getting to the hotel for many when we were there the staff and hospitality showed was unbelievable. My mother had worked in 5* hotels around the world and she would have loved it. Nothing was too much trouble: rooms, food and and service absolutely first rate. Planning on annual family reunions at Foyles already! More...

Came to Foyles for a long weekend in February with my wife, having not stayed in 15 years, at which time it was still The Maesllwch. The interior, including the accommodation, has changed beyond all recognition, but the bar still has a community feel to it. The refurbished bar, restaurant, and function rooms are absolutely gorgeous, and have definitely been bought in to the 21st Century, although there are enough small touches that you still feel as though you are in a family run venue. The food, and service by the staff, was faultless throughout the weekend, and it was great too see all the staff smiling and relaxed, yet still attentive. The accommodation itself was clean, modern, and spacious, generously stocked with refreshments, and the bathrooms are lovely. Having both worked in the hospitality industry for 10+ years, myself and my wife are normally fussy when we go away, but I can honestly say there wasn't the slightest hiccup all weekend. Thank you for a fantastic stay, we hope to be back in the summer. More...

I was recommended Foyles by my b&b owner, for some evening food on a Monday. Looks great from the outside, it's even nicer inside! Food wise, I went for leek & potato soup followed by linguine with chorizo and mozzarella, wonderful wonderful! More...

Been to the restaurant a few times where the decor is nice, the atmosphere is quiet and the food doesn't quite warrant the prices but overall a pleasant experience.

We went to Foyles for dinner with my family - 4 adults and 2 children. The food was excellent and it was great to see a different children's menu from the norm with mini ploughman's. It is very spacious and friendly service. We'll be back! More...

We have various best sellers but are especially renowned for our head chef being particularly fantastic at cooking Fish dishes.
All of our menus have great variety and choice and can be tailored to specific requests.

All of our menus are designed to cater for all tastes while we offer options to suit all dietary requirements.

As Reception and Events Manager at Foyles, no two days are the same which keeps me on my toes and wondering what today will bring!
Meeting people from all walks of life is very interesting and I always enjoy helping our guests and customers when they have specific needs.

Foyles is very unique and being a small venue, the staff here are always wanting to make any occasion special and enjoyed by all so everyone here is more than willing to bend over backwards to meet the requests we get daily.
Our kitchen team are just brilliant and I couldn't possibly praise them enough for all of the hard work they do.
