AB18-20 rooms due to be refurbished - heavily discounted until they are

The Castle > Our Bedrooms > Family Apartments

Older non-refurbished rooms - budget hostel standard

B&B £75 only for 2 in AB18
£50/ night B&B in AB19 & 20 when shared with AB18

If you are attending as a guest of a wedding, kindly note AB18-20 can only be used as overflow rooms once the wedding couple have met their quota of en-suite rooms. Most of our wedding packages require the Bride to fill a set number of en-suite rooms. If you are a bride reviewing our rooms, and have found this page, please refer to the Ensure 50 guests can fit into the en-suites page on this website to view the table showing the en-suite rooms suitable for wedding guests at the standard B&B tariff.

AB18-20, along with Nurses Block rooms, should only be used on the understanding they are hostel standard and do not currently form part of the castle's en-suites and are not part of our 3 star tourism grading. AB18-20 are due to become part of the en-suite selection, probably in late 2018, but will be turned into either one large en-suite room or two smaller en-suites, not three small rooms as at present. Until then they may be used as budget rooms once the Wedding Package en-suite room usage quota is achieved. Or they may be booked by any general B&B guest seeking a bargain 'one night' stay.

AB18 very tatty en-suite shared with AB19 and AB20
AB18 very tatty basic en-suite shared with AB19 and AB20
AB20, vry basic non-en-suite - use as overflow family extension to AB18
For 2017 and Summer 2018, these 3 hostel standard rooms offer overflow B&B for wedding guests and anyone else wanting a budget stay. They can also be used by families who want a 'budget break' in the Brecon Beacons. Use these rooms once the standard en-suites are full.

AB18-20 are Budget B&B, the cheapest of cheap B&B you are likely to ever find in a castle!

AB18 has a bathroom in the corridor immediately outside AB18. Its bathroom can be shared with AB19 and AB20 to make the three rooms into a budget family room combination for 4 - 6 persons (8 with sofa-bed in AB20).

AB18 can also be let out as an en-suite by closing the door between its bathroom and the corridor to AB19 and AB20.

Tariff - General B&B guests:

  • B&B rate reduced from standard weekend tariff of £150.00 / room for an en-suite to £75/ room night one (weekends and weekdays), and to £50 for the second and each subsequent consecutive night on a longer break.

  • AB 19 & 20 when added to AB18 for a group / family booking, are £25/B&B per adult based on two sharing (£50/ room) or £15/B&B per child below age 12 based on two sharing (£30/ room).

Tariff - Wedding Guests Overflow:

  • When 2-3 rooms used, AB18-20 can be let at £30 B&B / adult (same as the Nurses Block) based on two sharing each room, once the wedding is above their Wedding Package Quota for en-suite usage at standard tariff. If only one room is used the general B&B tariff above applies to wedding guests also.

Kindly note:

1. Condition of AB18-20 is 'old'. AB18 used to be (in estate agency parlance) 'dual aspect', before one window (shown in top picture) was concreted in to allow for a higher roof-line for neighbouring room AB13 - now being converted into a luxury en-suite.

2. As AB18-20 are next on the list to be converted, they will eventually become two standard en-suites, or one larger more luxurious open plan en-suite. They're available as 'budget' B&B only for 2017/2018 bookings. We can't accept bookings for 2019 yet as we do not know what the final room arrangement will be, nor when it will be finished.
AB20 and AB19 are sometimes used as sleep-over staff rooms on wedding nights, by staff working back-to-back shifts. This allows AB18 to be used as a self-contained en-suite by closing the dividing door in corridor, making the bathroom exclusive to AB18 - for just £75 B&B for two, for one night.

Bathroom has plastic window sills and is not up to usual castle standard but is serviceable and has a bath and separate shower unit. Floor is 'pretty in pink' lino.
AB20 sofa bed - only use this as a family room facility with AB18
AB19, adequate room if shared as a family room combination with AB18
