Superb 9.0 From 34 reviews

Very good 8.0
The flat was clean and warm and the Welsh Cakes were a nice touch. The area is a bit quite but there is a nice Bangladeshi restaurant opposite and you’re not far from the Brecons or nearby Abbergavenny

An absolute blinder of a place.
I don't do 5* reviews but after staying in Idris at Jame's place I just had to. The room is clean and tidy but its not just a room. My visit had a small kitchenette and en suite bathroom all of which was super clean and well looked after. Before coming here I used to check the chain hotels first for availability, now Jame's place is the first choice for me whilst I'm working away. There is on site parking, well close parking around the back which is a bonus, curtains keep the night light out and it soon get's lovely and toasty in the room. I'd say it's a home away from home but I dont have the design styles of this lovely room / mini apartment. At the risk of making it harder for me to get a booking, really do consider this as it's a gem

Excellent room.
We're originally from Merthyr but hadn't stayed at Jamie's previously, always preferring hotels or friends. We were very impressed with room 4 and the kitchen facilities were a bonus, as was the milk and chocolates! Booking was easy as was entry to the property, we'd definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it.

Nice weekend in Wales
Lovely stay in Wales! The apartment is a good size, nice kitchen with utensils to cook own meals, good bathroom with big shower. Apartment is just outside national park which was perfect for us as we enjoyed taking in the views whilst driving to Brecon town about 25mins away and to pen y fann about 20 mins. Apartment is in quiet location but next to takeaway (kebabs and pizza) which was good also on outskirts of meryth tidvil with bowling, cinema and restaurants! Good location and nice relaxing break! Thank you :)

Hidden gem!
This is just a wonderful place. Hidden gem in Wales. The service was wonderful! Really happy with the gentleman over the phone whole helped me with check in. Cleaner helped with my luggage and got me a pint of milk for the room! Little kitchenette was ideal. The decor was wonderful! Very modern and chic with a twist of countrylife! I am very much looking forward to staying here again soon.
