About the hotel
The Usk was established in the 1840s at the time of the Brecon to Merthyr Railway. It has an enviable position on the edge of the village, opposite the former railway station and yard. Imagine if you can, how the patrons of the Inn would have felt when the Wild Run of 1878 spilled the Locomotive Hercules onto Station Road.
The Brecon to Monmouthshire canal runs along the 300 ft contour, through the centre of the village, about a quarter of a mile from the Inn, in some instances at roof level. The Usk Inn has been transformed from an ordinary village pub into a country inn and restaurant with rooms of excellence. The Usk has been completely refurbished in sympathetic style, returning to it the atmosphere and ambience of a traditional village inn. The spotless bedrooms are bright and cheerful, finished in a refreshing choice of colours. There are now 10 bedrooms. Each bedroom carries the name of a bird often found along the banks of the River Usk - Kingfisher, Dipper, Heron etc. The bedrooms are decorated individually with charming style and furnished with locally made pine furniture. All are en-suite. The Usk's location is as good as it gets - attracting a healthy local trade as well as visitors to the Brecon Beacons National Park. It's close to the heart of the Beacons, and also handy for South and Mid Wales. Guests can go walking, fishing or cruising the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, which flows through Talybont.

Away day and night
Met by a friendly smile.
Room was clean and warm with all our needs. Comfortable lounge area attached to bar and nothing too much trouble. Evening meal and breakfast home cooked and plenty on plates. Thank you.

Nice hotel; August was particularly cold but no room heating was supplied.
Food was good - haddock on breakfast menu was never available so my wife (who doesn't eat pork) was disappointed.
