    Very good

    The position is good for visiting the Beacons and the valleys. Bed comfortable. Clean and new. Good shower. Friendly staff. Early check-in/late check-out. Wi-fi.

    Local situation and outlook is unattractive. Food is cheap (pub prices) but dull.

    In a bit of a strange location - but greeted in a warm and friendly manner - the room was lovely with a jacuzzi bath - great value for money

    Nice

    The helpfulness of the staff at reception and in the restaurant, and the size of the room was slightly above what I was thinking to expect when I first arrived.

    I didn't like at all was that the bed was not properly cleaned as I'm quite a cleanliness freak. When it comes to hotel rooms, I think the very basic is to have a bed with changed linen and not see hairs under the cover sheet. The other thing was that they served dinner until 9PM only and also breakfast until 9.30AM (also on Sundays) as well. Location is not great neither but I can only suppose there are not much amenities neither is small villages in Wales so this can be overlooked.

    We stayed overnight after a family wedding. The Catering for the wedding was amazing...would certainly recommend it. The Service was also second to none with really friendly Staff. Breakfast in the morning was cooked perfectly and agaon by friendly staff.

    Can't think of a single thing that we did not enjoy.

    Nice clean & comfortable room, good TV

    very limited range of menu if you don't want to eat a huge meat based meal!

  • 9.6
    Perfect

    The rooms were large and had all the facilities of a much more expensive hotel. It is modern, clean and handily located for the town

    Floor boards were a bit squeeky

  • 9.6
    Perfect

    This was without doubt one of the best hotels i've stayed at for a long time, the room was fresh and clean, the hotel staff was faboulous and friendly, the food was awesome, the breakfast included in the room rate was 1st class, the bar prices were excellent, the whole hotel was great and i would def love to stay here again, i will also be recommending this hotel to family and friends.........

    The only thing i didnt like was the fact that we were only staying here for one night, def book longer next time.....
