Stayed for a couple of nights while attending a funeral. Found the staff very helpful and friendly. The room was comfortable and the bathroom clean. It is slightly noisy as you could hear people moving in neighbouring rooms. Ate in the carvery which was very popular. Liked the individual booths so we were not bothered by some of the larger...

Good base for Bike Park Wales - Don't expect much and you won't be upset. For £60 a night for a double room you can't really complain. Most rooms seem to have a double bed and a single bed for those wanting to share. The hotel has dated decor, in reception, bar, dining room and the bedrooms. We had a...

The title says it all! There is no better place to have a carvery/ dinner in Merthyr! Its so reasonably priced you really cant fault it. I would reccomend that anyone who loves a sunday dinner goes there immediately and the mash is out of this world!

The Bessemer Hotel is on the eastern outskirts of Merthyr in a relatively quiet area. The staff are very pleasant especially the young lady who had to make several trips up and down the stairs sorting out a problem with our room key. The room was comfortable and adequately furnished. My bed was alright but my son's bed was rather...

Nice overnight stay, friendly welcome and comfy, very clean rooms. Nice quiet area, breakfast was continental but more than adequate. Overall a nice relaxing overnight stay. Good free wifi. Try the Indian restaurant up the road called Qmin, great food.

I stay at the Bessemer hotel on a regular basis while working in Merthyr Tydfil providing its not fully booked. The rooms are clean with good décor and comfy beds that are as good as the Premier inn. All the staff in the hotel are very efficient and always have a smile for you. The restaurant has a goo selection...

Have visited many times and roast has always been nice, you do have to queue for a while as it is self serve carvery. Have visited once for an evening meal (chips gammon) etc but wouldn't go again as food was not that good. Best for roast dinners.
