I stayed at the Dillwyn Arms over the bank holiday weekend as a last minute thing due to our pre booked accommodation letting us down and couldn't asked for a better place to stay. Despite us being on a stag do the hosts were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for you. Would highly recommend.

Love this place my favourite in Pontardawe they serve good food and fab entertainment. It is my local when I go out as it has a great atmosphere and there are lots of great characters that go to this pub.

I visited here before going to a wedding fair close by. We had dinner and a few drinks in the bar and it was lovely. Speaking to the locals was a highlight. Didn't mind not having towels and breakfast was very rushed as we needed to get out the door very quickly. Had a great time though.

I've used the Dillwyn before and was happy to use it again. The management were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable enough for an overnight stopover and the bathroom was also clean and of a good size. The on-site parking is very useful, as there didn't appear to be much available as an alternative other than the...

Arrived into this sleepy town to find out that they only give food to the locals. The restaurant was out of food and free watery soup was on offer again you had to drink all day to get it. Mind you a mixed grill was £11.95 and when I asked for it too was sold out. The landlord was rude...

I've stayed at the Dillwyn a few times recentely. Lovely people, clean rooms, decent beer, and a warm welcome. I had the best meal I've had for 3 weeks the other night when Hayley was cooking, a lamb shank, which was great. Many thanks, will definately stay again. Martin G
