What a wonderful place to stay. Room and ensuite was warm, spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly and attentive to every need. A refreshing change from the average chain hotels... Loved the dining room and breakfast was perfect. The bar was cosy and the barman chatty and friendly. And so inexpensive too. A lovely experience of traditional Welsh hospitality....

An absolute dump. Whoever has reviewed this place higher than a 2 must be related to the owners. The place is disgusting, filthy and massively overpriced. There was awful smell (damp I believe) in our room which was so powerful it actually overwhelmed the stale smoke smell. Stained walls and ceiling, scruffy carpets, even awful beer, etc. If someone travelled forwards in time from the 70's they would think they had gone backwards. Have a look at the sanitary bag photo attached. It must be an antique. This matched the rest of the 'hotel'. The reviews on 'Booking.com' (7.4 average) are definitely not genuine. Have a close look for your self. DO NOT STAY HERE

It’s pretty dated. But a good location. And got a good nights sleep. Requested a early breakfast as had to be out early and this was done. Lovely breakfast. Good poached eggs. Staff helpful and friendly.

Would like to write and say this was a lovely hotel - but in all honesty, I can't! It looks impressive from the outside, but once inside, it all changes. It is a very old hotel and hasn't managed to keep up with the modern pace. The man that was on reception was very pleasant and helpful, but this didn't make up for the room once I was inside. The first thing I noticed was the stains on the carpet! There were two or three of these in different areas! The next thing was some mould around the bath edges. When I went to put the bedside light on, the top came away - it had broken at the wire frame -and just put back on the top, balancing precariously! The room I was in was at the front of the building, and being on the main road, was quite noisy until after midnight. The bed itself was quite comfortable, and I had a reasonable nights sleep. Breakfast was fine, although I had to go to reception to get the owner before I could order. One strange thing was the fruit juice was in bottles - Britvic by brand, and I have never had that in a hotel before at breakfast. The food was O.K. and seemed to be freshly prepared. There as a problem with the C.C. device, but this was rectified, in a fashion, by the time I left. I would love to say it was all fine, but unfortunately, too many little niggles, let it down. It would need quite a lot of time and money spending to bring it back to its former glory. Steeped in history, it would be magnificent once again if this was done. I don't think I would stay there again, but I do hope they can turn the place around.

The room was spacious and although on the main A5 was peaceful at night. The staff were friendly and the food good but the smell of damp throughout was the main complaint together with the dated decoration.
