I and my family booked 2 rooms at a cost of £115, This did not include heat let alone breakfast. the one thing you can guarantee is a sleepless night, in the family room, due the constant drone of the bathroom extractor fan being stuck on. This unfortunately sucked out any heat that was generated by the tiny electric fire.... More

Booked twin room as it was the only place we could get for Rugby World Cup in Cardiff. I sent few emails before we were going ref early sign in, parking, and mainly the fact we could arrive back late at night so we wouldn't have to leave the game early. They were extremely helpful with my requests and gave... More

Seeing is believing. We were greeted by a lovely young lady at the front desk who seem delighted by the prospect of customers. We were swiftly booked in as we had paid online and given a set of keys, one for the 'back door'. The journey past the toilets, the coffee machine and corridor provided a cacaphony of amazing and...

Wow. If you really want to do yourself a favour. Avoid this one like the plague. Cold and damp rooms, no hot water and a strange smell with a cigarette tinge to boot. Heating didn't work so I got a fan heater, which was noisy. 9 o clock at night when I got there so didn't have an option to... More

This is a desperately run down place which is utterly devoid of anything you would normally associate with a hotel. I was faced with payment in cash up front; no other guests; no breakfast; no window in my twin bedded room; a smoky, disinfectant aroma throughout the dark corridor leading to my cell-like room; a damaged room heater and stains...

If i ever find myself returning to Tredegar, I'd rather sleep in the car than book this place again. Freezing cold room which made the bedding feel damp and 'claggy'. No hot water in the room and a nightclub at the rear meaning you'll struggle to get any sleep before 2 am.

THE RED LION, TREDEGAR, WALES Booked 2 nights here to attend the Abergavenny Wine and Food Festival as it was the only accommodation available at such short notice.
