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. This should have been a warning, and was but we had arranged to meet family here so we went with it. First impressions weren't good, and on entering the room itself the... More

Twin room booked for just 1 night (thank goodness). Bed and bedding clean but this hotel is well past its sell by date and the room was not particularly clean. £45 for a twin so not expensive but i did not enjoy the experience.

If you are the sort of person who doesn't mind where you are staying regardless of the condition of the place then this is for you! The Ritz it isn't,but there again you only get what you pay for, and with this place it's not a lot! The whole place could do with a total spring clean and a lick... More

I stay in Wales at least a few times a month, as I work across the whole of Wales. This is a no thrills hotel; don't expect 5 star quality for £30. The room was generally tidy, could use a lick of paint and spring clean, but it was dry, warm and comes with tea/coffee machine in corridor. Staff were... More

I am an easy going person and just wanted a cheap room to sleep in as we were going to a wedding night do in Crickhowell. The room was clean, tidy had a decent shower with hot water and the tv worked. Tredegar has absolutely nothing in the town and although late rooms said it was 6.8 miles from Crickhowell,... More
