The hotel is marvellous, the only gripes are that the carvery queue took ages (about half an hour) but when quiet was relatively quick. Good quality food but waitress had an attitude (rolling eyes and mumbling under breath). The night staff were very accommodating and we had a good giggle in the downstairs lounge area. The room was lovely, except... More

The bad news; night has fallen and you're still in Merthyr Tydfil. The good news is that despite its unattractive exterior you have decided to give The Bessemer a try. My room was a decent size and was comfortable. The staff were very helpful on the numerous occasions I needed them (my fault not the hotel's I hasten to add).... More

Décor very much like my 'nans' choice lots of tan frames, patterned carpets and artexing but all spotlessly clean. Huge room, clean, no problems at all for the overnight stay Restaurant was interesting, had... More

At first glance This hotel might not look like anything special but you'd be surprised. I stayed here after a friends wedding held at the hotel. The rooms were clean and tidy (much better than some top hotels). We stayed in a spacious room with 2 comfy double beds. They had tea facilities. The bathroom and towels where very clean.... More
