I stayed here for one night on the 6th September 2014. I had booked this hotel at the last minute about 4 hours before turning up to book in. I did not arrive until about 22.00 hours and it was not a problem booking in. The staff were very friendly and within minutes I was going to the room. I... More

My sister in law booked a carvery, having visited the Bessemer Hotel before, for my 65th birthday party for twenty relatives. The staff were very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. They took the banners, balloons and cake and took care of everything. Even sectioned off an area that made it look like our own party... More

Stayed a couple of nights in a nice large twin bedded room with lovely views over Merthyr. On arrival were warmly welcomed by a friendly receptionist. The beds were comfortable and the room very clean. It was also nice to have a bath, as well as a shower in the en suite. Good bedding and plenty of soft white towels.... More

Haven't been here for quite some time and I was really looking forward to it but I have to say I was very disappointed. Can not fault most of the carvery but for the quality it was over priced, far better carveries around for less money. The main problem were the staff, rude rude rude! From the chef carving to...

Attended her with my family on a Sunday afternoon for a carvery. On entering the hotel it looks like something from the 80s although clean and tidy. We were sat at our table and was pointed in direction of the carvery. There was three choices of meats all of which were lovely. Good selection of vegetables and the gravy was... More

Despite stepping back to the 1970's as soon as you enter the hotel, this must be one of the best carvery that I've had. You had a choice of 3 meats (you could have all 3 if you wanted ) and a fine selection of vegetables and 'real' gravy. Good value for money, good service. Worth a try for Sunday... More

Carvery was very nice, as always. There is a good selection of food on the main menu. Dessert menu should be updated now. Good atmosphere & excellent service from staff. I will call again for a treat.

The hotel staff were very friendly but the rooms were so noisy, the floors creaked so much that if someone walk around in the room next door you thought that someone was walking next to, you go to turn round and no ones there. The walls were so thin that you could here every word on the TV next door... More
