I love the Bessemers hotel. They cater for all occasions. And the staff are amazingly polite and courteous, best in Wales.... I held my wedding party here and everything was handled professionally and with great care. The manager janie deserves all her praises because she is worth it. Every single person that works there is worth their weight in gold.... More

Stayed one night to attend a function at the hotel so thought we'd give it a try and returned a few hours after checking out for lunch with family who live locally. The good: In all areas (restaurant, bar, function suite, reception) the staff are friendly and competent. The place is reasonably clean (there was someone's rizlas left in our... More

Very welcoming hotel - reception and breakfast staff all tried to please the 'customer'. The room I was in was spacious and well appointed. The hotel is modern and doesnt feel run down although it has been there for some time. Plenty of car parking. The only criticism I would have and it's an important one is the floors on... More

Visited here with a large family group and everything was as expected. There was a decent choice on the menu and the drinks were good and reasonable priced £3.20 for Coors Lite. Most of our party had the carvery at £9.95 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. I myself had the Cod and at £10.95 a little on the expensive side... More

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...
