Busy restaurant with lots of birthday parties, but good service, not too noisy, and privacy available in a booth if you were a solo traveller, as I was. Good carvery, unpretentious food. Decent clean bedroom. Breakfast fair but no muesli, you had to ask for fruit specially and the choice wasn't that wide. The yogurt was very plastic-tasting and I... More

We stayed one night. All staff very attentive. Room could of been cleaner although bathroom was spotless. Didn't bargain for a local band banging out tunes till late. Not sure this was mentioned at the time of booking. Food was very good and just a little odd it is on the edge of a housing estate.

We have stayed in the Bessemer hotel in Dowlais, Merthyr Tydfil three times now, including our honeymoon, and most recently during a visit back home to Wales for the Rugby. The welcome is very warm, with friendly staff who go the extra mile. The staff are like a family, and will do their best to help you. The rooms are... More

As I live locally I have never spent the night at the Bessemer Hotel, so I cannot coment on the standard of accomodation; what I will coment on is the food, and in particular the carvery which I have enjoyed on at least a dozen or more occaisions. This is a great value for money dinner, served by friendly staff,... More

Regular visitor of the bessemer hotel when I am in the area, the carvery is fantastic and the staff are delightful. Although by the time I got to the serving area to get my food some of the vegtables looked a little over cooked and left out, could have been a little fresher but overall I thoroughly enjoyed! Will be... More

We thought we could wait until the early evening, in the middle of August, to stop at whatever hotel struck our fancy near the Brecons National Park and get a nice room. However, we didn't factor in the British August holiday phenomenon, where every single citizen of the UK travels to some other part of the UK, mainly because they... More
