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

Recently visited the Bessemer for the first time with a large group of friends. The service was friendly and welcoming and the food was delicious. There was plenty of meat served per meal and the vegetables were fresh and very tasty! Prices for mains and deserts are very reasonable.

We had an overnight stay here to attend a friends wedding. We wanted to check in early & our room was ready well in advance of the normal check-in time, check in was easy & stress free. The hotel is just a 2 mins drive off the heads of the valley road & a short drive from the Brecon mountain... More

Stayed here on business. Location was great for Cardiff and surrounding area. Rooms could possibly have been a bit better. Really clean but a little bit dated. Also squeaky floorboards which meant I could hear my colleague in the next room crashing about like a baby rhino! Having said that, I had a really good sleep and fab breakfast the... More

We only stayed here for one night but everyone was friendly and helpful. We were visiting family and didn't actually get to book in until midnight but were greeted with a smile and our key card was all ready for us. Had a bit of difficulty with the key but it worked eventually. Breakfast was lovely and our order was... More
