Mount Pleasant..... its just perfect! 4 of us stayed in the huge family room for 2nights. Upon arrival we were met by John, what a lovely guy :) We were shown to our room along with the breakfast menus and asked what time we would like breakfast for.... never once had that in my life?! Once we had settled in... More

We spent two nights at the Mount Pleasant Inn and found it comfortable and clean. The owners were very welcoming, the dinner menu was surprisingly extensive and the food well prepared. But we were troubled by the location. The place is right on a busy highway -- only a narrow sidewalk separating the front of the building from the edge... More

We only needed to stay in Merthyr for one evening and we were very pleased to chosse this B & B. The owners were great, the atmosphere was welcoming and the home cooked food was fantastic. The room was absolutely spotless and despite not having a room overlooking the valley it was quiet and relaxing. The owners really do make... More

We needed to stay in the Merthyr area for an orienteering competition. Our previous B&B was fully booked so I spent some time on Tripadvisor looking for alternatives. Despite being in an unpromising area and my concerns that a pub B&B would be noisy, Mount Pleasant was absolutely fabulous. The room was large, verging on enormous: it was light and... More

This is a great find - everything you'd want with owners that try very hard to please. A warm, friendly welcome & a convivial atmosphere especially as the other guests are evidently enjoying their stay too. Spotless rooms, hearty breakfasts & dinners, lovely views down the valley from the terrace and a jolly bar. Everything just the way you want... More

What a lovely friendly hotel. Great food, comfy bed and first class service. Also gorgeous views across the Vale. Highly recommended to anyone in the Merthyr Tydfil / Vale area. I can highly recommend the beef stragonoff and the breakfast cooked to order. Beats the chain hotels every time!

I travel around the UK a lot for business purposes and I don't normally review the places I stay in - you tend not to notice them after a while. However, The Mount Pleasant truly deserves to be reviewed as it really is an absolute gem! It's located in a quiet village and, from the outside, it looks distinctly average.... More

The welcome was great and we had arranged an early check in. Taken up to room, which was superb, very clean and everything that was needed. Helped us with train times and station location. Breakfast was excellent, cant fault the place or the owners. This b and b was as good as many of the 5 star hotels i have... More

My wife and I were only in town for one night while on a tour of the Brecon Beacons. The room was very large with a new en-suite and the bed was very comfy. Great hospitality from Ann and John and a great base for hill walking. We would definitely stay again.

Just back from a short break in Wales - had read good reviews of the inn. What a wonderful place it was, the room was comfortable and had a fab view. John and Ann made us feel so welcome, and give great suggestions on what to do. The trip to "The Big Pit" was well worth the visit. The beer... More
