When we checked in and entered the room, our first reaction was to put on protective gear. Brown spots on the toilet seating, dirty bed linnen, wall paper hanging loose and all furniture superbly neglected. Complained and were offered another room, which was a copy/paste. The old Russian communists would be very happy with this hotel, which indeed deserves 3... More

We had travelled from Wellingborough so we were hungry and went out to find a restaurant. Found Moksh a very good quality indian. Came back and thought we... More

The rooms were so hot even though outside was only 18C. So uncomfortable and couldn't sleep. Two tiny windows did not provide any ventilations. Unless you enjoy sleepless nights, avoid this hotel. Better comfort and value for money in the area. Oh, and the WiFi doesn't work, at all...

Thank god it was 1 night, I had a room facing the shop but I stayed on a week day and it was quite enough, the hotel has a good centre location, near pubs. Noise might be a problem here over a weekend. My room wasn't the cleanest, very grubby, cigarette butts down the sink and you could smell people... More

Not much choice in merthyr in reality. Friendly staff but hotel needs renovation. Clean enough but fixings poor, collapsing clothes rail, half of one toilet roll, no spare. Overpowered cold tap but one of the weakest showers ever. Bed passable. Breakfast ok. Stay for one night if passing through but wouldn't stay again

A tired hotel but one that gave us a pleasant stay. Room was very tired with decoration from the 70's but linen and towels were spotless, bed was comfortable and all proved to be adequate. Our evening meal was very good with good size helpings and the breakfast was hot and plentiful. Staff in general were very friendly. For the... More
