I booked 3 rooms in this hotel for the night of 16th August 2014, being the night before my Sons Wedding. I booked this only a week before, so was not pleased to find when we arrived that a VERY loud party was going on, which no one had had the decency to tell us about when booking. We had... More

This was a last minute booking and I was very pleasantly surprised at the high standards to be found at the Castle Hotel. The hotel was clean, well decorated and the staff very friendly and welcoming. The public car park across the road was easy to use and just a few minutes' walk away. Our room was of a very... More

When coming to Merthyr Tydfil recently, I was surprised to see that some well known hotels had bumped their prices up. In some cases double, due to the summer months. But I was lucky enough to find The Castle Hotel in Merthyr Tydfil. I travel a lot and tend to stay in cheapish good value for money hotels and in... More

Booked for a executive double room. Manager insisted executive double room at higher rates. I paid for executive double room at discounted rate. Only had standard double. I complained but they didn't want to know. Would not recommend. Uncomfortable very dated and not as described .

Guest booked a double room with en-suite. We do not have 2 classifications of a double room. The guest expected a suite for the same price as a double. When offered to upgrade to a suite for the additional cost the guest declined. No further complaint was made in regards to the room, even on check out. Unfortunately we cannot... More

Very clean and tidy hotel. All the staff were so helpful, they were very attentive even though the hotel was fully booked. The location of the hotel was ideal for me, very lively atmosphere. If I am every in the Merthyr area again, I will surely return to this hotel.

Looking like one of those old Indian Restaurants, it was cheap and the staff cheerful. Coming off the mountains and arriving late in the day, the fact they allowed us to order in take-aways and kept the bar open was just the ticket. Perfect to crash out after a hard day, nothing to hold us to linger in the hotel.... More

Stayed here over the weekend as we were at an event in Raglan Castle, and this was the nearest hotel available due to other big events on in S. Wales. Arrived 8pm on Friday and booked in, lobby was presentable and staff very friendly and helpful. Dropped things off, and went to the restaurant for a meal. We were the... More
