As we were travelling from London to Glasgow, we wanted to experience as much as we could and this village was the find of our trip.... As was this hotel. When we go back over our holidays, Neath is the first place that comes up. This hotel, while looking a bit older from the front seems to have gone thru... More

This is an old coaching hotel with a lovely wood panelled foyer and large bar. There is a secure car park and large lock up for cyclists. Rooms have very large bathrooms with fast flowing hot water. The outside area catches the last of the sun and is a great place to people watch.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Castle Hotel. Our room was not very big but was adequate and very clean. We have had smaller rooms in NYC that cost much more. The first night there was a problem with the shower but the problem was taken care of while we were at dinner. The staff was very... More

I organised a get together for 14 for mountain biking at Afan Forst. The Castle Hotel is a good spot to stay for Afan, it is close to Swansea for a big night out, or you can just have a beer in Neath with the fairly friendly locals. They have a garage for all your bikes too. Beer and food... More

Hotel is poor on accessibility, no lifts and steps everywhere. Room decor is dated and could do with refreshing, I saw two rooms (first was unsuitable due... More

Chose this from Trip Advisor over hotels in Port Talbot. Was not disappointed regarding value. Huge room (double and two singles) with windows opening onto town center back yards. Very quiet except for the amorous pigeons in the morning. Restaurant food OK, not exceptional; but the breakfast was enormous. Felt bad about leaving over half. Bathroom a bit dated and... More

Wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. Very dated poorly furnished rooms , dirty mouldy bathrooms and showers that freeze or scald. Restaurant ok but limited availability mid week. An experience not to be repeated
