I spent four nights in this pleasant hotel while visiting friends. The room was nice, a comfortable bed, and a great shower. Breakfast was included, and it was cooked to order: scrambled eggs, bacon, mushrooms, baked beans, toast, orange juice and tea. The staff is very accommodating , and I felt like part of the family! I will stay there... More

This hotel is not far from my home in Pontardawe, I find it a great place to meet friends for a meal or a drink or even a coffee. £10 for two meals at the moment, that's lunchtime. On Sunday early evening they often have good live music here.

I stayed at this hotel last night (24th June 2014). I arrived at 4.45 p.m. to be told my room wasn't ready and was made to wait an hour. This is because they do not make the rooms up before the guest(s) arrive. I came down to the restaurant to have dinner at 8.10 p.m. to be told that there... More

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights as I was working in the area. I found the owners to be very nice people and the food was fantastic home made chips would recommend the fish and chips. My room was very comfortable for the price paid.The bar has live music and very friendly locals.

Went there for a meal with my wife and in-laws a few weeks ago. Very warm welcome from the landlady and a really homely feel to the place. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food. I had rump steak, asked for it medium rare and it was cooked to perfection. Came with homemade chips that were beautifully crisp and dry, along... More

Enjoyed one night stay at the Dillwyn Arms on B&B basis. The lounge bar and dining room offer a high standard of accommodation, being well decorated and furnished. My room was clean, tidy and comfortably furnished with a decent shower. Breakfast was enjoyable. I would have liked to sample the evening menu (recommended by locals), but the chef failed to...
