We stayed here recently for two nights whilst visitng family, I wanted a good bed instead of an air bed at my husbands brothers and thats what I got! I did think it was a little soft at first but actually I had two great nights sleep and the hotel rooms are much farther from the road than they look... More

I went for Sunday lunch with my family. Keeping it brief, the place is lovely, the waiting staff are very attentive and nice and the food was good. The only real issue was that there were only 2 roast potatoes on our plates. I felt this was a little light on tatties. We pleasantly enquired as to whether we could... More

First comment - everyone else in our party had good food that they all enjoyed with good size portions. I ordered a main course salad - but was served little more than a starter size bowl of green leaves with a sparse scattering of walnut pieces, less cheese than my wife had on her burger, and a tiny drizzle of...

I stayed recently whilst on business in South Wales. I fancied a change from the large chain hotels and I am so glad I did. My room was modern, clean and very nice. Parking is free for residents and behind the hotel. food was gorgeous and very reasonable along with the bar prices. Great evening atmosphere too...... I will defiantly... More

Relaxing atmosphere with log fire, friendly staff, good service. Good pub food with interesting specials - we chose wild boar and chorizo burger and beer battered fish and twice cooked chips. Desserts also fine - apple crumble and sherry trifle (though not a lot of sherry present). Well kept Brain's Bitter made for a good lunch. Fair prices. No complaints.

Very tasty food in lovely surroundings! Excellent waitress service- would highly recommend for Sunday lunch although they have a wide range of food available. Easily accessible car park although the downside is you have to pay to park.

Had Sunday lunch here today. Had heard good reviews of these place but had never been here so was looking forward to it. The setting was nice. However the food did not meet expectations and it struck us that this is a pub trying too hard, to be something it's not. The roast was average, and portion size was on... More

I loved the idea of relaxing in a bath whilst watching TV after a long day of work and travel, which was why I chose this place over others in the area. Unfortunately the TV didn't work so that novelty selling point proved a red herring. Room was a lot smaller than it looks on the website, but was clean... More

My husband and I stayed here on the 27th of November for one night as we were in Cardiff to see Lee Evans at the Motorpoint Arena. I have been to Cardiff numerous times for shows and always begrudge paying the money they charge for the city centre hotels which are below standard for me, so after a little search... More
