We literally, stopped by the side of the road to see the Devil's Bridge and wound up staying the night. Hotel is nothing fancy but pretty we'll maintained. Restaurant served nice food, if nothing exciting. The most fun was being there the evening of the rugby finals and seeing the locals root for their team! It was loud and boisterous.... More

I have been in and out of here since 1961. It hasn't changed much since then. Looked in for lunch a couple of weeks ago. It is a bit dispiriting but the staff were nice and the food reasonable. It must be dificult to run a hotel here. It is in the middle of nowhere although a very beautiful and... More

My room was quite basic but had charm, the same sort of charm I associate with older private hotels in New England—just a bit shabby. But the bathroom was ultra-modern, the bedding was clean, I had a lovely second-floor window seat overlooking the gorge, and I smelled no nasty smells (as some have recorded), even on the dankest of fall...

My wife and I only visited the tea rooms of the Hafod Hotel, thankfully. Although the hotel and tearooms had an attractive appearance from the outside, the furnishings in the tea rooms were terrible - oil cloth coverings on the tables, dirty seating with a stage in one corner and what appeared to be a pile of rubbish along the...

I recently staid up the road from the Hotel. So I cant comment on the accommodation or the main areas within the Hotel. This review is based on the Three Bridges Bar Area. However I decided to have a drink in the Three Bridges Bar. From the outside the structure of the Hotel has a real nice charm. In fact... More

Luckily we were staying in accomodation nearby and only stopped here to eat. Chef unhelpful and not prepared to accomodate our request for a late breakfast. Food was overcooked and tasteless. Dining area filthy. Witnessed a waitress drop a knife and fork on the floor then put them on the table to be used. The toilets were hideous. I've seen... More

We booked the hotel to attend our friends 25th wedding anniversary celebration at the hotel. We were warmly greeted and shown to our large spacious room with a four poster bed. The staff and owners were so obliging and the food was excellent . We'll certainly stay there again . I can't praise them enough
