Would Reccomend This Hotel To Anybody Who Wants A Good Welsh Breakfast & A Decent Hotel With Excellent Facilites. With Us Both Being Huge Gavin&Stacey Fans It Was A Perfect Location For A Walk Into Barry Island... More

We stayed three nights at this lovely little hotel on a recent trip to Wales and enjoyed our stay very much. The room was very clean and comfortable, breakfast excellent and the service very friendly and personal. We appreciated that our dog was also welcome. We loved it all; thank you; we will be back.

My husband and I have just spent four nights at this hotel. It is small and exceptionally welcoming! Nothing was too much trouble for Helen and dee, her sister. They were attentive without being over bearing. Very funny at times! Helen booked tables at local restaurants for us (and they were walking distance!) The breakfasts were fantastic and could be...

It's a bit of a mystery to us why the Aberthaw Hotel is scoring top marks on this site. There are some positive things. The owner and her staff are very friendly and helpful, the place is clean and warm and our room and en suite were a good size. However, there is no way this could be described as... More

This small B & B hotel stands out for plenty of reasons: Its central location offers an easy walk to shopping and dining. Built on a hill, it presents great views of the area. Room #2, which we booked for two nights in late May, offered lovely views of Barry and Barry Island through the modern windows that open easily.... More

Booked single room but was upgraded to double with great views over Barry. Great breakfasts and welcoming host Helen. Very close to trains and buses. Minutes from Barry Island. Room was spotless. Will stay again.

We stayed here for a couple of nights, when we were attending the rugby finals in Cardiff. It was perfectly situated to get the train in to the city, and also for walking into Barry for food. The staff are really friendly, and the full welsh breakfast a delight. The rooms were clean, and tastefully decorated and really comfy beds.... More

Had a lovely welcome but only had a one night stay. But we will defiantly stay here again next time we visit Barry. Good very clean rooms, fantastic breakfast and entertainment from the 2 ladies, my partner loved the home made marmalade. Very good coffee and loose leaf tea.
