We used Ncrowd vouchers to stay at this hotel along with 2 other couples. The rating of average is based on the amount we paid, which wouldn't have bought breakfast in many hotels. Most of the staff were very pleasant, the rooms were clean, but our room was very small with minimal storage, cold, and the bathroom very cramped. The... More

I was extremely disappointed when I walked in - the area around the front door what extremely dusty with very old cobwebs in evidence. The reception was just an old office area, which was not being used, basically a 'hole' in the wall. Our room was spacious, but furnished with old furniture that quite frankly was tatty rather than shabby... More

Room was extremely shabby, no mirror in bathroom, the tv didnt get a regular signal and the radiator didnt work. Good breakfast but felt ripped off as the room extremely expensive. The manager knocked a whole £12 off the bill and the staff admitted the rooms were not up to standard (refurbishment programme underway apparently but this should be reflected... More

I went to the Brynafon Country Hotel for 2 nights with my fiance in February. The male member of staff who met us was welcoming and offered assistance with our bags. Our room was warm and comfortable, with all basic necesities. We then had afternoon cream tea which was enjoyable and welcoming after a long journey. We read that the... More

I stayed here with a friend for a two night break I'd bought off Groupon. The hotel its self is full of character. The room was ample in size, clean and the bed was very comfy. It was lovely to return to a warm cosy room after being out all day seeing the sights in the bitter cold. My only... More

Was a little dubious when we arrived and had to hunt around the pace to find someone after standing and waiting for ten minutes, however the lady who did deal was us was lovely! I think she worked every hour God sent as she always seemed to be there when we were around; saying that, she definitely made us smile... More

Went for a meal on Valentine's weekend and ordered off of the main menu. The food although freshly cooked was not up to the standard expected for the price charged. The sauce with the steak was a strange taste and the steak itself seemed not to have been cooked on a proper chargrill. The sea bass charged at £14 was... More

Our room was large and recently decorated, it was what looked an old barn. Room above and restaurant below. I would have said it was almost an apartment with the amount of space. However Mum and Dad had a room in the main building with access via a tower like stairway which was unfortunately very damp and decrepit looking. The... More

Surprised only because I had read some negative reviews, but we ended up very pleased with our visit, despite having to leave 1 night early due to family emergency, was very successful and restful. Despite heavy rain, and gorgeous snow!! We were on a special offer and had added an extra night hoping the negative reviews were wrong. They were.... More
