Stayed here when I visited Port Talbot to ride Dragon Ride this June. I stayed at the townhouse, which is just down the road, and was perfect for me. - Safe, indoor cycle storage (they even let me get my bike to the room if I wished) - Common kitchen, well equipped and handy (specially for sportives where you leave...

Stayed here for two night s before a local cycle ride. Friendly owners, clean comfortable rooms and a shared well equipped kitchen. Add to this fantastic value for money and it is an ideal place to stay in the area. I will stay again if ever in the area

Stayed with a group of friends in the garden house , ideal for our needs and very cheap perfect if you like us where riding the dragon ride or similar . We would all stay at mountain view again .Advertised as a b&b which it isn't, so bring food and make the most of the kitchen as we did.

Hi Adam. We're very glad we were able to provide you with a comfortable place to stay for the Dragon Ride. At the time of booking, we did inform you that the stay would be "room only" and that you were welcome to bring your own food and use the kitchen or walk five minutes down to Wetherspoons or other...

Stayed two nights for the Dragon Ride this year. The room was clean & very comfortable and we had secure bike parking in an outdoor shed. Friendly owners and lovely dogs. Fantastic value for money - glad we chose to stay here and would definitely stay again next year.

I stayed here in a group of 5 whilst on a mountain biking weekend at Afan Forest. After reading the reviews I was very sceptical about booking and the recent "Hotel Inspector" episode also didn't fill me with confidence. On arrival we were greeted by the dogs (very friendly) and the owner. We went into the main house which did... More

Thank you for your comments. It's a shame that you were disappointed in not having breakfast with us. Our cost cutting measures for guests were clearly explained to you beforehand and you were okay with that when you made your booking. As you said, a kitchen was provided for you. You had very good value for your £20 per person,... More

What a shame this couple did not enjoy their 10 minutes here. As it turned out, our dogs did happen to be out when they arrived and they were greeted with excitement as they had a dog with them. Our dogs were quickly brought into the property so their entrance would be quieter. They were asked if their dog shed... More

We came to Port Talbot to visit friends and stayed at this lovely American style B&B in the middle of Wales. The owners, Eli and Lisa, were so helpful and friendly and they have the most adorable new puppy and beautiful older dog, both of whom greeted us with affection. We had a limited budget and this B&B provided us... More

We were very distressed to have to request that this mother and her two children leave the B&B. They were in the Garden House, so when the other guests in that house came to me hesitantly to ask for help as the children were running up and down the stairs, bouncing balls against the other guests doors, banging and screaming...

looks like an average family home from the outside so we decided would be nice and cosy. on arrival we were invited into the hallway, where the absolutly appauling smell of dog and fousty air was enough to make us leave again. I cannot explain how bad the smell was wouldn't want to sleep lety alone eat there. Avoid

I stayed in the town house of Mountain View for 7 nights in late October 2013, so I can give an accurate impression of this poor establishment. I cannot comment on the main house or the beach house. On arriving Eli informed me that the previous guests had broken the spine of the bed and to go easy on it.... More
