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

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

I am so sorry that Chris did not enjoy his stay at our Town House. Upon calling us to enquire about booking, he, like all others, was given a number of options of different types of accommodation we offer. All are clearly described. Chris chose our cheapest option and was made aware that the property had a shared kitchenette and... More

This was such a lucky find. My fiance and myself were mountain biking in Afan Forest. This B&B has secure bike storage. The rooms are very comfortable, and the breakfast burritos were divine. The dogs were gorgeous and the owners were the nicest people. I will definitely stay there again.

One of the best places I've stayed at in years. Eli is lovely, warm and welcoming, I loved the dogs, beautiful room, great breakkie. Wouldn't look anywhere else if I'm in the area again. Constantly amazed by the rubbish people right on here: "a fairly run down scheme" Livvy?! It's called Wales, home of some of the most beautiful scenery... More
