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

Three of us stayed here for a weekend trip to Afan Forest mountain biking... Upon arrival we were met by Eli and her 2 huge dogs and welcomed into her main house to check in and pay for our room. We were given a tick sheet for selecting our breakfast for the next morning (Full Welsh, American etc) and told... 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

My husband and I needed a get-away to relax and recharge. We wanted a relaxed quiet stay in a homey environment and be able to walk to restaurants and sight seeing. The Mountain View Bed and Breakfast in Port Talbot , Wales was the perfect place. The owners , Eli and Lisa, were friendly, fun and caring. They wanted our... More

I've always had a very pleasant stay at this B & B (I've stayed at this B & B five times) and I feel a lot of these negative comments are unfounded probably due to people‘s expectation levels. The bed and breakfast doesn’t claim to be anything isn’t. "the mountain view bed and breakfast is situated in the middle of... More

We traveled to Wales as a part of our vacation, and we couldn't have found a better place to stay. The owners, Eli and Lisa, couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. They went way beyond the necessary to help us think through what we would enjoy doing and how to get there. Nothing was too much trouble! They have... More

I stayed for 1 night with my 7 year old daughter. The owners were friendly enough but they had 2 very large dogs which kept getting in my daughter's face and was clearly unhappy about it but the lady did absolutely nothing. In fact the only time she reacted was when I pushed the dog away from my daughter -... More

The mountain view bed and breakfast is situated in the middle of a fairly run down scheme. when we arrived the owner did not even show us the room before insiting we pay.
