Normally fine, foods great, lovely atmosphere, but the WI-FI wasn't working, and when approached, the staff were "too busy" Sort the wi-fi and its back to 5 stars! I will say though that the breakfast (full welsh) is awesome the staff are great

Hi, Sorry to hear about your wifi issues. Hopefully this will be solved by the end of August, but it doesn't take 2 minutes to reset for you. This should have been done. I will discuss with my team why it wasn't. More

For business trips I have three requirements from a hotel, a good bed, a good shower and (in this day & age) good WI-FI (free-take note travel lodge). The 12 Knights delivered on all three. In addition it offered ample parking, very friendly staff, good bar food and good beer. Next morning it also delivered a truly excellent breakfast. All... More

Stayed here for one night on 02/07/2015 and found it a very nice and friendly place, all the staff couldn't do enough for you. Had a evening meal and breakfast and I must say that the food was lovely. The room was just a simple room very clean and overlooking the front of the property which I was worried about... More

Spotted this place on the way to Cardiff for the day. It looked good from the outside so we decided to call in for dinner on the way back. Pleased we did. Good food, good price, good selection of drinks and good service.

I would like to thank the old boys in the bar for making my friend and I so welcome after a hard day mountain biking in the Afan Forest. Plenty of friendly banter on all sorts of topics from cricket to the Wales - Englnd rivalry in rugby. The local beer (Reverend something) was superb and despite consuming a few... More

Everything was fine for our one night stay - room (especially the bath room which was so large that when we talked it produced a slight echo), breakfast and especially dinner in the pub which was excellent.

Picked this place because it was easy access from the M4 and a good price. We had a warm welcome on arrival and headed to our room, which was a good size as was the bathroom (shower good). Dinner was really good and service spot on. Breakfast was right up there - everything on the plate and good quality food... More

I turned up at the hotel and was told that there had been a mistake and my booking was for the following month, and the hotel was fully booked. I had booked it over the phone and was certain of the dates I gave, but it was partly my fault because I didn't check the dates on the email confirmation!... More
