We stayed in the Afan Lodge for 4 nights on a recent business trip to the area. We were working outside and cam back late, dirty, tired and hungry, We were always made to feel welcome and no comment was ever made at the state we were in. Dinner was always a decent portion and I never went away hungry... More

I came across this place by accident whilst working in the area, If your into biking or just need a place to stay this place ticks all the boxes, what fantastic views, biking, food, hospitality. Then add the warm reception from Richard & Louise and all the mad as a box of frogs staff you'll not be disappointed.

If you need to mountain bike near Afan, want clean warm accommodation, lovely food, friendly staff, don't waste your time looking at anywhere else except The Lodge. Brilliant place to stay, great base for exploring the area. However, it may be a bit moist, but what else would you expect? Bring every item of biking clothing you have and you... More
