Hotel is OK for a business location but when you are there and you cannot get internet it somewhat defeats the objective. So don't stay on the third floor if you want to use the internet. I have previously stayed on the second floor with no problems which is why I am frustrated with my recent experience.

Apart from the beautiful beaches in Port Talbot, when we arrived at the hotel we thought we were in Beirut. The exterior is positively dire and I remember thinking what on earth have I booked. Step through the doors and its a different world, shiny sparkly marble floors, clean, modern furnishings, well designed and decorated. The staff are smartly dressed,... More

Don't be too worried when you arrive at the hotel as it looks like something from the worse Russian brutalist architecture. There is a good sized free carpark just off the main beach road then you're into the hotel. From here things start to look up. The reception is lovely and bright with a very welcoming receptionist. My room was... More

I am working on a long term project in the area and stay here most weeks. From the outside the hotel looks poor but take a step inside and the world changes. The staff are lovely and the rooms are modern with large screen TVs and a kettle. Couple of the rooms need the carpets replacing but the rest is... More

We stayed here from Friday 12th June 2015 until 13th June. When we arrived we looked at the outside and felt a bit deflated. It looked dishevelled and dated. As soon as we stepped inside all that changed. The reception area, bar/lounge and restaurant were beautiful. Our room was beautiful, well equipped with toiletries and tea/coffee facilities. The pool was... More

We had a lovely sea view room, clean, comfortable, well equipped great wifi and tv. The included breakfast was also extremely good, served by pleasant staff. We didn't use the pool but will if we stay here again. It looked great. The down-side was the ensuite bathroom. It looked wonderful, clean, and newly equipped. Unfortunately, the shelf for toileteries was... More

Don't judge a book by its cover - the outside is rough, and based on that alone you would not go near this place. However, if you dare to enter the inside is almost plush after a recent refurbishment! Right on the sea and great value - we had 3 beds in a room and paid £80 for the night.... More
