I have stayed in the hotel on at least 3 occasions for business when in the area. Excellent location by the beach. Very helpful staff. Good facilities in the hotel including the restaurant. Wifi is good and better than many places I stay in.

We ran a dance weekend here last March - we took 50 of our dancers there Friday to Sunday. It was fantastic nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the food and ballroom was second to none so much so we are taking 60 of our dancers there again in May

Excellent stay from check in to check out. Great staff, friendly and informative. Only had the one night but we were told about the swimming pool and facilities. Reasonable price at the bar and restaurant. Rooms were clean, spacious and airy. Best of all FREE PARKING! really fantastic little place to stay and the price was great too. Would recommend.

I visited here for the first time during January for an organised lunch and Floral art demonstration.The exterior of the hotel is a bit offputting but once inside the decor is very nice. The lunch was delicious and the young serving staff very friendly and efficient.

A little daunting when you first arrive, the outside of the hotel is certainly not the ritz. But the interior really is very smart, clean and the staff are very helpful and welcoming. The bedroom and the bed was very comfortable. Great swimming pool sauna and whirlpool. Port talbot doesn't have a lot of entertainment but has a kind of... More

The hotel has a fantastic location a stones throw from a fantastic beach. The outside is not particularly attractive and if driving by looking for somewhere to stay you may decide to give it a miss. However, that would be a big mistake because as soon as you enter the hotel its instantly clear that it is very attractively decorated... More

As other reviewers have said, the drab exterior hides a recently refurbished interior. The public areas were in good order, and a smell of fresh paint in corridors suggests that the rooms are also being done. Our room seemed be to be on the waiting list. The wallpaper was torn in places, and the light coloured carpet showed several stains;... More

As other reviews have said, don't be put off by the outside of this hotel. It's lovely inside with friendly staff and even a pool. We stayed in a family room which was bigger than any others we've stayed in at that price. Its location right next to the beach is fantastic. It was a little cold when we stayed... More

A good beach front position with fantastic caring staff and well appointed rooms. Sadly I only get to visit once each year but shall continue to return every time I am in the area. The wide choice of options for breakfast should suit everyone with the full "English" being more than adequate to take you to luch time.
