“Fantastic stay ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Had a really nice time, the food was Fantastic, rooms neat and tidy. Above all the owner was a fantastic host.

I don't know what the previous remark stated... Frozen food, no way!! fresh beautiful home cooked food at its best.

A must stay if you are in Merthyr

“An Excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

I work in catering at a gastro pub, and in corporate hospitality for American Express. I can not speak highly enough of the superb cuisine, friendly service and excellent value that I was given at the Penylan Restaurant. There is certainly a warm welcome and very good value at this gem of a boutique hotel in the centre of Merthyr Tydfil.

“A nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Small restaurant/guest house in a converted terrace house just outside the town centre. Staff very helpful and friendly, decent range of options on the menu, food well presented, well cooked and in decent portions, nice atmosphere, fair prices and range at the bar. We were a group of hungry cyclists who had booked in advance. You may have to work to find it but well worth the effort, we'd give then a go again as a group.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Did not live up to expectation-food was not fresh and home cooked as advertised-from freezer to fryer! Won't be returning in a hurry! Lots of effort has been put into the interior - bordering on tacky :-(
