“2nd visit and still as good as the first time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Just had to do a review for this great, friendly little place that my husband and I found last year and we decided to visit again. We came home today!

The welcome was just as warm as the first time and the staff were unobtrusive but attentive. The manager/owner was clearly interested in us as guests and asked us each day if we had enjoyed our trips out. He also gave us some great ideas about places to eat etc.

We had the ground floor king-sized room which was spacious and well equipped. I enjoyed the duvet as I get a little tired of sheets and throws or blankets that you get in lots of hotels these days (they are always tucked in all the way round and I wrestle them before I go to bed which makes everything so untidy - duvets are great). Parking too was a breeze, with a large spacious car park that meant that everyone parked easily (the hotel was full). I liked the tree at the front and that it was lit up at night as this made it all feel very romantic.

Having read other people's reviews before visiting this time, I was actually more conscious of external noise than I had been on the first visit, although I didn't find the occasional traffic noise even remotely irritating, and I found the sound of the trains strangely reassuring when they passed from time to time - so really this didn't impact on the stay.

Breakfast was organised to our schedule (not the hotel's) and the time we wanted was agreed the night before. The breakfast was ample and really set us up for the day. It was charged in addition to the room rate, but that was clear on booking. It was nice to feel that we didn't need to have breakfast and we wouldn't be wasting money.

All in all - another good, relaxing stay and I have this feeling that this is going to become an annual event. Thank you to all the staff.

My boyfriend and I stayed here a few months ago. We were greeted warmly on reception and instantly felt at home. Our room was clean, spacious and warm. The decor wasn't quite to my taste (a smidge old fashioned) but not something that would deter me from staying again. Breakfast was enjoyable, although maybe could have been improved by using local sausages. The staff were able to recommend local areas, walks and places to visit. Overall, one of the friendliest welcomes I've ever had, really lovely.

Our stay at Hazelwood House was very mixed. The fellow who greeted us on arrival was odd. There was no word of welcome. He implied he wasn't expecting us, and then that only one room was booked when we needed two, neither of which were correct especially as we had phoned ahead to check that all was well. Either he felt this was some sort of joke, or he was stoned/drunk. Though our rooms were very clean and well prepared, we were disturbed by being so close to the main railway line and main road. My wife had to decamp to sleep on the bathroom floor for our first night and then share with our daughter for the second as her room was a bit further removed from the arterial transport links. The breakfast (and breakfast staff) were, however, fine.

Room Tip: Avoid the back adjacent to the railway line

Warm and friendly staff make you very welcome at this hotel. It is clean, spacious and in a quiet location away from the town centre but very accessible. We have stayed here three times when visiting the Millenium Stadium and have never been disappointed. The rooms and en suite bathrooms are all large and have everything needed for the business traveller, the holiday maker or like us, the long weekenders. The breakfast table has everything anyone could need to set them up for the day, and there is also the full Welsh breakfast - delicious ! Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, far better than some of the large group hotels we have stayed in.

Large room, clean, free mineral water. Breakfast was huge, and the manager was very helpful guiding me into town, which you can walk to in 20-30mins.

Bed was large as well, and also a trouser press in the room.

Definately recommended by me, and better value than the chain hotels.

Lovely clean guesthouse just outside Bridgend town centre, spacious bedroom, nice outside garden and seating area, excellent service from Anthony behind reception.
Only slight minuses I can think of was the curtains didn't keep out much of the morning sunshine (not a problem for everyone though), and the 'Welsh breakfast' offered was a full English to my eyes - where was the Welshness?
Apart from those niggles everything was fine.
