“Good value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This hotel turned out to be great value.
The service was good, rooms were good overall the stay was a pleasure . Location was central to most attractions . And the added service of being able to bring your pet with you for a small sum of five pounds seemed great value.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

We paid less than 40 pounds for a double en-suite bedroom, without bedroom. The hotel is in good condition. TV is available on 9.99 pounds per night. Wi-fi is free of charge. The room was quite spacious and new.

Mc-donald is within walking distance. Sainsbury's is about a mile away. It might be a good accommodation if you own a private vehicle.

Perfect location as a stop off travelling from London to Aberystwyth. Good size rooms, immaculately clean - some upholstery (chair) could do with repairing/replacing and room rather too warm for my comfort - could only open window a tad (obviously for H&S reasons) then it made the room noisy as road facing. All staff polite and friendly.

Liked the restaurant / bar - good menu - didn't need to go out for evening meal.

Would visit again.

Stayed here for a hen night out. Its too far from the nightlife to walk so you have to get taxi's. Its basic and very cheap. Bed sheets were clean but I think some of the furniture needs to be changed, old and tatty and grubby.

Its good enough for a one night stay but two nights would have killed me on the crunchy mattress. Its quite noisy during the saturday night with people going to wind street.

Its cheap and if you just need a place to put your head for the night, its fine. You get what you pay for people, if you want luxury and a romantic night with your boyfriend/girlfriend you need to pay for it and go somewhere else. Don't expect a champagne hotel on a beer budget!

Stayed for one night and pleased it wasn't for any longer.

The bed was the most uncomfortable thing I've ever tried to sleep in, absolutely awful.

On a positive note the staff were top notch.

Sort your beds out please !!!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else..

We stayed at this hotel on Friday the 24/8/12 we checked in at 4pm.. When we phoned they didn't ask for payment on the phone so there wasn't garuantee on the room, they said to us they was about to cancel the room as we didn't check in before 2pm but lucky they didn't and the room was still available, check in was easy and fast, the room was lovely we had a disabled room as they didn't have any normal rooms left! It was a big room & a wet room shower.. Free tv, the room was very clean.
The only thing I would say is we only had 1 pillow so I would ask for more, the staff was lovely! We didn't eat at the hotel so couldn't comment, the drinks in hotel was fair priced. Free car parking as well, good as we went to Swansea for football, over all for £55 a night we had a lovely stay!
