“Music to be expected!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

I can only give this place a recommended review because it is stunning, the staff are amazing and the food is great!!! The complaints people have made about loud music and noise in the street is to be expected! It states on their website and booking sites it is located in the centre of a busy town and close to nightclubs and even gives you the days it will be noisiest! Personally I didn't here street noise and we had roadworks right outside!

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

My wife and i were guests at a private 50th birthday party, The party was held in the upstairs function room / night club ,Although we enjoyed the party due to the occasion and meeting old friends we were very disappointed with the venue and especially the DJ s who were totally out of touch with the musical era of most of the party goers,and were to involved with texting on their mobile phones to care, we put up with the constant banging and thumping of the music for a while but eventually found it unbearable and along with other guests we left. My advice to any future party planners is to book the function room but don't book the two useless DJs.

As the only place to stay in central Ponty for a business traveller I have now stayed here twice. Experienced a very noisy extractor fan when staying in Room 1 one time and was very cold overnight with no apparent heating at all this last time. The evening food was OK but breakfast was only average with everything "just cooked" - pale colour on bacon and hash brown and uncooked whites on egg.
For me, listening to piped/Christmas music at 7am is not a good idea as well as peering at my breakfast in a very gloomy and poorly lit environment.
However, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are of a good standard of decor, beds are comfy and it is pretty good value for money.

Room Tip: Don't have single room No.1 - kitchen extractor fan right outside window - didn't switch off...

I was booked into the Blueberry Hotel on a business trip - it looked reasonable from the early reviews but, having now stayed there, it does have some not-so-great features. The room I occupied was very modern and well-appointed (Don't bother using the lift - it's quicker on the stairs). To get to the hotel you effectively have to walk through the bar to the back end - all rather strange and quirky.

The food was OK but nothing special and nothing too great. Breakfasts were fine. I guess with little choice of a hotel in Pontypridd then this is about as good as you will get.

Room Tip: As far from the bar as possible.

Cant believe i live so near and hadn't been there before. Decided to go for lunch one day and was not disappointed, Decor was really nice, food first class, prices very good as well, so will be using the Blueberry Inn on frequent occasions. Very nice.

Room Tip: didn't stay there but the food was lovely, all very inviting.

Positives: Wonderful decor in the bar and restaurant, lovely food with generous portions, friendly staff, cosy atmosphere, well decorated bedrooms, very comfy beds, powerful shower and room service.

Negatives: Light bulbs not all working in chandelier in our room, not enough toiletries given, a coffee cup stain on the sideboard.

*Also there is not a lot to do in the local area so I don't recommend a long stay. There is a cinema, bowlplex and some restaurants 2 train stops away in nantgarw and a few bars and clubs in Pontypridd but that''s it.

Overall though I would definitely go back again!

Room Tip: There are 2 types of rooms Elegant French decor and white modern ones. Choose carefully which you...
