Visited The Aberavon beach two weekends on the trot. What a lovely hotel, ok outside looks a bit on the grotty side. Then you step into the Tardis. Reception area, bar, lounge spotlessly clean smart and comfy.
Checking in was fast and very friendly. The reception staff (Thanks very much Rachel) were polite and very helpful.
Our room 310 was sparkling clean and a pleasure to be in. A nice sea view a flat screen tv and really comfy bed had us looking forward to our stay.
We were there for a dancing weekend and the hotel has excellent facilities to provide this to the full. An outstanding ballroom with a superb dance floor, it's own bar and comfortable seating. The bar service was very good with smiling faces and polite service. Bar prices are reasonable and drinks well kept.
The restaurant was clean and the food was lovely. Thank you to the staff for making meal time pleasant.
Breakfast was "proper grub" all freshly cooked, served quickly and on hot plates. I asked for a fried slice (not on the menu) It came straight away.
For a weekend away or a stay in a nice place for touring South Wales the Aberavon Beach Hotel is a must.

Port Talbot is not the most attractive of towns, but if you are visiting the Swansea area this is the only Best Western. As other have done I was fearing the worst when I saw the exterior ( 1960s square brick and concrete ) but I could not have been more wrong.Inside it is light and spacious. Friendly reception, large lounge and bar area, spacious restaurant with good food and service. There are two lifts and plenty of car parking. There is a gym and good sized indoor pool. The hotel overlooks the beach. The rooms are average size, beds and pillows good The only problem I had was with the wifi in the room but good in the bar and lounge area.The price was very reasonable for a 3 star of this quality.The hotel has won local and national awards. Would certainly stay again if in the area. Well done.

Room Tip: get a room at the front of the hotel with a sea view.

I have visited the Aberavon hotel twice and both times were wonderful experiences. This time I forgot to add onto the booking that our 3 year old daughter would be joining us however this was not a problem because the manager put a single bed into our room straight away which I thought was brilliant. The breakfast is also lovely and everyone should try the Welsh cooked breakfast. It was a great break, the beach is lovely and only moments away from the hotel. Will be visiting soon.

Room Tip: Ask for a view overlooking the beach
