From the outside this hotel does not look much but when you get inside the hotel is actually fabulous with very comfortable rooms, excellent service and delicious food. it is in a great location ideal for walks along the promenade.

Stayed here for the second time this year on business.

This time I organised a business meeting with seven colleagues, where we used the conference facilities along with rooms the night prior.

We spent all night in the bar and were made to feel very welcome.

We had Boardroom one for my meeting which was perfect with all facilities needed to conduct a professional all day meeting. The room had air/con which made it perfect.

The bedroom was comfortable and very clean.

A special thank you to Stuart McManus (General Manager) who made sure all facilities were as agreed prior to my meeting start. I would also like to thank Sam behind the bar who is very aware of the customer and likes to interact with you - an absolute asset to the hotel.

Be aware that if you want a swim or sauna ahead of work that this facility doesn't open until 9am.

I will certainly use this hotel again both whilst on business and personally.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view.

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.
