The staff are very pleasant especially the young lady who had to make several trips up and down the stairs sorting out a problem with our room key. The room was comfortable and adequately furnished. My bed was alright but my son's bed was rather... More

Nice overnight stay, friendly welcome and comfy, very clean rooms. Nice quiet area, breakfast was continental but more than adequate. Overall a nice relaxing overnight stay. Good free wifi. Try the Indian restaurant up the road called Qmin, great food.

Have visited many times and roast has always been nice, you do have to queue for a while as it is self serve carvery. Have visited once for an evening meal (chips gammon) etc but wouldn't go again as food was not that good. Best for roast dinners.

The restaurant was clean and tidy, food was very very good with plenty of different meats and a variety of vegetables from roast and boiled potatoes, peas, carrots, cauliflower cheese and sprouts with real gravy. There are a variety of starters to choose from also the... More

Never been before but went for a friends birthday and the food was amazing - highly recommended! You can even get a takeaway if you take your own plate. Now that we have discovered this little gem in Merthyr we will definitely be revisiting soon with family
