“A budget hotel in location good for us”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

We were going to a music festival in Merthyr Tydfil and were pleased to find the Travelodge room for just £25. We arrived at the hotel earlier than anticipated, and were slightly annoyed to be told that although our room was ready, we would still have to pay £10 to check in.
The room was tidy and fresh, and massive for just the two of us. Facilities were good. Bathroom was clean. Free car parking was a huge bonus.

The sleep wasn't great though - pillows very uncomfortable, and room really hot. But we stayed for one night so it was ok.

The hotel is in a retail park which has a sports centre, Vue cinema, Nandos, McDonalds, Chinese buffet, Subway, Frankie & Bennys and Harvester

We arrived rather late to the hotel, the doors were locked and reception was unmanned. The light fitting in the bathroom flickered, we asked for a repair but this never happened, we removed it in the end

Myself, my grown up daughter and 2 children stayed here for 3 nights, we wanted a cheap and accessable stay for a quick getaway and this hotel served our purpose. It was very clean with a nice king size bed and single bed, we took our own travel cot. The hotel provided the bedding for the cot for us which was great. The bathroom was clean with nice clean white towels supplied along with body/hair wash. The staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Plenty of parking. There were plenty of places to eat nearby to suit all tastes, and a huge swimming pool which cost £3.70 per adult and the children were free. The town is small but very nice and on the doorstep. This hotel is in a good place for easy access to view much of the local area including the Brecons and on approx 30 miles from a beach. I would recommend this place for a short or longer term stay.

Stayed at this hotel in a disabled room for one night on business. The hotel is very nicely located near Rhydycar Leisure facilities, Mc Donalds,Harvester, Nandos, Vue cinemas and a selection of many eating places. It is opposite the Wales Government Office. Brilliant and quite location just at the edge of the eating facilities and easily accessible by road, off the A470.

The room was very clean and the staff very friendly and approachable. The only down side was that the reception is not manned even during working hours and if you catch the wrong time it can take several minutes before you can be attended. On one occasion I was kept waiting for 20 minutes before I could be attended. But for under £40 pounds a night it was a good deal.

Room Tip: The back rooms are very quite facing the gardens

We stayed here for 2 nights including our Border Collie and the room on the first floor was spacious which big enough for all our walking gear and the dogs bed. It was clean and did what it said on the tin. The Marstons Dragonfly pub which does 2 for 1 meals was ideal after a long day in the mountains.

The only gripe is that the smoking area was just outside the front entrance and our room was just above, so the smell of smoke and chit chat of people was not welcome.
