“My second visit did not disappoint”
Reviewed January 14, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Once again I found myself staying at Duffryn Lodge.

The house is well cared for by the owners and perfect for travelers exploring the area. The kitchen is well equipped and within walking distance of a supermarket making for a perfect self catered holiday.

There are full laundry facilities which came in handy for cleaning my gear after a race in Brecon Beacons. Tourists with bicycles will appreciate the mudroom with plenty of bike storage.

The house is within short walking distance of Pentre-Bach rail station.

After a long day in Brecon Beacons or just traveling, Duffryn Lodge is a welcome, warm, cozy retreat, that I'm sure I will return to.

“Lovely well presented lodge.”
Reviewed October 31, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

What a lovely well presented house. Every room finished to a high standard. Great location, in easy reach of shops and food/pubs. My wife found Merthyr good for shoping! I used it as a base for walking in the Brecon's and it was just about right. If/when we return to the area, we'd certainly look for this place first.

“Large, recently refurbished & well presented property”
Reviewed October 12, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A group of us used this property as a base for a trip to Bike Park Wales.

The house was clean, well presented and came with a supply of tea, coffee, milk and beer - what else could you possibly need?

On street parking outside. Utility room is decked out for bike storage. £5 taxi ride into town if you want to sample the delights of Merfyr on an evening, or a 40min walk.

Electric shower was a bit naff and difficult tor use, however this was reported to the owner, so I'm sure they will resolve this minor issue.

“Perfect for bike park Wales trip!”
Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Place is clean. Kelvin is friendly and helpful. Kitchen is well equipped, the only thing I may suggest is a bigger baking tray for pasta bake haha. Hose in the garden is super convenient for washing bikes or rising muddy clothes. Bike storage room is just superb!

“When I return to Merthyr Tydfil, I'm staying here”
Reviewed July 16, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The property is perfect for a small group. Very clean and well taken care of. Bike racks inside for visitors on bike tours. Property owners were very accommodating and helpful in the key exchange and in providing directions. I plan on returning to the area again in January and plan on staying again.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed July 8, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Sparkling clean, with everything we needed. Could cook a full meal....everything was there. Nice touches like welsh cakes, cookies and three beer, one for each of us. Within walking distance to a restaurant. Great experience

Very clean, well equipped Including tea, milk and welsh cakes to welcome us! Close to bike park (one guest spent the day there), also easy to get into Cardiff on the train for the rugby.
