“A very good stay”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

My girl friend and I booked a room at the The Dillwyn Arms Hotel as I did'nt want to drive home after a night out at the Pontardawe Arts Center,, we was made to feel very welcome, and I find that much more relaxing, there was no time limit on beakfast in the morning so we was able to have a good lay in and just give then a shout in the morning when we wanted beakie :) and breakie was lush :) there is a bar down stairs were the locals are very friendly, all in all I would give them 10 out of 10
Thanks for a great stay :) will deff use this hotel again when we go to the arts Center again

Although have not stayed myself, friends have and have had a very good welcome with clean comfortable rooms. The Sunday lunch cooked by Amanda is proper home cooking.

My wife and I stayed at The Dillwyn Arms Hotel at the end of November along with friends, we were accommodated in two very spacious and well equipped en-suite rooms which were delightfully furnished and spotlessly clean. What a great stay we had!
We had noted the recent comment on Trip Advisor but were assured by friends living locally that the hotel was under new ownership and they recommended so we booked. We enjoyed 3 fantastic nights visiting the show caves and the wonderful Brecon Beacons, we were greeted with a warm welcome by the managers and the food and service was superb, would highly recommend the Sunday lunches...worth a visit just to indulge in them alone!
We`ll be back!

accom1, Manager at The Dillwyn Arms Hotel, responded to this review, January 5, 2011
We would like to point out that the business is under new private ownership with effect from 1st November 2010. We have made improvements and a lot of money has been spent on the property to bring it in line with the requirements of a 3 star hotel. Our prices are the same for 2011 as they were for 2010. We would like to make welcome any guests, old and new.
