This is a great place to stay and at £80 for the room including breakfast for 2 good value too. Our room on the 3rd floor (one of the white rooms) was suprisingly large with a massive bathroom. The shower was both hot and powerful. The bath large and roomy. The bed was exceptionally comfortable.
We ate in the restuarant both nights of our stay and enjoyed everything we ate. There is a bar where we were able to enjoy a good pint of guinness watching the euro football. Breakfast was good and the full english could be quite overwhelming !!
All the young staff were friendly and helpful. Even though some of them have to double up in both the bar and restaurant. Overall the service was very good.
Other reviewers have mentioned some noise disruption at weekends but we stayed in midweek and there was none at all.
Overall this is a great place to stay and if in the area Pontypridd would make a good base to explore the area.
The only downside is that some roads are being replaced with fancy block paving and there is some disruption in the town centre. However this does not outweigh the good points of the hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Blueberry Inn is a unique hotel located in the centre of Pontypridd, South Wales. Owned by the Pontypridd Market Company and formerly known as the Market Tavern, this 5 storey building underwent a drastic overhaul, with refurishments taking up to two years for completion. The Blueberry Inn had a grand re-opening in December 2008 which did not disappoint, worth waiting two years for the Blueberry Inn shocked and amazed with its dramatic makeover, what was once the Market Tavern seemed completely unrecognisible with many finding it hard to believe it was the same building. The Blueberry will blow you away with it's attention to detail and design. All the rooms are fully equipped with all the mod cons and have all the comfort's you would expect from a top end hotel. The building itself is host to a superb bar and restaurant serving a variety of exquisite cuisine, with breakfast available from 7am, lunch specials from 12pm and a la carte from 6pm. Also host to two exceptional function rooms, on the first floor, the kalma lounge, a boudair themed function room that has played host to a variety of events from wedding receptions to charity nights. Down in the basement you will find the Glo bar, the smallest of the two, this ice themed room with built in wall water features is a real favourite for childrens parties. On the whole the Blueberry Inn is a real gem in the heart of the Valleys and worth a visit for whatever the occasion ... more less
