“Perfect location. Great Bunk house, facilities and hosts”

100% recommended. That's the short version

The Taff Trail bunk house is the perfect place to stay if planning a couple of days at Bike Park Wales. We booked it for 5 of us and it was SPOT ON. It's better suited for 4, but 5 is OK in the larger bunk with one on sofa bed.

Phil and Sue are brilliant hosts. They are there if you need them, but not if you don't

The downstairs has an honesty box system with essential foods, cleaning and toiletries.

They've also got a washing machine and very convenient tumble drier.

The only MINOR criticism was the shower... not sure if it's just when BOTH bunks are using showers at same time, but ours was flipping between hot and cold. But that's something we were all happy to live with.

“Perfect weekend at Bike Park Wales”

Booked both sides of the bunkhouse for a group of 10 planning a weekend at Bike Park Wales. Facilities were excellent, reception was warm and friendly
Each side has room for 5 and its own kitchen and bathroom and separate doors keys etc so would have no qualms sharing with another group if there were fewer of us
Lock up for the bikes and external steel doors everywhere make security excellent.
Had 2 nights here and we all agreed we would definitely return.
Out the back door you are right onto the trail and from here its less than 2 miles to the Bike Park which is ideal.

“Mountain bike weekend”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed at the Tafftrail bunkhouse as a base for our 9 person group weekend at the nearby bike park.

The Bike park itself is a relatively easy 15 minute cycle.

This place is excellent for a group of people using the bike park - there was 9 of us - 4 in one apartment/bunk and 5 in the other,.

There was a welcome pint of milk and some coffee/tea making stuff waiting for us, the owner greeted us and was very helpful and friendly. The facilities is just what we needed - a safe place to store our bikes - including use of a hosepipe to clean the bikes. shower and kitchen and bathroom for each bunk - the beds had sheets on them and a comfortable and clean pillow and duvet each. The room was nice and warm and all amenities worked. Plenty parking for several vehicles. A fridge to keep the booze cold. Room out the back (a sort of balcony) which could accommodate a BBQ.

I would highly recommend this place for any groups of people using the area who do not mind communal living. Excellent value for money.

Thanks for helping make a great weekend and I look forward to returning next year.
