Travelled to this hotel with my husband who was on business. After over 4 hours travelling we arrived at the car park and was not impressed with the exterior of the hotel. No garden as such, just a piece of lawn at the front and no outdoor seating area which was a shame because it was a beautiful September day. Just a car park that led straight into reception. Reception area quite impressive and not what we expected from looking at the exterior. Check-in was quick and efficient and we were allocated a top floor room with a sea view. Room was standard and quite small but very nicely furnished and bed was comfortable. Bathroom again quite small but functional. View from the room was excellent and the sun-set was spectacular. The seating in the bar area was very good and had obviously been recently refurbished. The restaurant was pleasant and the food excellent. My sea bass and my husband's rib-eye steak was beautifully cooked and very well presented and we sent our compliments to the Chef. Staff well trained and efficient. Wines very reasonable. Breakfast was good and plentiful. My husband asked if he could have an omelette (not on the menu) and the waitress said she was sure the chef would oblige so we both ordered one. What a shame we couldn't finish it because it was delicious but it was huge - so much so that we both left some and felt guilty doing so. My husband went off to his appointment the next morning and I took a walk on the seafront to the right of the hotel (the left takes in the view of Port Talbot steel works). The beach looked lovely and went on for miles. My walk took me past a couple of cafes and an ice-cream parlour, a children's play-ground and an open air swimming pool which was closed. In summer I should imagine that it was a very busy area. Very clean. Again, had there been outdoor seating I would have sat reading my book but was very comfortable waiting for my husband in the bar area. Coffee was surprising good and inexpensive. All in all a very comfortable stay and we would certainly use the hotel again if in the area.
