Went for lunch here with large family group, had loads of space to ourselves, staff looked after us well, nothing was too much trouble.

Food was lovely and good value, we had a set lunch.

The hotel inside is nothing like outside!

Title sums it up, it looks very worn out and out dated from the outside but inside is a well kept great hotel with lovely staff. Food is good too, there is a good range of bar meals at mostly under a tenner and the breakfast was nice with good service.

Stayed at the hotel to celebrate a year of married life. As we were married here I would recommend it for any wedding. Fantastic facilities and a warm and friendly environment make you want to keep going back. For our most recent stay the pool, food and of course the room were first class.

Have stayed here many times and changes to the pool area have not worked. The pool was cold, the spa not as warm as usual and the sauna cold. Hope they sort the problems caused by these changes out, by the time we are due to stay again later in 2014.

I recently stayed two nights at the Aberavon hotel and I have to say that it surpassed my expectations! When we arrived my heart did sink a bit as the building looks like a 1970's concrete part of a hospital wing... but as soon as you step inside its a different matter. You can tell its all been refurbished and feels airy, clean and fresh! All the staff we met couldnt do enough for us and were always friendly and helpful. The food was a bit overpriced but as it was a treat staying at a hotel we didnt grumble and it was lovely! We had a family room which was large and clean but I think you have to be a member of Mensa to work out the lights as there were a lot of switches and we never did work out the combination to work the right ones!! The only downside is the pool...... while the rest of the hotel has been overhauled you can tell that the pool hasnt been, as others have commented it was freezing... literally. The pool wasnt the cleanest either as it was old and in places chipped. If you have kids then they wont mind the cold, mine didnt and happily jumped in, but for adults.. no thanks. I think that this area of the hotel really lets it down and hopefully perhaps they will take notice of the reviews and give it an refurb. Apart from that moan the hotel is great and we will definately stay there again.
