“Good hotel”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

A nice straightforward hotel. Good check in, nice room. The room was a very good size and good to do some paperwork in. The hotel says it only has wired Internet, I got an excellent wi fi signal.
My room overlooked a busy road and it is rather bleak around the hotel, but the double glazing was excellent so I slept well.
Happy to stay agin

Stayed in Blanco's for a long period and would definitely go back, good location and friendly staff, you can also use facilities in sister hotel 10 minutes away. Recommended for business stay and/or long-term stay. Best internet connection I ever had in hotel, and free!

Just had the most wonderful hotel experience here at Blanco's. The hotel has a large, modern lounge and reception areas, tastefully decorated. Restaurant also very inviting with an excellent menu, four of us dined and had different meals, great portions and cooked to perfection. Nice touch using local produce! Desserts to die for! The only shock was the prices...............Very very reasonable! Dont know how they do it but I have been to restaurants with a lack of staff, poor meals and smaller portions but paid twice as much! We stayed in one of the suites which was very spacious and modern, bed was huge and comfortable, bathroom was spotless. The hotels greatest asset is its staff, never have I seen such friendly and happier staff, nothing was too much trouble and this applied to every single one! and there are plenty of them! Its just a few minutes from J41 off the M4, not a scenic location, but the hotel makes up for that! It is also so handy as a base to travel around South Wales and if your not driving then the train station is just down the road, which is on the main line connecting Carmarthen, Swansea, Cardiff and London . The hotel does lack leisure facilities however its sister hotel "Towers hotel & spa" is about a 15 minute drive away and guests are allowed to use all of its leisure facilities. HATS OFF to you guys! I wont be staying in Swansea or Cardiff anymore its Port Talbot for me. I will even just use the restaurant which is also another plus. RECOMMEND HIGHLY PROVE ME WRONG!

We came here for the Carribean weekend. We meet early with friends & had lunch which was good Nice price & a tasty meal. The room was a good size & a kingsize bed . The bathroom was a reasonable size, everything worked well. Had a lovely meal plenty of it, desert was fab. The only thing I found the a/c was far too cold for me, I was freezing.It suited the others It didn't help as I sat under it. The Carribean group weren't that good, as they only played reggae. Which they don't play there in the Carribean. The other music they played was much better.everyone enjoyed. I would recommend the hotel & would go back.

Room Tip: There is only 2 floors.

To celebrate our 1st year Wedding anniversary, we booked an evening meal and overnight stay at Blancos.

Arrived shortly after 15:00, greeted by pleasant hosts at the reception desk and promptly shown to our room. Our room was spotlessly clean, modern, comfortable and ideal for short term stays. Only one fault was the bed side lamp did not work but this did not impair on out overall experience.

Sat down in the restaurant at 19:00, for our evening meal. Once again staff were pleasant, polite and very efficient. My wife and I both had porter house steak with all the trimmings etc. Both meals were neatly present, piping hot and most importantly delicious.

After the meal we decided to sit down in the new lounge area. This is the new extension that has been added to the establishment. There was evening entertainment provided free of charge and on this particular event it was a singer by the name of Ricky G, who was excellent.

Overall we had a fantastic experience and would highly recommend to others.

Stayed here for a business trip. For that reason conveniently located. Hotel is quite big with fairly modern lounge and restaurant. The room was a good size with a modern and clean bathroom.
The only big minus was the breakfast. Tasteless, greasy, no cheese or cold cuts and minimal choise of fruits.
The personel in the restaurant a bit clueless.

We arrived quite late and were welcomed enthusiastically, the restaurant was still open and very accommodating, the food and service was to a good standard. Our room was good and breakfast was okay.
A very nice touch which was much appreciated was that they allowed us to change in our room later in the day after attending a lunch time function. great service, will certainly stay there again
