Blanco's Hotel & Restaurant
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Port Talbot
Reviewed July 6, 2014

I stay at Blancos regularly, maybe once a month or so for business and personal visits to Port Talbot. I grew up there...Port Talbot not Blancos. It is the best hotel in the town as far as value, friendly staff, modern fit out and consistently good rooms is concerned. I pay £55 or £60 a night for a clean, well appointed double room and a great help yourself breakfast. I never write reviews but tonight, again, the staff have bent over backwards for me, meeting my fussy requirements for a room in just the right place and printing a few pages for me without the normal hotel extortion charges! Room-wise, I recommend the first or top floor on the "Church" side if you want the most quiet part but most places away from the entrance are good. Weekends you have entertainment on Fridays and Saturdays in the bar and sometimes the function rooms on the first floor and it's loud but always friendly and not an issue in the rooms I have stayed in. If you like your peace and quiet then check with staff and they will say what's on and they have always tried to find me a quiet room when I've asked. The setting si not pretty, but there's not many places in the centre of Port Talbot that are...but inside the hotel is modern, friendly and mostly busy which says a lot!

Room Tip: If you like your quiet then first or second floors on the church side seem generally best but I'...

Great food at Blancos, had a wedding lunch there with 5 adults and 1 child, great choice, big portions and staff very attentive. Recommended. Going to stay overnight the next time and sample the breakfast which I believe is locally sourced produce.

An excellent place to stay. The most comfortable beds, terrific eating facilities and friendly staff. Due to sickness we needed early access to a room, the staff were so accommodating and helpful. We highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Just go there.

stayed here on Friday and Saturday for a short notice weekend away and had a lovely time...
lovely quiet bedroom (despite there being a wedding party on the same floor) and a really great cooked breakfast. We also tried the restaurant on the first night and that was lovely too.

Excellent value for money and well placed to explore the local area.

Room Tip: rooms at the ends of the hotel may be the quietest ones..not that this is a noisy hotel at all I am...

This is definitely not a 5 star hotel but the quality and service is above average for the price point.

Very friendly and helpful staff here. Rooms are spacious and clean.

Quite convenient location, there is a Tesco just few minutes' drive from the hotel.

Food at Blanco's restaurant tastes nice but portions are overwhelming.

Overall, a pleasant stay at Port Talbot.
