The Bessemer Hotel is on the eastern outskirts of Merthyr in a relatively quiet area. The staff are very pleasant especially the young lady who had to make several trips up and down the stairs sorting out a problem with our room key. The room was comfortable and adequately furnished. My bed was alright but my son's bed was rather...

Nice overnight stay, friendly welcome and comfy, very clean rooms. Nice quiet area, breakfast was continental but more than adequate. Overall a nice relaxing overnight stay. Good free wifi. Try the Indian restaurant up the road called Qmin, great food.

Have visited many times and roast has always been nice, you do have to queue for a while as it is self serve carvery. Have visited once for an evening meal (chips gammon) etc but wouldn't go again as food was not that good. Best for roast dinners.

Never been before but went for a friends birthday and the food was amazing - highly recommended! You can even get a takeaway if you take your own plate. Now that we have discovered this little gem in Merthyr we will definitely be revisiting soon with family

We are 4 couples, 3 of whom were planning to pitch our tents and 1 who booked into the Bessemer (as they are too old to camp!). 2 days before our planned weekend meet up, 1 couple checked the weather forecast for the area - we were so glad they did! The weather forecast was 50mph gales and torrential rain....
