Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

First impressions are important. The exterior of the hotel is dilapidated and run down and completely off putting. Once inside, the interior was much better. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. Pillows, however, were far too hard. Breakfast was only from 7 to 9 which is nowhere near long enough. Service at breakfast was appalling, taking more than 20 minutes to produce 2 plates of bacon and egg. Bar and lounge only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Sadly, would not recommend this establishment.

I would not call this a hotel. I stayed here four years ago and it was absolutely beautiful. Went back for a funeral booked two rooms both rooms in very poor condition. No food no drink no bar no restaurant just breakfast had to check out the room was smelly The furniture has not been cleaned in years. The shower door was broken, no receptionist and on checkout, give our keys to the girl serving breakfast and said that we were checking out her response blank she didn’t ask us why we were checking out early. Very disappointing. The only reason I give it one star was the breakfast was edible?

Difficult to gain access, as reception is not fully manned. Many aspects are quite dated. The bathroom was a big let down, quite a few repairs needed throughout. Breakfast was not as expected. Mouldy bread was served. Not somewhere I would stay in a hurry.

The hotel is in a great location, close to the station and the east of the town centre. The staff are friendly, the room was spotless, the bed very comfortable and our two night stay was great value. Worth considering if you are visiting the area.

The title says it all really. They couldn't care about their appearance so they don't care about their customers. From the heady heights of La Mancha this has now descended into a farce of a restaurant. Tired, lazy, disinterested! What used to be such a nice place to visit in Neath is now just an embarrassment.

Once quite smart, I suspect, this is running down. I wanted to like it, as part of a return to the town of my birth. Service was always friendly and the physical infrastructure looks quite smart but it seems as though circumstances have forced it to be penny pinching. I suspect when first fitted out it was a genuine four star hotel, but things like: a really poor breakfast buffet and incredibly long waits for hot food; bath towels but no hand towel in the room; many items on the bar menu available; faded sign outside with a letter missing - this is a sub-Travelodge offer in a building that could do much more. Positioned as a budget hotel it might surprise expectations, as a four star hotel it can only disappoint. Which is a shame because the staff were lovely.

Very clean hotel, comfortable beds, very spacious rooms which have been fitted to a very high standard but a few mistakes have been made. Such as MDF bath panels which are blown and unsightly, surfaces which are not resistant to hot cups. If going at the end of the week ask for a room at the back because there is a night club opposite which spills out onto the road with music, drunken shouting going on until long past 2.00 am. Convenient location for shops and station though.

To be fair to the hotel, from the outside. You think oh god what have I done. But the service was impeccable. The young lass was very welcoming. She went above and was courteous. She made sure we were looked after. The rooms were super spacious. You don't get that in a premier inn. If you are going to book. Do check out the website. They serve Indian food. The place was clean and tidy. Food was excellent. I say give them a chance. I wish them good luck and hope as they grow they make the hotel even better. Big shout out to the girl in reception. You are a credit to your hotel.

The 4 star rating is a joke. Where do I start! Sofas in the lobby are filthy. Guy who welcomed us on reception had his ear buds in.....not the greatest customer service. Twin beds move on castors, which do not lock. Furniture has seen better days with chips and scrapes everywhere. Bathroom was geared up for a disabled person and was therefore an accessible room but that's not what i booked. Air conditioning controls in bedroom but there was none. No toilet seat, flush was questionable, sink too low and feet couldn't touch the floor when using the toilet. I'm 5 foot 3 so average for a female and should be able to touch the ground! Breakfast was inedible. Three breakfasts ordered the same were all different. Mushrooms were slimy, bacon was burnt, eggs look plastic and clearly cooked in old oil. Sausages were horrid, looked wrinkly and were on the yellow side. I would avoid this place like the plague... not worth the money at all.
