Was here on business with my colleagues, holding a hearing clinic on the 21st March. Stayed over the night before, and hired our the 3 conference rooms the next day. The rooms where very clean and well maintained, food was great and the staff practically bent over backwards to make sure our needs we're met for our Hearing Clinic. I cannot begin to stress enough how much we enjoyed our stay and look forward to the next one. Anyone looking to hold a seminar or business meeting please consider holding it here if your local to the area. It's worth every penny!!

Good points- just off the motorway, plenty of parking and clean and functional accommodation. Great staff, professional and friendly. Rod and Kaylea stand out but lovely staff all round. Breakfast was standard HIE- shame no veggie sausage option. Had a deal including dinner on the first night- which if we had paid the menu price we would have been seriously disappointed. Presentation was fine but the food quality was generally sub Wetherspoons and grossly overpriced for what it was. The second night we went to the adjacent Harvester- very busy, good staff again but pretty dull food again.

Great staff, good accommodation value and decent room but avoid the dinner option. Good base for exploring the Pembrokeshire Coast and the Gower.

Room Tip: Rooms facing motorway fine. No road noise.

I used this hotel as part of a coach party on a weekend away and found that it lived up to the Trip Advisor ratings.
The staff dealt with the deluge of our party quickly and efficiently with great patience with some of the party!!
The hotel is very clean and well maintained, the staff friendly and the rooms comfortable.
After our evening out in Neath we returned and the pleasant bar which served hot and cold alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and stayed open well after midnight !!
The only downside and most guests will know this and accept it knowingly is that the hotel has nothing of interest other than a Harvester Restaurant and a Virgin Health Club close to it. The plus side is that it is very close to the M4 motorway.
All in all this was a positive experience

Room Tip: I suspect no room has a good view but those facing the motorway might see the hills.
