“Perfect for BPW”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed here before riding Bike Park Wales. The room was lovely, very good value for money. Bikes were stored securely for us. The breakfast was great. The carvery in the evening was even better. We WILL definitely be staying here again when we return.

The carvery in the Bessemer is one of the best around. Food is well cooked plenty to choose from and good value for money. Gareth is always pleasant and polite when carving your meat. Would recommend a visit for Sunday lunch or a meal during the week.

Me and my partner stayed for 5 days while away on business 2weeks ago. The staff cudnt have been anymore helpful ensuring that all our needs were met ( at the time I was 3 weeks post major knee surgery and on crutches ). The food was all home cooked food and the carvery is out of this world, at breakfast we were able to select the items we would like and each morning it was excellent. The room was pleasant and cleaned everyday. We will definitely be stopping again if in the area. Thank you once again to all the staff for your help and consideration.

Stayed 3 nights. Nothing special, but not bad either: clean cosy room and hot water is enough. Breakfast was a bit of disappointment with limited choice. Although the freshly cooked eggs/beans etc made up for i suppose. Some fruit, croissants, pancakes might be nice (ie. continental).
The dinner was as bland as can be, and overpriced (no herbs/spices on the chicken!?)
As I went for touring around Brecon Beacons, it's a fantastic location between all the main tourist sites. If I was to go South Wales again, I'd consider staying here again.

we as a local business often book rooms for our customers in this hotel but never again.
Most hotels adopt a 24 hr cancellation policy which is acceptable but considering that we made the booking at 10am in the morning and due to our customer having problems travelling from London we cancelled the booking at 2.30pm but we were still charged. After querying this charge, The Manageress told us that a waitress had picked the phone up and had no right to confirm the cancellation? After pointing out the fact that their staff actions were not our problem she promptly slammed the phone down.
Customer service at this Hotel is non existent when it comes to the Manageress. Proceed with caution when booking with this Hotel. Lovely Carvery shame about the Customer service. No disrespect to Waitresses but they should not be allowed to answer the phone to any customers

We were visiting nearby attractions next day so Bessemer was very handy and well located. Rooms clean and spacious with excellent wifi. Nice bathroom
Breakfast nice and freshly cooked. We did not have evening meal in the hotel (our choice) - we used the newish Weatherspoons in MT.
Good price and would recommend.

Room Tip: we had room on first floor which overlooked rear car-park.....no problem.
