Studios at Glenthorne
Ranked #2 of 11 Merthyr Tydfil B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Without doubt, the best self-catering accommodation I have ever stayed in! Superb hosts, attention to detail and comfort. I stayed in studio 2 which was superbly equipped with everything you'd need and a convection oven, a power shower and even complimentary welsh cakes, fruit and chocolates. The bed is so comfortable, the fridge well stocked and the wifi is extremely fast. Claire is a lovely host and I will definitely return. The value for money is amazing. In a quiet area of Merthyr with the Brecon Beacons less than 10 minutes drive away. Amazing!

Not an area of Wales I know very well but because was meeting up with friends needed to be in Merthyr Tydfil. The accommodation provided was really lovely, the décor and the fittings so well thought out . Also so unusual to have the facilities of your own kitchenette, could even have done my washing if I had been there longer! The Harris` couldn`t have been more welcoming and there was plenty of local information, visitors guide provided in the studio. Would like to have stayed longer and wouldn`t hesitate to recommend this as a place to stay.

Room Tip: At present the studio is the only accommodation available but I gather a similar set up will eventua...

We stayed at Glenthorne for the weekend of the Brecon Jazz festival, its an easy 30 min drive to Brecon town and the Brecon Beacons national Park. We really loved the flexibility the the studio offers as we were able to cook and eat in if we wanted too.

The building is an old victorian family home, that has been modernized with a really quirky style, best option we saw for staying in Merthyr Tydfil and the owners were really helpful and friendly.

The best bit was the fresh chicken eggs, from the hens in the garden!!
