Castle Hotel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Neath
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We stayed in a fantastic family room (shame some of the lights didn't work!). Excellent value a good room in a lovely hotel in the centre of Neath. Handy for the town and The Castle and to the Vale of Neath

The room was fine and VERY good value. The bar and restaurant were a great surprise. A good bar with excellent food. We ate the Stroganoff and it was excellent and well priced. The bar was comfortable and well appointed

Good staff throughout the hotel and the entertainment (guitar/vocalist) in the Restaurant/Lounge was an added bonus

Our mountain biking group have stayed here 3 times now and it's a bery friendly place and great value for money. Food is hearty (especially if you like chips!), and staff very helpful. It's nice and clean and there's a secure car park and bike lock up. Definitely recommend a visit if you're riding the local trail centres

This is my 3rd stay at this hotel for a mountain biking weekend and yet again it has not failed me. Excellent food and very courteous staff. Excellent for mountain biker groups for long weekends, car parking and a huge lockup for storing bikes. Thanks.

Ideally placed in the centre of Neath with a carpark (which is a big plus as parking otherwise is difficult). Good size room. Central heating via the radiators wasn't working though there was a heater in the room; this meant the bathroom was rather chilly. (My visit was a very cold day in March).
Restaurant attached was excellent and the breakfast there was of a high standard. Bar nicely decorated with shirts signed by Welsh Rugby players.

Peter, Thank you for your comments. We are delighted that you liked your room, since your stay we have had heating engineers look into the issues you mentioned and this has now been rectified. i was pleased that you found our breakfast to be of a high standard as we have recently upgraded our continental buffet to include a very high quality Welsh selection along with homemade jam & marmalade & have been awarded 4* by Visit Wales for our breakfast . finally, its good to hear you appreciated our Welsh Rugby theme in the Lounge bar celebrating the Hotel being the birthplace of the Welsh Rugby Union.

Once again another enjoyable stay at the very Mountain Biker friendly venue. Off street parking and large secure lock up for the Mountain Bikes. Staff very attentive especially at breakfast and evening meal. The breakfast selection is fantastic and just the job to set you up for a day trying to stay on a Mtb. Interesting old building, comfy bar & restaurant with good food, great staff. Well recommended. Thank you.

Fantastic time. Very good staff. Couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast very good. Evening meal good. A good base for mtb. (Afan, cwmcarn, brechfa, bike park wales). Large garage to lock your bike in. Staff were very tolerant of the mud that we brought in with us. Thanks. We have been to this hotel a few times and it has always been good. Only slight problem is that they don't have a good selection of real ale. We will be back next year.
