The bed was comfortable, but in the sweltering heat, the duvet was too thick.
The headboard and other surfaces were very dusty. The bathroom shower was weak, and the door did not shut properly. If you are old or infirm, the step up into the shower-cum-bath would be a huge challenge. There was no non stick matt in the shower.
The road below was incredibly noisy late into the night from people; drunk or otherwise and I was woken at 5am twice.
There was a fire alarm at 5am, that wasn't welcome - although out of the hotels control, it did highlight that there were no fire safety procedures in the bedrooms. - very poor.
The car park was quite far from the hotel, though free.
I won't be returning.

- The Blueberry Inn is a unique hotel located in the centre of Pontypridd, South Wales. Owned by the Pontypridd Market Company and formerly known as the Market Tavern, this 5 storey building underwent a drastic overhaul, with refurishments taking up to two years for completion. The Blueberry Inn had a grand re-opening in December 2008 which did not disappoint, worth waiting two years for the Blueberry Inn shocked and amazed with its dramatic makeover, what was once the Market Tavern seemed completely unrecognisible with many finding it hard to believe it was the same building. The Blueberry will blow you away with it's attention to detail and design. All the rooms are fully equipped with all the mod cons and have all the comfort's you would expect from a top end hotel. The building itself is host to a superb bar and restaurant serving a variety of exquisite cuisine, with breakfast available from 7am, lunch specials from 12pm and a la carte from 6pm. Also host to two exceptional function rooms, on the first floor, the kalma lounge, a boudair themed function room that has played host to a variety of events from wedding receptions to charity nights. Down in the basement you will find the Glo bar, the smallest of the two, this ice themed room with built in wall water features is a real favourite for childrens parties. On the whole the Blueberry Inn is a real gem in the heart of the Valleys and worth a visit for whatever the occasion ... more less
