I have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Glen Usk, supporting Scotland in the British Isles Bowling Championships, that were taking place.
Having checked Trip Advisor prior to going, I wasn't holding out much hope.
The hotel looked nice from the outside and overlooked the park. Once inside the hotel, It was clear why the hotel hasn't had the best reviews. In need of a make over is an understaitment - the hotel was very tired, run down and grubby. My room was spacious with view nice views the front however the views made up for the room which wasn't as nice. A worn out pink carpet floored the whole area including the bathroom. A very green mouldy area greeted me at the side of the bath - disgusting. The walls were scuffed and headboards were old.
Just as well I was mainly using the room to sleep - I couldn't wait to get out the room.
Breakfast however was nice. Lots to choose from including a lovely cooked breakfast, made to order. The older waiter guy wasn't the most friendliest Welsh person I had met!! Grumpy, curt and seemed to favour the other Welsh guests who were also staying! We were left waiting a number of times while he seen to the other guests even though were waiting longer!
The night security guard, however was friendly and went out his way when we asked for a drink at the bar (which was closed later on one night). He kindly opened the bar and served us without a fuss and made us very welcome. He even offered to put the TV on for us.
I doubt I will be back in Llandrindod Wells, however I would choose the Metropole (more expensive but a beautiful hotel with spa facilities etc) if I was ever to return.
