Three Saints Hotel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Pontyclun
Reviewed 18 September 2006

We recently spent a night at the hotel - now called The Three Saints by its new owners - and it was awful.
The reception is shabby, the room even shabbier and it could seriously do with a major refurbishment.
I had booked a double room (non-smoking) but it smelled of smoke and despite asking for another room we were told there was not one available, even though we only saw a handful of other people at breakfast!
There were stains on the carpet, a rusty shower curtain pole and the whole room was just dated and scruffy. The only redeeming thing was that the toilet seemed clean.
The service at breakfast the next morning was also appalling and the waitresses (all foreign) could barely understand us.
I will NEVER go back there!

We visited the Hotel,for a one night stay,shortly after it had changed it's name.Upon arrival
the exterior looked "tired". On entering, the reception area was scruffy and in need of decoration.Our keys were on a dirty,much altered paper tag and on entering our bedroom,found the light switches filthy and greasy.The furniture was very old and inpoor condition, the light over the bed had no light bulb fitted and no independant switch.
The toilet door lock was smashed and the door could not be locked, the rubber plug for the basin was too big and would not keep the wate in. The whole room was therefore in a very poor condition.Overall I would have been very embarassed to be British if an overseas visited had visited and thought that we found these conditions acceptable. It really was "third world"
On the good side ,the bed clothes were very clean, as were the towels. The food served iIn the breakfast area,which was of a much higher standard of decor,was well presented and excellent value.The cutlery and crockery were very clean.

Nice clean hotel, good price and great food. Lots of facilities, including a new gym. If you find yourself in Pontyclun and need a place to stay look no further. The staff is attentive and helpful and the hotel is charming. I would stay at this hotel again.
