Nice hotel very helpful staff. Just needs a little cleaning on the leisure side pool, sauna.
Can be a little loud if a function is on. WiFi free with a password, but didn't work for ours.
Breakfast nice.

Room Tip: Family room are side sea views but still pretty if the sun ever shines.

I booked four twin rooms last Saturday as we too went to the Heineken Cup final at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.An easy train ride to and from Cardiff and a safe place to leave the cars at the hotel.

Not pretty from the outside but A1 on the inside.Rooms were just right and clean.

We had a meal and drinks in the bar after the match - great food and very friendly and efficient staff. Had a surprise on Sunday morning - the sun came out and we saw the long,sandy beach just across the road.

Fab hotel. There's not much in Port Talbot. We stayed here as we went to see the Heineken cup final and with Cardiff hotels booked up, Port Talbots a train ride from Cardiff! The hotel is lovely, our room looked out over the beautiful sandy bay.
When we booked the hotel I worried it looked a a little run down from the outside, but don't be fooled. It's a a fabulous, modern hotel inside!
Really quiet hotel, even though they had a function on Saturday when we stayed. I would gladly come here with my two young children or parents. Room was lovely and had a sofa bed that also made up to a double for children. Very peaceful nights sleep. Food was brilliant. Staff great. Nice little swimming pool too.
Had a very relaxing stay!
If your visiting Port Talbot and want to eat out, Cafe Remos is the place to go, but that's another review : D

I recently attended a weightwatchers ball here and as my mum and i were travelling from Merthyr we decided to pay the very reasonable room price and stay the night. Great location for a lovely walk along the seafront and comfortable, clean accomadation with beautiful views. Nothing too much trouble for staff on duty and the food was very nice.

We used this hotel for one night whilst attending a wedding there. We were a bit disappointed when we arrived as the exterior is not terribly attractive. However, I have nothing but good things to say!
The reception area was lovely and the staff very polite and helpful.
There is a small swimming pool that is open all day with lots of seating around. The sauna and jacuzzi were very enjoyable!
I can't comment on cleaning staff. However, our family room was all set up ready for us and was spotlessly clean. Plenty of towels and toiletries were also provided. Shower was great and also had a bath if that's what you prefer.
This was a great value hotel overall and we would definately use it again. Shame the weather wasn't good enough for us o go to the beach!
