Blanco's Hotel & Restaurant

Reviewed 3 January 2014

We stayed at this well located hotel in early December. Although the hotel was very clean - oh dear when we arrived we couldn't hear what the reception staff were saying as it was so noisy and it didn't stop being noisy until nearly 1am. Not much sleep with that din going on!!!
We had a problem with the bolshy restaurant manager. Don't think he had any customer relation skills. The waitress staff were run off their feet but you expect that with lots of Christmas parties going on at the same time. All in all I wont be rushing back but if you want to be near Port Talbot Centre and want a clean and tidy hotel I would recommend it. If you want good service seek elsewhere

I knew as soon as i pulled into the car park we were going to have an excellant night, how right i was.After checking into my room which again was very good we met our friends in the bar had a few beers before getting ready for the new years party.We were shown to our table and shortly afterwards starters were served followed by an excellant carvery and dessert all were presented and tasted really lovely.Disco and a very good cabaret filled the evening through until 1.30 am it was a really great night.The friendly and courteous stay made our stay very pleasant indeed, the price for dining,entertainment and overnight stay is excellant value for money YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

Room Tip: I have reviewed this place several times and can only say good things about it.

We used to dine here regularly but the food quality has declined over the past six months. Really disappointing! The steaks are definitely not from the same supplier as the taste, size and quality are not as good as they were. The staff are friendly and courteous. Ideal place to stay for dinner, cabaret , B & B but they need to revert back to their original standards.

Port Talbot is not a tourist attraction but its position is great. Blancos is not a pretty hotel but it is a good place to stay. It is very popular, with many parties and events BUT this does not affect the quietness or service. It is a smooth and very well managed operation. A busy restaurant provides well made food efficiently and in a calm atmosphere. Rooms a very adequate and breakfast is the quiet well stocked buffet that travellers enjoy.

Tiny portions of Christmas dinner (1 roast potato and parsnip each!)
Tiny piece of gateux for pudding
One member of the party couldn't attend following an accident. The party 'wasn't allowed' a refund or a credit note and was not allowed to take a portion of food back for the unwell person. No-one else in the party was allowed to eat the food either!! Daylight robbery!! Also a manager was 'not available' to discuss the situation. Awful service, small portions and theft.
Not the best Christmas lunch.

Good hotel with A lively bar and function room. The restaurant at Blanco's is very good. We had a show and stay package for a motown night. These packages are just brilliant value for money. Great food in the restaurant and a brilliant breakfast

Stayed one night ( 7th Nov ) First room had 4 bulbs out of 7 not working! Staff moved to us to another room. Not getting back until late evening the room we were given smelt of tobacco smoke. Couldn't be bothered to change at that late.........( no smoking policy in whole hotel, obviously not monitored! ) When mentioned, the staff offered an up-grade for next visit. Whether we go again is debatable! Breakfast was okay & staff were helpful and attentive. Overall not worth £65/night.
2nd room was good, spacious & well adequate for a short stay. View was crap, but hey this is an Industrial conerbation.

Room Tip: Get a room at rear away from main road.
