Booked a afternoon spa package for myself and mum for my birthday treat back in July, It's only down the road from me so that was a bonus. We had a treatment, light lunch and use of the facilities. Have to say it was really relaxing, we both had manicures and the girl who did them was so friendly. The swimming pool area is beautiful, it's like a starry night so relaxing. Lunch wasn't bad, choice of sandwich, baguette or pasta and you can get chips with it. Only niggle is that a drink could of been included and when I looked into it, pricing the treatment, lunch etc it seem to be much of a deal when I thought as a package you're supposed to save money? Anyway apart from that I would go again if it's for a special occasion, spent about 4 hrs there as we took advantage of the pool, sauna, steam room to get our moneys worth.
We were in Wales because my daughter was getting married at the nearby Ogmore Castle. My daughter was getting ready for her wedding at the hotel and then staying for a couple of nights afterwards. Many of the wedding guests stayed the night of the wedding and my daughter arranged a special deal for those nights. The venue was a very popular choice to hold weddings at - with at least 2 weddings a day held there over the bank holiday weekend. His made it a very busy place. The breakfast each morning was well done. The bar food which we had most nights also had a good selection/menu. The pool/spa area I felt needed updating it felt dated. Some parts of the motel were very standard - my son and and nephew had a terrible room the second night they were there. Our room was comfortable enough and looked into a nice garden courtyard. My daughter had one of the bridal suites for her and her bridesmaids to get ready in. It was a large enough suite but not so modern and a little dated especially the bathroom - but being in the ground floor which opened into the garden court yard made it very convenient for the photographer to start taking photos of the girls. Overall our stay at the Heronstone was very comfortable and all the staff very helpful and friendly.
A good sized room with plenty of space for the sofa, with patio doors onto a courtyard garden. Bathroom seems newly & completely refurbished. Excellent & tucked away from bar & wedding party room. The hotel is fairly "stretched out" which means you're unlikely to be disturbed by the various functions it hosts. Disappointed we didn't have time to explore the leisure facilities. Staff also very helpful.
Would recommend a stay here at best western heronston hotel. Staff are friendly and kind and cannot do enough for you! If you want a warm welcome, comfortable and remarkable stay then go here. The rooms are extremely clean and the breakfast has so much choice and is beautiful. Spa is a must!!
We had booked a room at the Heronston several months before traveling to Wales. We booked through the Best Western web site and reserved one of only 2 suites in the hotel. We followed up our reservation by attempting to contact the hotel directly through their published email address with specific questions. After 3 attempts with no response we went to the Tripadvisor forum to see if they were still in business and if other guests could help. To our surprise the hotel promptly responded through the forum. From there we communicated directly with reception to verify that we had indeed reserved a suite and that the suites had air conditioning. The answer to both questions was yes. Upon arrival, we walked into complete chaos. The entry, reception area restaurant and grounds were filled with screaming children with no effort to control the situation for other guests. We were told our room was not available and had been given to someone else. And additionally, none of the other rooms had air conditioning. We showed the desk clerk our emails from them confirming the room type, it made no difference. The room we were offered was a pathetic, dingy trammel, certainly not the suite we had guaranteed. The air conditioning issue was not merely a temperature issue but a concern about breathing and being able to sleep which is why it was so important to us. We were forced to locate another hotel 15 miles away in Swansea at greater expense. The desk clerk told us "well sometimes this happens when we have wedding parties", implying our room was simply handed off to someone else. We left our mobile number as we were told the manager would call, no one did. For the value and quality of the room, as well as the peace and quiet you can do much better than here! Certainly do not expect this hotel to honor your booking, to follow up on their commitments or even call you back.
Where do I start, this is a lovely hotel let down by poor service, this was supposed to be our best hotel of our week in South Wales, it was supposed to be a free night from my Best western points, we was paying for a breakfast and a dinner, the room was an upgraded one (in the quiet area) it was very nice, so we thought, we went down for dinner, we had a starters which was lovely then we waited for our mains, the people opposite us also waited for there's to, so there's came out first put on the table in front of them, and sat there for a while why they waited for the waiter came out again they disgust what they had been given , then they took the good away which very much like what we ordered, the there's came put the ours came out a little cold? Then we went back to the nice room and rested then went to sleep, we was woken up at 1.00 am ish to an noise which was unbelievable the rain out side was coming off the roof and falling on the window cill and we could just not get any sleep we stud it for half an hr then I got dressed and went to see reception the night porter came down and Hurd the noice for him self but said there was no clean rooms for us to move to, so we had to put up with it until the rain stopped at 3 am ish, so we was completely knackered I did record it and showed it to the reception the next morning but did not seem much bothered, we got our bill we was charged £20.00 for having a free room, I was distracted by that and paid, she said she would look into it later, then I got back to the car a looked at the bill again and realised I was charged twice for dinner and went back to reception again and asked her why she said she would look into it later and assured me it would be credited back, we will wait and see? So overall not great
We have stayed here several times but not recently so it was nice to see some changes. Flat screen TVs in the rooms, free wfi. Loads of parking Very reasonable, good standard of breakfast. Use of pool and leisure facilities. Couldn't fault it. Will stay again.
I worried a little when I first saw the exterior of the Hotel, but it has been updated inside very nicely. Food is excellent, staff very helpful. My Granddaughter especially loved the swimming pool. The leisure / spa facilities are very good. Would definitely stay again.
Stayed one night in this hotel. Lovely inside, clean, nicely furnished and in a quiet location. The hotel was very busy with two wedding parties so there was no porter available to transport luggage to the bedroom but lifts were available. I was booked as sole occupancy but given a beautiful, very spacious double room. with comfortable bed and pillows, leather settee and chair, hair drier and tea/coffee making facilities. Bathroom was clean and spacious with shower over bath and complimentary toiletries. The dining room wasn't overly large and I found it too warm but the food was delicious and beautifully served. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was a bar and Spa facilities but I didn't use either Very nice , would definitely stay again.
2016 was good stay at Heronston and hence i was booked again for August 2017 on office trip. Rooms are big enough with sofa but are showing the age..might need renovation in near future. biggest letdown was from restaurant ....i stayed almost for 2 weeks and except one lucky day...all remaining days breakfast buffet was only available on 7.15 am even though the timing starts from 7.00 am...If you wish to go to office early then you might be disappointed....big thanks to the reception staff for answering all my queries and also storing my case during my weekend visit to London...i collected it back in the following week's stay...overall good stay but will hope for improvements in service..
