Surprised how highly rates this hotel is. But then when your bombarded at breakfast by staff with rating forms i need say no more? I really object to this! Hotel was ok. I had problems for two days with door locks and keycard which apparently maint had fixed. Room carpet was not cleaned well and needed a good vac. Heating good, mattress a bit soft abd lacking real support. Pillows very hard. Staff nice but detail is in the doing not the front put on! I think this is realistic appraisal of my stay.

We have used this Holiday Inn a couple of times before and always very happy with it.Very nice staff and a lovely clean room ,plenty of parking spaces and a small but nice enough breakfast. Will be back.

Stayed here just for the night, was clean comfortable and great value for money. I found the staff friendly and polite. It’s not the Ritz, but at under £50 for the night with a reasonable breakfast included in the price you cannot complain. Bang for your buck, this place is a winner. Also the pub next door the dragon is far better than reviews sugest

Overall was a satisfactory stay for one night. Room was very spacious clean. Bar and front desk office provided good service. Breakfast service was ok. But it let down for not having breakfast service to room.

Working around the corner so ideal location,room on 1 st floor very nice and road facing but very little noise noted ,ate in the dragon fly a short walk ,free breakfast was very good and nicely displayed , would recommend to the working traveller

We stayed for two nights over a weekend. The hotel was conveniently located. The rooms were clean and were a decent size. They have a bed, sofa, desk, large tv with freeview (although some channels weren't tuned in or had a bad reception), and a small hanging space. The room had all of the amenities that we needed including shower gel, a kettle and a hair dryer. The only thing missing was a socket near the bedside table for charging phones. There was only one socket in the room, which was above the desk. The shower was a good size and was clean. Breakfast was fresh and varied, and there was a mix of hot food and cereal to choose from. The reception staff were very efficient and helped us to book a taxi. The room was very quiet, we didn't hear any other guests at night, or any traffic noise from the main road. There is a lift to access the rooms on upper floors. Check out is 12noon.

We have used this Hotel on various occasions the rooms are always clean and well laid out ,the extra of inclusive breakfast makes this a good place to explore from.loads of parking easy to find from the nearby M4.Dragon fly resteraunt next door if you need additional meals nearby. The staff are always helpful.

Me and my partner have just stayed two nights here.hotel is a long way from town.its lovely and clean.reception staff are lovely.our room was lovely,big and spotlessly clean.wifi was brill.first morning at breakfast we were given a table to sit at and then helped ourselves to food and drink.was not impressed with the cooked was cold and wasn’t the best.the second morning we went for breakfast(Sunday).it was different staff and they couldn’t of cared less about anyone.there was some empty tables but they were full of dirty pots so sat in reception area.i avoided the cooked breakfast and had tea and toast.its such a shame because hotel is lovely.had a drink in the bar.pint of Guinness and vodka and coke was £11.10.thats nearly double what we pay at the pub.

Booked this hotel on Saturday afternoon for the Sunday night. The price was excellent and I didn’t realise when booking but it also included a buffet breakfast. The room was very clean and comfortable, the staff have all been very friendly. The breakfast albeit buffet was excellent. Good quality food and tasty too. Check in from 2:00 pm and check out on a Monday is not till 12:00 pm so no pressure and no rushing. Plenty of parking and ideally located, literally 5 mins from the M4. Will definitely be using this hotel again.

Excellent value for money - very comfortable large rooms including tea and coffee facilities, very good buffet breakfast included, helpful staff, free wifi. The M4 motorway to Cardiff is easily accessible.
