Best Western Aberavon Beach Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We like Best Wester Hotels but this one is the best we have ever stayed in because the staff are so friendly they make our stay one to remember. Breakfast is very good & is always served with a smile. For lunch/evening meal you can choose to have a bar meal or eat in the dinning room & again the staff are only too happy to help. The Aberavon is a dog friendly Hotel & is located across from a lovely beach so if you are a dog lover like us, its idea for walking with your dog. We have stayed at Aberavon Beach Hotel twice now & have enjoyed it so much we will continue to stay there when ever we visit that part of Wales.

The car park having been tarmaced recently was a great improvement and I looked forward to seeing what else had been done. The receptionist was efficient and jolly and I was processed without delay. However my room was above the air conditioning units and was already very noisy even with my window closed. I requested a different room which would be quieter. After 10 minutes with the Manager the receptionist offered my an alternative room but couldnt let me have both keys to move my luggage instead I had to go fetch it and return to reception and then put it into the new room. On the third floor. So the room was good and everywhere looked like attempts had been made to spruce the old place up. However the bad bits The shower managed to get to a full force dribble after 10 minutes and you had to literally stand under it to get wet. not good Breakfast was the biggest let down Day 1 I didnt get what tea as ordered instead coffee and specified items from the full english ended up being a full english Day 2 nobody approached me for 10 minutes and 10 minutes later my tea arrived and 30 minutes after that I left the room still not having been served scrambled egg and a hash brown On exiting the hotel I told the receptionist who didnt ask for specific details but took the cost of a breakfast off my bill So some improvements but not good staff wise

We spent a lovely few days here. The outside looks dated but don't let this put you off, the inside is lovely. The room was very clean, beautifully decorated and the bed was extremely comfortable with good quality bedding. Breakfast was wonderful with a good choice of continental or cooked options. It was a bonus having a pool onsite. We will definitely stay again.

We stayed here a few days ago and had an enjoyable stay. We've been here a few times over the years and always receive a warm and friendly welcome. Staff are helpful. The bedroom had been redecorated a few months ago and was fresh and clean and we had an excellent view of the sea front. The bar meals were pretty good and service was fast. The only significant gripe that we had was that we couldn't pick up a WiFi signal in the bedroom which was inconvenient, but we could get a good signal in the bar, restaurant and reception ateas. The hotel has a good location on the sea front with good views of Swansea Bay to the west, and the Steel Works to the east. There are three restaurants within 300 yards of the hotel if you decide to eat out.

Hotel is in a great location, being near the seafront. The staff are very helpful and friendly. I stayed at the Hotel from Monday - Wednesday at the beginning of March. Had a Sea-View room, very spacious and clean. The Hotel can cater for people who have a diet restriction - eg: Coeliac which is Gluten Free and my meals were excellent, staff always checking that my meals were Gluten Free.

No complaints with the food, all had a lovely lunch. Just the service is so bland and poor, make you feel like you shouldn't be there or they don't want you there, had a 'huff' when we asked if anyone was coming to the bar and then looked up and down when asking to pay. The blonde lady who we paid with, I want to say her name was 'Mair'??? walked off with the credit card and did a contactless payment without showing the amount or even asking if she could do it, just a simple 'beep'. They need to be taught what they can and can't be doing

Lovely staff, excellent room and service generally Breakfast was superb. Brilliant location, will definitely be back , especially now I know that dogs are welcome too. Public bar is a very pleasant way to while away some time and there's even a swimming pool

I came here with my mother for their Welsh Afternoon Tea which I had booked two weeks in advance. This consisted of a choice of sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, tea cakes and bara brith. When our tea was brought out, we were told there was no bara brith so they had substituted it with Danish pastries. Neither my mother or myself like them but didn't have the heart to tell the guy as he seemed so pleased with himself. I thoroughly enjoyed my two scones but when my mother went to get hers, there was only one left? Three scones between two people is very odd? We also had beef sandwiches instead of ham or cheese which I had asked for. We did enjoy the food but won't come here again as we didn't get what was ordered.

Hotel is in a good location on the sea-front at Aberavon. Check in was quick and efficient. There was a homely feel in the downstairs bar area, helped greatly by very friendly and engaging staff. We stayed in a family room which was large with a decent television and comfortable beds.The buffet breakfast was hot and the staff were helpful. The swimming pool was clean and a good size with a jacuzzi and sauna. That's the good points but there are negatives... The outside of the hotel badly needs updating. The interior of the hotel feels dated and worn around the edges. The bedroom carpets were stained, power points not working and fixtures worn out. The shower leaked out of the bath causing a flood. There was a mysterious clanking around 6am each morning which woke everyone up (presumably from the heating system. Some of the food was of a poor quality (either re-heated or frozen) and the juices were either watered down or poor quality. The weekend we stayed there appeared to be a brass band being hosted by the hotel, who used a function room to practice. The noise was horrific, and continued until 7.30pm on Saturday evening (and again on Sunday morning). We could not hear ourselves think - a hotel with guests is no place for a large brass band to practice especially with young children trying to sleep. Absolutely disgraceful that the hotel allowed this with paying guests staying at the hotel. The situation wasn't helped by the thumping music from the pub next door at midnight.

Very welcoming and provided a very good value for money. Had two rooms over looking the beach. It was also a great view of the Harbour Cranes which one of my family used to drive. Car parking was easy and the hotel was located in an ideal location.
