10.0 Excellent
Pros: The property was perfectly situated and very well cared for. Alun went above and beyond to accommodate us and couldn’t have been more welcoming, even when we turned up much later than planned. It was raining outside but we were kept smiling throughout thanks to Alun and his wonderfully well-organised and thoughtful hosting/property.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our stay was fantastic in Arfryn House. The bedroom/bathroom are well furnished and clean, and equipped with all necessities. The breakfast is amazing. The hosts are the friendliest people we have ever met, they gave a personal touch to our journey which contributed a lot to our stay in South Wales. All of the must see places (hiking opportunities in Brecon Beacons, Waterfall Country, Mountain Railway, mines such as the Big Pit, caves, Cardiff and several castles) are just a short drive from the House.

Pros: The breakfast was superb! Everything you could want and more, we didn’t need any lunch! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Everything was spotlessly clean. Huge amount of wild birds in the well kept garden, including nut hatches and an albino sparrow!
Cons: The headboard on the bed was loose. Water pipes a bit noisy.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was superb with views over the valley where we could see the Brecon Mountain Railway steam across! The gardens are beautiful. The welcome was warm, friendly and efficient. The breakfasts were delicious and very plentiful! The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We had friends visiting us on a rainy day and we were welcome to use the lounge with them and were offered tea for all of us. We accepted of course! It was the perfect accommodation for us and we were sad to leave. But, hopefully, we will be back in the future.
Cons: Nothing! Even the quirky kettle which seemed to switch itself on again a few minutes after it had boiled and been emptied (was there a ghost in the room?) was not a 'dislike' but rather an amusement! We got into the habit of switching it off at the wall to avoid it burning out! Though it should maybe be replaced for safety!

Cons: Due to the material used to build the cottage inside out (stone) it smelled of dump. There is a water running outside.of the window down from the mountains, sounds like a broken pipe and it's very loud it could be fixed so it gently flows like a stream, it would be much nicer.

9.6 Excellent

Our room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was substantial and every evening the option and convenience of an evening meal, if desired. The staff were always helpful and friendly and car parking was ample. Competitively priced and worth every penny.

7.9 Good
Pros: The staff were absolutely lovely. We had to stay somewhere after a RTA that was not out fault and the staff went out of their way to ensure that we were okay and looked after.
Cons: Style of the hotel is a little dated but for what it is and because it was clean and has excellent staff we’d recommend a stay here.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location was spot on, we were traveling for a funeral and the hotel is just around the corner. the staff were just so friendly breakfast was very nice, I had poached eggs on toast although I could have had a full Welsh. The carvery the night before was delicious! The beef was melt in the mouth and the vegetables were perfectly cooked. I wasn't keen on the mash but that is personal preference but oh my goodness those Yorkshire puddings were fantastic. All in all a good stay and we hope to go back when we visit our friend in the not too distant future. The cost was also very reasonable. Thank you to all the staff at the hotel for making it a very pleasant stay.
Cons: It was pretty much perfect for what we wanted. Pushing it but maybe a fridge in the room even a little one for a pint of milk for some tea.

6.3 Good
Pros: Clean, spacious and welcoming. Good food and plenty of parking.
Cons: Only source of hot water at night time was from the shower for some reason. Sink and bath were running cold. All lights fused in the room on one occasion. Squeaky floorboards weren't a problem during the day, but when lots of people decide to trample down the corridor at about 2 in the morning it's another matter!
6.3 Good
Pros: Finding the place was a little unusual, up on a hill within a relativily new housing estate. However all my doubts were soon washed away, the staff definatley are amazing, pleasant people, nothing to much trouble, really nice and caring people, a real homely hotel. the bedrooms are clean tidy and acceptable. The evening carvery was real home food style, for a tuesday there was well over 60 guests and at the weekend I am informed it can be 300 a day, thats how good the reputation is..with quality and great value.. would stay again and recommend this hotel, a little unusual from your normal hotel chain but on a good side. Thankyou Bessemer. hope to see you again in the future.

Overview Reviews
When you stay at Ty Newydd Country Hotel in Aberdare, you'll be within a 10-minute drive of Aberdare Park and Aberdare Swimming Pool. This hotel has 4 meeting rooms available for events. Free self parking is available onsite.
7.5 Good
Pros: Comfortable homely hotel
Cons: Hotel was very good ... always like a bottle of water in the room
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: The menu . The evening meal was very good
Cons: The hotel and grounds are tired and a little shabby and uncared for. The standard of cleaning needs to improve and some of the staff need more effective management eg smoking in the front porch and leaving cigarette ash over the floor which wasn’t removed all day. Delivery van arrived at 7am, parked under our window and noisily unloaded. Dirty towel from previous occupant left on bedroom floor when we arrived. Drinks are expensive. Overall we think it’s very overpriced and we would not stay again unless it has a property and staff makeover.
5.0 Okay
Pros: It was such a shame to enter this beautiful building and find it so uncared for; it all needs attention. The staff were generally very helpful and personable, but it would appear there is a major management issue, with the owners not being in attendance on site and guiding their staff. It was evident that staff were doing their own thing and not being overseen; the chef certainly was putting out substandard food which should have been noticed. Also, the storage around the hotel and grounds may have made life easy for staff but detracted from the client experience.
Cons: On arrival the property looked really shabby,with what could be gorgeous grounds looking totally unkempt (no gardeners employed and rubbish stacked up throughout public areas). The architecture of the hotel was quite attractive but again tired and worn. The dining room had received a bit of a makeover in a quite modern style but quite incongruous with the hotel style- napkins and boxes were stored in plain view also detracting from the ambiance. However, our main negative was the meal. This came off a (dirty) menu titled "Fine Dining" Unfortunately this was far from fine (Think gammon & chips, steak & chips, lamb shank & chips....) My vegetables were past their best and or cooked to mush and I couldn't gain access to the meat easily as it had a protective shell caused by overcooking. My partner had the sirloin steak which was tough and tasteless. Our complaints were acted upon. By contrast the breakfast was good.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Food good; staff lovely, location beautiful.
Cons: Windows dont open too hot
9.2 Excellent
Pros: It appears to be the only decent hotel for miles around, but is classy and comfortable. The facade is impressive and the gravelled driveway gives it the country home elegance. The room was large and spacious, with a comfortable bed, choice of pillows and plenty of storage space. Two glass windows overlooked the front lawn, presenting great views. There is a restaurant on site serving a wide choice of meals and the breakfast was superb - part buffet, part waitress-served. There was plenty of parking, although the access is through a 1 km one-track road with with a few places for cars to pass.
Cons: The Wifi connection was poor, with frequent cut-outs. Astonishingly, there was no chair in the room (only a large sofa), which means that everything you do at the desk has to be standing up! Being an old building, there is no lift, so you have to lug your bags up and the small attached bathroom could do with modernising. Also, the lack of public transport and remote access means that this hotel is really only suitable for visitors with cars.
5.0 Okay
Cons: outside of buildings shabby, gardens neglected, reception shabby, corridors shabby - get the picture?
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great location, big room and en-suite. Staff were friendly and efficient. Plenty of hot water and a deep bath.
Cons: The building is showing it’s age but this dud not affect our stay.
5.4 Okay
Pros: The Hotel was ideally situated for our visit to Penderyn Distillery and we were able to walk from the Hotel which was our intention. The room was lovely , clean and had all the facilities required .
Cons: However , we booked into the "restaurant" for our evening meal and this is where we were let down! We booked for 8 pm but the lady who greeted us stated there was a large group in and to ensure we did not wait long after seating and could we wait until called. We then sat in the lounge and called at 08:25 am to our table. There were four waitress serving and we placed our order (soup/steak) and asked for the wine menu. No wine menu came , we asked again and the lady who brought it said she would be back , she never returned. We called one of the younger ladies and she took the order. We then waited , she brought the wine , placed it unopened on the table with two glasses and walked away. The food came eventually, soup was lovely however the Steak was awful. My partner had medium and mine medium to well. The former was well done and mine cremated. It was so tough it was like eating my shoe and the other half's was not of good quality so his was too overcooked , fatty and chewy. We did try to speak to someone bu they never stayed around long enough and as the cost went onto the room we just left.
7.5 Good
Pros: The food was lovely. The room was comfortable.
Cons: My room was located directly above the entrance so coupled with the creaking stairs meant it was very noisy. The smoke from outside drifted straight in to my room which meant I had to close the windows and it was very hot. I didn't sleep very well during my stay. Also, as the hair dryer provided was absolutely useless I used my own which seemed to set off an alarm!
7.1 Good
Pros: Staff were friendly, location was ok.
Cons: Bit dated, room ok, TV small, no fan and breakfast cold.

Cons: The guy who served us at night as we went back to the hotel for evening meal actually charged us £9.70 for a carton of orange juice...it didn't actually sink in at 1st and my Husband paid it. This morning I took the orange juice to reception were thankfully the same man was working and when questioned he did not deny this charge and instantly refunded with £10 asking for £1 change...obviously he had 30p change! Spoke to the owner in there other hotel who was furious with this and immediately took further action.

7.5 Good
Pros: The breakfast and variety on offer, the room was clean and comfortable
Cons: nothing
5.4 Okay
Pros: Good location and great sized rooms. Friendly staff.
Cons: The maintenance of the room is of a very poor standard, plug sockets upside down, curtain rails not fitted correctly etc. Breakfast was of average quality, may have been better to go to Wetherspoons up the road. Lots of potential missed here as the rooms can't decide what they want to be, a contemporary bathroom with vintage wardrobes in bedroom and cabin style beds.
7.0 Good
Pros: Excellent location hotel room was spotless, daily room service helpful staff. Furnished with high quality slightly dated furnishings, although I understand hotel is having ongoing renovations.
Cons: Hotel does not offer any suitably adapted accommodation to provide for guests with limited mobility/disability ie. Wet rooms, Walk in shower.,adapted toileting facilities. The hotel does have lifts to each floor.
6.3 Good
Pros: I don't expect a singing smiley-faced kick-line of reception, restaurant and floor staff to greet me when I come to a hotel, but on the other hand something beyond "perfunctory" (almost automated) conversation (when someone was actually AT reception) would be nice. I can only address 'my' room, other rooms may be different BUT... room 212 was very POORLY lit with VERY low wattage bulbs (two in clamshell sconces on a purple wall on either side of the bed that were virtually WORTHLESS for lighting the room). Two other lights were (supposed to be?) high intensity "spotlights" (very '70s) (but looked like Tesco pin up lamps) were mounted on the wall but again, with very low wattage bulbs one of which was directionally unadjustable ... the bulb was loose and a hazard "hanging" 1/2 way out of the socket, ALL bulbs cast a dim orange glow when turned on. Overall room lighting effect was like a B movie from the '70s "Bad Night in a Cheap Bordello". NO table lamps. NO "white light" except the bathroom, which was also VERY low wattage. On the plus side, the bed was amazingly comfortable and the room/bathroom were SPOTLESS (I think... couldn't see too well). Kettle worked perfectly (thank you for that). Room WINDOW faced a side alley and WOULDN'T CLOSE, allowing a LOT OF STREET NOISE from Merthyr Tydfil weekend revelers at 2 local pubs to echo up into the room. The end of the CORRIDOR outside my room was POORLY LIT, the DOOR LOCK could qualify for Antique Roadshow and DIFFICULT to open/lock (most other room doors had "Yale" locks). Uncomfortable, SHODDY CHAIRS (charity shop?? poorly re-upholstered) made necessary computer work impossible. When I went to the reception desk regarding "all of the above" no one was there (2 different occasions)...so I gave up.
Cons: See above...
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Close to town centre. Multi storey car park across the street. Bar and restaurant on site, although close to alternatives should they be required. Breakfast excellent value also.
Cons: Nothing really. Couldn't fault it for the value.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Value for money. Friendly helpful staff. Evening meal was good. Room was large and bright. Comfy bed. I would stay there again.
Cons: Minor grumbles really - No hairdryer in room. Noisy at night from the Wetherspoons pub adjacent to the hotel. Only instant coffee available at breakfast.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Value for money.
Cons: The noise from other guests, obviously a big group of guests all together were on the same floor. Very noisy and drunk. Not much sleep.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Convenient location, although it was not easy to access using sat/nav because of recently introduced one way system in Merthyr Tydfyl. Location near the bus terminal, with fairly diverse shops and restaurants nearby.
Cons: Noisy at night, particularly from nearby pubs. The lack of dedicated hotel parking is a real disadvantage. There is a nearby multistory parkade, but that closes from 8 in the evening to 7 in the morning, and is closed entirely through the weekend.
6.7 Good
Pros: The price and location
Cons: Mould around the windows and the noise at night from outside was awful and kept us awake as we could not close the windows
7.5 Good
Pros: The location of the castle hotel is excellent to access the Merthyr high street and venues such as Theatr Soar. There is ample parking in the multistory directly opposite which is very reasonably priced. We attended for the All Under One Banner march and the hotel is a few steps away from Sgwâr Penderyn, so it was perfect.
Cons: Staff weren't the most welcoming - not too interested in engaging or welcoming guests. There was also only one person manning the reception desk and lounge bar during the rugby which meant we had a long wait to check in and then when we went for a drink. It has the potential to be a very luxurious venue but the decor and facilities are in need of a refresh - gaffer tape on the carpet isn't the best look, neither is the office-like ceiling tiles. Be warned, the car park opposite is closed on a Sunday (& Bank Holidays) which means that you have to ensure you remove your car by the evening before otherwise you will pay £70. for the council to come and release your vehicle, as happened to us!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Laundry was crisp and fresh. Staff very helpful. Spacious and peaceful (except for Saturday nighters in street outside) yet right in centre of town. Everything of good quality and well maintained.
Cons: Restaurant didn't open till 7 pm which was too late for us to attend an event in the town. Bath towels could be bigger.
