Friendly old fashioned pub

Posted 12-Nov-2018 on Hotels
Really friendly and helpful. The building is old, so we were up 2 flights of stairs and the bathroom was built into a corner with a noisy macerator, but we had all comforts we needed, room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was complimentary and great, branded cereals, great choice, fruit and toast. Staff couldn't have been nicer.

Welcoming, clean and comfortable

This is a lovely stop over hotel, yes it is a bit tired, but it more than makes up for it in welcome and beautifully clean and comfortable beds.

good value and friendly Victorian pub in centre

Posted 17-Sep-2018
Pros: Value for money in pub accommodation.
Cons: The shower could be more powerful and the option of paying extra for hot items with your breakfast would have made the stay perfect...
Location: Walkable to shops and train station to Cardiff. Short bus ride to Barry Island. Numerous walks closeby.
Cool comfy spacious room . Welcoming reception with bar . Simple breakfast included .

It's about right for the price

Posted 06-Aug-2018
Pros: The price and the staff
Cons: The noise outside and the smell of cigarettes in the room.
Location: Very close to Barry town and not far from the beach. The train to Cardiff is only 30 mins.
This hotel was very cheap - the cheapest option around but you get what you pay for. The room was literally in the pub garden - an extension of the pub. So there was music and voices up until around 11pm. No blackout curtains, just blinds that let the street light in. There was a stale smell of cigarettes and an overpowering smell of air freshener. They are pretty much all the negatives. The room was clean and comfortable and I slept very well. The staff were lovely and it's very close to Barry town. I probably wouldn't stay there again - but if you want somewhere cheap, and don't mind pub noise then this place will do fine. I didn't take up the breakfast option but it sounded nice.

Not worth the money, dirty and run down

Posted 24-Jul-2018
Terrible experience. We stayed in the family room. Youths drinking in the attached pub doing drugs outside our door. Room filthy and run down. Holes in towels, no lamps just full lighting, dusty, no curtains on main huge double glass doors, old thin cream office style blinds in windows, tares in carpet, hair bobble holding shower head in place, generally a dump and not worth the price charged of £80 for 1 night. Pub is very old and run down. Breakfast was cereal or toast which was fine, can’t go wrong with that, but we did expect a clean room to eat in. Hands stuck to the tables, a dirty smeared mirror and cutlery was a case of find it yourself in a cabinets drawers. It wasn’t even in a cutlery tray, just dumped in a pine drawer.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Always have a nice stay. Only thing i would say is need more pillows in the room.

A total nightmare!!

Posted 18-Jun-2018 on Hotels
It was a total nightmare. Don't go there. There was loud music from the bar downstairs and traffic noise outside. Also rowdy people. There was no Wi-Fi in room. It is a drab, run-down, depressing place. Thank goodness I was only there for one night
