Nice place, will return
We stayed at Maltsters recently and enjoyed a very pleasant stay. The room was great. They were very organised from a COVID perspective. Easy checkin and out. We also ate in the restaurant which wears great. Easy parking behind the hotel. Enjoyed the Barry Island IPA on tap in the bar!

A good honest place to stay, with friendly service
I needed somewhere to stay for a business trip and this seemed to fit the bill. Upon arrival I was shown to a clean. Well furnished room with good facilities. The TV was good, the bed big and comfortable and the bathroom well appointed. I decided to eat in the restaurant which was good value, and the slow roast pork belly was delicious. Service was good and very friendly. Breakfast in the morning was from 8am (a little late for some but fine for me on this occasion.) The breakfast did not live up to the meal of the night before. Everything was included (sausage, bacon, egg mushrooms black pudding etc.) and was cooked fresh. But for some reason it was just a little bland despite being good local ingredients. Not unpleasant but just forgettable. Other than that everything else was great. I'd definitely go back if I needed, and would say it represents good value for money.
