Never been before but went for a friends birthday and the food was amazing - highly recommended! You can even get a takeaway if you take your own plate. Now that we have discovered this little gem in Merthyr we will definitely be revisiting soon with family

We are 4 couples, 3 of whom were planning to pitch our tents and 1 who booked into the Bessemer (as they are too old to camp!). 2 days before our planned weekend meet up, 1 couple checked the weather forecast for the area - we were so glad they did! The weather forecast was 50mph gales and torrential rain....

I've stayed twice on business trips. Great service, great choice of dinner including carvery. Rooms spacious and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Number one on my list for a stop over! Even had a room with a spa bath this time.

The rooms were nice and the breakfast was included in the price. The breakfast had a good variety. The staff was helpful and suggested a nearby park for the children to play at when we had some free time.

Everything was fine with this hotel but can I suggest you give breakfast a miss, really not worth bothering. Lovely deck outside where we enjoyed the evening sunshine. Location easy to find and near the lovely Brecon Beacons.

Simply the best. The best carverry in Wales bar none It's a family favourite of ours mainly because of the quality of the food. The mash is to die for and its real potatoes not powder. So if like us you don't expect powder mash in your carverry you will enjoy it here
