I visited La Mancha with my mum and gran for my grans birthday. I selected this restaurant as I have recently purchased a taste card and wanted to benefit from its use. Unfortunately, a great deal of menu choices are excluded from the tastecard offer, so I did not end up using it or saving anything. Nonetheless, the meals were...

Really disappointed with the food our meal was served first but it was cold. The fish was covered with a tomato sauce that was bland thick and gloopy , the crushed potatoes again had a really peculiar taste so disappointed. The only good thing was the service , wouldn't go back .

What a gorgeous little find. Firstly be aware parking is limited to 4 cars, there is plenty of off road parking and a large car park at the train station just a few mins walk away. This was no issue to us having stayed at several hotels with no parking facilities. The staff are a young friendly bunch who made...

La Mancha restaurant was excellent, with friendly staff and lovely food, very busy on both the evenings we were there. The staff couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome, and the room and decor was just right, clean...

Comfortable room, excellent restaurant (La Mancha) and great breakfast. We stayed just one night to meet family for a birthday meal in the restaurant. The room is comfortable and has everything you need for a short stay. Just one thing to note if travelling by car - there is a small hotel car park outside but also secure parking for...

We stayed here for nine nights using it as a base for travels around the town and district so my wife could relive childhood memories of growing up in Neath before her family moved to Australia. Keith and Tracy were wonderful hosts and the meals at the hotel's "La Mancha" Restaurant were first class. The rooms were clean and serviced...

Visited on business in November. Comfortable and clean hotel - warm welcome from reception staff and my room was large with modern fittings and a comfortable bed. A freshly cooked breakfast was cooked to order which is nice when you're used to endless hotel buffets. I also had dinner in the hotel, very nice if not a little pricey.

Excellent hotel where we have stayed several times. Staff are great, rooms very well presented and the food is superb. The hotel is very near the railway station so we left the car at the hotel and went for a day out on the train to south west Wales.
