I can't even bring myself to leave such a bad review as the people who run this hotel are so nice, welcoming and very accommodating. In saying that, we won't be back! The hotel is in such a poor state and we were so disappointed that it was laughable but, we still stayed the 3 nights as all we needed...

I have stayed at Hendrewen on several occasions this year due to work, and I have always been made welcome. If I am early, someone will always open up (as yet I have not had to use the side entrance due to everyone at Hendrewen going out of their way to be helpful). The chef (Jim), is always keen to...

The pub is very dated not just old but very poor condition. As soon as I walked in I smelt the overpowering damp smell. Very dusty rooms with rotting windows, and old bed sheets. The tv is very tiny hardly visible from bed or chair. The plugs taped up. I couldn't stop coughing and sneezing due to dust and damp....

The manager, Julie, could not have done more for us during our short stay. She even opened the restaurant for us although they are not usually open on Mondays. The chap who made our breakfast was friendly and served an amazing fry- up. We had the family room which was comfy and we had a great night's sleep. Fab little...

The Hendrewen Hotel is a B&B and occasional pub-restaurant (it's only open as a restaurant four days a week and only serves food Wednesday to Friday). However they accept B&B bookings for any day of the week. It's quite old fashioned; the breakfast is substantial but but let down a little by instant coffee and only white bread for toast....

The building itself is dated and the outside could do with a fresh paint to make it more inviting. The room was very clean the wifi signal worked well (we stayed in room 2). the room is at the front overlooking the road, however, it was very quiet and there was no road noise. was a wonderful nights sleep. Julie...

Stayed here on 28th May after see the Manics in Swansea (hence the title!). Very friendly place, the landlady and staff were brilliant and the rooms comfortable. Lovely breakfast in the morning.

Hello again Denise and thank you for your review. We were so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you made it up to the waterfall! Hope my directions were ok as I heard that a couple of you lost your way a bit... Kind regards, Julie

The hotel is very close to the start of The Weatherman's Walk, in fact the waterfall can be seen at a distance from some of the bedrooms! A very beautiful area for walking. Staff are very helpfull, and the hotel is clean, the bed comfortable, etc... There were even blankets for people who do not like duvets. I enjoyed my...
