I want to say a big thank you from all my family to the staff at the Boars Head for making my mother's 90th birthday meal such a fantastic occasion. We had the front room for 21 of us, which Chris sorted and decorated beautifully, with all our decorations and photos. (Sorry for all the balloons Chris). We had a lovely 3 course meal, Carvery was beautiful, everyone said it was the best beef they had in a long time. All the staff, Nerys, Chris, Gary the Chef were fantastic, and my mother had a wonderful time. We booked 7 rooms for the family to stay as we had come from all over the country, and everyone felt welcomed and enjoyed the stay. Bathrooms have all been refurbished and are lovely. The master bedroom with the 4 poster bed was a particular hit. All in all can't fault it. Thanks again.

Room tip: Loved the master bedroom

Just want to say a MASSIVE thank you to all the amazing staff at the Boars Head Hotel for looking after us so well at our son's christening today! We booked the (newly refurbished) upstairs function room for our 65 guests (including 20 kids!!) and nothing was too much trouble for them! (& I was a pain at times too!!) The carvery & desserts were delicious! Every plate was literally licked clean!! (also utterly lush homemade chips for the kids!!) Can't recommend you guys enough...thank you, diolch! You've definitely got some new customers coming your way after today! Emma, Eurig & Hennessy xx

Stayed here over the course of a funeral for which the hotel organized the post funeral reception. The welcome and service was exemplary throughout our time there and the food and hospitality excellent. Our family were looked after very well and we are now all working hard to shed some weight!

One minor criticism is that the mattress in our bed room (27) was pretty uncomfortable but the room was clean, well appointed and the bathroom spacious and functioning. We would definitely stay here again.

Room tip: The stairs are old and steep so if you have bad knees like me ask for a 1st or ground floor room.

We stayed for one night, never again. We were asked to go down for dinner at 7.00pm because the was a big party in at 6.00pm. On arrival in the bar we were told abruptly, 'Chef is not taking any more orders until 7.30pm, you can sit over there. My husband went to the bar for drinks and asked for a globe for my G&T, he was refused, being told that they only had a few and they might walk. He was also asked to show our room key, as they can't be too careful! The food was adequate, but slopped on the plate like a mixed up mess. We were rung up in our room at 10.30pm to ask if we had put a meal on our room?!!!
The room was adequate, the secondary glazing was impossible to open and the gap between the window and glazing was filthy. Towels were fit for a midget.
Reception has a bell for service, somebody shouts from the bar 'In here'

Car parking a nightmare, door locked/unlocked randomly.

This hotel needs some management and the female staff need to acquire manners.

Room tip: Lots of street noise on the front
