Castle Hotel
The rooms are clean but look tired. The water takes forever to warm up.

4/10 Fair

A hot night in Merthyr with windows wide open was not ideal. The windows were too high to close. Constant noise- screaming and shouting until 3am in the morning. This was our first and last visit and will not be going back. Staff were friendly and even though we decided to leave at 5.30 am, a member of staff was available to unlock the main door to let us out. Hotel is a bit dated and room wall extremely tatty but this was reflected by the cost - £59!

Family stay
Stayed for a night with the family. The night receptionist, a friendly person, but not fully informed. We were told we could order breakfast in the morning. At 730, a new face at the reception, she was not friendly, at the same time said breakfast should have had been ordered at night. Rooms are old, windows are old single glazed, need modernisation.

In desperate need of refurb
Old draughty windows, heating in the room not working, and only Luke warm water in the bathroom, made for a very uncomfortable stay.

Very cold, heating didn’t work. Staff leant me a heater but it as soon as I switched it heated for 5 minutes and stopped working. After a long day at work felt too tired to take issue further but I won’t be staying there again
