... was really close to the train station though, so I guess either way, one taxi ride would have been a bit longer anyway. Every healthcare professional I talk to mentions the high incidence of alcohol abuse here. There are pubs on every corner, and it seems to be quite a social event. I hate to make another sit com reference, but like one of the How I met your mother episodes, I ...
... roast beef and yorkshire pudding with no subtlety whatsoever. Another good night. Micheal's a professional photographer and he generously gave us a large print of one his photos of the local area. Hopefully it will survive the trip back. Drove up to Holyhead on 5th June to get the ferry to Dublin. Left the hire car at Holyhead.
Travel blogs are a pain after a while.
Left London at 7.30am. Travelled to Stonehenge and saw a big pile of rocks with arcitectural beliefs. Then went on to Bath and visited the Roman Baths and had lunch at a pastries shop. The whole town of Bath is made of bath rock. Amazing. From there on we went to Cardiff and had dinner at an old pub. Very ...
... past some beautiful houses and attached houses all in a row. It was obviously the more wealthy side of the town of Cardiff. The sun came out and we saw some blue sky for a short time. Blythe time we crossed the bridge again it was bucketing down rain. A late lunch and we were back on the bus - cattle class this time, our beautiful bus from this morning was nowhere to be seen. The drivers of these buses are just amazing as in where they can take these huge buses. ...
... So inside the stone walls were old war bunkers so it was interesting learning the history of that. We also went inside some of the rooms of the castle and we were able to go up the watch tower which was in the centre of the grounds. The tower was surrounded by a mote and back in the day it was heavily guarded. The top platform provided amazing views of Cardiff city.
After the Castle we headed to a Vodka bar called Revolution, it was cocktail hour ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Nant Ddu Lodge Hotel Cwmtaf
i visisted this hotel for a spa day, so did not get to see any of the rooms, however the staff were very friendly the food was very very nice, the hotel is very clean and the surroundings are really peaceful, But the best thing about the lodge were the treatments and the girls that do the treatments they were very friendly, welcoming and made me feel very relaxed. i would recommend nant ddu for a relaxing day out
After staying many times at the Nant Ddu, I feel I must write a review after reading the review from the person from Cardiff. We have never had anything except excellent service and courtesy from the staff,also the food has always been second to none.
I do not know which room this person stayed in, but our rooms have always been to the highest standard for the price you pay.
I regularly stay in hotels all over the UK, Europe and the US and I look forward to when I have the opportunity to stay at the Nant Ddu. I have always found the staff most welcoming and the beds are the most comfortable of any hotel I know (I believe most are Hypnos if you wish to look them up). Soft white cotton sheets just enhance the comfort.
I stayed at the Nant Ddu Lodge Hotel in October 2005. I really enjoyed it. It exceeded my expectations.
set in beautiful location but that is the only plus. No non smoking rooms offered and this was not advised at the time of booking. Rooms were tired in need of redecorationand updating. Rooms were not equipped with all the promised facilities i.e spa robes etc. Spa facilities were good and well maintained. Hotel managment were rude and very unwelcoming of any constructive comments particularly in reference to their decision not to offer non smoking rooms for guests, somewhat backward and socially irresponsible in this day and age.

Great hotel, great staff
Stayed one night in May 2004. The room was large, very well appointed, and very quiet. The facilities are great. All the staff, including reception, restaurant and spa, were extremely friendly and helpful.
Located in the heart of the Brecon Beacons this hotel is ideally situated. The scenery is breathtaking and the views stunning. The Hotel has a choice of rooms in three price ranges. We were in the 'good' rooms at Â£80 per night. The room was in an outside annex and not within the main building. It was tired, small and dusty with poor quality beds. The TV was tiny and faulty in sound although there is a video facility and a free video library. The shower unit was faulty and fluctuated between pleasant and scalding. The main problem was with the flimsy construction of the annex which led to considerable noise from the room above. Unfortunately our room was below the upstairs lavatory and we were entertained by lavatorial sounds and very loud flushings - to say nothing of the sewage pipe running down our room cavity wall. The noise disturbed us at night. I viewed the more expensive rooms in the main building and they are of a much higher standard. The new pool complex and Spa were excellent, as was my wife's report on the beauty treatments. The lunch and dinner menu's are identical. We were not able to have a simple sandwich at lunch. The inclusive buffet breakfast was well presented and the cooked version at an additional Â£5 was good value. Dinner in either the bar or bistro was of very good quality and the staff were attentive and friendly. The slow-roasted Welsh lamb was delicious and is warmly recommended, although I would give the ribeye steak a miss. Would I revisit? Yes - but only in the better or best rooms.
