The rooms were good value, and the hotel is right by St David's station, and so convenient. The bar is good, with a great selection of real ale.
The hotel as a while is quite run down. The room was very basic. A lamp or light switch reachable from the bed would be good, as would more conveniently placed plug sockets. The room obviously hadn't been updated for some time.
Bar has excellent range of real ale and staff friendly and helpful. Next door to St Davids station and reasonably priced. OK for group of friends
Although clean and tidy hotel does need a refurb - badly. Breakfast arrangements a bit chaotic largely due to lack of staff. Chap waiting at table also appeared to be covering reception. They ran out of bread!!!!!
the Breakfast table alfull ,the walter is lazy not helpful
Bar had sky TV for football
No food in evening
Mix of clientelle in Bar
Had dirty bed sheets shower didmt work towel rail fell off shower room too small not worth the money
Very convenient for trains, buses and taxis. Free wifi.
Chipped furniture and paintwork, fraying carpets.
Breakfast and location
Heating was not on in the evening.
Very comfortable beds and a great selection of beers in the bar
The web site didn't explain that they no longer served food
Location is good for rail travel. Breakfast ok. Has good selection of cask ales.
The staff were very helpful and went out of there way to help me due to been blind
Expensive car parking, no space of their own. Problems with catering, no evening meals or breakfast available. An old hotel in need of updating and refurbishment.
I have stayed a few times at this hotel and the beds are always clean and comfortable despite the very tired decor. There is plenty of hot water and they also offer single rooms at reasonable rates.
Unfortunately on this visit the kettle in my room was faulty producing smoke from the kettle lead. After waiting at reception to report this I arrived for breakfast at 09.35 (I hadn't been told the times when I checked in and assumed that I would be ok until 10am on a Sunday.) I was told by an apologetic gentleman that I was too late for a cooked breakfast which was very disappointing. He did make me some toast to go with a (by then) very welcome cup of tea.
The Bed, Radiators and Breakfast
breakfast waiter miserable old tired and dirty 10 minute wait for receptionist at 5pm priority given to pub
Excellent location, good atmosphere, good selection of real ales and very handy for transport links. Friendly staff and a good breakfast.
Paying For expensive parking. The hotel is in need of a reprint but is still clean and has great atmosphere.
the door had been punched obviously there was multiple holes in the door, the flooring in the bathroom was tacky and not laid properly especially the carpet out of the door. the radiator never turned off.. in future id probably pay maybe 35 at most for the room 62 is quite outrageous for what was presented when i stayed there.
Very noisy, room hot and stuffy, bed uncomfortable, decor and furniture very shabby. Not good value for money.
Railway theme, convenient location
Expensive car parking, room a bit cold, decor tired but good value for money overall
Closeness to town centre
Paying for parking
I stayed one night to break the train journey from Southampton to Penzance. Room Was basic but had everything I needed. Good value, decent breakfast, one minute from station. I would stay again.
This shambles of an excuse for a hotel has to be high on any list of the world’s worst hotels, but in reality to give it the credence of the name ‘hotel’ is a misnomer. The internal appalling state of repair of The Great Western the gives the impression of a now closed and derelict homeless hostel, with its peeling, flaking paintwork falling from the celling onto the bed, a bathroom door with holes punched in it, the torn bathroom floor covering waiting to trip you up, the creaking floor boards that respond loudly to the gentlest of tip toes, a bed so uncomfortable that sleep was impossible and a room with the sound proofing qualities of a sheet of paper ensures you get to know your neighbours intimately. We live in Devon, but needed to catch an early morning train and with the civilised nearby Ramada Hotel fully booked we chose for convenience this so called hotel. It’s truly abysmal. I have never in my life been caused to write such a negative comment about anywhere in the world I have stayed and given that I am around 65 years of age and travelled for 40 years on business extensively through not only the UK but Europe and the rest of the world, staying in probably 5000+ hotels, it should give some feel for how appalling this building is.
Ideal place to relax and use as a base as it is close to transport and night entertainment
