WE HAVE EATEN THE CARVERY ON SUNDAYS MANY TIMES, AND HAVE ENJOYED OUR MEAL VERY MUCH, GOOD AMBIENCE AND FAIRLY GOOD FOOD. A GOOD CHOICE OF STARTERS AND DESERTS.
THIS WEEK WAS TRULY DREADFUL. POOR FOOD AND DREADFUL NOISE. WHO HAD THE IDEA OF SERVING ONLY IN THE PUB WITH ALL THE SCREENS AND NOISE? WE WILL NOT BE EATING THERE AGAIN, UNTIL YOU LET US KNOW THAT YOU HAVE RETUNED TO THE PREVIOUS VENUE.

Food was ok. menu choices was poor. restaurant was loud. football was on - not everyone enjoys football. so maybe more of a designated area for sport would be better? food was overpriced for the quality.
service was ok.

Visited Sunday evening having booked into the hotel. Restaurant closed and told to use the Grill.
At 7.30 pm there were 3 large screens showing football silently but with loud music playing. No chance of a quite meal talking to friends.
Purchased drinks whilst talking to manager. Bar member was clearly completely untrained to use the till system.
Manager did resolve noise problem by setting a table in the lobby area. Manager was very attentive and we were satisfied with the service provided.
Walking into the lobby to check in at 4.30pm was the worst check-in experience I've ever had. Noise from televisions was so great I considered leaving immediately. A staff member came over and helped with check-in by shouting over the noise. Suggest you shut off the noisy bar from the lobby or loose customers.

Stayed on half board basis with friends.
Breakfast was excellent with great service. Food was good quality served hot and plentiful.
Evening menu was limited we tried all meals and would recommend you stick to this menu as the bar food we tried was disappointing,the curry had four small pieces of meat and was watery.
The fish and chips was excellent and could not have been improved upon.
The bar area is very busy with football on all 6 tvs the staff kindly offered to serve us in the reception area which was fine.

The restaurant was fairly busy with some groups. The staff worked hard and dealt well with some difficult customers who were complaining over something and nothing in a very rude tone and manner. This was unnecessary but the staff were apologetic and tried to resolve this in a calm and professional manner nonetheless. This did not impact our evening and the prepaid meal was outstanding. Overall a lovely evening with delicious food and attentive staff.

We booked under a deal which included two course and a glass of prosecco each. This was really good value and generally the food was good. However, the service was very poor. Initially they refused to give us the prosecco even though I had my booking confirmation on my phone which showed it included prosecco. They were very rude and unhelpful and I ended up having to leave my table to go to the reception for help. The reception staff were great and sorted the problem straight away. Even on my return when we were served the prosecco the staff were still very rude and did not apologise for the mistake.

The food, once again, didn't disappoint, alltho portions with soup/dessert -have got smaller.
But the service was absolutely lacking. There was a very very miserable looking young lady who came to our table once, for drinks order. After that we didn't saw anyone. The dirty plates stayed on the table , untill I called someone over who then took the plate i pointed out not the rest of dirty plates which the table was covered.
Waited AGES to find someone to ask for soup/dessert
there was a birthday party next to us and when they left the girls cleaned up the area, instead of making sure we was ok..As we was still there but the birthday party had left.
I booked it for mothers day but after having that non existing service level, we are going somewhere else.
Sad really. We use to love that place.

stayed at the village hotel swansea for a treat for my husband. Booked in for the satisfaction saturday deal so booked a table in the village grill. The deal is good value for money. The food was very tasty and i would book again in the future. Had the duck tacos to start followed by the chicken skewers.

A good place for a family get-together. Good starters and deserts. Main course good meat, shame about the vegetables. Dried up, overcooked sprouts, and potatoes should be crispy!

Enjoyed a lovely weekend at the Village Hotel - all good - comfort/service and good value.

The one point I would make is the décor - it was drab - colour-less - grey everywhere.

The pub area had black walls - black seats and grey mostly everywhere - certainly not somewhere I would not want to spend any time - quite dismal.

The corridors on the landings were again a dark greenish colour and again very dismal and dark and made it feel like the walls were closing in, especially as the corridors were without windows and there was little natural light.

While I appreciate grey is a very modern and contemporary colour I think there are a lot of areas which could do with an alternative colour choice and just use the grey as an accent colour.

2 medium rare steaks overcooked on outside raw inside made for 2 very chewy tough steaks and at £26 each ruined the meal. Our waitress asked our opinion of the steaks after we'd eaten and said she didn't think they were cooked properly, very observant and she wasn't afraid to comment. I liked that. We said they were edible and left it at that. 1 of our 4 deserts arrived 20 mins later than the other 3. The rest of the food, drinks and service was lovely.

Nice place for Sunday lunch and decent value but the beef on the carvery ruined it. So much garlic infused into the beef you'd think the chef was seeing off a herd of vampires.

It is a very good value for money on Sunday particularly but for the roast it would be nice to have a bigger choice of greens as it is mainly potato.

All just a bit bland and over priced. I’m a member of Village CARDIFF so expected similar environment- sadly disappointed. Doesn’t appear that this hotel has received any investment recently? We were really bothered by flys during our meal to the extent that we moved tables. Flys were still present at breakfast time. Slightly worrying from a hygiene perspective. Breakfast was very basic and fell well below range I’ve experienced at other village hotels.
