Very comfortable hotel

Pros: Comfort, helpful staff, cleanliness
Cons: Towels in the spa area were definitely past their best
We stayed at The Parkway hotel and spa in order to attend my sisters funeral in Cwmbran. The hotel was close to her home. Our rooms were very comfortable, bed linen and towels were very luxurious and every conceivable amenity available to us. Staff were very helpful and ensured my elderly mother was close to us. Breakfast was excellent and we were able to arrange for other family members to join us for this without any hassle at all. All in all I would not hesitate to recommend The Parkway to anyone.

Terrible receptionists and a few other staff.

Pros: It probably had facilities of gym, swimming pool, spa and some space which i liked. The kitchen staff though were better than the other staff
Cons: Receptionists, and staff are first point of contact for a hotel and if they have bad service and can't look after guests
Location: Location is okay, and one can find things to do, shopping centres in newport etc
The visible areas in the room were clean whilst the hidden areas like top of cupboards, behind the bed/chairs had dust and cub webs around it. This is advertised a 4 star hotel probably because of some facilities of swimming pool etc. However, the standards of the room could be better. The hotel receptionist aren't friendly at all. Very rude and uncaring. They don't feed you back about requests made and did look down on me. I feel very bad as a customer here. My first time in south wales, i reside in north west england. One may say the hotel staff are racist.

Good hotel in nice setting

We stayed to visit family in the area my mums birthday is on Valentine’s Day so we had the added extra of the entertainment in the lounge bar which residents were able to enjoy as well. Nothing was too much trouble for the hotel staff. The colonial suite was very good everything was very clean the jacuzzi was lovely and warm and the steam room nice and hot. It was never crowded when we went in either in the evening or the morning - weekdays. I misread some of the other reviews you only get robes and slippers if you’ve booked a spa day they are not available in the hotel rooms for guests.

Nice very cosy hotel

This hotel was so cosy and relaxing. There was two things that l found a bit distressing. 1 : there was no lift. But to be fair l didn’t ask for a disabled room ( but not sure they have one). 2: the disabled toilet is a long way from the restaurant. I am usually in a wheelchair but had to try manage on my crutches. But that aside the staff was lovely the room was lovely and the foyer and lounge was the best l have seen.

Well appointed hotel

Pros: Facilities especailly rhe pool area.
Cons: Staff. Some are very good but others are too process driven and not focused on the customer enough.
Location: Excellent location, quiet with lots of free parking. Great for exploring the Eastern Valley or for business alike.
We have stayed at this hotel three times now so it can't be bad! The facilities are very good, the rooms clean and well furnished, the location great for getting up or down the valley, plenty of parking, quite location and a very spacious feeling. The food is only OK and the staff need training better but that is endemic with hotels in this country everywhere! All in all we will be back again in the future.
