    Does anyone have any recommendations for five ageing blokes who can afford a half decent B & B/ Hotel? Obviously they would need to cope with the mess though!

    Thanks. 8)

    It’s not exactly charismatic or luxurious but I always stay in the Travelodge at Merthyr as it’s about 2 mins drive away! Then breakfast at McD’s or full welsh at BPW cafe. Plus if you book in advance (which you have to anyway to get at uplift at BPW) it’s pretty cheap.

    last time we went we took a massive tent and booked in at Grawen Caravan and Camping park.
    £8 per head and we got electrical hook up too. it was a blast. the owner was a very nice old lady and she even let us store the bikes overnight in a secure cage in her barn.
    we’re going back there at the end of next month and this time will be staying in the camping barn she has (£10 per head).
    she takes in quite a lot of BPW users and the staff at BPW know her very well and highly recommend her too!
    also i have heard that the local Premier Inn allows you to store your bike in your room.

    Only if they’re clean AND you ask politely. Don’t just assume and wheel them in.

    Whilst I’ve never done it with a truly filthy bike I’ve never asked and always just walked in with my bike at Travelodges/Premier Inns/Holiday Inn Expresses up and down the land! Asking probably wouldn’t go amiss, but I’d just sneak it in anyway, easier to ask forgiveness and all that…

    Go to any hotel near a National race and there will be a lot of bikes in rooms!

    Last time I went to BPW I stayed HERE at Llechwen Hall Hotel. The moules mariniere for starter were fantastic.

    I stayed here – about 2 miles south of BPW, super friendly, store room for bikes that you can wash down. bar area with open fire, TV, really good food and the best Guiness I’ve had out of Ireland!

    If you don’t mind a 45 minute drive afterwards then we (usually a small group of ageing blokes) always stay at Afan Lodge, plus you then have the options of all the trails at Glyncorrwg from the door.

    cheap and local – The Butchers Arms Pontsticill, bunk accomodation above the pub, 15mins from BPW. Breakfast/Dinner/Beer were great. The other pub in the village (Red Cow) is one of the friendliest Ive found in Wales

    Afan Lodge – recommended, bit of a drive tho.

    +1/for the Butchers Arms. Couldn’t be more helpful and their real ales were pretty good too.
