About Castle Hotel

Originally a coaching inn dating back to 1695 and the birthplace of the Welsh Rugby Union, the Castle Hotel is a delightful retreat located in the heart of Neath. The Hotel is ideally situated for exploring the stunning Swansea Bay and Gower coastlines and visiting a host of superb attractions including Afan Forest and Brecon Beacons National Park.

Owned and run by a local family, the Castle is conveniently located just off the M4, 2 minutes’ walk from Neath mainline train station and 40 minutes from Cardiff.

We are very proud of the fact that the Welsh Rugby Union was founded here in March 1881 and we take every opportunity to celebrate our rugby heritage with special events and accommodation offers.

Being surrounded by premium golf courses, the hotel is particularly popular with golfers and we are able to offer tailor made packages at discounted rates.

The Castle is also a convenient base for Mountain Bikers as we are only a stone’s throw from Afan Forest Park, with its 5 world class trails, and we offer secure bike storage.

Whether for business or pleasure, you will be assured of a very warm Welsh welcome.
