Me and 2 of my friends recently stayed at the locks for a weekend, and i must say the house is absolutely amazing. The hallway and stairs when you first open the front door just takes your breath away, the bar and pool table was just to good, the pool table was in good condition aswell. The cinema room just makes it that bit better. And you will never be waiting round for the toilet as there is a toilet in i think every room in the house. will dmost certainly be staying here again. The owners are Really easy to get along with and we had one slight problem, we rang the owners and they fixed it within an hour or so, so really could customer care.
The photos on the page really dont do the place justice when you first arrive you are given a guided tour by the owners then left to your own devices and wondering around can easily get lost.
Everywhere is decorated beautifully and tastefully the cinema room and the bar with arcade and pool table just makes the place.
Every amenity is catered for and more than is needed like 3 kettles 2 microwaves etc so your never waiting if you fancy a cup of tea.
Totally made our weekend the house did perfect place to base your self from and just a uber ride from cardiff.
We stayed here for a family gathering and had a great weekend! the pictures don't do it justice, it is spacious and has everything you need inside the house. the owners are friendly and communication when booking is fantastic! all in all we will be looking at re booking when we are all free again!
This house was far more superior than I ever thought it would be! We had such fun staying in this house, playing with the games machine, the pool table and cinema room! The kitchen is huge, the bar is perfect .... I literally could not fault the place! We would go back in a heartbeat! The communication with owners was fantastic through out, they were extremely helpful and attentive. I have already recommended this place to friend and they have since booked their stay too, I highly recommend this amazing property for visiting South Wales :-)
The Locks is an amazing, spacious place, with room for everyone! Where so many places fall down on "sleeps 10" but only have lounge space or dining chairs for half a dozen, The Locks scores every time - from the vast dining table in the kitchen, to two huge lounge areas, each one big enough for everybody. The four main bedrooms were large and comfortable too. We loved the pool table and bar area, while those looking for quieter corners had space to set up jigsaw puzzles upstairs and down without them getting in the way of anyone else.
If I had to quibble about anything, it'd be two things: there's a bit of TLC needed in places for the property to really present itself well (silly stuff like loose wall fittings, light fittings, socket plates, etc.), and the kitchen needs a bit of a sort out... there's LOADS of cupboards, each with loads of stuff in, but apart from crockery there aren't many 'sets' - especially of wine glasses, flutes, tumblers, or mugs, so you rather have to cobble together the best you can find!
