A quiet and tranquil B&B with great views of the river bank, ideal for a peaceful break with great service. Breakfast was the best with great choice and cooked to my desire. Stayed in the Otters room which was very pleasant with a large shower room on the ground floor which was ideal for me. The owner was always available... More

we have stayed here before and as always Paul & Steve were very accommodating and couldn't do enough for us. We couldn't fault anything although the garden wasn't looking its best this time of year. Room and breakfast first class but would have preferred a bath which was not available for the room booked (Swan) but otherwise a lovely room.... More

My husband and I recently stayed in Ty Castell on 30 November. Our room was spotlessly clean and had really personal touches that made our stay really lovely. Paul and Steve were perfect hosts and breakfast was cooked to perfection by Steve. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you both so much.

Thank you for your review of your stay with us and your kind words. All rooms have a great views but the Kingfisher room has the best overlooking the river. The Otters and Swan room looks over the Towy Valley with great mountainous views. We look forward to your return next year? More

This B & B has a wonderful garden. But the location is far from at is it being described. It is not walking distance to any restaurant or pub, as described in the hotel description. Rooms basic furnished and overlooks a washing umbrella. Frukusten mediocre, but the owner helpful. Not worth its price of £ 76.00

Visited Ty Castell for the 4th or 5th time in the past few years and it is still the best B&B we've stayed in. The hosts are as welcoming as ever and whilst they no longer do evening meals they recommended restaurants in Carmarthen which lived up to their advice.

Just had a fantastic couple of nights at this great B&B! Hosts Steve and Paul are the best ever. Made to feel very welcome. Food, service and accommodation fab. Found time to sit in the lovely garden and spotted a kingfisher by the river. Would love to visit again in the future.
