My room was spacious I saw the pool but didn't use it. Although it seems to be miles from anywhere but a twenty minute walk gets you to st clears where Welsh legends delme Thomas Mike Phillips and Jonathan Davies circa 2014 first played. I would recommend turning left out of the hotel onto path walk through the first single... More

Stopped of here for a meal on way home. The home made lasagne was stodgy and they seemed to have forgotten to put in the mince and as for the curry it had no flavour to it. Needless to say didn't stop for dessert was not going to risk it. Gave it 2 stars for the helpful waitress after all... More

The Forge is a diner / motel by the side of the main dual carriageway between Carmarthen and St. Clears. The rooms are dated with quilts and furnishings that were probably the height of fashion ..... in 1980 !! Having said that, the room was comfy, clean and large enough for a single traveller, likewise the bathroom although the showerhead... More

Having stayed here a few times now, I am always amazed by how they aways manage to make outstanding food regardless to how many they have to cater for. The breakfasts are always perfectly cooked as are the evening meals. All the staff are freindly and happy to help anyway they can. A great stay every time!

We were a bit dubious about The Forge when we booked it, but with a lack of dog friendly accommodation in the area Thought we would take a chance, and we were delighted we did. On arrival we found we had been upgraded to a very large and comfortable family room; there was a good tea / coffee tray with... More

Before I retired I used to spend at least on night a month at The Forge. I must admit it was a stroke of luck finding it, it only happened because the Travel Lodge down the road was full five years ago when i started working the area. Every stay was enjoyable, the rooms are more than adequate and make... More

A lovely little stop over spot on the A40 West of Carmarthen, between St Clear's and Whitland. Family run business with clean, comfortable rooms and adjacent restaurant serving home made food which will suit most tastes. Food is plain and simple, no frills, good friendly service, packed lunches available. A little road noise depending on which room you are in... More

Stopped here for a 6.30pm supper after a coach day trip. We had pre-ordered earlier in the day by phone from a well-balanced "coach party menu". We arrived a few minutes early and as soon as we had purchased drinks from speedy well-trained bar staff and sat down in the restaurant our meals were served, piping hot, very generous portions...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Here at The Forge, we strive to be far more than simply another place to stay - we pride ourselves in our work and enjoy offering guests true Welsh Hospitality where the very quality of accomodation and service make sure that your stay is a memorable one. The Forge has been owned by the Hill Family for almost 50 years developing from a small Blacksmiths shop on the side of the A40 into today's modern complex and adjoining leisure facilities. West Wales is a great place to enjoy during any season and a stay at The Forge is the most comfortable way to enjoy it. We offer both comfort and quality and are ideally situated within easy reach of the beautiful coastlines of both Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. The Forge has 18 rooms situated in modern annexed buildings and all rooms are spacious and furnished to a very high standard. Our Restaurant, over the years, has earned an exceptional reputation amongst both locals and visitors alike. ... more   less
