We stayed 1 night at the Lampeter over the weekend when visiting our eldest son at Uni. We'd booked a family room as the youngest was supposed to come with us but changed his mind at the last minute. The staff on arrival weren't particularly friendly or rude - just a bit indifferent and factual. However they were more than... More

We have stayed at this hotel previously where our stay was lovely. Unfortunately when we stayed this time, the bed was very uncomfortable to sleep on. I asked for the mattress to be changed (this would have resolved the problem) but just putting a quilt on the mattress was not acceptable. To make matters worse, unfortunately, the attitude of the...

Stayed for 2 nights everything was great nice room very clean, staff were very friendly, nice freshly cooked breakfast great location, only complaint was the mattress on our bed was far too soft so not very comfy not sure if this was the same in all the rooms but would mention it if staying again we were in room 003.

Having read some of the previous reviews, we still went ahead with the booking, mainly because of the central location and free car parking. We had stayed in a Travelodge on our last trip to visit our son at Uni. The room was clean, if a little dated, which could be said for the whole hotel (anyone scared of lifts,... More

Not welcoming as reception unmanned most of the time. Chose the hotel as it was close to shops and buses. Disappointed that the short cut was locked in the day which made it difficult for wheelchair. No heating in the day. Stayed 8 days with no change of linen. Breakfast staff welcoming with excellent service.

We enjoyed our stay. Friendly,helpful staff. Nice food in the bistro and an extensive breakfast menu. Rooms were clean and tidy. Overall excellent value for money. It would have been nice to eat out on the terrace, overlooking the park but it was just a little top cold.
