Very basic room but clean and OK for just one night. No noise from the bar downstairs or from outside. Breakfast was only average - the bacon was very thick and more like gammon. Friendly staff. Managed to park on site.

Great value for money. Rooms are clean and tidy. Beds are comfortable and soft. Bathrooms are clean. Welcome was friendly and welcoming we were shown to our room. The breakfast was good a little greasy but nice.

My ancestors came from Carmarthen, Wales. I wanted to see what it looked like. It's a small town but not a "tiny" town. We walked to the hotel from the train. It wasn't very far - about 5 blocks. When we came in the hotel, I thought that place wasn't right because it was a pub room. I said to... More

Really enjoyed our stay here last night, the welcome was fantastic. The rooms were clean and tidy with an amazing shower. Breakfast was both quick and hot, lush bacon. despite being above a busy pub noise was very minimal and could only hear patrons when they went out back for a ciggy. Would highly recommend

A very clean, comfortable and value for money room. Well situated with small car park at rear but easy access to other car parks in the town. Good selection for breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Bar downstairs. Newsagents, restaurants, coffee shops close by.

Well you know your're in Wales as soon as you walk in the Drovers Arms, the majority of the customers are chatting away in Welsh and they all look at you when you speak English, having said that I did feel welcome and found it fascinating to hear the Welsh language. Close to the the main town so a good... More

Stayed here on a Saturday Night, friendly staff very welcoming and rooms clean and comfortable. Good shower. No wardrobes, just a clothes rail which was absolutely fine. Town is very busy with lots of young people having a good time as well as older ones, everyone very friendly. Bar area quite noisy which is expected and breakfast was good with... More

A good rate for a double room and nice breakfast. Shower is very good, but bed was not that comfy (more lumpy) and the room was far too cold at night. Car parking for 3/4 cars is around the rear, if you can find the way in. The hotel is a really an inn and the bar is essentially the... More

Clean but basic and out-dated rooms. No wi fi in rooms and no where to sit quietly in the bar area. Breakfast is ok but very greasy. For 65 pound a night I have stayed in much nicer places. Needs a refurb and Wii fi available in rooms.
