We booked over the internet. They fail to let you know you are staying in rooms over a pub. Room and bathroom were dated but clean. On the good side: great location, walking distance to shopping, restaurants, bus, train ; breakfast was excellent and Wfii available in public areas. On the bad side: Noisy during weekend late nights (Friday and... More

Hi , your comments both positive and negative are noted, given your appraisal of the great location , in the centre of the busiest street in town, logically it brings with it on weekends lots of people and passing trade, we are very open and honest about how busy it gets on a Friday and Saturday evenings, and we are...

We arrived in town with nowhere to stay and went to the first hotel we found. Host was very nice and let us look at a room which we saw was fine for a quick layover. They had private parking which is a big plus. Room was clean, though, since it's an old hotel, there was noise from other rooms.... More

Hi George , your comments reiterate exactly how we market our rooms, on a bed & breakfast. Basis,, most of our rooms are let for one or two nights,we don't claim to be a 5 star resort . We do however offer big rooms, with a lot of extras that most people don't even acknowledge in the reviews , at... More

We stayed overnight on a Saturday night, to collect our daughter from university. The hotel is well located in the centre of town. There is some parking around the back of the hotel. The bar is located at the front door and doubles as reception. On our arrival there was a noisy party going on in the bar. We were... More

Comments noted, as an historic listed building that had been a coaching inn and public house for over 150 years on the busiest street in town, we would expect to be busy on a Saturday night, The night you stayed we did have a small party going on in the function room, but music is turned off at 12, considering...

On the plus side, good value for money, good location. Great cooked breakfast. Room seemed clean, but dated. Shower was very good. Good size kettle and mugs in room. Tea bags provided but no coffee. Negatives: bed by the window in twin room 16 was ridiculously saggy. Very uncomfortable. I would feel embarrassed if I expected someone to sleep on... More

Hi, your comments have been noted and we have refurbished the entire beds in each room, strangely we note that the bed was actually broken, it was not on your arrival, but if you had mentioned it to reception it would have been replaced before your second nights stay. Mind reading is not included in the room rate , but... More

We stayed one night, Emma was very friendly & helpful. Room was spotless breakfast was lovely. Because its over a pub it is noisy but we knew about this before we went so it wasnt a problem for us. Excellent value for the money.

The hotel is situated conveniently in the middle of Carmarthen, close to the shopping area and restaurants. When we arrived, the girl behind the bar was very helpful and attentive. She directed us to the hotel's car park - easy to find, just off the main street behind the hotel. The room was basic but very clean. The bathroom was... More

The price at gbp 54 per night, isn't cheap for a B and B... Still, it was where I needed to be and options were limited.

We have just returned from an overnight stay at the Drovers Arms. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The room was extremely clean and the breakfast was well presented. The only niggle was the tv was in the wrong place so it couldn't actually be watched while in bed. Other than that it was perfect. I would highly recommend... More

We stayed to nights and would not hesitate to stay here again. From the moment we entered the staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and cooked to order. Location could not have been better, all in all a great stay.
