Stayed here for 4 days while working nearby. It's not a septic, minimalist boutique hotel, but rather has managed to pull off the trick of being modern and slick, whilst retaining all its olde worlde features and character. There's wood paneling, creaky floorboards, uneven floors, fires in Winter(probably) good local beers, a fine spirit selection and wonderful, fresh locally sourced... More

The Castle Hotel is a nice, Old and quirky Hotel with lots of history. My room was basic but adequate and was very clean, very comfortable with good facilities and toiletries. The evening meals were fantastic and generous, so good we did not bother to venture out any where else. Please be aware that if you go for the whole... More

Stayed here on 14 July 2014 on our way to Laugharne, saying in the Nelson suite. Nice room with a good sized bathroom and a dressing room. It is right on the main road through Llandovery but this didn't really bother us. The ladies in the local history society, who have an exhibition in the hotel will tell you all... More

My wife and I stayed there for one night for a Birthday treat! The Nelson suite is beautifully done out with a lovely en suite and four poster bed making it spacious, luxurious but not pretentious. The evening meal was outstanding. My wife had the pulled pork. The menu is wonderful and the food cooked on a Josper Oven, the... More

We were welcomed by a friendly member of staff who told us that rooms had been altered & we were shown to a wonderful room containing a 4 -poster bed.There was an excellent bathroom with large shower & a roll-top bath-all quite modern & very clean. We enjoyed a very good meal in the restuarant -service was friendly & efficient.

We stayed in the Nelson Suite about three years ago and having booked a week's self catering in Elan Valley decided to book the same room as a fitting end to our holiday. The Nelson Suite is delightful and having had only a shower at our cottage the previous week, I loved the roll top bath and spacious luxury bathroom.... More

Rooms were well maintained and spacious but the food was actually the best i have seen for many years. you can tell there has... More

Staff did their best. But they had a poor hand. Room 18: looked great, stifling hot, nice size bed, clean. Then went to toilet - nice little shower room, recently modernised, some poor workmanship but OK. Ah - no towels. What's the smell? Oh dear - the extractor fan for the kitchen pumps its fumes out a few feet from... More

Stayed at The Castle for 1 night after staying at one of their wonderful sister hotels.The experience could not have been more different .Check in was slow-the room was not ready when we arrived (granted 30 minutes early). We had booked a Better Room but were given a Good Room (#15) that was,in honesty,a Bad Room.It was small,poorly furnished and... More
