We live locally and our visitors wanted to go somewhere nice to eat in Llandovery. They spotted the Castle Hotel on the way through and despite our reservations about this place (we have never had a decent meal there, and it doesn't have a good reputation locally) we thought we would give it one last try. This was a huge... More

We choose this hotel as we had an excellent lunch here last October, and it gets a good review in 'Welsh Rarebits' However it did not live up to our expectations. The first night dinner was good, but left a lot to be desired. However the second evening we waited for well over an hour for our order to be... More

I stayed at the end of July and was lucky to get a room as the Royal Welsh Show was on and the whole area was busy. The room was huge, overlooking the courtyard and with two large windows. It was very hot so the through breeze was a godsend. The room was spotless and so was the bathroom. The... More

The staff are polite and very helpful. The building is well placed for the town and surrounding area. We arrive early evening and used the bar/restaurant. The food was of a good standard. Unfortunately, our room suffered from poorly maintenance. Light bulbs were missing or broken, the bath was chipped, the shower curtain too long and dirty. The bathroom generally... More

I have eaten at The Castle many times and usually the food is good and the service from the young waitress and manageress who usually serves me is very good. On this occasion we had a young waiter and the manager and it was very poor. I only asked for steak to be served with just vegetables instead of chips... More

The hotel is charming and old. The rooms are individual and the staff were helpful and friendly. We found the room above the bar noisy but were moved and a discount applied on request. We moved to a room on the top floor which wad very nice but also very hot. We had to leave early due to illness but... More

The hotel itself was lovely, with a quiet lounge off from the bar and situated in a lovely area. The bedrooms were comfortable and clean with WIFI throughout the hotel. Quality of staff tended to fluctuate dependant on who dealt with you and when I went to order a drink, they were more interested in dealing with a large meal... More

Stayed recently at the Castle Hotel, it was ok,our room was small, clean,but rather tired and overlooked an old caravan. When I look at other reviews and photos for this hotel our room certainly was not as good. Had expected more especially as it was booked back in August 2013.
