Why work in hospitality if you don't like people. At breakfast my greeting was 'tea or coffee, brown or white toast. (And good morning to you). My partner came down 10 minutes later and was greeted by 'tea or coffee (coffee please), he's having white toast, whadda you want? I'm not good in the morning but managed not to say... More

We got ourselves a groupon deal for this hotel. On phoning to book we couldn't get out chosen room so the lady I spoke to said we could have another choice and a bottle of wine each night with dinner. This was fine for us. We arrived in Llandovery and found the hotel easily, the staff showed us to our... More

It would seem that one man's meat is another man's poison (ref previous review). Glad to see that the Castle Burger is back on form ! More

Went to the castle hotel for lunch as it had been recommended to us. But never again. Food was awful, full of grease, burger left me feeling sick. Said it was 100% beef but I don't know what was in it, I don't want to even think about it now. Onion rings was just oil I had grease dripping out... More

Stayed here for two nights. Room was a nice size, clean and comfortable. The hotel is a little quirky which I loved. Old creaky staircases and squeaky floor boards. Had a nice evening meal in the restaurant. I had the cod which was lovely. One of the best battered cod I have had in a while. Breakfast was good with... More

We are most concerned by this review. The Castle Burger is our Best Selling dish, made from steak mince with a little seasoning, herbs etc. It is cooked in the Josper Oven which is an indoor barbeque so any fat drips out during the cooking process thus it seems hugely unlikely that the burger could be greasy as you describe....

First of all this is an old building so you do get the wobbly floors, stairs and floor boards which is completely unavoidable but in my opinion gives a lot of character along with the history. Reception is a very small podium type desk in the middle of the hall way, with a very friendly and helpful young lady taking... More

Well located in the centre of Llandovery, this hotel is a safe haven for travellers. Basically a very large pub but the room we had was large and well-appointed with a decent bathroom. Evening meal was OK but not spectacular but breakfast set you up for the day. Nothing not to like.

Stayed at this hotel for our aniversary, good points, really good dog friendly, they lay tables for breakfast in the hotel lounge, where you can take your dog. Clean rooms, good breakfast, friendly staff. Bad points, creaky floorboards. Room very warm but can not open window as people are sitting outside drinking and eating and traffic outside. People coming up... More

Very good central location. Room quality good, some of the common areas look tired and are ready for s refresh. Eat evening meal in the hotel, menu choice good and was well priced. Guinness on draft would have made the experience even better!

Good location, clean & comfortable. A little dated and creeky floors. A little over priced but if you can get a good deal it's great! Fantastically located if you are going walking in the area around.
