This was my first time at The New White Lion and when I first arrived I fell in love with the homely feel that the owners David and Cath had created. There is attention to detail here both in the rooms and the common areas and the well stocked honesty bar is a nice touch. Llandovery is a great little... More

Just returned from a two night stay and had to write a review. The hotel is simply brilliant. We loved the detail of the decor which made us feel like we were staying in Kath and Dave's home rather than a generic hotel. Kath and Dave are so welcoming that it is impossible for you to not feel welcome during... More

We stayed here for the royal welsh show. The food is fabulous, worthy of any city restaurant. The hospitality is second to none and the feel is home from home ( with great decor, food and service) even the toiletries are clarins! Just go visit :)

And so for my third visit to The New White Lion......this time for a week with my 18 year old son with emphasis on walking The Gower Peninsula. Luckily this was a glorious week in terms of weather. Llandovery looked glorious with the sun bringing out the best of everyone. Such a friendly town and so nice to sit outside... More

....a bit off the beaten track in a fairly featureless town, whatever is lacking in the foregoing is certainly made up for in the quality of this property and the welcome from it's fantastic and fascinating hosts. Pull up a chair, open a cold beer and relax and enjoy this gem...

Kath & David are the perfect hosts. They manage to tread that fine line between making you feel like long lost family without being overbearing. For example, instead of a welcome cup of tea David served Pimms. He joined us for a chat before leaving us to enjoy the beautiful lounge. We felt immediately at home. The rooms are superb,... More

I can't really fault The New White Lion, it is just a great little hotel. It is stylishly decorated throughout and the lounge is especially comfortable. The food is very good and the honesty bar would put quite a few bars to shame. The owners David and Kathryn are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble for them. It's the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights from the 27th of June. We both left wishing we could have stayed for a week and we're already trying to book another trip! We've both travelled around a lot and stayed in a lot of hotels but this was miles better than anywhere we've ever stayed anywhere in the world.... More

It was great having you to stay and thanks for the glowing review. It was great that you took full advantage of the house to chill out but also managed a walk or two and then you certainly deserved a glass from the bar. When we have time, it is lovely to sit and talk to guests even though David... More
