We had a lovely stay here. Kathryn and Dave made sure of that. Delicious dinner, great service, beautiful room, good breakfast including "Sensible Daves" own home made granola. Can't wait to come back!

We had a soggy day out at the Welsh botanical gardens, some 40 minutes away and so turned up early - there's only so much endless drizzle a man can take. Thank God we jacked the garden in early, within 30 minutes of being warmly welcomed, we were attacking the well stocked (and well commented on) honesty bar, defrosting next... More

Sorry you did not get to see Llandovery, it has its own charm but on a soggy day not too inviting. The Botanical Gardens are lovely as is Aberglasney, you need a return trip Regards Kathryn and David More

Lovely couple running this place, full of character and kindness. Room was comfortable as you'd want and both the breakfast and dinner tasty and well prepared. Lounge area is great, and the tea or honesty bar welcome after a long day out and about. Definitely recommended.

Somewhat unprepossessing from the outside, but a joy inside. The rooms are not large but all kited out well. The beds are comfortable. The owners are a delight..so charming and friendly. The food is great.....locally sourced, beautifully cooked and nicely served. The house wines were very good and so reasonably priced. All in all you will want to return!

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
