We came to stay on a stunningly sunny weekend in march. The warm welcome, beautiful bedroom, comfy lounge, delicious honesty bar, amazing food... The list goes on. It is also the perfect spot to explore the local area (highly recommend the waterfall walks) and you feel spoilt and relaxed when you leave. We loved it so much we booked it... More

I've been meaning to write our review for some time. We stayed for one night on St Dwynwen's day (Welsh Valentines day) and our stay was perfect. I can only agree with all the previous reviews and voice how wonderful the service was. Our evening meal was gorgeous and if you're a gin lover (as I am), the honesty bar... More

Once again we were given a warm and genuine welcome by Kathy and David and offered service which goes far beyond the norm. We have come to expect the quality of David's cooking... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night. We were greeted with tea and scones straight out of the oven by the lovely, friendly owners. The room (we stayed in The Physicians of Myddfai) was stylish and beautifully done with a very comfy bed and great Clarins products. There isn't much to do in Llandovery but the surrounding area...

You will feel special, spoilt and soooo relaxed when you leave the gorgeous New White Lion in Llandovery. You will have been served delicious homemade goodies as standard, reclined on sumptuous soft furnishings and enjoyed a glass or two by the fireplace. You may venture out into the countryside for a bracing walk or perhaps just chill, as we did... More
