We stayed at room 205. Got to say very good for the price. We had a good room with a lot of space. The heating and hot water is very hot which is a very good point. Very friendly staff. Breakfast is very good as well. Bad point is that my wife had a bad rib eye steak. There was... More

The location was ideal with plenty of parking space out the back. The rooms were in very poor condition and not very clean at all. The shower did not work very well and the carpet still had dirt on it from the day before. The traffic noise was very bad as I had a terrible 3 nights stay being woken... More

Placed in the centre of Lampeter. Old coaching Inn. Friendly staff and locals at the bar. Pub grub. Good old premises. A real old coaching Inn at a budget price. Have stayed there twice now, and thoroughly enjoyed my stay, just relaxing, walking by the river and having a rather good pint while reading the Sunday papers. It is not... More

On a positive note, the staff and food were good; the sheets were clean and the heating worked well. However, If you don't like 70's style such as an avocado bath suite and I don't, then you are not going to like room 201. It's made a lot worse by broken tiles, a mouldy ceiling, missing light fittings and a... More

Big airy room with a double and single beds. Very friendly and helpful. No bedside lamps and unable to locate a hairdryer but lots of tea, coffee and milk provided. Food was lovely and service quick. Room accessible without going through the main entrance. Ample parking and very quiet despite being on the main road. Got the impression that this... More

This may sound rather contradictory it was always worth staying there as the food is great and the staff are very helpful, the hotel its self is ok, tired looking and in desperate need of a refurbishment, on the downside the “new” manager. They say a new broom sweeps clean but not on this occasion. If this guy was in... More

Had to book in to this hotel after the local B and B i had planned to stay in had a family bereavement. I wished I had looked at others but I went via booking.com and booked the Black Lion. The place is in need of some serious TLC and everything about the experience was poor. Check in was done... More
