We recently stayed here for a couple of nights whilst visiting a friend in Lampeter. Sure the rooms are a little dated but this is made up by the helpful and friendly staff here.

This isn't the Ritz and at £40 a night for a double or twin Value room (£50 for a Standard) you wouldn't expect it to be. What it is is a clean, no frills hotel with friendly, professional staff which serves an excellent breakfast. There were a few niggles eg twin beds of different heights, a tiny TV with only... More

Lampeter is remote as it gets in mid Wales but it's a lovely little town that's well worth a visit. At £30 for a night with breakfast (single room), you'll struggle to find a better value for money, place to stay anywhere..I was there on work..plenty of car parking behind the hotel and a decent range of beers and pub...

For what I paid for my stay, bed and breakfast, it worked out to be good value. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable though the room was very hot and that was with the radiator turned off. Although the hot water in the sink and bath was red hot it was only just warm coming out of... More

Stayed for one night as needed to be in area on business before getting the Pembroke ferry the next day. Adequate room, not smart trendy furnishings, but very clean and presentable (with nice clean bedding) albeit tired and in need of redecoration. Bathroom was a bit of a sauna with some kind of underfloor heating (room 209), but better warm... More
