I stayed at the Black Lion on a business trip and really did not have a clue what to expect before arriving but was pleasantly surprised! The rooms are comfortable and are incredible value - for the price, I do not think they could be beaten. Yes, there are no fancy extras, but the hotel provides a warm room, comfortable... More

Yes, you could quibble on a few things here - the TV only has one channel and there are no remote controls (a former staff member told me that none of the rooms have remotes), plus the curtains were only just attached to the curtain rail ... but the bed was comfy, the breakfast was excellent and the staff were...

This was our second stay at the Black Lion and we found the room (103) to be comfortable and clean but in need of some minor maintenance. The wall paper was showing its age, and the shower, while providing hot water, had loose fittings and only limited pressure. The room was particularly warm, and heat was regulated by opening the...

No sockets near beds so no bedside lights, no... More

We loved it. The place is very 'lived in' but we enjoyed the feeling of that. How ever if the brewer 'Brains' chucked just a few quid at the place. It would be lovely. Staff are lovely and helpful. It's good value for money and what more can you ask for? Want perfect decor? Find a travel lodge. Even that's... More

Just returned from two nights in Lampeter with mates for a firearms training weekend with WMS firearms. The hotel is basic, but you get what you pay for. The food is plentiful and also good value with plenty of parking in the hotel. If you are in the area and you need a cheap place to stay, then i thoroughly... More

The Black Lion is a well known spot in Lampeter and so must live up to a name and standard. The staff are pleasant enough they made me feel welcome and I did not feel out of place. I stayed for one night and included in my decent standard room price, which was £20 or £25 I had a good... More

Lovely hotel and pub/restaurant. Staff extremely efficient, polite, friendly and worked really hard to welcome us. Room really comfortable and cosy. Meal in the restaurant was extremely good and excellent value for money. Breakfast also really good. Only negative our room was on the front road which was quite noisy especially the bell. Would recommend this place completely and excellent... More
