Staff were pleasant and helpful, the pub had a friendly vibe and breakfast was great. Town centre location. The room I was in was pretty shabby, there was vomit presumably from a previous guest on the toilet rim suggesting the cleaner had not even looked. The bathroom was dingy and dated, the carpets not hoovered. I would not stay again... More

The breakfasts were magnificent - very tasty and very large. We also had an evening meal which was also very tasty. A great stay in a brilliant part of... More

I have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions not by choice but business related and it get worse each stay.

I stayed here recently for one night. It is a very difficult hotel to review. Things that were good about it were very good, but the bad stuff seriously needs attention now. ok the good bits. The hotel is very centrally located right in the middle of the main street of Lampeter.Bed sheets and linen are very clean and crispy... More

Staff serving dinner were very unfriendly and blunt when serving. Window very drafty in room leaving room cold over night. Ordered sandwiches for next day's work and given them at night before bed, no where to refrigerate sandwiches forcing us to leave sandwiches in the coldest place being on the window cill by the drafty window!

this hotel is on the Main Street in this small town. The staff are very friendly. There is lots of parking, but the lot is a thru fare for a constant stream of walkers. The rooms are clean, but the furniture is a bit shabby. The food in the pub is very good. The wifi is open and slow probably... More

Good value for your money & great breakfast. The staff are very nice and helpful. Location is in the centre of the town which is great. The rooms need updating and the shower needs to be looked at as it just run cold and not much pressure. But for some reason the hot water and pressure was great in the... More
