The complementary tea, coffee and biscuits in the room was good too. Clean The bad:- The room (201) - badly dated decor, part of light fitting missing, single glazed window - let... More

The Black Lion Lampeter, is a traditional B&B with a warm, friendly atmosphere. The staff were attentive & lovely, the service was impeccable and the food absolutely amazing. I booked the family room which was huge and comfortable especially as I have a 4 year old! The restaurant was relaxed and easy to accommodate a young family. We had a... More

From the moment we arrived we were treated to polite and friendly customer service. All the staff we encountered responded to our queries promptly and made sure our stay was both comfortable and relaxed. The en-suite room was clean, the bed linen/towels white and fresh, tea/coffee making facilities plus quality biscuits were appreciated. Although the carpet & furnishings are a... More

Reasonable budget hotel. Bed was good but room furniture very tired. Really needs a refurb especially windows and doors. Bar and dining area ok but food is very good. Very nice staff and the breakfast is extremely good.

Recently stayed here and I have to say that we weren't expecting too much, however we were pleasantly surprised. For the money we paid, we thought we had great value for money. Yes, the hotel is tired in places, and it's not the place for a romantic weekend, however for a group of friends it was great. Some rooms have... More

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

Firstly the staff manly the head chef are rude and have an attitude about doing their job. Secondly the rooms are dirty and the showers are awful that just trickle out. They have put new TVs in...
