We only stayed one night here, so didn't get a chance to try the dinner menu, which looked very appetising. Our room in this beautiful grade 2 Georgian house was very comfortable, and despite the heat, I had the best night's sleep for ages. Dogs were friendly, though the cat was a bit stand-offish. Breakfast was good, and we enjoyed... More

We stayed here three nights and had a lovely room with a settee by the window overlooking the garden. Cynthia does everything herself and makes guests really welcome. She does dinner if ordered at least 24 hours in advance and the menu is on the web site. We had dinner the first night, which was very good.

We (2 couples) stayed here for 2 nights. For one couple of us it was the second stay. On this trip Sarnau Mansion was our starting point to St. David's. We had the 2 ensuite rooms, which are very large and comfortable. The bathrooms are very clean. In the evening it is a pleasure to walk around the site. Because... More

Lovely house, charming owner, comfortable beds, good breakfast. & all for £90 for a double or twin room… Recommended! The only problem is where to eat on a Monday evening when apparently The Butcher's Arms is closed! The local village pub has food that is, well, it is edible… but look for somewhere else on a Monday...

A very relaxing retreat in lovely grounds and with very friendly, helpful hosts.The house is quiet and comfortable with a homely feel, breakfasts are delicous and more than adequate. Be aware that a vehicle is required, being outside of Carmarthen (which is not a bad thing ) puts it in a good position for visiting some beautiful surrounding villages but... More

I have a history of being difficult to impress! Having read reviews for many bed and breakfast in the Carmarthen area I decided upon Sarnau Mansion. I was staying the the area overnight for business purposes as I live 100 miles away and decided traveling 2 days in a row was a waste of time when I could get valuable... More

We visited Sarnau Mansion hosted by Mark and Cynthia this weekend for a friend's wedding. We were greeted by Cynthia to her beautiful home and we were made very welcome immediately. Our rooms were warm, spacious, clean, the bed was comfortable and everything well laid out, a gorgeous en-suite that deserves a mention alone!! We had a Lamb Shank meal... More

I ran a training event in the Royal Botanical Gardens last week and was looking for a B&B nearby. So glad I found Sarnau Mansion. What a peaceful and interesting place. My room was spacious and immaculate. I loved the stripped floor boards, big comfortable bed and the lovely views of the trees from the windows. Cynthia is a lovely... More

Unimpressed with Carmarthen itself, we arrived at our hotel rather early (thanks to the Sat Nav). As we intended to stay for 3 nights our first impressions were, 'Oh dear, this may be a mistake'. We could hear dogs barking and the facade appeared a bit the worse for wear. However, on returning two hours later, we were met by... More

We've just come back from a short stay at Sarnau Mansion. Cynthia is the perfect hostess and the mansion house is beautiful. Sadly we didn't get a chance to see the grounds due to the rain (bah, Welsh weather!) but from where we were looking, they were gorgeous too. Our room had a set of wonderful double aspect windows which... More
