Have just stayed at the Diplomat for two nights with my wife. It is situated just a few miles off of the M4 at Llanelli, and is well sign posted and easy to find. When you arrive and drive into the car park you are in the lower car park so if you leave your car there you will have... More

I'd stayed at Best Western hotels a few times before with varying amounts of success. But I have to say The Diplomat Hotel has exceeded my expectations. Excellent food, rooms, level of cleanliness, staff helpfulness, facilities etc etc. The Spa pool facilities are small but clean and it good working order. Small points that would improve a future stay, A... More

staff were ok but this hotel is like something out of a time warp, very old and dated. Unfortunately this is one of the better hotels in the area but perhaps like the area itself needs a massive facelift.

Top class massage at the Eden Spa. Having had many spa day/massage visits, this was highly rated. Very professional, experienced masseuse. Relaxing setting with great facilities and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend Thank you very much

Booked a spa package with over night stay. Package included, bed & breakfast, 2 treatments in the spa, lunch with glass of bubbly & 3 course evening meal, all for £110 absolute bargain. Staff both in the spa and restaurant can't do enough for you, so helpful. Manager always comes to introduce himself. Absolute fantastic stay. Will be back soon... More

We have stayed here a couple of times with our dog. They have a separate lodge outside of the main hotel but within the grounds, for people with dogs. The accomodation in the lodge is very good, with an outside area to walk dogs. We cannot comment on the hotel rooms. The bar area is pleasant and the dogs can... More

Stayed here on business. Rooms were ok if a little dark. restaurant served wide choice of food which was nice as was the breakfast. Can''t fault the staff who were pleasant and welcoming. Didn't use the spa facilities so cannot comment. Free wi fi was a nice touch and a good speed as well
