The Cawdor is a really nice hotel in Llandeilo with a good choice of rooms. We couldn't get the room we wanted when we booked, but chose a room in the end which turned out to be beautifully furnished and wonderfully comfortable.
We checked in late afternoon and everything was smooth and efficient. The receptionist kindly led us to our room on the second floor at the front of the building. It was a good sized room, with a king-sized bed and also a good sized bathroom. The room also had two arm chairs. The bed turned out to be one of the most comfortable we have slept in.
As the room was on the second floor, it was only possible to open the window a small amount (health and safety!). The room didn't have built-in air-con, but did have a free-standing cooler/aircon/humidifier thing. This worked to a certain extent, but the room was warm through the night. The bathroom had a great bath - which has to be the fastest filling bath weve ever seen.
Decor in the hotel is tasteful and common areas pleasantly furnished.
The hotel is in the main high street, but you can pull up outside and unload your luggage. After that you can then move your car to the hotels private car park round the back of the hotel. From there a short footpath leads back to the hotel.
There is a good lounge area to sit to have drinks before dinner. We had to wait quite a while before someone came with menus etc. However, the evening we were there was quite busy as a wedding reception had been taking place. There was one decent real ale on tap - so I was lucky. The dining room is a bit cold in ambience, although they have obviously tried to dress it with local art. Possibly different lighting or some added furniture would help warm the place. Service was good and the meal was well prepared. There were some good, reasonably-priced wine. My wife left her handbag in the dining room, and the kind receptionist called us to tell us and delivered it to our room. Thank you, that was so kind.
This is a popular hotel, so check the excellent hotel website and book early.
