I have to admit that I am a Tripadvisor virgin but I had to sign up and give a review to this Hotel because I think there are a lot of sad people out there, who just go out of their way to give nasty reviews! you know the type's, they're the glass half empty brigade, who don't care what effect their comments may have on this great Hotel's future business.
Our stay on 24th Sept 11 was booked through Booking.com who failed to inform the Hotel that I had requested an additional bed for our teenage son who was starting Uni the next day. Even though this error was not the fault of the Hotel, they were very apologetic and resolved the issue quickly, by adding another bed to the room..they then insisted we will not be paying for the room. The hotel is just as you would expect a Welsh Village Hotel to be..very quaint and the food and service was superb. The staff were very attentive, friendly, helpful and informative.
Our room was more than adequate and well equipped, clean comfy beds, nice en suite.
The view from the window was to the road and this was pleasant as Lampeter is a pretty place, with the town bell chiming sweetly till midnight.
When we went down for breakfast we were given the option of whatever we liked, so we opted for the Full Welsh Breakfast with the tastiest sausages I've ever had. We were amazed when we were told that the breakfast too was free because of the Booking.com mix up.
All in all, wonderful and we will be back but if you decide not to go to this hotel then great! at least it will be available for me when I next visit my son.
