Approaching the Drovers, though could be put off at having to walk into a very basic bar area to check in. A little intimadating if on your own. Room was basic but clean and comfortable with tea & coffee facilities and ensuite. Breakfast served from 7-9am. Small hotel car park at the back. Otherwise public car park free after six... More

Very basic room but clean and OK for just one night. No noise from the bar downstairs or from outside. Breakfast was only average - the bacon was very thick and more like gammon. Friendly staff. Managed to park on site.

My ancestors came from Carmarthen, Wales. I wanted to see what it looked like. It's a small town but not a "tiny" town. We walked to the hotel from the train. It wasn't very far - about 5 blocks. When we came in the hotel, I thought that place wasn't right because it was a pub room. I said to... More

Really enjoyed our stay here last night, the welcome was fantastic. The rooms were clean and tidy with an amazing shower. Breakfast was both quick and hot, lush bacon. despite being above a busy pub noise was very minimal and could only hear patrons when they went out back for a ciggy. Would highly recommend

A very clean, comfortable and value for money room. Well situated with small car park at rear but easy access to other car parks in the town. Good selection for breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Bar downstairs. Newsagents, restaurants, coffee shops close by.

Well you know your're in Wales as soon as you walk in the Drovers Arms, the majority of the customers are chatting away in Welsh and they all look at you when you speak English, having said that I did feel welcome and found it fascinating to hear the Welsh language. Close to the the main town so a good... More

Stayed here on a Saturday Night, friendly staff very welcoming and rooms clean and comfortable. Good shower. No wardrobes, just a clothes rail which was absolutely fine. Town is very busy with lots of young people having a good time as well as older ones, everyone very friendly. Bar area quite noisy which is expected and breakfast was good with... More
