We stayed here for my partner's 50th birthday, along with our Bichon Frise. The place is really olde worlde. Our room was huge and sparkling clean. The floorboards were really squeaky, but that is expected in such an old place - although they did interrupt my partner's sleep as he got woken up several times by people in the next...

Whilst staying in Llandovery we thought the 2nd best place out of 12 on tripadvisor was a good idea to try. This is a nice old building central to the town. It has a very large bar/eating area with beautiful low old beams. Llandovery seems to have a "thing" for quite bright/gaudy colours inside and out and this was no...

We had room 10, which had the ladies and gents toilets on the other side of the wall. Walls very thin so you heard every use of toilet, every conversation, constant loud hand driers and the odd person vomiting. Awful. Even though it closed at 11, people still using it until the early hours. The room was clean, but people...

I recently stayed here with my wife for a two-night break. Reviews looked positive so we arrived with high hopes. Unfortunately we were disappointed with our trip and felt that the hotel is in need of some TLC. It does have a certain quaint charm but we felt that this is now tipping over into being a bit shabby. A...

This charming pub has a blackboard outside offering lunch at £5/£5.95. I went for lunch with a good friend. I am gluten intolerant and was extremely disappointed that the special lunch offer did not include any gluten free options. In the end I ended up paying approx £14 for something that was gluten free. Come on guys ...there are many...

An overnight stay, but we will be back. The Kings Head is a welcoming, friendly place to stay. The food is excellent, the staff attentive without being over friendly or intrusive. The building is steeped in history with original features and the rooms large and very comfortable to ensure a good night's rest.

This place has everything from great history, location, parking, through to fantastic staff, food and rooms. What more can I say except that I will be back as soon as I can and I will be staying here again rather than anywhere else in Llandovery.

Six of us had the most enjoyable night's stay at this very quaint inn. We loved it's antiquity and rambling corridors. Although our room was a little on the cold side, the bed was warm and comfy and the whole ambience extremely friendly. The food was delicious

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Once the home of the Bank of the Black Ox, the Kings Head in Llandovery is a traditional coaching inn with a history that dates back to the 17th century.Nooks and crannies, crooked floors and exposed beams together with great food and refurbished bed and breakfast accommodation, make the Kings Head the perfect modern day coaching inn and the preferred choice of many; including tourists, commuters and even members of the Royal Household.Overlooking the cobbled market square, our location is simply superb. In the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, you’ll find us just off the A40, half way between the Eastern borders of Wales and the ferry ports in the West.But it isn’t just our location that keeps regulars and visitors coming back for more. Mouth watering food, a selection of great ales and a true Welsh welcome all await you at the Kings Head in Llandovery. ... more   less
