“Very relaxing, smart and great food”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I stayed here last year in July for work. Very impressed with the size and decor of my room.I had supper at the restaurant that evening which was very well prepared. Breakfast was delicious. I took some sandwiches in my room later that afternoon with some bara brith. All delicious.
Recommend this hotel wholeheartedly.

lovely small bijoux hotel with good food and service a bit of a treck from the car park . room was delightful but roasting on a hot night a big feather duvet is not for this weather - had to ask for a sheet, great bathroom. ate in hotel good food but inclined to put diners sitting too close together even when not full, reataurant service basic but very pleasant and helpful. a lovely town with some great shops and esp jewellery.!

Room Tip: dont have a room on the higher floors in the heat !

This is an old coaching inn that is an iconic part of Llandeilo. It is situated on the main street, which can be very busy with cars, agricultural and heavy goods vehicles. HOWEVER, once you are inside you are able to relax and enjoy the ambience of the traditional public areas. HOWEVER, once in the bedroom you are met with a bit of a modern wow. I stopped in Allt y ferin which had a modern four poster bed which was very comfortable with good linen. There are plenty of lights and plug sockets and free wifi, which is a little temperamental. The room had a TV with a limited number of channels and a dvd player. To my mind the tea making facilities were not of a quality comparable with the standard of the room.

It was a very hot day and the electric fan and large bottle of tap water were much appreciated.

The bathroom was very spacious with a high spec bath and shower, plenty of good quality towels and bathrobes. There are no small bottles of toiletries or showercaps, cotton wool etc but fixed containers of Moulton Brown shampoo and shower gel are provided.

I ordered sandwiches from room service and they were of good quality, very fairly priced, obviously freshly made and arrived very promptly. Soft drinks are reasonably priced as well.

There is parking to the rear of the hotel. There is not a separate side tab button for this on the website. You need to go to 'At a Glance Guide ' to find out one very important piece of information. Access from the car park to the hotel is down a series of steep steps. You can park outside the hotel to unload your luggage and any passengers. If you are on your own I would recommend taking a slightly longer but much easier walk by leaving from the vehicle exit and walking down to the main street.

There were one or two inconsistencies between the information on the website and the information for guests in the room eg which days the restaurant is open. On the whole the room was very clean but corners of the shower and some of the tile grouting are beginning to attract a black mould.

Breakfast was delicious and obviously freshly prepared. There was with a good choice of cooked items.

I have eaten here many times but this is the first time I stayed. All in all I was pleased with the experience and would recommend it, particularly if you are attending an event in town.

Room Tip: I was at the back of the hotel so did not get any road noise. There was a constant hum from an air c...

This is one of my favourite hotels in South Wales. I would like to disagree with previous reviewers who commented about the restaurant and staff. We have never been rushed to the table and always find the staff attentive and knowledgeable. I think the comments made about wine lists depend on your personal preference on wine. I only like certain types so would have those bottles regardless of food chosen. And speaking of the food it is amazing!! Fresh, good quality and locally sourced the food we had was the best we've had in a long time. Room was lovely a little coat of paint needed here and there but still lovely. Can't wait for our next stay now!!

Room Tip: Look for special deals where you can have an expensive room for up to half the price!!

Had a good overnight stay in Cawder. Arms. Food and service excellent. It was a present for my husband's birthday. However our room was up four flights of stairs- no lift as listed buildings. In addition the room was too hot,to be fair,there was a fan. The car park is located behind the building and again, there were steps from the courtyard to the car park. Good hotel,but be mindful if you have walking difficulty to book a room on lower floor.

booked this hotel on a last minute deal with booking.com. We decided that we just wanted a night away which wouldn't take us to long to drive- some where not too busy.The deal was excellent £65 room/breakfast.We arrived at 6.15pm and were promptly checked in and shown to our room, the receptionist informed us that we had been upgraded as it was the only room left.We were shown to room 10 which was a suite at the front of the hotel with large bay window- four poster bed, two leather sofas in the bay to relax and a lovely large bathroom. The room was tastefully decorated in rich colours and exceptionally clean.We proceeded down to the bar for a drink which we took out and sat at the front of the hotel as it was such a lovely warm evening.There is a nice lounge to relax in and you can either eat in the bar or restaurant. We only ate breakfast here which was lovely. There is ample parking at the rear of the hotel.The staff are very warm and friendly-we wouldn't hesitate to return.

This is an old 18th century hotel, which to be frank does not look (to me anyway) that attractive from the outside. But don`t let looks deceive you because inside it is very nice. I have stayed twice and the rooms I have been allocated have been very spacious, as were the en suites, with some excellent showers as well as a bath. There are in- room safes - but they did not work and I was told that are to be replaced. The staff are very pleasant and breakfast top - notch. The meeting room was just what we were after. There is a spacious car park at the rear - with no problems finding a space. The hotel offers a la carte and bar meals - all very reasonably priced and delicious. All - in- all a very good stay.
