“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

Planned on staying one night, ended up staying for three. The room was large, clean with a lovely bathroom. Breakfast was probably the best I've ever had at a hotel. We ate evening meals each night and everything was really tasty. Wine list not bad either. Service was great, everyone was welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again,

We stopped in the pub for a beer, and we liked the place so we decided to stay overnight. The room was very large and clean, bathroom was ok. The staff at the reception was particularly friendly and helpful, the guy also helped me find a phone number and call a person in Cardiff and didn't charge anything for it. We also had dinner there, and it was excellent. Unfortunately Llandovery doesn't offer too much to visit, but we had a good walk all the same and thanks to Kings Head we really enjoyed our stay.

A lovely clean hotel where breakfast was superb. Stayed only for one night but would love to have stayed long. The beds were very comfortable and the room had all the facilities I needed. I also had a meal on the evening where the food was to a high standard, very well presented!

Can't wait to visit again!

Room Tip: Either 12 or 13 are nice and quiet towards the rear

Stayed here for one night in November, 2011. The rooms are fantastic and clean, and the food excellent. Would not hesitate to stay here again if in the area. The manager( Claire?), is the best, very kind and helpful, but then all the staff seem to have customer service as a high priority. Two thumbs up....

I stayed recently (May 2011) whilst biking in the area. My room was very nice: clean, good bed, bottled water and some nice details. The food is excellent as is the wine list and beers. Claire (sorry if Ive spelt your name wrong!) was front of house from breakfast to closing time and was an excellent host. Nothing was too much trouble and even asked what paper I would like to read over breakfast. Outstanding value and highly recommended. I'll will certainly be back.

We would have to travel a long way to find a pub like this with as much character and staff will do anything to help.

Made our business trip very enjoyable.

food is delicious.
