“Fantastic welcome and good food”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We stayed as a group in late January this year. We were looked after very well by all staff and Andy the manager. After a good nights sleep had a delicious breakfast enjoyed by all at a reasonable price. Great atmosphere, friendly and thorough staff.

Myself, my wife and our three year old Border Collie have just stayed at the Kings Head Llandovery .21st March to 23rd March.
Wow a truly fantastic Hotel, the manager especially had a great response to any question "yes no problem" and the excellent staff followed his lead, the food was good, varied and reasonably priced,the room was to a very good standard and nice and clean.My son who lives locally and his extended family came to visit and have a couple of meals with us they were equally well catered for,all six children ! the waitress treated them all very pleasantly and further enhanced our stay.In summary we can 100% recommend this hotel they try very hard to please and satisfy their guests and they are succeeding.
We will return.

We ate here on 15th February the food is totally amazing, the service was fantastic we felt like we were at a friends house having some food. My husband had the Ribeye steak and said it was the best he ever had!!! I had the Welsh rarebit which was fantastic and lasagne which was again probably the nicest one I've ever had. Excellent, Amazing and Fabulous.

We have visited the Kings Head Hotel a few times and each time it has been excellent. This last time we got there on a Sunday lunchtime and fully expected not to be able to get in for a meal - the manager was charming and found us a table for two where we had a fabulous lunch (the best beef I have had for a very long time!) and it was great. Couldn't be faulted.

Had lovely Sunday lunch with family party. Great food at fantastic prices. The menu was varied but we opted for Sunday lunch deal which at £5 per head for a main course was really excellent value. Meals were beautifully presented by really helpful and considerate staff. Thank you for making our day so relaxing.
