We booked two days at the new white lion through mr and mrs smith having read the reviews. When we arrived we were greeted by the new owners kath and dave. This was a bit of a suprise and made us a little apprehensive at first as they had only taken over a week or so earlier but any worries were soon dispelled. We were offered tea straight away and this arrived with bara brith which was most welcome. Kath and dave are the perfect hosts, very helpful and friendly. We ate both night at the hotel and the food was excellent, dave,s a really good chef. Excellent choice at breakfast with some more unusual choices of hot food as well as the traditional welsh breakfast and a cold buffet. Our room was lovely, large and airy with a wet room. Bath robes are provided as well as tea, coffee, biscuits and bottled water. The lounge area of the hotel is very comfortable and tastefully decorated with an honesty bar which is well stocked. Kath and dave also provided nibbles to have with the pre diner drinks. Would definitely stay here again.
Llandovery is very pleasant and a good base to see the surrounding area.
