My wife and I (who are from the U.S.) had a lovely two-night stay in the Drovers. The hosts, Jill and Mike, were incredibly warm and welcoming, the room comfortable, and the breakfasts delicious. Llandovery is a pleasant market town and makes an excellent base for exploring south-central Wales.

Stayed in The Drovers for one night. Room and shower in good shape and decor was tasteful - also warm which was important for November. All the nick-nacks (extra towels/bits and bobs) that you would expect from an upmarket hotel. Nice reception area. Breakfast was a good choice of menu and what I had was yummy. Small car park at the back.

We were just passing through, and spent only one night, but found The Drovers B&B to more than meet our needs & expectations.
The house feels like a large, traditional inn-style B&B, in which the owners have managed to combine old-world with contemporary in a very pleasing way. The ensuite bedrooms are very modern & comfortable,with free wifi available.
There is secure off-street parking, an English Tea upon arrival, and a full English breakfast in the morning.
The owners are very accommodating, and seem like "fun". They were very willing to offer advice regarding restaurants & local attractions.
We did not do much sight-seeing while here, thus can not comment on what the area has to offer, except to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the nearby Aberglasney Gardens .

Wonderful, welcoming B & B. Very homely but without the chintz. Decor in the bedrooms classy and comforting and the beds divine. Gorgeous bathroom with big bath and separate power shower. Quiet too which always gets a big gold star from me. Yummy breakfast with bacon that tasted like it had just come straight from the farm. Very high standard. Gets 10/10 from the fussy one (and that takes some doing!).

We ended up at the Drovers when another establishment double booked us. We were made very welcome and parked our over large car in the back yard easily. A pot of tea and Welsh cakes were then produced and we chatted with other guests some of whom were returning for a third stay. The lounge areas had a lovely relaxed atmosphere. We were very pleased with the room. The quality of the bed linen was excellent, decor very pleasant and a really first class shower. We ate out at the owners recomendation at the Castle which we felt was very good value. The owners too were eating there that evening. The breakfast next morning was excellent with good quality food nicely presented. If we stay in the area again we will always first check the availablity at The Drovers
