If you're looking for an attractive property to relax and unwind in, the Corran Hotel and Spa makes an excellent choice.
A modern vintage hotel - all staff are relatively young, which gives the place a trendy, unpretentious and thoroughly chilled out vibe. Levels of professionalism, however, are high, with all staff attentive and helpful.
The property has a subtly quirky feel, probably owing to Laugharne's artistic heritage. (Think Dylan Thomas quotes on the wall, Nick Drake on the sound-system, countless original antiques throughout the interiors, etc.)
The rooms are exceedingly spacious and attractively decorated. The bar is an enjoyable venue in which to enjoy a few pre-dinner drinks, and the hotel restaurant serves food of a very high standard. (The rack of Welsh lamb was truly one of the best meals I've had in years!)
Downsides: The overhead fan in our room wasn't working, which meant a few warm nights. (I'm sure had we flagged this, however, it would have been swiftly dealt with.) Mineral water in the gym might have added that nice five star touch, and there seemed to be quite a few bugs flying about. This was potentially due to the nearby marshland, and as well of course, the time of year.
With a little more attention to detail, the Corran Hotel and Spa could easily go from very good to exceptional. My partner and I had a fantastic time, and would not hesitate to return.
