“Great hotel and location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

Excellent pub, restaurant and rooms. Very comfortable and very helpful, informative staff. Gave us maps and told us the most scenic route to the beach. Good food and great real ale, particularly the SA.

Simply 5 STAR! Pub & rooms spotlessly clean, lovely decor, rooms very comfortable. STAFF outstanding, helpful before we arrived and during our stay. FOOD superb, 10 of us staying 2 nights, both nights we ate at the pub and the silence during eating said it all!! We will be going back for New Year and we would definitely recommend staying here

Room Tip: We had 5 rooms between our party all were lovely

We have just returned from a weekend away at this lovely hotel with a group of 10 friends, spotlessly clean, super food & excellent service from all staff, we enjoyed the facilities laid on to watch the final games of the six nations on a large screen & the free curry,rice & chips at half time went down a treat!
The hotel is around 15 minutes from the Pembrey Country Park, a must visit with acres of countryside, dry ski slopes, bike hire & miles of sandy beach to enjoy.
We are all looking forward to our return visit for the New Years Eve celebrations. Many thanks to all staff at the Hotel for making our stay so enjoyable.

Just spent a great weekend here with friends. Watched the last matches of the six nations in the beautiful function room. Great day all round. Friday evening had a lovely meal in the restaurant. Staff were all brilliant and couldn't do enough for us. Hoping to go now for our New Years Eve get together, can't wait! Well done to all the staff, friendly and excellent service, Diolch yn Fawr!

We were delighted with our stay here which started only as the nearest available hotel to Parc y Scarlets, the rugby venue.
The staff was so welcoming and natural - not just fawning to get customers - and could not do enough to make our stay comfortable. We had a lunch there which was well prepared, varied and delicious and were served breakfast the following morning promptly, in fact before time, in order to catch our plane back to Ireland from Cardiff.
A local lady came to our rescue by giving us a lift to the rugby ground when we couldn't get a taxi in time - not many places left where that kind of trust and genuine kind-heartedness exists.
It really made us feel that we would look for an excuse to go there again.

Room Tip: book early!
