Booked in to this ( for us) unknown tavern and little known town. We were pleasantly surprised. Arrived at 7.30pm to a warm welcome, but told the kitchen would close at 8pm.
Had a delicious dinner, served by very convivial staff. There was a table of Germans near us, getting lessons in how to pronounce "Llanelli". Rooms were quiet, considering we were on a busy road, right in the centre of town. Nice to have a bath, not just a shower.
After a hearty Welsh breakfast and lashings of Welsh Brew tea and Welsh yoghurt, we ambled the 200 metres to 'Llanelli House', made famous by a BBC documentary on its restoration. En route, we were taken by the numerous interesting Georgian and Victorian buildings, and church in the centre of Llanelli.
All in all, a delightful stay in a town that is slowly reinventing itself.
