We stayed here for one night and, like many others, did so as because of the Groupon deal. There were four of us in total and the hotel kindly arranged for us to have adjoining rooms.
Check-in was a bit strange - we were asked if we'd like to 'opt out' of dinner, despite it being part of the package, and it felt as though the receptionist was encouraging us to eat elsewhere. We later found out that they had an event on that evening with 150+ covers and hotel guests were being warned that there would be up to 40 minute delays between courses...so that kind of explained it!
When we arrived in our room, we were very pleasantly surprised. The room had recently been refurbished, was nicely decorated and was immaculately clean.
Dinner was served in Trubshaws Restaurant which, like all public areas in the hotel, was a little dated and had a definite 1970s feel! The food was very good, however, the portions were fairly small. The desserts, which are not part of the package, were incredibly expensive - we paid £5.95 for the tiniest fruit salad with half a scoop of ice-cream. Overall, the service was good (some waitresses were just OK, while others were superb) and we certainly didn't experience the delays were were warned about at the start of the meal.
After a great night's sleep, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast and were delighted with the variety on offer.
All in all, we found this to be a great little overnight stay and a bargain at just over £30 per person. We'd recommend that you combine it with trips to some of the smaller local towns, such as Llandeilo and Llandovery, where you'll find a number of lovely gift shops, cafes and pubs.
