Best Western Diplomat Hotel & Spa
Ranked #6 of 10 Hotels in Llanelli
Reviewed August 24, 2009

I travelled with my 13 year old daughter, my friend and her 16 year old daughter. We had 2 twin rooms, both of which were large, clean and modern in decoration. The hotel staff, whilst at times seeming to be a bit stretched were always pleasant and helpful. The spa pool and area was certainly adequate for our needs, but probably not great for smaller children or toddlers. The gym was equally good for a few days stay. We were on a dinner, B&B package and the food was of very good quality - especially given the rate per person that we paid. Llanelli itself is not perhaps the most picturesque place, however, the hotel is very well placed to explore the South coast of Wales. I would most certainly return to this hotel and indeed would hope to do so some time soon.

This was the second time I had stayed at the Diplomat in LLanelli and again it was a pleasant experience. The hotel is easy to find being signposted off the main routes and has plenty of on site parking. Booking in was quick and easy and the reception staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are large, clean and well appointed and complimentary Internet (wired and WIFI) is provided as well as the usual tea/coffee facilities. The bar serves a good selection of ales, wines and spirits and the staff were friendly. The hotel serves bar meals and also has a more extensive restaurant menu-food was very good and again the staff were attentive and friendly. Breakfast was very good with a selection of fruits, cereals and yoghurts as well as the more traditional cooked options. There is a small pool, gym an sauna although I didn't have the time to make use of them so cannot comment further. Overall a very nice hotel with excellent staff-I can't wait until my next visit.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed here this year. On the last 2 occasions we were a group of 40somethings looking for a chilled out weekend in Wales. The staff are friendly in this family run hotel where the food & service is excellent. The rooms that we have stayed in, are impressive with lovely comfortable beds. The spa attached to the hotel is ok, not to the same standard as the hotel & is not exclusive to hotel users, but it's available, free of charge and pleasant. Free internet access is available to all residents. On this break, we used it as a base for a graduation ceremony at Swansea University- ideally located.
