This is a good hotel with friendly staff and an absolutely terrific breakfast. We've stayed here a couple of times and on both occasions the rooms have been good, with a flat screen TV and tea and coffee making facilities. The bar does a reasonable range of ales and has decent bar food.
If you are staying in Llanelli then this or the Diplomat in Felinfoel are your best options.
However, both these hotels are big on wedding receptions. This shouldn't be a problem but always seems to be. We stayed at the Stradey for two nights - a Saturday and a Sunday - and they had a wedding reception both nights. The Saturday night one was the worst as not only was there noise until 1.00 am, but our room was next to the room where a couple of the bridesmaids were staying. They were quite young and excitable and noisy, but what can you say when this is their big day? Although my patience was wearing thin when someone banged on our door at 3.00.a.m.
The reception the next night wasn't as loud or late, but was pretty chavvy. it did amuse me as we parked our car to see some wedding guests nipping back to their car to pour themselves some vodka they had secreted in their car boot rather than pay hotel prices!
So, a plea to all UK hotel managers. If you are having a wedding reception is it possible to put wedding and non-wedding guests in different parts of the hotel, with non-wedding guests in rooms that don't face the wedding venue where the disco is playing? If that isn't possible, could you warn customers that there will be a wedding reception?
