the stadey park is well worth its 4 stars , i hadnt visited Llanelli for a lot of years and was half expecting the strady park to have deteriorated but, in keeping with its traditions it had modernised just enough to keep that beautifull country hotel feel. the rooms [spotless and quite modern] the food [ great and served by realy nice people] and the staff were without pomp and allways looking to help , we had dinner and breakfast in a lovely resteraunt with fantastic veiws over the gower and all in all we couldnt have been luckier than to rediscover this beautifull value for money hotel

Dear Treforoy,

Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I'm glad you feel the hotel has modernised enough without losing it's original charm you remember. I'm glad you found the staff and food to your liking also. The views are amazing on a clear day, hopefully we will get a few more of those as Winter passes.

We are glad you decided to revisit the hotel to see how it has improved over the years and we hope that you will come back and visit us again soon.

We can't praise the Stradey Park Hotel highly enough. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable, food in the bar and restaurant was excellent and the staff in every department were faultless and always smiling. Nothing seemed too much trouble and made our stay for a family wedding a very pleasurable experience.This was definitely the best overall experience we have enjoyed at an hotel, thankyou.

Just had an overnight stay at the Stradey. Great hotel. Bed rooms are spacious and modern. Breakfast - one of the best hotel breakfasts I have ever had. Staff were excellent, friendly and efficient. Try the roof terrace bar - wonderful views over the Bay towards the Mumbles.

I've stayed here many times on business and love it. Staff here are very friendly and helpful. Bedrooms are good but make sure you stay on the third floor as the quality of rooms here is superior. Public areas are good although there is nowhere to escape if there is a wedding. Bar and restaurant food is good quality and good choice of wine. I always look forward to returning!

I booked this hotel having found it via an Internet search, the price was reasonable for an overnight stay while passing through and it promised a good level of comfort, so I booked it. I called reception to finalise the booking and asked them to email me directions, which they did. Pity that the very first direction was WRONG! On exiting the motorway we were indicated to turn right and follow a number of instructions at various roundabouts. We never found these roundabouts and ended up in open countryside, after which we retraced our steps and by a mix of consulting our road map and asking for directions we discovered that the first instruction was wrong, we should have turned left! It took us the best part of 1 hour to find the hotel and we arrived tired and stressed. When we remonstrated with the receptionist, she smiled and said "Never mind, at least now you are here!". No apology, no offer of complimentary drink, nothing!

The room was not exactly to our taste, a bit too shiny and velvety, but reasonably comfortable and very clean.

The dinner at Samphires was dismal. The starter, leek and cheese terrine, was a solid block of cheese surrounded by a thin strip of undercooked leek and a scattering of pickles. We liked the pickles a lot more of the solid indigestible centrepiece, which we ate simply because it was late and we were starving after the long journey. The main course was a boring tiny piece of fish on boiled potatoes with a bit of melted cheese on top, swimming in a thin and tasteless tomato sauce (fancily named Coulis but please call a spade a spade, it was watery tomato sauce!). The pudding was a nondescript creme brûlée, not objectionable per se but not terribly interesting. The service was good and attentive, no complaints there.

We were pleasantly surprised in the morning, by excellent fresh food (smoked haddock with poached egg, laver bread) and a generous buffet. Very good and friendly service too.

Overall the good was more than the bad and this is why we rated it average, rather than poor. But we would never have dinner in the restaurant again.

Dear Caterina,

Thank you for leaving a review on Stradey Park Hotel. I'm very sorry to hear of your difficulty in finding the hotel and that your evening meal wasn't of the standard you would usually experience.

I'm glad that despite these setbacks that overall your stay was a positive one and that you found the service of a high standard and enjoyed your breakfast.

I hope you would consider staying at the hotel again if passing this way and giving the restaurant another go as the food is normally well received, I apologise that in your case it was disappointing.

Thank you for choosing Stradey Park Hotel, we hope to welcome you back in the future.

Kind Regards,

We stayed in the Stradey Park to celebrate our wedding anniversary and arrived to find a box of chocolates in the room and a congratulations message, which was a nice touch.
We booked a dinner bed and breakfast package which was amazing value for money. The food was lovely with a good menu choice.
The staff were friendly and provided excellent service. The hotel itself has 2 great bar areas and lots of little areas to sit in and relax.
We will definitely be back next year.

Hi Liz,

Firstly congratulations on your 10th wedding anniversary, we were delighted to welcome you back ten years after you had your wedding at the hotel, hopefully you will have noticed a lot of improvement in that time!

We are happy you felt the 'Weekend Getaway' package was such good value for money and that you enjoyed the food at the hotel.

Thanks for taking the time to review Stradey Park Hotel and we look forward to welcoming you back again next year.
