“perfect stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

We stopped overnight at this hotel and booked the raceday package for fos las.
Great value for money. The hotel was stunning the staff friendly and the service second to none.

Had a 3 course meal in the samphires restaurant on the saturday evening. This was one of the best meals we've ever had and very reasonably priced.
The room was spacious and comfortable with nice little touches such as the bathroom amenities and bottles of water.
We were in room 14 and the corridor was clearly being refurbished but there were signs up apologizing for this. This had no impact on our stay what so ever.

There was a wedding on in the hotel and the facilities looked amazing with all the lighting and chandeliers. We did not hear any noise in our room and the hotel is plenty big enough to not feel like you are imposing.

We will certainly be returning

Dear Nicola,

Thank you for your kind words about the hotel. Our Race & Stay package is great value for money, I'm glad you took advantage of that offer. I will pass on your praise to the chefs as well.

I'm glad the wedding and the refurbishing of the corridor didn't have a negative impact on your stay. We hope to welcome you back in the future.

Kind Regards,
Staff & Management,
Stradey Park Hotel

We held our daughters wedding in the hotel and what a pleasure it was . From the time we arrived on the friday until we left on the sunday nothing was to much trouble . Reception staff were great and so helpful and as were the rest of the staff . The wedding day was exceptional ,Mark the wedding co-ordinator and his team were great from the day the wedding was booked to the time we left . The wedding breakfast was outstanding and the service was second to none, evening buffet was also excelnt . Rooms were large with plenty of space to move around and to put clothes away. We had food in the restaurant on the friday night this too was very good as too was the morning breakfast . We would recommend this hotel for any function or short break and we will definitely be going back again . Thanks again to everyone who made our daughter's wedding day very special and a memorable one .

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter if there is a function on going .

We chose this hotel as a last minute break and were so glad we did. The service in the hotel was great and the food was some of the best we have had in hotels in the UK - some startling combinations and beautifully cooked. Breakfasts were a little more ordinary - self-service, but plenty of choice, however fussy you might be.
The views from the terrace over to the Gower were lovely and we visited Oxwich Bay and the Mumbles - both to be recommended and you must fit in a trip to Joe's Ice Cream Parlour in the Mumbles.
One thing to be aware of - the hotel holds quite a few wedding receptions and on the Friday evening we were there, a Charity Dinner, which makes parking a bit tricky, since the car park is not massive.
On the good side, we had booked a table for 8;00 on the Friday, but the Bank Holiday traffic and an accident on the road ahead of us, meant that we were going to be late: one phone call and they were quite happy to put the reservation back until we arrived.

Beautiful stay, and exceptional customer service! The staff went out of their way to assist us and answer questions. We stayed in a family room, and were pleasantly surprised with it's size and comfort. The restaurant was wonderful, and their breakfast buffet was very good. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and have recommended it to friends!

Room Tip: We were given a quote online, but called the hotel to make reservations, we received an even better...

Room was nice with without doubt one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. It was clean apart from a spiders web but that's being too critical. The shower was immense. My only complaint about the room was the toilet seat itself, it was too close to the wall which meant you had to, er, sit at an angle which pinched the sausage. Dinner was ok, but it's the same menu every night so an extended stay would be hell. Breakfast was fantastic though, I miss the bacon already - you can keep the laverbread though. Location wise, Llanelli itself didn't seem to have anything going for it but we didn't come here to visit Llanelli - it was a fine place to stay to use as a springboard for going elsewhere. You absolutely must visit Rhossili bay and the Worms Head on the Gower peninsula. I would stay here again happily.

Dear Kirkintilloch,

I'm delighted to hear how comfortable you found the bed. Sorry about the 'sausage pinching', which leads me neatly onto breakfast - which I'm glad you enjoyed so much!

Our menu changes seasonally in the restaurant, we also have the bar menu and whatever is on the specials board, so there should be a bit of variety - even for an extended stay.

A lot of our guests use the hotel as a base to explore the Gower, Carmarthenshire has much to see and do also.

Thank you for your kind review. We hope you will come back and visit us again soon.

Kind Regards,
Staff & Management,

Room decor was tasteful and everything was clean. Impressed by huge bed. There was a party going on but staff assured me I'd have a quiet room, which I did. Eight hours of uninterrupted sleep, bliss. Breakfast was very good, with great views over Llanelli towards the Gower. All in all, would very much recommend.

Booked through what I thought was their website which stated £83. However, when going on to pay on line the site added an additional £14 in taxes and surcharges, so £98!.

The Georgian Mansion is a very small part of the hotel as the majority of rooms were in a 3 storey extension which looked like it was built in the 70's, very comprehensive school look.

Check in fine, there was a wedding so we asked for a quiet room, which we got on the 2nd floor. The only lift was Out of Order. First room had a hair on the pillow and had a generally dirty feel to it, ask for our money back so we could find somewhere else worth £100, but told as we had booked through Expedia we couldn't. Change room to the 3rd floor and that was better but still felt tired.

Room was quiet and no noise from the wedding party, bed was very hard and gave my wife a back ache by morning. Breakfast was fine, staff were friendly and helpful.

All in all this hotel could be worth its 4 star rating if it had a complete refurb. carpets, walls, paint work etc all need replacing. There cant be many 4 star hotels with 1 Out of Order lift!

sorry we will not be coming back

Dear Chris,

It's disappointing to hear you paid extra using a booking engine, it's always cheaper to book directly with the hotel. When booking make sure the web address is the hotel's name and not Expedia then the hotel's name. Our hotel has our branding on it and not Expedia's.

Apologies for the lift being out of order Chris, this was a temporary fault. As I'm sure you're aware all technology is subject to faults at times, all we can do is get it fixed as quickly as possible. I'm sorry for the inconvenience this caused you.

Thanks for leaving a review on the hotel.

Kind Regards,
Staff & Management,
