My friend and I were embarking on a charity Walkathon and so needed a place close to the bay. Oh dear, what a shock on arrival. There were a group of men sitting on the wall at the entrance, smoking and drinking cans of something (we thought we'd come to the wrong place!). When the front door was opened, the owner appeared somewhat unkempt with his shirt hanging our of his trousers! He did not seem very interested in our arrival as guests.
Our room was not very inviting. The decor was tired and seemed like a lick of paint was in need. But most off-putting was the toilet: it had NOT been cleaned properly. Horrible vision. The shower felt unclean and was minute in size. The whole room felt like it wasn't very clean. The beds however were fine.
Breakfast was beyond a joke. We are both vegetarians and there was very little offered that appealed to me. There was NO brown bread even. There was no herb tea - the packet was on the shelf, but it was empty!
On talking to Andrew, the manager I quickly realised that Llanelli is struggling economically with the recession hitting hard (few jobs about) and it seems everybody in the town are very depressed and find life a real struggle. I felt sorry for him when we left the place.
