Stayed two nights recently, booked a single room but was given a double for no extra charge. Room at front of the hotel with secondary glazing to reduce any noise from the street. Comfortable bed, tea making facilities, TV and en suite bathroom with very good shower. A car park at rear which has a fairly narrow entrance so care...

Hadn't been here for many years but popped in for lunch and were delighted to find that the old place hadn't changed. Extremely well priced carvers with plentiful helpings. Warm and friendly welcome, prompt and attentive service in a lovely setting.

Had room 21 on top floor which was at rear of building so no road noise as mentioned in other reviews and had a good night's sleep. Paid £55 for the night including breakfast so...

Nice, pleasant old inn, with average sized rooms and big bathrooms. Cleanliness all around. Staff helpful and with a warm smile. Breakfast good. One has to order it, though - and this is right, so that there won't be any wastages. Internet however was quasi zilch in our room but ok at the restaurant. Parking very limited but we always...

Recently stayed here while attending a meeting in the town, decided to stay overnight due to meeting next day in Aberystwyth. Room was very nice, only slight drawback being exceptionally hot, unable to turn the heating down. Spent few hours in the bar in the evening which was ok , but bar staff a little surly. Breakfast next morning was...

Obviously the rooms have just been re decorated and bathrooms renovated all to a very good standard. Pillows rather hard though. Bathroom was very nice! Met by really friendly staff who took us to our room. Breakfast was good but service could be better. Two major faults...... fire doors wedged open in hallways and ALL my credit card details were...

I stayed at the Boars Head for two nights and was quite disappointed. It had its good points but a lot of bad points. For a start their website is misleading and needs updating. The website does not give very much information, and the prices advertised are incorrect. Because of this I paid more than expected. The place was disorganised...

This hotel is a little old fashioned but offers good value. My room cost £50 and at that price offered good value for money. Clean and comfortable. In fact the room was nicely furnished with a good sized double bed. The room was roadside and above a bus stop which created some extra noise (room 25). Breakfast acceptable. I've stayed...

Great old pub in the middle of Carmarthen. We used the pub as our base for day trips around Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. It was great having secure off street parking for the hire car that we could come and go easily. Staff were friendly and helpful - meals were great and breakfast was generous. Had a great time.
