I have recently returned from a visit to Llanelli in Carmarthenshire, South Wales and can recommend the Best Western Diplomat Hotel where I stayed on my first evening. The hotel has a very warm and welcoming atmosphere when you walk in. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I dined in the restaurant and found the food to be...

This is a Best Western Hotel in a Welsh town. If you are over critical it will ruin your experience but if you go with the flow and let the staff (who are lovely) look after you all will be well with the world. This is our second (family) trip and it ticks all the boxes for us, in terms...

Stayed at this Hotel for 3 nights while visiting the area and catching up with some friends. The location is OK 10 minute walk to the town... however the town realy isn't worth a visit. The Hotel was very quiet, which was ok as it meant that it was very peaceful at night and therefore you get a good night's...

Ordered cod and chips in the bar. Delivered to the table in good time. Courteous and friendly bar staff. Well presented food, tasty cod, dressed salad and proper home style chips. Lots of choice on the menu and a well stocked bar, with a great selection of local ales, lagers, cider and other beverages. Very pleased with the visit.

Great that we were able to stay with our dog. Hotel was super and all the staff were wonderful, including the owner. We stayed in the separate Coach House because we had the dog with us. Quiet and restful room. Plenty of parking. Will definitely stay again in the future.

The hotel is a brisk walk from Llanelli town centre and for our purposes was well situated for us to get into Swansea. We had a spacious double room which was clean and comfortable. Didn't like the shower though it was weak and not adjustable but overall the bathroom was also bigger than normal. Although we didn't use the facilities...

I purchased this on a Groupon deal on a whim to see what it would be like. We stayed for 2 nights and with dinner on the first night with spa access. I paid an extra £20 a night for a superior room which was extremely worth it as the room was very spacious with a sofa and large bathroom....

Planned a baby shower here on a Sunday afternoon in February. Had a suite to ourselves which was lovely. Food was lovely, plentiful and very well priced. Staff were fantastic and facilities excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed for one night on business. Reception was unmanned but re-directed to the bar to check-in. Room was fine and bed comfortable. Service and food in the restaurant were both good. Breakfast was promptly served and equally good. Morning check-out was efficient, friendly and not to painful on the pocket.
