Excellent, reasonably priced Hotel, highly recommend. Clean and comfortable with great breakfast. Very friendly and attentive staff. Chickened out of the hotel rear car park manoeuvre (having just had car door repaired!) but hassle free parking nearby. Great

Just back from staying 4 nights at this hotel.On arrival we were met by a very friendly and helpful lady on reception, she explained about the car parking and we decided to park in the council car park just around the corner as we have a bigger car and didn’t want to try and park in their car park. The rooms are lovely and big and are spotlessly clean as is the whole hotel, decor is very tastefully done. Breakfast was very nice, plenty of choice and excellent quality. All the staff were very friendly and helpful.Will definitely be returning and would highly recommend , thank you Spilman hotel for such a lovely stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here this week and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Carmarthen. On site parking is available at their private car park at the rear. The decor throughout the hotel is of a high quality and cleanliness is impecable. Our "standard room" and the en-suite bathroom were both very big. There was also a fridge in the room along with lots of complimentary tea, coffee and milk. An iron and ironing board were also available. There's a good size well stocked bar and residents lounge available for guests. The tables in the breakfast room were socially distanced and the servers/staff wore masks. This created a safe feeling for all. The breakfast included cereals, yogurts, fruit juices, full cooked breakfast, toast, preserves, tea and coffee and all ingedients were of good quality. Overall, I would not hesitate in recommending this great little hotel to anyone.
