Slept like a dream in clean & comfortable surroundings. Very welcoming staff. Would most definately stay here again. Breakfast cooked to order which is far superior to buffet breakfasts. Catmarthen is a beautiful little town on the entrance to Pembrokeshire. Well worth a visit

We ate here on two nights and the food was well cooked and presented with good portions and again comforting!! The rooms are slightly small but clean and have been recently refurbished. We found them comfortable for our short stay. The...

Terribly uncomfortable bed which denied me the rest which is the purpose of booking this hotel. We were unable to open the window due to the repulsive smells from the kitchen drifting in and the room was far too warm and stuffy and our heating was not able to be controlled except the towel rail in the bathroom which we...

I needed somewhere to stay while my partner was in hospital in Carmarthen and was very comfortable in The Falcon. My room was cosy and clean with supplies of tea, coffee and biscuits and the breakfasts were lovely. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and I thank them for making a difficult time much easier.

Visited here recently and had a warm welcome, with nothing being too much trouble. Delicious meal in the restaurant and comfortable nights stay. Worth the money in this central location. The breakfast was extremely tasty too.

I was booked into this hotel by my employer. It was in a convenient location in Carmarthen about a 5 minute walk from the Railway Station, over the river footbridge. Hotel convenient for town centre. The service from staff was friendly and excellent. The room was in a really good condition. I would say it has probably been refurbished relatively...
