Appalling place really. Stayed here for a wedding in October, and it was really really bad. I was by myself and asked for a double. They downgraded me to a single without asking, then had no doubles for me to go to. The bed was a camp bed, with one of the four legs shorter than the others which led to an unusal sleep. The room was tired, and obviously hadn't been touched for decades. Breakfast was okay though.
But it was soooo expensive for the price. I've recently stayed at a 4* in Oxford Street in London for our Christmas for less money. I'd recommend you stay anywhere else at all rather than this place, but there's nowhere else in Carmathen to go. If I was going again I think I'd prefer to sleep in the gutter rather than here again.
