“Our Favorite B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

We stayed here in July 2011 and have looked forward to returning. The historic stone farm setting is idyllic, the accommodations are top-class, the breakfasts were excellent and the warm, friendly hospitality of Sarah and James is unsurpassed. They welcomed us like long-time friends and made our recent two-day visit feel special. Before our arrival James had booked us a reservation at Neuadd Fawr Arms so we would be guaranteed our dinner at another favorite.
We definitely will be returning again to our favorite B&B.

Thank you for such a kind review. It was a pleasure to see you both again and we enjoyed our chats over breakfast. We're also glad the Neuadd Fawr was as good as you remembered. If you should come back to Wales it would be great to see you both again.
Kind regards,
James and Sarah.

This has to be the most tranquil B & B I have ever stayed at. The rooms are absolutely spotless, very well appointed and very comfortable. James and Sarah are very friendly and are happy to point you in the right direction for places for activites or good pubs & restaurants.
The peace and quiet has to be experienced to be believed. There is a small lake a few hundred metres away surrounded by meadows and woodland, a perfect location for spotting wildlife.

I cannot praise Henllys enough, looking forward to next years stay already!

We stayed here for a couple of nights in July and it was perfect. We didn't know the area so selected this particular hotel based on Trip Advisor's reviews and not only were we not disappointed but we were exceptionally impressed. The rooms are accessed from a courtyard, they are decorated and furnished to a high standard and are extremely comfortable. The ensuite is clean and functional. The most outstanding feature of this B&B are the owners, they work hard and seem to genuinely care that you have an enjoyable and comfortable stay. They get the balance just right between being friendly and available but not overpowering and intrusive. During our stay we visited Tenby & Saundersfoot, 1hr away, and the following day went to Aberystwyth again 1 hour away. There are several eateries in Llandovery and nearby villages, but I would suggest you need a car.

Room Tip: Don't worry, there are no bad rooms.

It was a pleasure meeting you both and we are very grateful for your kind comments. We think the rooms with their own 'front doors' work well for our guests and the courtyard is a lovely place to sit in a summers evening. Thank you. Kind regards, James and Sarah

On our trip through Wales we found this beautiful place and stayed there for a couple of nights. The friendly and lovely hosts, James and Sarah, made our time perfect.
Cozy rooms, quiet atmosphere in a marvellous landscape. Ideal spot to relax.

We have had the pleasure of staying at Henllys for the past five years, spring and summer. We have always enjoyed the warm welcome provided by James and Sarah, the clean comfortable rooms and the breakfasts. The Estate is beautifully situated and provides an interesting walk around the lake and woodland. This part of Mid-Wales is a wonderful area for spending time walking and birdwatching, close to the Dinas RSPB Reserve and the Llyn Brianne Reservoir.

Thank you David and Daphne for your review. It has been a pleasure having you both stay for the last five years. You are always very easy to look after and always have the answer to any questions we might have about the bird life on the estate. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you next year.

A lovely B & B in a lovely location. Comfortable, beautifully decorated and well appointed rooms, a friendly welcome and a breakfast that sets you up for the day! Superb food - excellent local sausages and bacon, plus a good selection of cereal etc. Great for a stop-over or a longer stay. James and Sarah are delightful hosts and their home is a wonderful place to be.

Room Tip: No need - all the rooms are excellent.

Would highly recommend staying here we spent 3 nights for our anervesery room was very good clean and tidy and to a high standard could do with bigger tv but i'm being very picky, great to have your own door to come and go when u want.
Breakfast 1st class and nothing to much trouble.

Thank you for your kind comments. We like the fact that each room has it's own front door so you don't have to worry about disturbing other people as well. We feel guests are more relaxed and we are too.
If you do come back to the area, we would be very pleased to see you again.
Kind Regards,
