“Its all true. Really.”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Although we don't usually write reviews we do read them and have broken our habit as we wanted to reassure any readers that although previous reviews may give the impression that Glangwili is 'too good to be true', it really is that good! The location is the most peaceful we have ever stayed in (background noise here comprises the local buzzard calling as it flies over or the continual sound of redstarts singing), our room was high spec and the breakfast will fill you for a week. George and Linda really are the ultimate hosts - genuinely lovely people who want everything about your stay to be perfect. We stayed for 7 nights and found the location was also ideal for our 'wish list' itinerary of visiting locations in Carmarthen, Pembrokeshire, and Ceredigion. We visited Tenby; St Davids; Solva; Llanelli; New Quay (yes, we did see the dolphins :-) Llandeilo; Aberaeron and also National Trust properties at Llanachaeron and Dinefwr. All were in easy reach and it was even a pleasure to drive on the empty roads. We hope to return to the area in future and would not even consider staying anywhere other than Glangwili. A wonderful break from which we will have many lasting happy memories.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your fabulous review - we really appreciate your comments.
It's quite unusual for guests to stay for 7 nights but as you found out, Carmarthenshire is South Wales's best kept secret with no shortage of things to do - fabulous scenery, beautiful beaches, great restaurants and plenty of opportunity for shopping! A weekend is definitely not enough time to fit everything in!
We really hope that you have the opportunity to visit us again - it's not difficult to look after lovely guests. Best wishes Linda & George

I wasn't going to write a review as I can only reiterate all the previous comments double/triple fold, but that wouldn't be fair to Linda & George who deserve every accolade possible. We stayed at Glangwili Mansion overnight on 3rd June, it being our 2nd overnight stay at this wonderful place. When you step into Glangwili you find yourself in the most amazing contemporary surroundings worthy of being a millionaire's "pad"! You immediately feel you are in a very special place which has been restored with great love. We stayed in the Chartreuse suite the 1st time. which was simply luxurious with an enormous en suite bath. The 2nd time we stayed in the Garden suite which was perfect for my husband who now has mobility difficulties as it was on the ground floor. It was sumptuous and spacious with a fabulous wet room. It also had a private patio where we enjoyed welsh cakes and coffee on our arrival. Glangwili Mansion is set in the most spectacular, quiet location, which is very therapeutic & also is close to Brechfa Forest, Aberglasney Gardens & the National Botanic Gardens.It is an ideal base for people who like to walk or cycle. Linda & George are the most loveliest, empathetic couple you will find. They enjoy people immensely, they love their home and they care about their local community. After a most delectable breakfast, which catered for every possible taste, George invited us to feed the alpacas and Harris Hawks & this was such a highlight for my husband who adores animals. We left feeling like we'd had the most wonderful break feeling refreshed & rejuvenated and were saying goodbye to special friends. Since returning home I have been asked if I am on commission as I have recommended Glangwili Mansion to so many people and I would now like to recommend it to Trip Advisor readers as I would hate you to miss out on this very special place. We sincerely cannot wait to stay there again.

Room Tip: The 2 suites we have stayed in have been "awesome" and I have no doubt the other suites ar...

We enjoyed our short stay in Glangwili - a lovely house in a beautiful location, with warm welcoming hospitality from Linda and George. We are looking forward to going back. We stayed in the Garden Room and would highly recommend it.

This was our second stay at Glangwili and I am sure it won't be 3 years between visits next time around! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home. With a smile and a Welsh cake to help the afternoon coffee go down it was like returning home from a trip away. George and Linda are great hosts, friendly, warming and above all fascinating to talk to...from goalkeeper to zookeeper George's chequered history was mesmerising and his humour is not bad either! Linda's warmth and design expertise makes the mansion look homely and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble from advice on local places to eat to recommended places to view whilst in the West of Wales. The breakfast was stunning and the bedroom allowed for a comfortable and relaxing few nights sleep. They say 'West is Best'' but this has to be the 'Best in the West' !!!

We stayed at Glangwili Mansion for two nights as we wanted a central base in South Wales for a whirlwind mini sightseeing break. From the outset, we received a very warm welcome from George and Linda (the owners) ……. Along with much appreciated tea and Welsh cakes!

The guest accommodation was very well appointed and the bathroom was so much better than most Hotels we have stayed in.
The bed was incredibly comfortable and the pillows were squashy, so after watching a spot of TV at the end of the day we were out like a light.

The attention to detail with the décor, amenities and service were tremendous, as was the tranquillity of the location.

There was an excellent choice of breakfast available, with my personal favourite being the “Full Welsh”. This by the way filled me up for a straight 8 hours, I didn't need to eat all day, which was a bonus!

To summarise, I can say nothing more than to applaud George and Linda for what they have achieved at Glangwili Mansion. It is MUST if you are visiting Carmarthen or surrounding towns, but also need peace and quiet at the end of the busy day.

My husband and I stayed overnight and had a wonderful time. We arrived late and were warmly greeted by George who took us to our suite for the night, Champagne. Very roomy with a king size bed and plenty of room for a settee too. I became so relaxed that I soon fell asleep watching tv.
The following morning's breakfast was a feast - fresh fruit salad, the most delicious croissant ever and scrambled egg and bacon, and a delicious pot of hot coffee. We were set up for the day ahead.
Linda and George are fantastic hosts and an example of how a business of this kind should and can be run. Well done and I can't wait to find an excuse to come back to stay again with you.
