Positive Reviews

Nice village setting, well-presented.

Guests found The Diplomat to be well-located in a peaceful village setting, which also proved convenient for Llanelli, while the rooms themselves were considered to offer lots of space, and were clean and nicely decorated.

Good staff and accommodating all round.

You will find the staff to be very helpful and accommodating, the hotel is friendly for those visiting with children or their furry companions, and the food is of a high standard with service to match.

Nice little spa facility.

Those who took advantage of the spa facility found the spa pool, steam room and Jacuzzi to be a welcome addition to their stay, not to mention the handy pool and gym.

Negative Reviews

Mattresses not for everyone.

While most guests who stayed at The Diplomat had no problems with the mattresses, a handful found issue with the feeling of springs or personal preferences of hardness.

Decor character and sometimes toasty.

Several guests found the decor to be a bit dated for their tastes, but most actually rather enjoyed the character of the building. A few also deemed the rooms to be too warm for their liking, but the windows seem to open fairly wide, so this does not seem
