Wifi signal was a little weak in places within the room.
there was nothing at all to disappoint during our stay
friendliness & healpfullness of the staff.
WiFi kept logging me out
Staff very friendly. Room good size and comfortable bed. Nice bar area; dined twice and food excellent. Breakfasts excellent. Central for town. Price for standard room very reasonable.
Inexperienced bar staff - glass with single whisky topped to the brim with water. Had a second to show how it should be done! Poor bed making and dirty plug holes in the bath and wash-hand basin - the latter cracked. Didn't spoil a good stay but doing those little things well would surely raise the stars this hotel holds.
Friendly staff. Beautiful stained glass window,
Not easy to locate hotel out of daylight hours.
Probably the best hotel in Carmarthen, decent parking and rooms and bar comfertable.
Free wifi did not work on most recent visit, breakfast could be better.
Initial reception was OK but staff inside virtually ignored us when we were looking for dinner service or drink service.
relaxing, good food and location.
Problem with thermostat I think, very warm in bar, dining room etc.
Centre town location Large car park Good food Have stayed before and will do so again
Not much to dislike
Clean comfortable hotel with friendly staff and convenient large car park
Location in town excellent. Staff pleasant and helpful. Breakfast good.
Soundproofing in my room poor. Radiator heating inadequate (room cold despite 2 radiators). Mould in shower.
The room was comfortable and warm. Parking was excellent. Ideal for walking into the town. Our stay was for a wedding and The Ivy Bush Hotel was in an ideal situation. Staff very helpful at all times.
The time I left the hotel to go home.
Very loud noises from central heating and plumbing which kept me await all night. I was not made to feel welcome as a guest by the hotel staff. Bathroom was not clean. Lighting in room was very dim as 2 light bulbs were broken.no Internet connection in room.
Friendly, good breakfast, clean and comfy beds, good receptionists . Absolutely ace about our dog.Tried everywhere in Carmarthen to take dog but no luck anywhere else( not a pub,B&B, anywhere). Being from C., the last thing I thought was that the Bush would take us - but they did.Thank you so much - took the pressure off us with a death in the family and elderly parents needing support. Good deal too- we will be back, if you'll have us! Delighted you have the 'niche' USP in the market.
Bit of noise from heating boiler I think next to our room but to be fair we did not complain ( we are used to fan all night at home) but nothing that worried us too much.
Beautiful hotel,very clean,bed to die for nearly 7foot wide, staff very friendly food was lovely and plenty of it,loads of onsite parking, well definitely use again best hotel we've used in a while if not the best .You will really enjoy your stay at this place
Good location. Warm and friendly. Nice sitting areas.
Nothing to complain about.
Staff were nice and helpful
The smell through out was not pleasant, the bed was so bad, lumpy, and seemed it had been slept on for years . Stains on the bedding and pillows. Uneven floors and irregular step heights. Rooms were cold despite rads on full and bathroom was in poor repair with the grout stained and mouldy.
Everything would go again
the bed rooms were too hot
Great room, clean, smart and comfy. Breakfast was okay but patchy service.
Service in the bar - for food was poor. I had to instigate my order for a drink, a menu, food, condiments etc. The lasagne was awful - dry, crusty and no hint of garlic or even herbs. Chips seemed to be from frozen - like cardboard to eat. So fed up of waiting for a desert menu, over 15mins after I had asked - that I left. No it wasn't busy - only two other sets of diners.
Facilities are excellent and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Food is good and Hotel is within a great shopping facility. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and go there every November for Christmas shopping and some R&R.
Luckily my husband was in the bathroom having just got out of the shower when the key card went and in burst a maid/cleaner checking on whether she had left biscuits! Thank goodness he was still in the bathroom and not in the bedroom area, could have been rather embarrassing for all concerned. Staff she knock loud first and if no reply then let themselves in, not just burst in with their key card.
The breakfast and staff
The bathroom shower curtain dirty in need of re grouting by the bath tap and the seal needed some attention. No early morning call as we requested on check in.
Staff very welcoming and friendly. Room was massive with its own coffee machine!! Overall, brilliant hotel.
Matters was not comfortable could not sleep I think you have a look mattresses please
Free upgrade to a suite, free amazing breakfast and staff very helpful!
