About the Best Western Diplomat Hotel

The BEST WESTERN Diplomat Hotel offers character and convenience located in Llanelli, South Wales. Nestled in the peaceful village of Felinfoel, this 18th Century building is now a charming hotel that combines excellent service with good food and comfortable rooms to create the perfect getaway.

The relaxed and friendly atmosphere at this delightful hotel makes for a truly memorable stay. Our pleasant grounds, leisure suite and spa give you even more opportunity to escape the stresses and strains of everyday life!

An independent family run hotel, the Diplomat enjoys an excellent reputation for high standards of accommodation and cuisine, combined with helpful and friendly service.

The hotel has 50 luxury bedrooms, 2 restaurants and several function suites. It has recently been restored and refurbished, and is considered to be one of West Wales' finest hotels.

Brian Trubshaw, the first Concorde Test Pilot, was an extremely important contributor to the success of the Anglo-French airliner. This is recorded in a picture of his visit to The Diplomat Hotel, formerly the family home, and now a hotel of considerable luxury, contributing, not only to the local community, but to tourism on an international level.
