Brown's Hotel in Laugharne - The #1 Boutique Hotel in West Wales

Brown’s Hotel, built in 1752, is an iconic literary address, the social hub of Laugharne, West Wales and the favourite watering hole of poet and writer Dylan Thomas, who famously left the bar’s phone number as his own. Our Laugharne accommodation offers luxurious rooms, the famous bar and our new Penderyn Restaurant.

Brown’s is a hotel of characters – the locals and staff are always up for a chat – and following in Dylan’s footsteps President Carter, Burton & Taylor, Peter O’Toole, Charles and Camilla, Mick Jagger, Pierce Brosnan, Cerys Matthews and many others have made their way up the three stone steps to the bar.


Each room has a personality of its own and no two rooms are alike. We take great care to create an incomparable visitor experience and each room has its own 1950s themed retro-styled furniture and tastefully designed colour scheme, which, together with our specially commissioned wall art showing lovingly re-created scenes from the post-war period, help to create a real 'Wow' factor.

Food & Drink

The Penderyn Restaurant has now opened and reflects the close relationship between the iconic hotel and the award-winning distillery in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons. The decor reflects the distillery colours, namely black and gold and the chef, David Fry-Thomas has conjured up a delightful menu with the focus on good local ingredients.
