This is a 3 star hotel and as such it was pretty good value for money. Breakfast is excellent and the breakfast staff were very polite and helpful - no waiting for coffee! However, the main attraction that the hotel has is the wonderful view over Cardigan Bay. There can't be many better in all of Wales. We paid up...

Booked here for Mum's 81st birthday lunch. We were four in the party. Were shown to our table by a very helpful waitress and directed to a window seat. Beautiful views. Extensive menu and with a fussy 81 year old it made choosing something to eat very easy. Food arrived beautifully presented and very very tasty. Will definitely go back....

Really lovely traditional Sunday lunch. Waiting staff very attentive at the beginning but service a bit patchy after main courses and had to wait a fair time for more drinks. However, a beautiful setting on a near perfect spring day. The setting is to die for with beautiful views and lovely gardens and outside seating. Would really recommend if you...

Room 131 has very limited WiFi access and air con units outside window sounds like your on a airplane. Room is nice though but as a business traveler I expect good WiFi. 1MBPS is rubbish and mobile coverage is non existent here also.

Thank you very much for your comments regarding your recent stay. In light of recent guest feedback, we have today had an additional router fitted to improve the WiFi coverage in room 131 and are are confident that this will solve the problem you encountered. Due to our remote location, we do not benefit from a particularly fast internet connection,...
