“Warm welcome on a cold Easter”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

We had the Lilac room at the top of the house which has wonderful views of the waves but also the snow covered hills beyond. The room has a king size bed as well as a lilac leather sofa and chair so there is plenty of room to relax after a hard day beating the cold. Very warm welcome from Shirley and breakfast cooked as you eat cereal or fruit salad - wonderful !
Would recommend going to Aberystwyth or Machynlleth on the train as it is only 30 yards from Heulwen. The sea and beach are 100 yards the other way and all of Borth is an easy walk away.
All in all a really good stay in an outstanding B + B

Room Tip: If you are after a single room Shirley will do one of the twin or double rooms at a single price

A beautiful weekend of sunshine for you both, which was perfect for your family outings. But also so warm & inviting back in Heulwen B&B when the nights turned cold.

So nice to have those little chats at breakfast time with you both. Look forward to seeing you both again ;-]]

My Family and I stayed at Heulwen for a weekend, and were made to feel extremely welcome. The family room was perfect for us and our two little daughters - lots of toys and kiddies books. Very clean and fab breakfasts! Shirley and Francis were really welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable ... what more could you ask for? Thank you! :)

New years Eve in Borth.......and our room coulnd't have been better. I stay in hotels all over the world and believe me, this was as nice a room as I'v had that had everything really. Wonderful breakfast and even though we're Vegan, extra effort was made to make sure we were catered for. Very happy to have found Heulwen and this room in particular, and we're already palnning another break in wonderful Borth.....

Lovely rooms either with kids or romantic break. All needs catered for. If you love a quiet getaway by the sea then this is the place for you whatever time of year. Theres parking right outside the front door, or the train station is literally a few yards away if arriving by train( considering there is a train station near you never hear the trains) The owners are like going to visit family. There is a lovely calm atmosphere and nothing is too much trouble, they are friendly and are pleased to see you. The rooms are beautifully decorated and are immaculately clean with free WIFI throughout the house. There are little touches too with tea n coffee facilities and toiletries just in case you have forgotten anything from home. Although an evening meal is not provided the owners provide glasses and plates if you want to take food back. The breakfast is a full English with toast of your choice and an option for something a little more special, I had smoked salmon n eggs one morning. Theres a varieties of cerieals, fruit n yogurt to start and fresh orange juice. This really is everything and more you would expect from a 4 star B&B. It is a home from home with the little touches. We have found our special place here.

We've been using the Heulwen for a number of years, usually in the family room, as we take our daughter and her 2 children. The thing that struck me on our first visit, was how clean the guesthouse was. Also, no expense has been spared on the decor. I'm not a great breakfast eater normally, but I always make an exception at the Heulwen.

After a busy year at work, I've just treated my wife to a couple of days at Borth for a rest. Shirley and Francis were once again fantastic hosts.

I can recommend this guest house to anyone thinking of taking a break by the sea. You won't be disappointed.

A lovely place. We left the window open and could hear the sound of the sea as we drifted off to sleep. The pictures and ornaments created a serene, spiritual atmosphere. The hosts were so kind and nothing was too much trouble for them at all - it didn't feel like it was their business it was more like a calling or vocation. The room was comfortable and we loved the colour theme. The breakfast was delicious - and we enjoyed it after an early morning walk along the beach. It was a fantastic romantic break and we will be going back year after year.

We stayed for two weeks and were well taken care of. I loved the rail station with a short walk to a quaint church. The local pubs are friendly and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed the train trip up the coast.
Shirley and Francis are excellent hosts who go the extra mile to help out.
Lovely, clean and fantastic breakfast. We will definitely return :-)
