“Golfers have great stay in Borth”

4 golfers had another memorable stay at Windsor House in Borth. Played at Royal St Davids and caught the train from Machynlleth to Harlech, Aberdovey and Borth & Ynyslas. Viewed the Osprey's nest from the train beats Nature Watch too!!
Had 2 evening meals at the Victoria Inn where service was good and meals excellent. Stopped in at the Friendship and the party was warmly greeted by Mike Pugh.
Windsor house served us well and when we reported a leaking ceiling from a bath the plumber had sorted out the problem within an hour. If only you could get this service elsewhere? Will stay again provide4d the film crew are not in town!!

“WOW”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Very comfortable and luxurious with fantastic views. Positioned right on the beach, our young kids had an amazing time playing directly in front of the house. We had a wonderful break and the little ones are already asking when they can go back. The terraces were great too and we spent much of our time on the deck or on the elevated terraces which had amazing views over the bay. The house is also really close to local shops and there is a pub a stone's throw away that serves great food so you can sit on the deck overlooking the beach and watch the kids play.

“Perfect week away!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed at Windsor house a few weeks ago and already I wish I was back there, the house is beautiful and couldn't have been better and being right on the beach was amazing as we could sit out and watch the dolphins in the morning and just watch the world go by.

The artwork could keep you entertained for hours at Windsor house, it is all stunning and has something for everyone.

I have never been to Borth before but I will definitely be back and would highly recommended it to anyone.

Aberystwyth is just down the road and has lots to see and do for all ages, also there is Aberaeron which is bit of a drive but well worth a visit.

Overall i couldn't have wished for a better holiday for myself, family and friends.

“Beautiful home, stunning views!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I was with a group of 6 adults and 1 child. The house was perfect, plenty of room, super comfy beds and great views.
I would often sit alone in silence in the first floor living room watching the sea, lovely and peaceful.
We had a great BBQ outside watching the sun set. Even spotted a few dolphins on a calm morning. Had a meal in the Victoria which was ok, service was a little slow but friendly staff. Oriel cafe across the road is great, every morning the little one went for icecream they told us they would be shut on Thursday so if she wanted icecream on the Thursday morning we could pop over Wednesday night for some and freeze it. That's what I call service. Big Morrisons in Aber for all the essential but he local shops are pretty good. Had a nice day in Aberaeron crab fishing. Had an afternoon at Silver Mountain for the little one which was only around 20 mins away.
The wifi is great. Even better than home.


Fab stay and will defiantly be back again!!!!

“Great stay”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The house is great and offered everything our group needed. The location is amazing, right on the beach. The weather wasn't great while we visited but it didn't bother us at all. The Windsor House is so cosy we were all happy to just stay in and enjoy the views from the living room. All rooms are really nice and the top room is just amazing and had beautiful sea view. We also enjoyed the art in the house.
Simon is a truly great host, always happy to advise and provide any information about the house or local attractions, activities and things to do.

“Our ideal holiday home - both house and location”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Another fantastic stay at Windsor House. Since staying 2 years ago, the owners have done significant work, to what was already a wonderful house. To have a holiday home where the kids can run in and out to the beach without a care is wonderful. The beach itself changes dramatically with the tide, lending itself to lots of different activities with the kids. The local cafes and shops around the house make it easy to spend days at the house without having to get in a car, which is wonderful when relaxation is your primary aim. And when you do fancy a day trip, there are lots of lovely places to visit close by, We hope to return again and again as the kids grow up - a lovely place to spend some quality time together as a family.

“Wonderful retreat”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The house is great and has all the facilities you could want. It would be a fairly ordinary place if it weren't for the views and the amazing attic room with its wonderful freestanding bath and seagulls flying past. Being able to step right out onto the beach from the back garden was great. We were also right near the submerged forest, which was what we had come to Borth to see.
The 'controversial' art that people have mentioned is art of naked women. Some if it was pretty objectifying. The print of a painting by Rolf Harris of a naked woman was particularly distateful, seeing as he's currently awaiting trial for child sexual abuse. And there were some sexist seaside postcards (would these have been on display if they were racist postcards?).
The shower on the 3rd(?) floor didn't work that well as it was hard not to get water everywhere.
All in all I would definitely recommend this place. Just get rid of some of the pictures! :)

Management Response
10 Apr 2014
You are so correct, we shall remove the Rolf Harris paintings today! The remainder of the paintings and cards are mainly by local artists, neighbours or gifts. Sorry if you were offended.

Second floor shower will be fixed this week, it does seem to have a mind of its own!

Sorry again for causing stress!
Please do come back and see us again.

Kindest regards

Simon
