Reviewed 16 July 2013

Stayed whilst on business in New quay and was impressed with this hotel
Stayed in room 2 which is a ground floor room at the front of the hotel so does not have a sea view but at £70 inc breakfast was good value
Staff were friendly and efficient and the Welsh breakfast was very nice.
On arrival a couple coming out of the hotel said the food was very poor which put me off eating at the hotel. So we ate in the harbour area.

Refurbished to a good standard I would and will stay there again.

Loved it here, fantastic views from the beer garden and just a short walk down to the harbour. Great atmosphere in the pub. Our room was a cheaper one, quite small but decorated beautifully, and you could really tell it was all done to a high spec. The bed was really comfy. I would recommend staying in a sea view room though as I saw one of them and it looked even nicer and bigger. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and the breakfast had good variety, they made whatever we asked for, and again there were lovely views from the restaurant.

Whilst the pub itself has been recently refurbished the weather was so sunny on our last visit that we only used their large, well appointed garden which has great sea views. Although the menu was not that extensive both my wife and I found something to eat from the specials board. The food was absolutely fine, as was my beer ('Doom bar'), and we will definitely return next time we are in the area. Well done.

What a place, could not fault it great beers,food and coffee with smart attentive staff. A credit to the owners for the refit. Will be back next year. Great outside areas for kids in a beer garden with views to die for. Great for dolphin spotting

I was amazed at the changes that have been made at this historic Pub recently.

It is so light and airy with excellent accommodation and food.

I stayed not long after they re-opened as a hotel so there were a few finishing touches to be made but could see that the product was of a high standard so I am assuming the rest will follow in the same vein. this is definitely the best place to stay in New Quay.

Stumbled upon this hotel by chance after travelling around for just under 2 wks and sleeping in our van we decided a hotel was in much need.
So we turned off the main rd and headed down to New Quay, not realising what a lovely little seaside town it was and found this hotel.
We were offered two rooms, one on the ground floor and one on the top floor with sea views. As soon as I saw the views I knew this was the one for us, number 9. Slightly more expensive but well worth it. The room was immaculate along with the bathroom.
The hotel has ample car parking along with a very large beer garden and childrens play area. They also allow dogs into the beer garden and are quite happy to supply water troughs for them.
We had our eveing meal in the restaurant. Starters were lovely, however, we ordered two steaks, aberdeen angus sirloin and a welsh ribeye and asked for them both to be cooked rare. The ribeye was cooked perfect but the sirloin was medium, I informed the staff but also told them I would eat it and they offered us a free drink for the mishap.
Breakfast was great, you could order what you wanted and nothing was too much for the waiting on staff.
Overall, a great location with very good staff. Would definately recommend this hotel and would stay again if ever in the area.

Room Tip: No.9, sea views. On the 3rd floor but well worth it.

We stayed on the first really sunny weekend in June this year, and New Quay itself looked stunning in the sun. The Black lion has been wonderfully refurbished, the room (8) we had was beautifully decorated, with the most comfortable king sized bed in it, and wonderful bathroom facilities. I have certainly had much worse rooms and facilities in supposedly much grander and more expensive hotels.
The breakfast is lovely, freshly cooked when you decide what you want, again to a high standard.
Remember this is an INN, so the menu in the restaurant is predominately pub grub, but very good pub grub with a few specials on boards, which were again very good.
Overall an excellent place to stay with accommodation and food of an order much higher than you would expect.
The only issue some might experience is that the Inn is a few hundred yards up a steep street from the harbour, and there are stairs within the Inn.
