Early in the season, we were the only guests but we enjoyed the break.
The hotel is located a few yards from the pebble beach with immediate access to the coastal path. Parking is right outside the entrance and access to the rooms easy. A warm welcome and friendly owners who run the hotel and who also cook good food. A small comfortable bar but more than adequate. Views from the rooms and dining room are very nice, look out for spectacular sunsets.
There's not much to do in the immediate vincinity but that was not why we were there, so no matter.
As a base for walking the coastal path and for visiting places such as New Quay (a few miles South) and Aberystwyth ( a few miles North), the Devils Bridge ( a few miles inland) and many other attractions, this is a good place.
Would we return? Yes.

We have just returned from a three night stay at this hotel. We arrived earlier than anticipated and were warmly welcomed by George ,mine host. He showed us to our bedroom which was spacious and very clean. It had marvellous views from the 3 windows. 1 to the sea and the others to the hills. We met Paul(the son)at breakfast and he is a one off. He is passionate about the history of the hotel and the local area. A great raconteur. We also met Jayne who is I think a Jill of all trades. A very friendly,charming and efficient woman. It is a pity about the stony beach but their are plenty of walks as the coastal path is now fully open. Paul is only to happy to give help on walks and places to visit. Well done to all at the hotel.

Room Tip: we had the large corner room, lovely views

We were only there for two nights but it was a rare pleasure. The hotel couldn't get closer to the rocky beach, the sky is huge and at night the light pollution is minimal. The rooms are spacious, well appointed, comfortable, light and airy. The home-cooked food is excellent. The dining room is not crammed, the maximum number of customers is set that they can still turn out the consistent quality cooked food even if they are full.

A brilliant place for a weekend getaway. Within a couple of hours drive you've got Snowdonia,all of mid-Wales and down as far as Pembokeshire. However, you might just walk along the beach (or the Wales coast path which passes within feet of the Hotel).

The hotel does not do meals on a Sunday but finding food was easy. Llanon village just up the road has a couple of pubs with grub, Aberaeron a few miles down the road has everything from Fish and Chips to gourmet food. Bags of choice.

We are certainly looking forward to our next trip here.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view. Most have I think.

Normally, we would reserve 5 stars for somewhere luxurious with meticulous attention to detail and outstanding service. Plas Morfa doesn't tick any of these boxes, so why the 5 stars?? From the outside, the hotel lacks any real character, sitting isolated in its unremarkable grounds looking out across the Irish Sea. We reached it along the coastpath from Aberaeron and were moved to wonder what on earth it was doing there, just a few meters from the shingle beach with scarcely another building in sight. Finding the front entrance was something of a challenge - it's not that obvious! But once inside, we were greeted warmly by the only member of staff we ever saw - she was room service, cook, waitress, barmaid - and we it seemed, were the only guests. So, despite arriving 3 hours before we were due, our multi-talented host showed us to our spacious bedroom and left us to enjoy the peace and quiet of 'our' hotel. The room was huge - not especially luxurious or clean for that matter (not dirty, but just not clinically spotless), but the views out of the many windows were magnificent. The bed was huge and comfy and the bathroom perfectly adequate.
Later that evening, we drank in the bar (alone) and then went through to the restaurant (tastefully fitted and decorated) and ate (alone). The food was excellent. It's not often that the cook takes the order and serves up the food, but she has to be complimented on top-quality cuisine.
We left the bedroom windows open so we could hear the rhythmic sounds of the waves breaking on the shore. That ensured a perfect night's sleep. And to round off our stay, a perfect breakfast prepared and served once again by our versatile host.
So why 5 stars? Simply because we had walked 4 long days along the Ceredigion coastpath and needed somewhere to stay that gave us good food, peace and quiet, a long and undisturbed night's sleep away from the hustle and bustle of coastal tourism. And that is exactly what Plas Morfa provided. It's not luxurious, and yes it is in need of a major overhaul, but none of that mattered one bit. We loved it.

Top hotel. This is the second time we've stayed here. The people who run it are great, the food is superb and the views from our room were stunning. It was so good we re-booked it for next year when we left.

Room Tip: Room one has the best views
