Stratford, Canada
The perfect introduction to Welsh hospitality, friendliness and humour
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Mar 2023
My sister and I stayed at this guest house two nights, at the beginning of a 5 day tour of Wales. The first thing that impressed us, the view to the beach across the way, then the entrance, a beautiful wooded front door, and from there it continued…A warm welcome by the proprietor,John, well appointed clean comfortable accommodations, a wonderful full English breakfast, informative and interesting conversation with John about the area, easy walking distance to pubs and restaurants .
We would stay there again, and are recommending this lovely Guest House to anyone we know visiting Wales.
Date of stay: October 2022

John, our host at Yr Hafod, provided excellent service and kept us laughing with his humor! Excellent location on the promenade, which runs right above the beach! Rooms were comfortable and clean also. You can select a room with an ocean view with large windows.

Room tip: Rooms facing the Celtic Sea offer excellent views

Another fantastic stay at Yr Hafod. Welcoming, spotlessly clean, great breakfast, brilliant location - everything you could hope for in a Bed and Breakfast. Would not hesitate to recommend Yr Hafod to anyone planning a visit to Aberystwyth.

Stayed at this lovely B&B as part of a tour. John was a wonderful host with good conversation and good information. Located across the road from the beach and within walking distance of restaurants & pubs. Our room was very clean, spacious and quiet. Beds were comfy and the breakfast was generous and delicious. Would definitely recommend this guest house.

My husband and I came to Aberystwyth to do ancestry research. In a guide book I had found Yr Hafod Guest House, but really had no idea what to expect. We could not use our phones to direct us to the Guest House so we stopped at a gas station to ask for directions. First the manager said he knew the place and went to print google directions, then a patron began to tell us directions, then a second patron said, "I'm going downtown, just follow me I'll take you there." What kindness and generosity. These people prepared us for the gracious, kind, funny, professional, and efficient host we would have at Yr Hafod, John. With his own hands he has designed the 5 ensuite bedrooms that overlook the Cardigan Bay and this day's crashing seas and wild winds. Our room was perfect. The bed just the right feel for a great nights sleep, the detail wood work and plaster in the room was so exquisite. The bathroom was well situated. We had coffee, tea and biscuits for an early morning or late evening snack. Best of all in a series of bests were the two chairs that swiveled to look out our dormer window to the sea and the wonderful life that passed beneath our window each day into the night. Aberystwyth is a lovely town, filled with all sorts of things to do. If you want a fun, challenging, interactive vacation with great food, perfect hikes or perhaps a look into your family's distant past at the National Library of Wales, you will love visiting Aberystwyth. I hate to leave, especially our lively morning chats with John over his "proper Welsh breakfast." Thank you John for one of best vacations ever.

Room tip: Ask for an ensuite with an ocean view.

We booked the apartment for 3 nights to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary. The apartment was absolutely lovely. Plenty of room in the apartment. Comfy chairs in the bay window to sit and take in the view ( the most amazing view at that ) A walk in shower/wet room ( always a bonus as I am an amputee) with complimentary shower gel and hair conditioner and a hair dryer. Cleanliness and decor is excellant throughout the guesthouse, beds really comfy. Complimentary tea/coffee/chocolate and mint chocolates as well. John was the perfect host, very amiable, great sense of humour and serves the most delicious full welsh breakfasts, including cereal, toast etc, really sets you up for the day. Whether you just want to sit and watch out for the dolphins or take a lovely stroll round the bay, Yr Hafod is the best guesthouse to book. Supurb is the word to describe Yr Hafod

Room tip: Always book a sea view room, worth paying for
