“At last a dog friendly hotel that treats everyone equal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

The Conrah is one of those gems that you want to tell everyone about. The staff were very helpful and friendly from the time of booking till checkout, nothing was too much trouble. A dog friendly hotel that matches it claims, a blanket, bowl and welcome treat for Dusty (the dog) and a comfortable bed and excellent facilities for the two legged guests. The deluxe room was in the courtyard, it was large and beautifully appointed with a view over the grounds and hills in the distance which became mesmerising to watch the changing weather and the hotels sheep (understandably the only part of the grounds that you were asked not to walk the dog).
Having a son at Uni in Aberystwyth I shall be returning to the area over the next few years and I know where I will be staying with or without Dusty dog.

This hotel was very friendly and lovely rooms, the view from our room was excellent, the food was very good with very good large portions. We stayed in a luxury room and it was well worth the extra money.

I have lost count of the hotels that say they are "doggie friendly" then when you get there you are made to feel "awkward". The staff at this little haven, with fantastic grounds for walking and a view to the mountains beyond, couldn't have been more welcoming to us and our Airedale pet, Ella. We stayed in the cottage annex (very comfortable bed!) and Ella was given her own bowl, and to her her delight, a Bonio biscuit (and her very own sausage at breakfast!!) Understandably, she wasn't allowed in the restaurant but we were served our food in a very comfortable lounge with stunning views over the grounds - and Ella loved watching the sheep through the window! Being not too far from fantastic countryside walks and beaches, this is an ideal place to stop with your four-pawed friend!

Booked last minute at this hotel and was given a deluxe room. When we arrived I asked how was a deluxe room different from a normal room. The response was..its the view. Well we arrived in the dark so that hardly sold it to us.

The hotel was very brightly lit and the room temperature in the dining room and the bar was ridiculously hot. The radiators were too hot to touch. When this was pointed out we were told by the serving staff that they like to be warm! It felt like an old folks home

The food was Ok.

The deluxe room in one of the annex cottages was actually very nice and comfortable. I would recommend it for a weekend or an overnight stay but a week would be too much.

Room Tip: Ask for a cottage deluxe room. The difference is worth it.

This is a very pleasant country hotel 6 minutes drive south of Aberystwyth. Many bedrooms have fine views over the surrounding countryside. There's ample parking. We had a warm welcome. Breakfast was very good. Staff were helpful and organised a taxi into town for us. Our room was comfortable and spacious although the en suite was a bit disappointing - dark and poor toiletries - bring your own soap! The dining area and bar were big and airy but the other public areas could do with a facelift. All in all we would recommend this hotel.

I enjoyed my two visits, 4 nights each, to the Conrah. Although some of the decoration (carpets, wallpaper) on the second floor are rather tired, this apart it is smart, well presented, comfortable. It's location, set back from the road, gives great views and the impression of an almost private valley.

The two rooms I stayed in were a good size, well appointed. The staff were excellent - very friendly, welcoming and helpful. I ate in the restaurant most evenings, and the food was well cooked and presented, although after several nights it would have been nice to have seen a bit more variety on the menu. Overall, well recommended, and I would certainly choose it again if I am in that area.

Stayed at hotel at a weekend after reading some positive reviews. The main driveway is worn out with divots and holes, there are no lights in the car parking areas. Arrived to find wedding party in full swing and bride and other spilled out on the main entrance, despite that fact they had a separate function room booked with booming music until 1200 midnight. Allocated room in out building with poor lighting outside, would imagine in very wet weather or winter this would be very inconvenient. The young man explained that heating could be turned on from the corridor, one room complained of being too hot and another very cold. Brown carpets looked in need of a good clean, room was cramped with insufficient wardrobe space and old fashioned furnishings and chintzy décor, outdated and cluttered.
Bathroom adequate but not luxurious. Breakfast fried, one piece of bacon and other items carefully portioned, edible but not memorable. Toast tasted as it had been frozen. Nice views of gardens, but similar can be seen free all over the local area, not the easiest place to find in the pitch black, would try elsewhere when next in area.

Room Tip: try main building??
