“The Lighthouse Llandudnow”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Absolutely the best B&B we've ever stayed in. The Lighthouse is a beautiful place to stay. Ray and Fiona are the nicest people and so welcoming. They could not do enough for us. The cooked breakfast was fantastic each morning in a beautiful dining room. We stayed in the Telegraph Room which was absolutely beautiful. We had rain and strong winds overnight but felt warm and cosy in our room. Ray took us up on the roof and it was beautiful to see the sea views. We had an absolutely fantastic time there.

A very friendly welcome from Ray & Fiona- we had chosen the Telegraph Room for two nights- charming nautical decor (I just love the telescope tubes & strong wooden shutters for battening down the hatches) & phenomenal views. We stayed at the end of the Valentine's weekend and were delighted with all the heart shaped chocolates. No matter what time of day we returned, tea and amazing biscuits were on offer. We also enjoyed Jordan's fantastic piano playing.

The room is more of a mini suite- a lovely warm cosy sitting room complete with a games compendium and DVD player, plus the Grade 1 listed ladder to the roof. I note that some reviewers have commented on the condensation in this room- this is to be expected in an old stone building, and we found a combination of the dehumidifier and the provided squeegee solved the problem.

Breakfast was plentiful, and served round one big table- makes for a much better atmosphere than the usual B&B whispering. A great selection of cereals, jams & cooked- one of us would have liked Marmite as well, but we really are nitpicking here!

We will definitely return- (will try to book the Lamp Room next time after reading the reviews).

This was booked as a 50th birthday present, a true quirky experience, we stayed in the lamp room which had spectacular views and we saw lots of wild life. Fiona and Ray could not do more for us from sharing there passion for the lighthouse to an amazing cooked breakfast next morning. Very quirky.

This Lighthouse takes you back to Victorian times and unique. Ray And Fiona were very good hosts, with Ray meeting us by our car with an umbrella as it was pouring with rain. The first night we stayed in the Lamp room and the second night in the Telegraph room. You feel you are going back in time and the whole experience was great. The breakfast was very nice and very tasty. I can’t fault it.
The only down side and this was due to us booking in January was it was very cold in the lamp room. This is a Grade II listed building therefore they are limited as to what they can do. Fiona had heaters in there but watching TV with a blanket over me I could still feel the cold although my wife didn't mind. However this did not spoil the experience and you have to expect that if you book in January. The Telegraph room was a lot warmer. The view from the Lamp room is to die for!

Room Tip: Wear warm clothes in the Winter

Being well travelled I feel qualified to say that this is one of the most beautiful places on earth.
The lighthouse is 2 miles from anyone else, which made for a stunning weekend comprising a walk across the cliffs ide amongst cashmere goats to watch a stunning sunset.
stayed in the lamp room which although quite cold was gorgeous and authentic with a panorama of the sea where we actually saw dolphins!!
Although serendipitous regarding the weather and wildlife the weekend was made truely memorable by a beautifully welcoming and accommodating ray and fiona (landlord and lady) and their son, who treated us to a rendition of ludovicio einuadi's I giorni on piano.
can't thank you 3 enough for a great experience!

We always wanted to visit The Lighthouse and I am glad that we finally did! I was glad to find out that we could use the kitchen for to make tea or use the microwave, and will take that into consideration the next time we visit. The Lamp Room needs a reservation of a year in advance, so we will be sure to make plans early!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Principle Keeper's Suite which was 2 rooms, but up a flight of stairs.

This was a real highlight of our trip. Ray had to leave early to meet his son (at school), but Fiona was a great hostess. She's very proud (and rightfully so) of the history of the building, and took the time to show us some fantastic old press clippings and even more fantastic tour of the lighthouse - inside and out. And she pointed out some playful porpoises in the water below. She also prepared a great breakfast. We normally eat just a small breakfast, but Fiona made whatever we liked and we really "stuffed" ourselves.

We stayed in the lamp room, and it was a beautiful suite. Warm and cosy (in spite of cool December winds), and we didn't even use the extra electric heaters provided. An extra plus is that's it's on the "ground floor" - so no carrying luggage up stairs.

When we were ready to check out, we didn't realize that they only accept checks and cash (no cards). Since we don't have a checking account in pounds sterling, we thought we'd have to run into town to a cash machine. Fiona said not to worry about it, and to just send her the remainder when we got home. A very trusting individual! And we really appreciated it, since we had to drive to Heathrow to leave the same day.

If I could recommend one thing, I'd say that the web site should remind everyone to bring cash. All in all, a great experience and one I'd recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: The lamp room is great, and on the ground floor.
