My husband and I plus our 2 very young kids stayed at Fron Haul over the bank holiday weekend in the Bridge room.
Good points: Amazingly large room, extras like a fridge stocked with fresh milk, bottled water on the bedside, a separate large bath for the kids, huge shower, amazing views over the beach and estuary, free parking across the road, wifi (in an area of Wales with terrible phone reception, so this is really helpful), an enormous bed with fluffy bkankets and pillows, and my favourite bit, breakfast delivered to your room. It's so awkward staying in some b&b's where you have to make your way down to a breakfast room and make polite conversation whilst trying to keep your kids from throwing toast everywhere because they're bored. Having a tick sheet, delivered to your room and a table and chairs to sit at was amazingly helpful and less stressful. All the other rooms seemed to have kids too, which always puts you more at ease as a parent.
Bad points: There only a few small faults - we ran out of loo roll, but couldn't work out how to ask for more until the next morning (quick trip to the Londis), we didn't have any sheets for the sofa bed for our eldest, so she had to sleep on a towel the first night (to be fair, we also seem to have deleted the attachment which told us how/when to contact the owner, so there probably was a way), given it was a beach holiday the floor could have really done with a hoover during our 3 night stay, and the bathroom was a little cob-webby. They are such small things though, and we should have really remembered to print the details/not delete the info email.
We'd definitely recommend it and stay there again. We'd probably be slightly more prepared next time though by reading what we were meant to in case we had any issues.
