The Cartref Guest House was the nicest place that we stayed at on this trip. The room was clean, comfortable and modern. Linda and Mike were gracious hosts. Breakfast was delicious. We also enjoyed walking around beautiful Aberdovey.

We stayed at Cartref Guest House for four nights in May 2013.
Very friendly owners and always helpful. We had a nice room in a quiet location. The room, the bed and the ensuite are absolutely comfortable and modern.
From Cartref Guest House everything's in walking distance - the beach, the station, the restaurants.
We enjoyed our stay at Cartref and would recommend it.
Best regards Birgit&David

This is an extremely comfortable, friendly and well run guest house. The accommodation is excellent, spacious with great views and quite peaceful. Lovely breakfast, easy access to beach, plenty of parking and really helpful and thoughtful owners. We would recommend this highly and will hope to return!!

Originally booked in for 2 nights after a tour of North Wales having stayed in 3 previous bed and breakfasts - all excellent. Have to say that, although booked for 2 nights, we extended our stay to 3 nights as everything was so perfect at Cartref, breakfast , room, our friendly hosts and the surrounding area. Linda and Mike we wish you well in your new venture - you deserve success.

Room Tip: We had room 1 at the front of the house, excellent facilities.

Reviewed 20 April 2013

We stayed at Cartref Guest House in early April when we visited Aberdovey (and Wales) for the first time. Our welcome was incredibly warm, and I felt as though I had already known Linda for ages, having just emailed with her before our arrival. Mike is just as friendly and they both are perfect hosts. We were treated to tea and fruit bread in the very pleasant guest living room on arrival, and had a wonderful visit with Linda and Mike, who gave us lots of good ideas on the area and things to do there. Linda had made reservations for us for dinner at two local restaurants, both an enormous success. Cartref is within an easy walking distance of the main part of town, and is just across the road from the access drive to the train station. At Mike's suggestion we spent a day taking the train up the coast to Harlech Castle (and back), which was incredible...the train ride was a great way to see the coast, and the castle was breathtaking.
Our room was large, immaculate, and extremely comfortable. The en suite was very new and clean and well appointed. Breakfast was delicious, ample, and the menu was very flexible. Any special requests we had made with our reservation were very pleasantly met. By the second day we had gotten to know the other guests in the very attractive breakfast room, and were sorry when it was time to leave. We wished we had planned more time for Cartref and Aberdovey! Obviously we heartily recommend Cartref and Linda and Mike as an excellent place to stay in Aberdovey. We look forward to visiting there again!

Room Tip: I expect all the rooms are comfortable. Ours had a king-sized bed, which was very nice.

Stayed for one night over the Easter break. Lovely warm welcome as soon as we arrived - with the offer of drinks and yummy chocolate biscuits or shortbread. Linda was a breath of fresh air, knowledgable of the area and full of enthusiasm for this lovely seaside town.

I have been coming to Aberdovey since I was a child and have to say that this visit was by far one of the best. Even our two children were quietly impressed. Especially as we had WIFI, a must for any teenager! The rooms were immaculate, beds comfy and warm and the shower powerful and hot.

Breakfast was plentiful and delicious setting us up for the day ahead. Try Pharoahs Cellar Bar for a delicious meal, varied menu and something for everyone.

I would, and have already, recommended Cartref Guest House - Linda and Mikes B & B to friends and family. We will definitely be back.
