“Oh dear”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

Not a very welcoming b&b,and the room was very out dated, the on suite was really quite dirty, the bin had not been emptied from the previous occupant and contained "used sanitary towels” the only person who spoke to us was the cleaner/chef needless to say I would not recommend this establishment and will not be returning.

Stayed here when attending the food festival in Cardigan. Found the room to have everything you needed - shower was good and everything was exceptionally clean. Breakfast in the morning was good and location close to town centre. Limited parking is the only downside.

Reviewed 28 June 2012

We were booked into this guesthouse for 2 nights before heading downtown.

room was located on the highest floor, therefore to drag our heavy luggage up the stairs was a pain. but manageable. the inn had a rather English homely feel to it. and the best part was that there was a book rack between the levels that offers diff storybooks that one can borrow to read and relax.

the inn is located rather close to town and walking within 5 mins will get u there in no time. it was chilly during the summer, thus bumping into cafes to get a cup of hot chocolate does me nothing, but warmth and comfort. H&M just down the street has some rather awesome offers for gals' shopping and for the guys, u could just hit the pubs and get some beer and watch the Eurocup!

breakfast was warmly served and literally prepared fresh when u arrived into the restaurant, eggs done accordingly to how u wished for it. =P

1 downpoint would be the water pressure and temperature in the shower, it was fluctuation thruout my showers, but comforted by snuggling into the warmth of the bed.

thank u for making it a home away from home trip.

Reviewed 16 May 2008

We had a family room "There is an ensuite shared between the rooms" (it wasn't! It was shared BY the rooms. there is a differenced!) but we did have a sofa to watch TV from!

Last thing at night the plumbing started making about an 80 decibel noise after brushing teeth! Amusing (not), but it subsided after 10 minutes, even though water was not running. Turning the tap on stopped it!

Using the loo at 6am was great for noise, too. After the flush the water screamed for about an hour!.

Even so the bed was comfy. The parking was in the College Car Park, just up the road, reasonably convenient.

The Highbury can't make up its mind what type of establishment it is. It feels more like a commercial hotel, but it;s kitted out for tourism.
