We treated ourselves to a fabulous weekend at The Harbourmaster in the Aeron Queen. Although it's the most expensive room, it was worth every penny to sleep with the huge doors open overlooking the harbour and the sea breeze blowing in all night. If you are looking for an early quiet night, this room is not for you on a warm summers night, as the revellers and the great atmosphere from the bar spill outside. There are lots of quieter rooms in the hotel. Bed is huge with beautiful comfy linen and pillows, bathroom has a lovely roll top bath big enough for two. The food and service is superb. Squid with chorizo, Carlingford Oysters, Lobster with Asian slaw all absolutely faultless, I could eat the Squid for my last supper! Breakfast can be taken as late as 11.45am in the bar (main menu only, no buffet but choice is perfectly adequate). Welsh rarebit was perfect brunch to set us up for lovely walk to New Quay, beautiful views. If I could add one more luxury it would be turndown service, so maybe 4.5 overall! We will absolutely be back.
