This place was fantastic. Located a 5 minute walk from the city center (small town, but hey!), the rooms were huge (we stayed in the Captain's and the Coxswain) and the breakfasts were delicious. I really liked that you could pick what you wanted for breakfast too, and I'm a sucker for galaxy hot chocolate packets in the rooms.
Beds were comfortable, and the premises were beautiful. All the rooms have a nautical theme, and skylights, which really make the rooms feel extra spacious. They're also lined up like a motel, with your own door to the outside, so you don't feel like you're disturbing anyone if you come home drunk on delicious Welsh cider.
Ahh, but then there are some bad things. The B&B is run by a relatively young couple, so you'd think they'd be pretty up to date with some WiFi for the place, but you'd be wrong. There's an ancient packard bell laptop in the breakfast room (they don't even MAKE those anymore), but it doesn't connect to the internet. The other thing I wasn't thrilled with was the thinness of the walls. The first few nights was fine, but then another couple checked into the room next to us and all hell broke loose. We could hear this person (or maybe it was both of them?) snoring ALL night. Loud enough so that we turned the television on to cover the noise, but even at a fairly high level, all we could hear was the snoring. They should really fix that.
Overall, I thought the size of the room was good, but the thin walls and lack of wifi didn't quite justify the 80 pounds a night we paid. I'd recommend it, but only if you can get a lower price.
