After a stressful time we felt in need of some relaxation. After consulting the internet we chose Gwesty’r Emlyn and came to Newcastle Emlyn, a little country town that I have always liked.
We had room 2 which was on the first floor in annexe. It had a leather sofa, large flat screen TV and a modern bathroom. The only problem was when I was having a bath the water started to run out. I shouted to my husband who told me to tap the outlet cover and all was well! Crossing to the main hotel building at times needed an umbrella but as we come from west Wales we were prepared. We slept well as we were removed from the traffic noise.
We found the dining experience to be excellent. We liked the fact that that the attentive staff was Welsh speaking and found the other guests friendly. The food was really scrumptious. The choice at breakfast was exceptional. The only problem was that we had intended to have lunch somewhere before going home but we had eaten so much that we didn’t fancy lunch.
I found the reception staff very helpful. I had difficulty in getting internet access as I couldn’t read the small print on my kindle. I only needed access for a little time to download a newspaper and one of the receptionists helped me. The download took 15 seconds and I then went up to my comfortable sofa to read the paper.
Although we only stayed for one night we explored the little town which has many interesting shops and a castle. We also visited Cenarth, Cilgerran Castle and Cardigan.
All in all a wonderful stay. We found Gwesty’r Emlyn to be excellent with friendly management, helpful staff, wonderful accommodation and first class food. We will return!
