I stumbled across the hotel from a listing on late rooms and then came to Trip Advisor to read the reviews - only to find that there weren't any (so I'm trying to remedy that now that I'm back home).
The owners, Martin and Alison, were very welcoming and attentive. I particularly appreciated Martin coming to the car to meet us and carry our bags to the room.
The room was a large size and the bathroom was great with whirlpool bath and huge shower head - but surprisingly a tiny corner sink.
Dinner was excellent - an interesting menu, an informal atmosphere, food cooked to perfection.
However, for the price I would expect a few extras: there weren't any bathrobes or slippers in the bedroom; no olives or nuts were served with the pre-dinner drinks; the cooked breakfast was fantastic but the juices were cheap and there wasn't any yoghurt; and a 10.30 checkout does seem particularly early.
If you do stay I'd recommend a trip to New Quay - a beautiful seaside location a short drive from the hotel. You can go on a dolphin-spotting boat trip, go for a walk on the beach, or paddle in the sea.
