Trefeddian Hotel

On a hillside above a championship golf course, the Cave family's hotel, a large white, much-balconied building, has 'glorious views' over Cardigan Bay. Trefeddian has two loyal constituencies. During school holidays, it is a magnet for families with children, who enjoy the games room, the play areas, and the outdoor life in the grounds and beyond. In quieter periods, 'many of our fellow guests are elderly like us, profiting from a special tariff'. Attractions include the 'freedom from piped music, a blessing'; the 8 am newspaper delivery which 'is welcome to people like us who stay indoors for a fair part of the day'; the car park, 'cunningly hidden' so as not to interrupt the views. The bedrooms, traditionally furnished, are thoughtfully equipped: a 'generous' hospitality tray; a 'comprehensive' information pack; good bedside lighting. In the formal dining room ('which runs like clockwork'), chef Tracy Sheen serves a traditional English/French menu on a daily-changing menu. Breakfast is 'better than most', with an 'impressive' buffet which has a wide choice of fresh fruit, cheeses; 'first-class' cooked dishes. (Ken and Mildred Edwards, and others)
  • If only all hotels were run as well as this. All staff are well trained. Help is on hand for guests with disabilities. There are many quiet corners with comfortable armchairs. Comfortable beds. first-class reading lights. Food of a high standard. The dining room runs like clockwork.

  • This excellent hotel has kept its freedom from piped music - a blessing. It has glorious views over Cardigan Bay and the golf course. It ran smoothly and all staff were friendly; many are local. Our room was comfortable and had plenty of storage space. Food and service are excellent. The Cave family create a homely atmosphere.

  • We visited the hotel for the first time this weekend, and thoughly enjoyed the stay. I found the service first rate. The chambermaids, waitresses and bar staff were efficient and curteous. A stunning location with excellent food and pleny of choice. Spotless accommodation with comfortable beds. The decor is tasteful rather that modern, but that adds to the classic charm of the place.
