Good Hotel Guide Review
‘A bustling place, popular with locals and visitors’, Glyn and Menna Heulyn’s small hotel stands on the quayside of this pretty fishing village. It remains a favourite among Guide readers. ‘It continues to be an enjoyable place to stay,’ say returning guests this year. ‘The staff are exceptional, and the place is still personally managed, which makes a huge difference. Customers are truly welcomed and looked after.’ Pick one of the stylish, colourful bedrooms (Welsh blankets, posh toiletries, a Roberts radio); the best have panoramic views of the harbour and sea. ‘Our large first-floor suite had lovely new chairs – we could’ve sat in them all day.’ In fine weather, harbourfront animation ‘adds to the atmosphere’: ‘watching the children catching crabs while their parents sit on the harbour wall in the sunshine is like holidays used to be’. Blend in with locals in the ‘buzzy’ bar, or book ahead to try chef Ludo Dieumegard’s ‘excellent’ dishes, perhaps ‘very, very tender’ local lamb rump, in the breezy restaurant. Breakfast is worth waking for: pancakes, organic porridge, ‘particularly fine smoked salmon and scrambled eggs’. (Lynn Wildgoose)
