Good Hotel Guide Review
At the end of a jiggledy single-track road up a steep hill, Paula and Peter Thompson’s ‘very family-friendly’, ‘super little hotel’ stands out for its simplicity and folksy charm. With oak beams, stone walls, log fires and well-used furnishings, the 16th-century farmhouse and 18th-century granary appeal to guests who come for the ‘splendid’ welcome and ‘laid-back’ atmosphere. Characterful, ‘spotlessly clean’ bedrooms reflect the age of the buildings; some have small windows (guests this year thought their room gloomy). For a laugh, choose the room with a walk-in wardrobe in what might once have been a latrine. Gather for aperitifs in the homey lounge – ‘a wood-burner makes it cosy’ – then sit down to Peter Thompson’s ‘commendable’ candlelit dinner. Local ingredients give the flavour of the place (try Welsh rarebit with Cenarth smoked cheese; pan-fried hake, king prawns, capers); an ‘interesting’ wine list rounds out the ‘very good’ meal. ‘With a good bottle of Pouilly-Fumé and the enchanting views across Cardigan Bay, it was a magical evening.’ A fine base to explore a ‘lovely part of the country’.
