Good Hotel Guide Review
The harbour wall in front of Glyn and Menna Heulyn’s ‘popular, personally managed’ hotel on the Georgian quayside has been dubbed ‘the longest bar in Europe’ – join the locals soaking in the view, then spend the night in one of the ‘comfortable, colourful’ bedrooms. Harbour-facing rooms in the original harbourmaster’s building are reached via a winding staircase; rooms in the converted warehouse next door (two with a terrace overlooking Cardigan Bay) are particularly spacious. ‘Well equipped and smartly styled’, all rooms have posh toiletries, Welsh blankets, a Roberts radio. The bar, where ‘happy, motivated’ staff ‘truly look after’ visitors, is where the ‘real buzz’ is. Welsh and English are spoken; ‘you get the sense that the Harbourmaster is a part of this pretty fishing port, rather than just being located here’. In the maritime-cool restaurant, chef Ludo Dieumegard’s dishes, perhaps Cardigan Bay crab and parsley salad, chilled pea soup, brown crab fritter, give a taste of the place. Work it all off the next day – the Wales Coast Path goes right by the front door. ‘The team at this hotel could teach many in the hospitality business just how it’s done.’ (LW)
