Good Hotel Guide Review
The quayside setting of this bright-blue hotel in the original harbourmaster’s house is pretty special, with a feel of Brittany about it. Inside, it’s just as lovely. ‘When entering the hotel you feel you have opened a treasure chest,’ writes one reader after an ‘amazing’ weekend. Once known as The Red Lion, it is now a local hub ‘buzzing with people’. The service is ‘excellent, always delivered with a warm smile’. Smart bedrooms are spread over three adjacent buildings. All those in the main house have a sea view. Serious ‘attention to detail’ includes Frette bedlinen, Melin Tregwynt blanket, fresh milk, and Molton Brown toiletries. Warehouse rooms are spacious, with a ‘super-stylish’ bathroom. Aeron Queen has a balcony, a velvet sofa, minibar and freestanding zinc bath. In the restaurant, Ludo Dieumegard’s cooking is a showcase for locally farmed and fished produce – perhaps pan-roast cod with Jerusalem artichoke, hispi cabbage and salsa verde. At breakfast there is the full Welsh with Penlan bacon, local sausages and laver bread; avocado sourdough, Welsh rarebit. ‘The food was fabulous.’ (FT, and others)
